Spent two nights here with a family of 5 which required two rooms. Arrived several hours before check in but they were very accommodating and held our bags while we hopped in the pool. Service was exceptional. Attentive without fawning and always accommodating. Drink and cold towel when we arrived, found us at the pool when our room was ready,... More

Amazing location. You are surrounded by wildlife. We saw sloths, capuchin monkeys and iguanas (all poolside). Sloths were in the trees (by the shop..one was called Flash) and another by the adult pool below the main pool. Everyday around 4pm there were capuchin monkeys coming round looking for mangos. Loads of good photo opportunities The views from main restaurant for... More

One of the best spots we've vacationed! Staff is extremely friendly, helpful and professional. More wildlife on their private walking trail than what we saw at Manuel Antonio Nat'l Park! Poolside was beautiful, restaurants had much to offer and the hotel's private beach was a plus. A must stay-we'll definitely be back!

Great facilities and helpful staff. Room had resident sloth in residence in the tree outside our room. Toucans and monkeys too. Good recommendations for trips and tours. Like others found the food options a bit limited - too eleborate with no simple options. Did feel a bit captive which is ok for a couple of days, but not longer. Spa... More

Classy place, very comfortable and clean. Lovely pool and grounds with lots of wildlife (sloths, raccoons, monkeys, iguana, birds). Plenty of staff usually on hand.
