I stayed here for a couple of nights in early December. That time of year is apparently the low season for the area as there were only a couple of other rooms at the resort occupied.
The staff was amazing! The check-in staff, the waitress, the cook and the grounds-keepers all treated the few guests like family. I'm so sorry that I forgot names to personally acknowledge them. They all speak Spanish but they go out of their way to greet and try to communicate with you in YOUR language in THEIR country.
One night, there were so few people dining at the restaurant (again, it was low season) that the cook said, "....don't look at the menu . . .just tell me what you feel like eating and I'll fix it." One of the most amazing meals ever with ingredients put together in a really imaginative way!
The rooms are basic but functional and clean. The resort is well maintained. There were usually howler monkeys in the trees and a few iguanas wandering the grounds during the morning hours (they won't approach you).
I've seen a few say that the pool is dirty. Remember, there is a canopy of trees surrounding the pool so constant leaf litter is inevitable. I saw the grounds crew cleaning the pool and patio at least twice a day, but the warm breeze and falling leaves quickly covered their hard work. Leaves don't bite!
My one and only complaint about the resort is that there is nothing else to do in the area. It's a $15-$20 cab ride (each way) to the bustling little tourist town of Playa Del Coco. Other than that, there are no stores, restaurants or beach bars within walking distance, so plan to entertain yourself if you stay at the resort.
