Finishing one week here and it has been pleasantly relaxing. We were aware of the extremely remote location of this resort. Positives, The staff were terrific. Kimberly is an extremely professional asset to this resort. The Ecoplaya is undergoing some management and renovations. We stayed in the hotel ( no kitchen) section of the resort and ate all meals at the resort. The meals were good for our tastes. The winds are strong for the kite surfers and keeps most flying insects away. The room was cleaned twice and the towels and garbage done daily.
Negatives. The road coming into the resort is the worst I have ever observed anywhere anytime. They are apparently kept that way to keep the speed down for construction workers 10 minutes down the road. Watch out for the bus traffic at the end of the day the will not slow down. You need four wheel drive simply to have a higher vehicle to keep above the potholes ruts and bumps. Suggestion, bring some bug spray to spray at the doors. A towel works well too to keep the spiders, geckos, snakes, insects from entering your room. We always did a bug inspection as soon as we entered. The snake did not get in our room but did require a staff member to remove it from a sceaming guests room. Welcome to Costa Rica. The beach is OK if you just want to walk it but pick your times especially at high tide there is no beach left. The beach is one of the best in the world for kite sailing. We observed some flying 20 meters in the air and very fast. Don't go too far west as you will be illegally entering Nicaragua. All in all we planned to bring some books to read, not do too much and just relax this is the perfect resort to do that.
