This is an expansive hotel on a large property that was once a coffee plantation. Some of the coffee plants still exist around the grounds. The facilities here make it more of a resort than a hotel and being out of the city the selection of activities and dining on-site are well appreciated. The hotel is near to the airport which was convenient after we had been travelling for a long time and we wanted to get to our room as quickly as possible. We arranged a private pick-up from the airport which was organised through the hotel. From the moment we were met at the airport through to the check in process all the staff were very friendly and helpful. This made our first visit to Costa Rica pleasant and memorable.
