This venue has nice rooms, great location, and a great staff. The staff is extremely helpful and nice and went above and beyond to ensure our stay was pleasant. The owner is a sweet older lady named Ruthann. The rooms were nice and clean and we had prompt made service everyday. Our front yard was basically the ocean. I did a bunch of research and read so many horror stories, that i was a little afraid to come to costa rica, but read nothing but good reviews about this place. Every good thing that everyone said was 100% correct. My only complaint is that the beds could be a little more comfortable, but i can live. Their driver, Olman, took us out on a tour. He was ok for the most part, but we noticed that he was dishonest and told us some lies because he wanted a bigger tip. I would opt to go With a different person next time. When scheduling tours, massages, etc, it may he cheaper to go straight to the tour or event that is being scheduled. We noticed commission or referral bonuses were given to the concierge in some instances. Overall, we had a great time. Just remember, in resaurants, 10% gratuity is always included. We noticed some resaurants were trying to trick us and lumped everything under tax. Sorry, but Tax is only 13%, not 23%.
