Our family stayed seven nights at the hotel in June. Our family all agreed it was the BEST vacation ever! The hotels peaceful jungle setting was amazing. Seeing monkeys (up close), raccoons, iguana and funky squirrels was so much fun. The staff was all super friendly and went out of their way to make you feel at home. My kids also loved the two frisky kittens, that spent most of their time napping in the lobby.
We spent almost all our time outside in the pool or ocean. Everything was so well maintained. The food in the restaurant was also very good and was very convenient when you did not feel like walking into town.
The rooms were open and airy. White and linens walls and a big four post bed. Plus great framed black and white vintage 1920’s photos of Costa Rica on the walls. We had two rooms that connected and worked perfectly for our family.
The kids 8 and 15 loved swimming, boogie boarding surfing and zip lining at Monkey Jungle. They were so happy and busy at the hotel that we hardly even went into town. They did sometimes watch a movie in the lobby on our ipad. We all had a hard time staying up past 9pm.
A few tips…
Be sure to get the bug spray in the silver can at the gift shop. The bugs in June were bad a night and OFF did not work for us.
Also spring for the AC because it was very humid.
Do not walk into town on the road bc there are no sidewalks and bad roads. Take the beach route, but remember to take your cell phone (set it for the highest brightness) or flashlight bc it gets dark at 7pm.
Bring zip lock bags for ANY food in the room. If not the ants will go crazy.
Pack light. We lived in our bathing suits.
Don't pay attention to the weather. They predicted rain everyday and we had one sprinkle in 8 days.
