It was our honeymoon so we booked a Master Suite room. I believe there are only 6 rooms of this type in the center of the building. We were on the 4th floor so we did hear the bar above cleaning up from around 10pm to 10:30pm. It wasn't overly loud, but if noise is of concern book on the 3rd floor. The master suite generally costs between $175 to $263. Both prices are worth it. We booked the room with frequent flyer miles for 4 nights. The room was truly amazing. The two person tub really does take a whole hour to fill. It's unfortunate that there isn't two faucets to increase fill-up time. The tub tv sound wasn't great either, but the tub was a nice touch.
The bathroom shower was amazing. It was huge and had colored lights and jets. In the past I read reviews that people couldn't figure out how to work it. I found that it couldn't have been more easier. The shower really was one of the nicest assets of the room.
We never could figure the maid out because she only left us towel art the first check-in day despite tipping her every day. The room only had intermittent wifi. Maybe another reason to book on the 3rd floor if the wireless router is on the ground floor. It did have a hair dryer and safe.
We got a couple's massage at the spa and it was one of the best massages I've ever had. The prices were like 25% off and we found that for $135 for a 70 minutes couple's massage to be a great bargain. You will find the prices in Manuel Antonio to be nearly twice the price.
The outdoor pool/springs were nice. Behind the pools they had about 5 hot springs. All the signs said they were supposed to be 104f. I found them to be more like 99f and not quite warm enough and just as warm in the larger pool with the swim up bar. The only staff member that was not friendly was the pool bartender, which seems to be the trend if you've read other reviews on the hotel. The staff at the front desk were always very nice.
We didn't have a rental car and took a taxi everywhere and found it super easy and cheaper then having a rental car. It was always $7 to $8 into town and never a problem catching a taxi back.
The included breakfast had great variety and was yummy. It's not exactly free though as they seat you and pour your coffee and then expected a tip. We would have rather just seated ourselves and got our own coffee, but oh well.
We would definitely stay here again!
