We stayed at the RIU Palace for one week. The resort is beautiful, very clean and well maintained. We had a very nice room on the third floor, it was decorated nice and was very spacious. The maids that cleaned the room did an excellent job. The staff and bartenders were very attentive and couldn't be more helpful. The beach is hot because of the black sand and the water is not very clear, obviously not a typical white sand beach, but still very nice, refreshing and relaxing. The view from the beach is awesome, the sunsets are amazing and the pools are gorgeous!
We booked all of our tours thru Chris with “Issys Tours” and his staff. They were always on time and courteous, they went out of their way to make sure you were completely satisfied. We also went on a fishing Tour and had a great time, Louis was our guide and he was amazing and spoke very good English. Costa Rica has many adventures, so be sure to get off the resort and enjoy them. Overall we enjoyed the trip, beautiful place with courteous people. Pura Vida!
