We spent 5 days here and it exceeded our expectations. We read all the reviews and we were pleasantly surprised. We stayed in Bldg 3 (recommend as it is newer). We were warmly greeted at reception and had daily water as well as towel animals in our room. Our room overlooked the water (3336) and the balcony provided great sunset...

Just spent four wonderful days, relaxing, suntanning, walking their safe beach and eating at this all inclusive resort. Recommend this but transportation from San Jose is a bit expensive but it is a 1.5 hour taxi ride. It cost us $90 each way and bus/large van was about the same price for two people. It would be nice they added...

I am writing this review about a year late, but wanted to share my experience in April 2011. The hotel grounds were pretty secure and very well maintained. It was very different seeing iguanas roam freely around the property. There were a lot of local guests on the weekend, which was much more crowded than the weekedays we were there....

This hotel was filled with locals more than international tourists. It was pleasent, had nice amenities and I was able to get free wifi in the loby. However, the rooms were disappointing and the area was not good at all. The all inclusive part was nice however, but the best part of our trip was going to the rain forest...

This Double Tree resort is probably better for the party-minded crowd. It is relatively inexpensive and the all-inclusive rate lets you drink as much as you want. It has a fairly large number of rooms grouped in three 3-story buildings with a multiple pools but only a modest amount of additional space. Most of the deck chairs are around the...

What impressed us the most about this resort was the speed everything was looked after. If we noticed a broken light, it was fixed the next time we went past. Our toilet plugged, a phone call and it was fixed immediately. The staff here were exemplary, particularly Luis Calderone at the Quiet pool bar and Rosemary in the restaurant. We...
