Overall, this is a great hotel. We stayed 4 nights in a Ocean-View Suite which had the jacuzzi tub. The room was high tech with 2 LCD televisions and remotes to control spot lights, lamps, A/C, and blinds. The room was just phenomenal! Ate almost all of our meals at the hotel restaurant. Tried a few restaurants in Playa del Hermosa, such as Ginger and AquaSport (see my other reviews), but wished we would have stuck with the hotel restaurant. Don't miss out on Happy Hour (5pm-7pm) on the second floor. The waiters (especially Carlos and Johnny) were extremely attentive and excellent. The service here was awesome! The beach was also awesome compared to trashy Playa del Coco.
Some room improvements. The WiFi did not work in the rooms (but worked in the lobby area), and there were no computers available for use (at least that we saw). The hotel does not offer any form of transportation. They are willing to call taxis, but is extremely expensive since all of the taxis are based out of playa del coco. Average price for taxi is $15 to anywhere in the area and about $30-55 to Liberia airport. FYI, the taxi drivers told us that is a bit cheaper if you call the taxi drivers directly because if the reception area calls, the taxi drivers have to give a cut to the receptionist/front desk. The hotel needs to get a little car or some form of transportation.
As mentioned, overall great and beautiful hotel with great service.
