The hotel is one of the top notch hotels in the area according to our driver from the airport. The hotel itself was great and the rooms were wonderful. We were greeted with a lovely drink upon our arrival. The views from the property are just amazing. We were there during the green season so it was pretty deserted except for a handful of guests. I would recommend getting a suite room if you can. The suites are located in a separate building w/ a jacuzzi on your own private balcony. The room was pretty top notch.
Breakfast was really great with lots of different foods and drinks offered. The lunch menu was pretty decent also. Not sure if its just during the green season or what, but dinner at the restaurant in the hotel was pretty disappointing. The food wasn't that great and it was pretty expensive considering. Better bet to have a late lunch and then catch the happy hour at the bar.
There is a trail to the beach about 200 meters down the road. The trail is a bit rough at some parts, but the beach is pretty isolated. It would have been great to explore the area a bit as there were some interesting places to eat on the main road, but they were pretty far to walk to. There is a hotel shuttle that takes you to Manuel Antonio and back, but it would have been great if they made a stop in between the two locations for people to explore the area.
It was raining pretty hard 2 of the 3 days we were there so we stayed in and relaxed. The area is probably more exciting during the dry season, but since we went during the green season, it was pretty empty.
