This place it's huge! Its about 2 miles from the front gate to the reception area. A cab from the airport costs about 100 US including 3 tolls and takes approx 1.5hrs
Once on the property, there's a shuttle which runs daily to take you around from the pools to the beach to the restaurants.
However, if u want to leave the resort and didn't rent a car or motorcycle and you need a cab, DONT ask GUILLERMO at the front desk. He will RIP you off. He's nice and all but he has his "buddy" come pick you up and charges $45US to go to Jaco that's only 12 miles away~ one way! Our cab ride back from a regular cab guy only cost $20US.
Other than that, everyone is extremely pleasant and most people at the resort speak English.. Once you're off the resort though, I highly recommend having someone who speaks Spanish or have a translator app with you.
Alex at the butterfly house is extremely knowledgeable. The guys at the canopy zipline were extremely friendly and funny. Theres a server who works at 2 of the restaurants, I believe his name is Branson who gives absolutely superb service.
There are 3 places to eat~ 1 down by playa blanca over looking the water, 2 down by the pool~ sooo recommend the whole fried snapper~ AMAZE BALLS!!! 3 the carabella which is a healthy buffet style place where you sit by the monkeys in the am. They will try and steal your food! Also, at night, carabella upstairs has "fine dinning" and you can order ala carte. The foods ok. The fresh fruit in the buffet was awesome- pineapple, guava, anos? Which is a soft creamy fruit. Man, wish I could get some here!
