We stayed here whilst on a tour of Costa Rica and absolutely loved it for the luxury and chill out factor. We were fortunate to have one of the junior suites (a bit of a trek up the hill, but worth it), beautifully equipped and with the comfiest bed in the world! The main hotel itself is tastefully furnished and has impeccable style. The food was generally very good - especially the breakfasts (I can recommend the onion soup at dinner which was scrummy). The staff are lovely, although the service at breakfast can be a bit hit and miss when you are trying to grab a coffee. The Spa was nice, but a bit pricey. There is a great gift shop upstairs if you want some unusual presents. There are three pools, one an adult pool if you prefer. There is a swim up bar which makes rather nice fruit smoothies. I loved the natural wildlife - the iguanas (big ones!) tend to join you for lunch and the birds are wicked at pinching sachets of sugar. One iguana even got in the lift with a lady, went up to the 4th floor with her and tried following her to her room! Go see the frogs playing in the swimming pool at night - don't worry, they have gone by the next day. Sometimes the monkeys come to visit, although I never saw them. It really is a different experience and I loved it. I can happily recommend this delightful hotel. Go enjoy!
