Nice new resort on the cliffs of ocean. The resort has 2 beaches, we only made it to one. The staff is so friendly! The rooms are really nice. We rented a suite and next time I would probably just get a regular room. The living room part of the suite has no a/c, and it was hot ! You couldn't really use the room. The deck was nice with a hot tub and nice views. It looked like all the rooms had nice views, so that's another reason I would just get a regular room. Two slight drawbacks, the resort is hard to get around (hills) and also hard to enter/leave. Overall it is beautiful, the rooms are nice and there were monkeys,snakes, sloths and birds galore. We had a great experience with our guide, Leo Rodriguez [--]. Leo was awesome!!! He drove us all around the country (which was great, less driving stress!), gave us suggestions on what to do and took us to the best places. He is super knowledgable about EVERYTHING!! animals, birds, plants, insects, the economy, etc.. He is extremely professional, nice new clean van, speaks english, french and spanish and he is fun! We are definitely calling Leo again next time we come to Costa Rica. I will recommend him to all my familiy and friends. We also went to Arenal. Loved that hotel, Nayara Arenal (seperate review). Email me if you have any questions.
