A fantastic vacation

Thank you to everyone on this board who offered suggestions and advice about our trip to Costa Rica.

We've just returned from our 2 week stay in paradise, the Occidental Grand Hotel was fantastic, we had absolutely no issues or concerns with the hotel at all - oh maybe one, we didn't have our own personal room gecko !

Will be posting my hotel review later this week and it will be very long and detailed. In the meantime I've reviewed the restaurant "Donde Johann" , "Coconuts" in Coco Bay, and the first of two reviews on "Charlie's Adventure Tours".

We loved everything about Costa Rica ! We'd go back in a second if we could. Please feel free to ask any questions !

So glad you enjoyed your vacation and looking forward to the detailed report!

Funny you did not have your own personal gecko? Very odd, as there are enough for every room ten times over! I don't like what they leave behind, but love what they eat while 'visiting' so it's all good!

Just came across your comment. Going to the Occidental Grand in the fall.

Are the steps really as bad as people are saying? And how is the beach area really? Any info you could give would truly be helpful.

thanks
