Dear Mrs. Ann, So sad to read this comment. Did some researched and found all the emails from customer service and could see clearly you were offered a free upgrade to master, sometimes we do this to enhance the stay of our guests. Since you mentioned you needed a 1 st floor we left your original reservation in a deluxe and then you cancelled……That´s why this comments leaves us puzzled. We tried our best to accommodate you, this comments seems malicious and bad intended. Apologize for the inconveniences, we wish you a happy life. Best, Victoria Bonilla General Manager

Hola beercity, Thanks for your question: The nearest town is Potrero and is a 5 minute drive in car. In Potrero you can find restaurants, bars, and some nightlife. To be honest here is very quiet here and a bit secluded but still close to everything. You can walk to town if the tight is low but during night we would reccomend to take a taxi, we can help you with that, no problem. Yes, we have mini frigde in all rooms. Please let us know if have any other questions, happy to help. Pura VIda

Hola Adryan! This is not the best spot for snorkeling but right next to us in Playa Danta there is a water sport place that rents snorkeling equipment etc... Called PUra Vida Ride and we recommend for this Playa Dantita 5 minutes from here or Playa Conchal 20 minutes from here. Also there are catamaran tours that can take you to snorkel in beaches that you cannot get with a car. We have all the information in front desk with our customer service team. Please feel free to reach us anytime. Sincerely, Victoria

"ask For room in front with a clear unobstructed view to ocean"
"I think the master suites offer the best views of the property. They also have a 3br and a 5br house that can be rented."
"The ocean-view rooms are worth it, if you like sitting on your patio and looking at the water..."
"Rooms 21 and 22 are great for sunset views!"
"The beach house at the ôther side of the beach of you come with more than 5 people"
