Rooms were great, private, set up like duplexes; large bath/shower, ours was near the pool which was perfect. Our air conditioner was lacking, but it was not uncomfortable and there was a mini fridge! Bonus Spent every second possible at pool. Bar and restaurant were open air and in view of and from pool. Grounds were nice; saw toucans and many other birds each walk to/from room. River is just across the road and hotel is close to a neat surfing community...drove down to watch the sunset...very interesting to see the river coming into the ocean...got fabulous photos...

Nice and clean villas surrounded by nature and wildlife. Wake up early morning walk in the garden area to find numerous birds. Breakfast was OK. Being in coffee country, I expected better coffee.
Nice desserts.

Room Tip: Try to get room on backside of the property.

We so enjoyed our stay here. It was very clean and restful. The cicadas were musical. The food was great. The grounds are beautiful. The staff was warm and welcoming. This was the last place we discovered in our two month in CR, and we wished we had allocated more time in this area because of the serenity.

Great place to stay on Pacific where it is gorgeous yet quiet and soothing. Very accommodating staff, great restaurant and very clean. It was a very good experience staying there. I would plan to stay there again and would recommend it to others. Only surprise was all dining is done in outside restaurant where it is always humid, unless you get room service. Also have nice bar and restaurant setup.

Wow! Where to begin....We were greeted by Jose at the front desk who's service was superb! My family and I were greeted with such happiness. We were given this delicious ice cold smoothie drink upon our arrival which was much appreciated after a long 4 hour drive from San Jose. Landscape was gorgeous and well maintained. My 5 & 9 year old occupied there time looking at the iguanas, birds,little lizards, pool and a cute little play ground for kids. While planning our stay Jose was so helpful and knowledgeable about different activities and places to visit for our family. Nice to see great customer service from everyone that worked there. Oh I didn't get the name of the lady who attended the restaurant and bar but her pina colada's were awesome! Plus always had a smile on her face and very attentive.
