This is a great resort, but I have mixed feelings about it. This is one of the best all-inclusive resorts I have been to in terms of service, food and overall experience on property, but if you want to really experience Costa Rica, this probably is not the place to do it.
We spent a few days at another resort in the Arenal area of Costa Rica then came here for our last three nights to just relax. Which was great! The resort is off on it's own away from everything and is very quiet and relaxing. The food was very good, the Asian restaurant was my favorite. The beach is just OK, if you want a great beach, this is not your place. I did not have a chance to go golfing, but the on-property golf course looked very nice.
Make a trip into the nearby city of Tamarindo while you are here. There is a shuttle from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. every day for $10/person. It's about a 20-30 minute ride and it's a cool little town with a nice big beach, you can learn to surf there if you want.
To summarize, great resort for staying on property and relaxing! If you want to see the beauty of Costa Rica's jungles and mountains. This hotel is far away from a lot of those experiences and the beach is very average. It just depends on the experience you are looking for.
