I stayed here for two nights on my way to the Mal Pais. What attracted me most was then name-brand hotel credentials and the amazing looking pool with swim-up bar.
The hotel is beautiful, with an open-air lobby and lounge, and is tastefully decorated with elements seemingly from CR. I believe there are two sets of rooms. The first room i stayed in (#2092) was spacious and comfortable - but a bit noisy since it faces the road. I was upgraded to a "newer" executive suite (#2000- it's stunning) after voicing my dissatisson faction that then pool was under renovation; a project posted on their web site after I booked my trip. If you stay here after the renovation (only lasting about 1 week), you will be impressed for sure. Try to get one of their "newer" rooms.
The spa is small, and you can easily hear the reception staff talking and watching TV - but it was definitely one of the best massages I've ever had. Ask for Geselda (sp). And, it's at a fantastic price (coming from a NY'er).
The gym is good, complete with dumbbells , machines, etc .
The key benefit to the hotel's location I proximity to airport, approximately 10 minutes travel time. Otherwise, not much else to do - great small pizza shop and grocery store within walking distance.
The staff was extremely pleasant and helpful, the food was pretty good but definitely over priced (get the beef carpaccio).
