This resort would need a reconstruction because its best days are years ago. First-you will sweat at the check-in. Rooms may have quite good beds, but bathroom is like from 1990, you can see it on a photo pro our presidential suite-which should be the best room in the hotel(?). It isn't. Building 1 is probably oldest. Be careful, pool area between building 1 and 2 was very loud (staff use microphones, music etc.) Some rooms can face the parking lot, which isn't nice-and it's pretty near main road.
The place isn't nothing special-long wide beach with dark brown sand, which makes water brown too plus the main road and surrounding area. Most of people probably stay at the pools (Americans and ticos), buffet food is poor and in american style-hot dogs, pizza, french fries... It may be good for families with children but I won't prefer it for people who want to see the best from Costa Rica. But they can arrange you quite cheap boat trips to Tortuga.
Visit the hotel another time? NO.
