I stayed at this hotel with my 2 teenage children in August 2013. We had a great experience! The room was large and we had a balcony with Ocean views. It was quiet, and lovely. The buffet breakfast was good, with a great variety of foods. The waiters are a bit slow. The beach has smooth sand, and the views are beautiful! The sunsets from the beach were so colorful with pink and blue colors!! We were surprised to find warm ocean water as it was their "winter". It only rained one day. The [big] resort pool on the non-beach side is amazing - huge - and a must see! There are big Iguanas in the trees ...one was on the pool bar and plopped into the pool right where we were standing watching it [!!!], it swam to the middle island like it probably does every day...Both cool and frightening for us, but a great memory. The little town is right outside the hotel gate. It felt safe, though I wouldn't want my 19 year old daughter to walk alone...too many Costa Rican men told me how beautiful she is...
The hotel is very safe with guards at the entrances'. You receive a strap bracelet when you check-in and you are to wear it for your entire stay. We saw the guard question someone who walked in from the beach with no bracelet, so they are on the lookout for non guests.
My husband had to work and missed a fabulous trip; I felt safe traveling there without him.
