The hotel was very quiet and serene. The view from our balcony was amazing. Our balcony overlooked the pool and the beautiful gardens around the pool and we could see the volcano as well (only parts of the volcano when it wasn't cloudy). It was extremely quiet at the hotel, perhaps because we stayed there during the rainy season. The rooms were average but clean. My biggest complaint about the room is the bed. It was horrible. I woke up everyday feeling stiff. The food in the hotel restaurant was okay. Breakfast was much better than dinner. Our dinner was below average but the service was impeccable. The waitors in the restaurant were so kind, gracious, and polite. Franciny, the swim up bartender was really kind and funny too! She even taught us some Spanish while we enjoyed drinks and a snack at the swim up bar. The hotel bar was empty. In fact, most of the hotel seemed to be empty although the staff at the hotel told us the hotel was fully booked. If you are looking for a place to enjoy the pool and sun this is probably not the right place to stay in Costa Rica. It was pretty cloudy and overcast while we were there. If you are looking for a nice, quiet place to stay while you enjoy all the adventures Costa Rica has to offer than this hotel is pretty good.
