My husband and I concluded our trip to Costa Rica with a 5 night stay. After a cool and rainy period in the northern area rain and cloudforest, we looked forward to the warmth and sun at the beach. We stayed in an Ocean Breeze Suite on the top floor of Building 1 down near the private beach. This was a very convenient location. We loved listening to the ocean surf at night. The staff is top notch and remembers everyone's names and activities and alway asked how our day and latest adventure went. The beds were extremely comfortable. The food was just OK. Breakfast was made to order, however, we would have preferred some kind of buffet style. The complimentary snacks in the room min-bar were a nice touch, but getting water or any kind of beverages (other than coffee which we do not drink) was challenging. We definitely would have purchased beer or soft drinks from the mini-bar if they were available. We saw monkeys outside out room as well as slothes in the trees. We saw a couple of amazing sunsets and had a wonderful experience on a morning beach walk witnessing a mother turtle who had just layed her eggs making her way back to the sea. The private beach and being close to the National Park Manuel Antionio make this hotel a very good choice.
