We chose Costa Verde as our trip planner advised that they could accomodate our unique and somewhat challenging dietary needs and logistics. In that regard, were very impressed. The restaurant manager TRINIDAD was well-prepared for our arrival and was most gracious in allowing us kitchen access upon request, dedicating a special prep/cooking/cleaning area for us and providing us a dedicated chef MAURICIO, aided by GUARNE and FRANCISCO on different nights.
The staff scrupulously adhered to our instructions, and they were all very anxious to accomodate any request. As a result, we enjoyed fantastic meals at the Anaconda Restaurant, with nary a concern or sense of anxiety.
For that alone, we are grateful to have had such attentive and cheerful service that was also on target with execution.
So, I will admit that the restaurant special effort and attention might bias the rest of the review, but so be it!
We very much appreciated the hotel units being decentralized, being incorporated into the jungle setting, allowing viewing of monkeys, iguanas and other critters that would never congregate at a big monolithic hotel. We enjoyed a nice mix of jungle view with the Pacific in the background, with a huge balcony. The swimming pool was close by and the hilliness of the property insured we could walk off a few calories from each meal....(read- there is a manageable, but serious uphill grade to be aware of).
The room itself was fine, as we were basically there to sleep and shower and some late afternoon chilling. For the price, I thought the room was more than adequate. And since I wasn't expecting the Four Seasons, I feel the room size, view and in-room kitchen and huge balcony, were more than a fair value for the price.
The walk to the beach is about 15 minutes on a windy and narrow road that is safe, but you do need to be attentive! The hotel staff recommended an ATV Tour that we were exceedingly impressed with.
And we want to give credit to RANDALL from Coast to Coast Adventures for recommending Costa Verde to us.
Overall, if people adjust their expectations that this a lodge in the middle of a jungle area, then maybe there would be less mixed reviews about this property. We woud heartily recommend it!
