Stayed here for the first night of our trip to Costa Rica and the last night, due to a late arrival and very early departure. For $15, they send a driver for you at the airport and he holds a sign with your name on it. Perfect. The ride to the hotel is not more than five minutes.
I have to say, for our needs, this property fit the bill.
We have to mention the Guest Relations Managers Paola and Allan. They were the ones who made the stay excellent. We were upgraded to a pool view room. Large room, flat screen tv, good size bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Juliette balcony.
Ask for a room on the higher floors for a great view. (We were on 5).
The halls are made of terra cotta tiles so you hear the rattling wheels of the carts and luggage. Nothing to absorb the noise.
We had the buffet breakfast included in our rate. Great omelette station. They will also make you a fruit smoothie with any fruit you want. The staff is really helpful and friendly. We didn't eat anything from the warming trays so cannot comment on that. We also didn't eat anything from the bread and muffin area. The fresh fruit selection was also good.
The pool was pretty with the mountain range in the background. The coffee plantation is beautiful and we got a private tour just by asking a woman we saw where we could see the plants. She stopped what she was doing to walk with us, explaining everything about the process of the plants, beans, etc. So nice.
You can pay your exit tax the night before you leave, at the hotel, so you can save time at the airport on departure day. Just remember to fill out the back of the form (we weren't told to do that so we did it at the airport).
The gift shop is great. Coffee, candy and wood products all made in Costa Rica made the best gifts to bring home. You can charge everything to your room. Next to the gift shop is a nice bakery.
We ate dinner off the grounds at Kiantis Restaurant (three minutes from the hotel in San Antonio de Belen). Great Costa Rican restaurant ($5 taxi ride). The food and service were great. Very casual.
