I've been to Costa Rica 15 times now and this is my favorite beach that is easily accessible from San Jose. I'm not a fan of Jaco Beaches at all because of the black sand but this one is not as far as Jaco and was wonderful. I loved that the pools were so close to the beach. We've stayed several places where this was not the case, especially in Manual Antonio. The grounds are beautiful and everything is very easily accessible. The pools and the beach area both have seating and tables which makes it nice for travelers who can't bring their own chairs along! Breakfast was one of our highlights - lots of monkeys playing in the trees and we were able to take great pictures close up. We stayed in a superior room, which was nothing fancy but it was clean and comfortable. I will say this - don't expect to have much in the way of wi-fi in your room. It was up and down the whole time. In the wi-fi zones it was fine though.
The beach was very nice - we even found some shells and coral. Lots of huge iguanas, macaws flying overhead and other wildlife to see. I'll save myself the drive to Manual Antonio in the future and go here again. ***Be sure to stop at the bridge in Tarcoles and look at the huge crocs.
