My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon. We had an amazing time! The property was beautiful. The staff was helpful and always very nice. The food was great! We were very pleased with our stay. This isn't the most authentic Costa Rican experience you could have, but it was still very nice and I'm thrilled we picked this property for our stay. I'd definitely stay again.

Our stay was wonderful at this resort! We spent most of our time on property enjoying the pools, workouts/fitness classes, entertainment and food! Kenny (personal trainer) was wonderful and we were hooked on his classes - morning yoga, aqua-fit classes were great. We wanted to bring him home with us! We found a favorite waiter named Roger and requested him each time for dinner. I can't say enough about the staff and service. We also enjoyed the daily workshops - coffee tasting, sushi making, etc.
Based on previous rave reviews we found Erik Garcia on the beach - his service is top-notch! He spent time with us right away and greeted us each time we visited the beach. He listened to what we wanted to do in the way of excursions and matched us with the perfect day trip - ziplining, tour of coffee/chocolate plantation. We had the best day and our guide/driver was like family by the days end - Keki (not sure of spelling) was great!!!!
Best advice would be to find Erik if you plan on excursions. His prices are very fair and the service is wonderful. His wife also does massages on the beach - I got two while I was there and wish that I had gotten one every day!!!
Our favorite restaurants were Faisanela and Cauri.

Room Tip: We had a junior suite and it was wonderful!!!

I was a little skeptical since it was an all-inclusive, but it was truly wonderful and exceeded our expectations. The resort is beautiful especially the pool area. The food was top-notch and the employees were very friendly and helpful. We would love to come back with the kids!

My only complaint would be that the rooms are a little cavenous by design. They have completely been redone and our beautiful, especially the bathrooms, but they are dark.

Wonderful experience! Great food, staff, drinks, property and vacation! Definitely recommend anyone looking to relax or have a true Costa Rican adventure! --By booking activities through beach vendors, you will save some money and get more of an authentic excursion! So much fun either way!

We traveled with a small group and had an amazing time at the resort:

Airport transfer:it took about 45-50 mins to reach the hotel, the drive provided us with a great intro to this beautiful country.

Check-in: very smooth, staff were very professional and quickly got us checked in

Rooms: the villas we were in were in great condition and very spacious. excellent linens. mini fridge stocked daily, we did have an issue with our hot water on the first day, but within 20 mins maintenance had it corrected. House keeping was excellent, we returned to our room every day to find it spotless.

Restaurants: the food ranged from good to excellent in the a la cartes (Faisenella on the low scale to Mediterra on the highest). The buffet was great for breakfast and lunch and always had enough variety. The staff at the restaurants were very attentive to our needs.

Offsite dining: although we were at an all inclusive we decided to try the Golden Shrimp as many have recommended on this site and on the advice of our tour guide. Glad we did! the food was excellent. Note they will pick you up from the hotel no charge, just ask the bell hop to call the restaurant for you.

Pool: Perfect! and the pool bar was great too! there were always enough loungers available to find your own space. the staff keep the pool area spotless, cleaning it every morning.

Golf course: we golfed 5 days, the course was fun even though some of the greens were undergoing maintenance. The staff at the course are exceptional Jorge, Fernando and Geraldo (and the rest) look after you and your equipment in a first rate manner. We were there during the "slow" period so we basically had the course to ourselves. Lots of animals and birds to see on the course.

Tours: we went with Swiss tours and Paulo was our rep at the hotel, we had a great experience doing the zip lines and river cruise. No issues whatsoever, our guide (Rodrigo - wealth of knowledge) and transport were topnotch.

Staff: They truly made our holiday incredible. The shuttle drivers, pool attendants, servers, front desk, golf course attendants, concierge, and maids all had a smile and worked hard to ensure we were taken care of. A special thank-you to Francina from the front office who looked after our group.

Resort: the grounds are stunning and well looked after. It is a fairly large resort, which makes the shuttles they provide a convenient transportation mode. We opted to walk quite a bit as it was very pleasant on some evenings.

Can't wait to experience this again!

Room Tip: closer to the main pool, this puts you near the restaurants also

Just experienced the most unbelievable day in the costa ricin rainforest with this company. The mega tour is worth every penny and the price was WAY better than ANYONE ELSE'S. Don't let the beautiful and awesome hotel fool you with their excursions. Hotel is amazing too but they will try to talk you out of his threatening no insurance and dangerous. NOT TRUE. Best tour guide ask for RIGO SUAVE. You will learn about all the costa rican birds and flowers and trees as an added bonus on the way. During our zip line experience. RIGO took pics so we didn't have to buy the expensive ones and even videoed us. Looking forward to our massages and ATV TOURS TODAY.
