Let me just say, I was a bit skeptical of the pictures I saw online. No way could the resort live up to the views that you see. I can now say that the views we had from our Casita Deluxe were even better than any of those on the website. We were fortunate to have a few clear days with picturesque views from the Casita patio, but everything you see here is spot on.
The Spa was incredibly relaxing, the pool is beautiful, but I think it was the staff friendliness that really won me over. By mid-week, all the wait staff in the restaurants were referring to us by name and what we liked. Everyone at the resort, all the way down to the pool service knows the area and the attractions and can give you great tips on things to do and see while in the area. Even Carlota, the resort mascot (red, yellow and blue macaw) was very friendly and always had an eye on what was going on!
The food was a little pricier than what you'd find in town, but was always delicious and convenient. Only for that reason did I ding the value a bit. I've stayed in some very nice places in Costa Rica for less, but I can assure you, this place was well worth the money spent!
