We spent a week in this resort in a Cielo Room
Rooms - huge with an indoor/outdoor living room that can can be used for everything but sleeping. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom had a lovely soaking tub.
Resort- well spread out with plenty of sun loungers by all the pools. The pools service was good and the lower pool has free ice pops for kids all day long
Kids Club- wonderful! It was really like a well run day camp - Karen & Lillyanna were fantastic
Food - The restaurants were good, not great and in a small area of the hotel. Due to the large number of children there is not one "grown up" space - even the bar had kids fiddling on their ipads until all hours of the night. Also kids under five eat free - all meals - so parents take them to all restaurants
Babysitting - great as it is someone from the hotel but very expensive. Also, there is a a three hour minimum with a weird bus policy. Basically either your babysitter has to make an 8:30 bus or a 10:30 bus or there's a $50 surcharge. however you must come back 45 minutes to 15 minutes pre bus or the surcharge is applied anyway.
Concierge - excellent
Culture- minimal. You're in Costa Rica but you're far away from everything
Transfer from airport - horrible - they outsource this service to non English speaking drivers and manhandle all luggage
All in all - a very relaxing resort but really no need to go to CR for it. There is a complete lack of culture. Also there are kids everywhere - EVERYWHERE! And we had a child with us:). Even though kids can't sit @ the quiet pool they can scream on the grass right in front of the pool. The beaches were less crowded though you can't get lunch on the beaches b/c of monkeys. Ipads must be what parents do these days at dinner - you'd think there was an Apple Store in the bar. All in all this was a great vacation and the service was wonderful. But there's no way this is a honeymoon sot or a couples retreat - Disneyworld is more peaceful. We had a lovely break and highly recommend it for families but not for couples
