I don't know where the 4 and 5 star reviews are coming from and am assuming that our taste and standards must be at a higher par than those that wrote those reviews. But this resort was not only run down but the service was the worst and there were kids on the property (it advertises to be an adult...

Just returned from Costa Rica with a two week stay at this hotel...loved it!

So, the hotel itself was pretty nice, the pool was fine and the food was pretty good, especially the Italian restaurant. But the reason I'm writing this is to worn people to not go in late March or April because it is extremely hot, it got up to 38 degrees C. I think January would have been much more enjoyable....

Where to begin....this country is beautiful. The people in this country are great, and I definitley will want to return to Costa Rica. In the beginning, before coming on this trip, my girlfriend and i read a lot of mixed reviews and were very concerned. We resided in Building 1 and it was nothing short of disappointing.
