Although our stay was FINE, I thought it was the not up to parr from what I would expect from a 4 star, Small Hotels of the World Standard.
As stated no introduction or any extra effort made from the front desk staff of the hotel or where their beach was. A simple "across the street" was all of the effort we got.
Not helpful on planning our tours in the area. We did find out about "La Ceiba Tours", Jaguar Rescue Center which was incredible (got to hold baby monkeys and slothes) from Alex at the bar.
Dinner- terrible at the hotel and service worse. Don't order the "jumbo shrimp," it is substituted with little shrimp cocktail shrimp (they give you extra though since they don't offer jumbo shrimp anymore....not stated on their menu.
Breakfast - was good.
Next door (down a small road) there is great Italian food at reasonable prices cooked by a chef from Tuscany. Can't say enough! I think it is called the Black Horse in Spanish not to be confused with the Italian rest. right on the road next door.
Rooms- fine, but not even close to what we had at our many other hotels while touring the country. As another review said, you can already see the wear and tear.
Pool- small, but we were one of the only people there during their slow season so no problem. Beach- fun with some large breaking waves.
Sorry I won't return here.
