This hotel is beautiful. The setting is very picturesque, the rooms are great, the pool area is gorgeous. The staff are very attentive. You can walk to a small beach in about 5 minutes or the main beach in about 15/20 mins down a steep road. If you do not want to take a taxi you can walk to the top of the orad (20 mins) and get the bus which stops multiple times on the Quepos - Manuel Antonio route and costs 50 cents! Alternatively taxi's will get you most places for 8 bucks. DO NOT EAT IN THE HOTEL. The staff are really great and attentive and they do their best but the food is pretty poor and it is priced the same as the expensive (but good) restaurant's in the area. Breakfast is ok, passable. We had a nice meal at the neighbouring hotel (Issimo suites) one night. Had a great lunch at Aqua Azul (you must lunch here, the view is outstanding and it might have been the best food we had in CR). We also ate at La Luna one night, we had high expectations but it was just better than average. If they improved the quality of the food in the restaurant this place would be five star. We initially booked the parador but they were full, in the end we were happy with the change. This place is quieter, much less busy. Enjoy!
