Upon arrival were asked for our credit card for a $300.00 U.S. deposit to be charged and reimbursed in up to 45 days in case there was damage to the room. Very high fee! Then...

It all started with a water leak in the toilette, front desk said: "Maintenance checked and there's no leak" as I'm looking at the guys boots...

Some items (staples in Costa Rica) were on the menu daily, including plantains for breakfast and beans and rice at every meal. We found there to...

The staff is very helpful and friendly. Buffet style food at restaurants was very good! Shuttle service is a must and available frequently due to the resort being built on a hillside. Resort is not directly on the beach. But, the views of the Pacific at sunset are amazing! I would stay there again!
