My stay here has been one of the best hotel experiences in memory. The hotel is extremely well maintained, right on the beach and the property is covered in tropical plants and trees. Mangos literally fall onto your doorstep. The beach is basically deserted and the waves are very big at times so really fun to watch. The staff are all very nice and helpful.
The rooms are extremely comfortable and very clean. We stayed in two different rooms and both were excellent.
The area is safe and nobody hassles you when you're out. We had beach fires at night and cooked our dinners over the fire while watching the most amazing lightning storms out at sea.
Mostly we just drank champagne under a palm tree in the days and watched the waves coming and going.
If you like dogs you'll really enjoy the ones living around the hotel. They'll follow you on your beach walks and hang out with you if you want them to. This really added to the charm. The hotel also has dogs which are very well cared for and pleasant to have around.
We intended to stay just one night but ended up spending almost all week and didn't want to leave. Anyone looking for a true Costa Rican beach experience would be making a great choice by staying here.
