This is the smallest all inclusive hotel we have ever stayed. Besides the good reputation of Occidental Grand properties, we liked the idea that it was Adults Only so there would be no screaming kids. The guests were mostly couples, many newlyweds or couples there for a special anniversary. The resort is spread over a hillside going down to the beach. It is about a half mile from the lobby to the beach but there are shuttles readily available. The Italian Restaurant was superb. The Oriental and Mexican (I'd prefer a Costa Rican) Restaurants were also excellent. Even the Buffet was very good. And of course, there was a snack bar and bar near the pool.
The resort is very quiet. If you want to get drunk and obnoxious, go to the Occidental Allegro. 2 couples we met switched hotels from there.
The beach is relatively small and almost non existent at high tide. There is a nice Spa but you can also get a massage on the beach.
There is a lot to do in Costa Rica. We went scuba diving with Rocket Frog and took 2 tours with Swiss Tours.
When we come back to Guanacaste, we will likely stay here again because it is Adults Only.More
