Everything was great, I had zero experience but still managed to get up after a lot of hard work and Perseverance (I am 55 anyway). It was well worth the money and if you are staying at the dreams resort nearby go for it.

Our experience mirrors what has already been said. Nuking wind and excellent kiting. The accommodations were also more than suitable for our tastes. KCR is off the beaten track in Central America and so there may be a few minor inconveniences... If you can't accept...More
