Well - The place is secluded, The nature is at it's best, The beach has only few wondering souls around.
All of it is very true but be aware of the setting and managing of this place or you might get your holiday quite off the rails just like we did.
First of all I never write reviews and this is my first time on the tripadvisor.- I am a happy traveler.
Booked the suite room about 3 months ago for Christmas celebrations . All communications was just excellent from the beginning with the hotels so called manager Chris.He promised me the taxi and the pick up upon the arrival. Got to the Puerto Jimenez and there was no taxi or frankly talking a car.Found our own way to the property. Chef Jeff greeted us and showed us to the room- He is one kind man and has too much to do! We found the room but we couldn't really open the doors to certain rooms that is a jacuzzi room.After few calls Chef Jeff finds out that the jacuzzi is out of the order still offers us to fill it up and use it as a bath :-) OK we moving to the next room which is our sitting room - there is no furniture ;-( Told us not to worry about the thing, relax and it will get sorted the next day or so. Room didn't have a fridge or any coffee making facilities advertised nor WIFI because we were too far from the router apparently. - I asked them straight away to move me to a different room but they reply was that they got so many people arriving in the next few days that there's no rooms available of any sort yet we came before and booked accommodation months ago.- Next day not a word was said about anything moving or fixing or trying to find a solution. When I asked again the staff just told me that the manager is coming almost coming but I didn't want to wait around and yet again spoke to Chef Jeff who told us that they will down grade from the suite to a standard room-that's OK but that should have been done at the first instance. After all I did get charged the full amount and then Manager Chris gave me some cash back and apologies. -
Menu is very limited at the canteen and the staff is not happy there either- they ran out of black tea, salad leaves and always found an excuse of some sort being at the tropics and not having a good selection of the fruit it's a shame!
We were very pleased to find Iguana Lodge which is next door where we very strongly would advice you and recommend you to go to although it's not the cheapest but it is The BEST on OSA peninsula!
