I have to say I had never been to Costa Rica and my biggest fear was the conditions of where I was to stay.
I heard it was a third world country with all the scariness that comes with that and that there were bugs big enough to...Well you get the picture.
I felt so lucky to have found Terrazas De Ballena.
When I arrived what was waiting for me was a lovely clean well thought out resort with an amazing amount of service and amenities.
The rooms are spacious enough for two and very charming at the same time.
Yes, there are bugs but not scary and the resort itself makes you forget that there is anything outside of the beauty of this place!
The owners are warm and inviting the staff is attentive easy and very accommodating!
One of my favorite parts was the food which was always fantastic! The restaurant connected is as good or better than some of my favorites in NYC, Los Angeles, London and even Paris.
They had a delightful way of mixing it up every night with a breathtaking atmosphere as the restaurant has 360 degree views.
I felt warm relaxed and thinking that I need to buy a place here in the resort so I don't have to ever go back!
My plan is 2009 here I come Terrazas De Ballena!
