After reading reviews on several resorts that where available through our travel club we settled on the Costa Sur. We were looking for a quiet place with good food and an older relaxed atmosphere.
It truly was quiet and relaxing. The crowd was older and while some of the time share people didn't seem to happy about us "visitors" most were very pleasant and friendly.
The food however was awful. I am not a picky eater and can usually eat just about anything without complaint. If we had to eat in the restaurant I stuck to the salads or sandwiches, Everything else was not very good.
The staff is outstanding. Fernando at the front desk goes way out of his way to be helpful. I can't remember the young woman's name that is the concierge but she was also great. I don't think I met one unpleasant employee.
The rooms are very old but the kitchen in our studio was serviceable for our needs. I own a cleaning company and do have high standards of clean and this was a bit below my standards but not horrible. We were unable to use our air conditioner due to the amount of mildew it was putting out. My allergies were out of control until we just turned it off and left open the patio door and bathroom window at night.
The view from our balcony was truly amazing. We could sit with our coffee in the morning and watch dolphins and whales at play. One day an entire school off manta rays came flying past. It was soooo relaxing and beautiful.
Going in we knew that it's wasn't an expensive new resort. We just wanted an affordable quiet get away and that's what we got.
