I would say 95% of this review will be excellent! My only complaint of this hotel is the bathrooms. The bathrooms are nice & comfortable and large in size but here are my pet peeves:
- Shower head has no pressure
- Tub is too high, nothing to hold as you enter/exit the tub
- Towels are too small, rough and somewhat dingy.
Now for the good part! I LOVE this hotel! The proximity to the beach is amazing! The staff is 5 Star friendly (genuine) and the breakfasts were really delicious. So glad I could have my typical Costa Rican breakfast everyday if I chose.The fruits were so sweet and delicious every morning! The coffee, AMAZING!!
They offer a large pool with side kiddie shaded-pool, small casino, photo shop (on-site photographers photograph you all day on beach and at the pool and you can buy their photos before you leave!) pool table, nicely laid out lobby with lots of sitting areas, convenience store, gift shop, restaurants, pool side bar, gym, movie night, their own private transportation with "Servicios Rizo" which was very reliable and moderately priced and most importantly a BAR!!! Also, because the beach is farther away, you won't be bothered with all the souvenir vendors like other beaches. They do however, have the ones you DO WANT TO SEE, like the ice cones and coconut water vendors...those are a must on any beach. I met several people (Costa Rican and tourists) who admitted to yearly visits!
