My husband and I stayed here for a portion of our honeymoon - on our first day I wanted to check out but after a room upgrade I was completely satisfied. The hotel staff was very friendly, the food is to be expected from an all-inclusive... the staff went above expectations though - my husband is allergic to diary and they would prepare him his own meals if the diary-free options on the buffet weren't to his taste. The view is AMAZING. We loved the beach and loved the grounds.
A couple of tips for the area - a taxi is around $60 - to rent a car for the day is $63. Rent the car! Costa Rica isn't hard to get around (as long as you have a map!) and the beaches just south of this resort are not to be missed. Check out Playa Hermosa for a beautiful, quiet beach. Playa del Coca is good for souvenier shopping, but I found the beach to be sketchy (you can't leave your stuff alone while you're in the water). Tamarindo is also a bit far, but WORTH it.
