This was my first trip to Costa Rica so I was not sure what to expect. My wife and I came here for our 10 year anniversary and found it to be very delightful. We have traveled quite a bit in Mexico and the Carribean but wanted to try something different. We found out about this hotel from my sister who is a travel agent.
When we arrived at the hotel there were two check points to make sure no one just showed up to the property who should not be there, so we always felt very safe. Even though we heard rumors that the nearby town of Jaco may have some crime, this location was secluded and far enough away from there, we never even saw it.
Our room was a Jr. Suite Superior and very roomy with a huge private balcony. The staff was excellent and very accomodating in every way. There was a seperate pool for just our building but the attendant at the main pool was like having your own private butler. He made you feel like he had nothing to do all day except just to take care of you. We found the same thing at the private beach. All of the staff was very service oriented. They did special things for our annivarsary, like a card with flowers on our table next to the infinity pool so we could watch the sun set. And a cake with Feliz Anniversario written on it to celebrate our 10th annaversary. I had a little problem with my travel arrangements and the conceirge spent 20 or 30 min. placing phone calls and booking taxi service and airline tickets for me.
We had a couples massage that was very relaxing and wonderful. I forgot to ask how much it cost before the massage and was expecting to get hit with an outragous bill, but was pleasantly supprised when it was only $120.
The only drawback to this property was how hilly and steep everything is. I did not realize how mountainous Costa Rica is and it makes all the roads and trails very steep. Be prepared for lots of climbing up stairs. Although there was one very slow elevator. They also have a golf cart that will take you anywhere on the property you want to go.
If you want to get away from the crowds and be somewhere peaceful and secluded with excellent service, this is the place.
