I usually don't review stuff I have to pay for, but these guys deserve a huge 5-star rating. This resort, although it is listed as a golf resort, does not have any golfing in sight. What it does have is a huge beach with sand that is perfect to walk on. The staff is great too. Rolando and the tour guide/sales staff were wonderful at helping me and my wife pick out some local tours. One particularly sea turtle tour came up with nothing, so the tour guide (Mike) offered to let us come on the next one for free as long as others were going. We did and came away with a great experience. The estuary tours were amazing, the snorkeling was spectacular...a little cloudy at times but it was like diving into an aquarium...there were colorful fish everywhere. The food was terrific too, and the location was within walking distance of at least another dozen restaurants. The breakfast buffet was on the high end of standard, with an abundance of fresh fruit every morning. Even though we went in the "green"season (meaning rainy), this was no reason to be deterred from visiting this time of year (end of September).
One thing I would caution: the vendors in town like to play games with the exchange rate. Bring American money AND colones (CR currency). I made the mistake of converting all my $ into colones and they converted it back into dollars at .5, when it should have been .492. But that was completely separate from the resort. Diria was amazing and I hope to return there again!
