On a previous stay at Costa Sur we were very happy and on the basis of that experience we pruchased a TLA membership for return trips but much to our disappontment our recent trip 4/29-5/6/2013 we found that the ambiance had changed drastically. No longer is it a resort of relaxing ambiance, good food and service-it had changed into a childrens zoo-screaming children at both pools from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. we were only able to swim in a relaxed mode on two occasiona out of a 7 day stay, The food service had deteriorated to mostly buffet style service and mostly mexican type food and flavor, we also felt rushed to get seated, eat and get out. It also appeared to be a smokers paradise and at no time could we enjoy a smoke free area...not even when dining. The resort seems to have developed plumbing problems for we were not able to adequately adjust the water temp in the bathroom and the hand sink took ten minutes to drain-UGH! Just before leaving we learned that the resort management had opened the resort to local day trippers, which we assume was the reason for the zoo atmosphere. Needless to say we will not return nor recommend Costa Sur. Mel T. Kelseyville, CA.
