Pool is awesome. Beach is okay... it's gray sand. Water was warm and calm December 22 to 26, 2012. Not blue however.....it's brownish. Rooms need a little help. They are very dark even during the day because there are not enough lights. The bath/toilet/shower/sink all need updating. The linens and curtains also need to be updated. If you don't like bugs, don't come to Costa Rica. Bugs are part of the trip and if you're petrified of them, stay home :) Bring bug repelant or you will get bit by mosquitoes/chiggers/etc. (not in your room, but on the beach)
Food in the restaurant was very, very good. The chef even prepared sauces and side dishes for the mahi-mahi that we caught deep sea fishing earlier in the day and we had the best meal of our entire trip here. Restaurant is open air. They are in the process of building a whole new section of the hotel which is said to have kitchenettes and multiple bedrooms when it's complete (late in 2013). Very quiet area of Costa Rica and the side walks roll up around 6 pm. No nightlife at all unless you want to drive pretty far to a different beach.
