We are currently at the FS Costa Rica and thoroughly enjoying it. We are 2 adults and 2 kids, ages 7 and 9. Couldn't wait to get home to write a review, because we are having so much fun comparing this property to the FS in Maui, where we have stayed 3 times. Both are fantastic. Here are some differences:
- there is far more pool area appropriate for kids at this property. Depths here are no more than 42", which allows our kids to stand easily, but also allows us adults to swim easily. Great family fun in the plentiful pool space. Also, kids have been having lots of fun underneath the bridge that crosses one of the pools.
--snow cones (like shave ice) offered poolside at no charge here
--towels are easily accessible by pools here, you grab them as needed from shelving (in addition to those initially provided by pool attendant)--in Maui, the attendants are the towel keepers.
--not surprisingly, more wildlife to see here--monkeys, iguanas, pizotes, amazing birds, all without leaving the property
--super hot here--it is the second week of April and in high 90s. So, hotter and more humid than Maui.
--food is comparable--very good, aiming to please and cater to what you want, a nice Latin flair/inspiration to it here.
--great 20-minute room service menu
--the standard (non-suite) rooms are closer to the ocean than in Maui--we hear and see the waves crashing from our lovely screened-in terrace (we're in a 2nd floor rm). Screen is motorized and can be easily opened or closed
--terrace is spacious, with couch, end table, another table, and several chairs. We are spending our room-time mainly on the terrace.
--beaches are slightly closer to pools, here, and there are two, versus one at Maui property
--used a kayak at no charge today--they rent them for a fee at Maui FS
Staff is very friendly, as in Maui.
Overall, a wonderful resort!
