We arrived at this hotel and it was a bit like a holiday camp. It was very spread out and although there were hotel minbuses around you basically had to do a lot of walking. Ten plus minutes walk from rooms to receptions or to pools etc. The grounds were fantastic, with great wildlife too. You must make the effort to go on the 6.15am bird watching tour as Alex the guide is amazing and even if you are not into bird watching, you will be amazed at what you can see. The butterfly house was another interesting walk around. The two beaches were beautiful and the swimming pools were nice too. However the rooms were disappointing. We booked the superior rooms, and thought we might get a terrace, as some had, but we were told we had a superior room, even without the little outside bit, however it did not feel very superior. The rooms were like little chalets and quite dark, however they were cleaned everyday and were quite comfortable. However there was no where to dry damp towels or clothes, apart from hang them on wardrobe doors. We also found the reception staff and main restauramt staff not the most friendly or the most flexible since when we were there, the hotel was practically empty. However the activity staff and cleaners were lovely. The downside to this hotel is that once you are there you cannot get out! It is a 2-3Km walk to the entrance and inconvenient and expensive for any kind of taxi ride, so without a car you are stuck at eating at their restaurant, which is a fixed price buffet or an expensive a la carte. We liked the restaurant near the beach but this shut at 5pm. We didn't organise any trips with the hotel as they seemed very expensive (a lot more than any other place we had visited in Costa Rica) but we felt we had to get out each day so arranged tours independently, which was easy to do. Oh and you will need a lot of insect repellent!
