This is a great case of size doesn't matter. This is a small hotel where you are treated like royalty. Seriously. By the end of our 6 day stay, most of the staff knew our names (and we're not particularly outgoing). They were always there with whatever you needed, always ready to bring you another drink, make sure you had the opportunity to make dinner reservations, help with tour arrangements. The grounds were breathtaking. There was always wildlife running around. It's right on a beautiful Pacific Ocean beach. Word of caution. The hotel is built into a cliff. Getting from the lobby to the beach can be a bit of a workout, but there's a fleet of golf carts always at the ready. Downsides? Not much in the way of night-life at the hotel besides the lobby bar. But you're a short cab or shuttle ride from Quepos and Manuel Antonio with a ton of restaurants and bars, so it's not really a big deal. We hope to go back again. We had the time of our lives.
