After driving around Costa Rica for 10 days from San Jose to Puerto Viejo, Arenal, tamarindo, Samara and back to San Jose it was like walking into an Oasis to spend our last 3 nights here before leaving CR. We were worn out and when we walked into the lobby, grabbed a warm cookie and we taken to our room it was great. We changed and went to the pool area to see the jacuzzi bubbling with steam coming off the water it was unbelievable. The water felt SO good and relaxing! Then a quick meal at the poolside restaurant and then the fabulous bed and in the morning I woke up feeling like a new man. We spent the day shopping in San Jose, then had a great meal again at the hotel. The next morning we were picked up and taken to River Pacuare by Rios Tropicales, to go white water rafting, what a blast!! Then we were returned to the hotel for our last night.
The room was great, quiet, conmfortable, large room and bathroom, desk, dresser, big tv, closet, minibar, SOFT BED!!!
Staff was great helpful friendly, perfect English.
This year we will end out trip there staying 4 nights and we are taking the executive level king.
There is a great souvenier shop in the small shopping plaza right in front of the hotel and they had the best gifts and prices we saw anywhere in costa rica. Also there is a small grocery store if you need anything. There is also a cigar shop right there, we did not go there but they have great cigars in the hotel, I feel they are very fresh because of a high turnover- they don't sit around drying out. My friends said they were good.
I would definately recommend this as a starting and/or ending spot very near, 5 minutes?, to sjo airprot, shuttle service too.
