I ate here with my husband mostly because it's on the property of Nayara where we're staying and we were too lazy to go elsewhere. The tamales were ok but the arroz con pollo was excellent. Both were expensive for what they were. The chocolate cake was fantastic

We ate here a couple of nights. Roberto made what my husband calls the best guacamole he has ever eaten. Great vegetarian options. Wonderful breakfast buffet.

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here even though we stayed at another hotel nearby. They treated us like royalty. The food is top quality and the service is 5-star. Someone comes to your table and offers to make fresh guacamole in front of you, do it, it is the best. They surprised us with a free dessert for our anniversary and gave us a free ride back to our hotel. When we go back to Costa Rica we will be staying at this resort.

We did not stay at the hotel; however we went there for the dinner buffet and breakfast buffet. Each time we were greeted by this wonderful hostess Nancy, who explained to us about the foods they offer and the difference between the western food and the local food which is called typical food. And they had both. When I travel I like to enjoy and experience the local foods, so this place was a gem. They had a wide variety of both types so there’s something for everyone. Loved the breakfast with lots of fresh fruit and fruit juices.
Thank you Nancy for been so attentive and making us feel welcome.

Beautiful view, comfortable, good service, very nice wines. Food good, not great. Pleasant live music. Ate here twice during our stay at Nayara; not disappointed.
