This place has so much potential with it's beautiful location but unfortunately fell way short of our expectations. We had reserved a 2 BR ocean view unit which was not ready when we arrived at 5 p.m. They must have done a rush job cleaning it because it reeked of cleaning solution and still wasn't very clean. Even if it had been cleaned properly the unit obviously wasn't well maintained. The lights over the bathroom sink didn't work, the screens were torn, and the floors were sticky and dirty to the point where you didn't feel comfortable walking around barefoot. I'm not a clean freak but this place was gross and smelled bad. The service in the restaurant was horrible and the food very mediocre. People who came in after us were waited on before us, hopefully not because they were Ticos and we were gringos. We had to listen to horrible loud music coming from the pool area until late at night. The grassy area between the units and the ocean became a swamp due to heavy rain and when you walked through it smelled like you were walking through a flooded septic system. We spent 1 night there and were so miserable we called our booking agent and had them transfer our reservation to another place which turned out to be wonderful. I'm so glad we changed hotels as this was the last stop on an otherwise perfect vacation and would have been a horrible note to end on.
