I will start off by saying, this hotel and it's grounds are VERY beautiful. They have a nice open lobby area that you can sit at whenever you want. But, don't be confused this hotel is on the beach but not a swimming beach. The hotel is surrounded by large rocks, so if you want to swim or just sit on the beach, you have to go down the street. Also, the service was not good at all. I (female) was traveling alone with my two younger daughters. When we got to Costa Rica, we found that our phone did not work! We needed to call tech support, so we asked the caucasian lady with blonde hair if we could use their phone to call the USA for help with our phone. She said no, we even offered to pay and they still refused. This was a safety hazard for us and they did nothing to help.
Also, they charged us for just plain water. every. Single. Time.
Also, water pressure is terrible and sink did not dispense hot water.
In addition to that, the hotel was very noisy! Not only did a small rooster wake us up every morning but many cars and motorcycles zoomed past us several times throughout the night.
I would not reccomend this hotel.
