Went here on a honeymoon. The grounds are truly beautiful, and the location is remote feeling, yet still 10-15 minutes from some main San Jose suburbs.
It would have been perfect, but the staff is so-so and they might try to sell you a time-share type program. Seemed pretty rude, especially since we were on our honeymoon. Also, the area is fenced and gated (the norm in Costa Rica), but you have to honk your horn to get in and TWICE we had to figure out a way to let ourselves in at night because the security guard was not present.
Also, make sure you ask for an A/C'd room if you must have it, and make sure you receive regular maid service (doesn't seem to be the norm).
