This vacation was our 30th wedding anniversary. We purchased the pkg through Living Social and were not disappointed. We upgraded to a bungalow and am glad we did. Not speaking spanish was NOT a problem. I strongly recommending renting a car if visiting Costa Rica. The driving is easy, and the countryside is breathtaking. We know why so many Americans move to CR. The staff were very nice, and could not have been more helpful. The bungalow was beautiful, and unique. Their website shows the bungalows nicely, but only one of them has a refrigerator (the one in the picture), which is an additional charge. And, the rooms do not have coffee makers, which we really missed. I was told by the manager that arrangements were being made to have coffee available around the clock. He said many guests had complained about lack of ready access to coffee, and they were addressing this. Due to being close to the equator the sun is UP by 5:30 AM, but the kitchen staff do not start serving breakfast until 7:00 so getting coffee before breakfast is impossible. I suggest bringing your own coffee maker and coffee if you love your morning java as much as we do. Also no room service is apparently available, because there are no phones from which to call for service. No TV in room, but we did not miss it. We just went to sleep or read, and were asleep by 9PM. A tv is available in the community space near the bar and restuarant. No a/c either, but its also not needed. The overhead fans are sufficient. In room safe worked fine. The road to the property is rough by our standards, but apparently is not to the Tico's. We will definitely go back to Costa Rica, and maybe to this property.
