Incredible rooms, stunning location, the hotel design is beautiful and allows you to mesh with nature while also being comfortable. Monkeys at the pool, parrots flying overhead, jungle beaches, and the nicest staff. I will definitely be going back.

I would highly recommend this location for business or a getaway. Amazing service, beautiful location. It's close to the new airport. We did the discovery tour nature walk. Had a fabulous time. Exceeded our expectations.

Everything at the resort was beautiful and well designed. The staff were all incredibly friendly and grateful. Chai Pescao had some of the best food and cocktails I’ve ever had. Rio Bongho’s breakfast buffet was simply delicious (I probably ate 5 pounds of platanos Maduros in 5 days). Overall excellent place to relax and enjoy some tranquility.

Our first trip to Costa Rica was spectacular! The hotel was wonderful, we had a beautiful room. We had a shower, big enough for two with a view of the ocean. An outside balcony was a great place for an afternoon siesta. The evenings were pleasant after the heat of the day. The restaurants were great, especially Ostra. You must eat dinner there.staff is gracious and helpful. Loved it!

We stayed at the Andaz for 6 days in January. The room was beautiful, with views of the water and jungle. Monkeys everywhere!! The service was great, always there to please. The breakfast restaurant Rio Bhongo was lovely with a great a la carte menu plus a buffet. The Ostra, the fancy restaurant of the group was ok, a beautiful setting but our group of 6 were disappointed, the food definitely could have been better.
We liked the Chao Pescao restaurant, great music which is live a few nights a week and great tapas.
We also ate at the beach house restaurant a few days for lunch and we enjoyed it.
The beach located directly below the pool at the Andaz is not nice, and I was surprised on how many steps it took to get there (some areas without handrails and quite steep). But the good news is that they have a boat that takes you to a lovely beach called the beach house around a 5 minute boat ride. But You still have to walk all those steps down an back!! Exhausting. Also so many steps from our room in building 2 to the pools and restaurants. There are golf carts which take you around which we did quite often (except they do not go to the beach) and there is a shuttle that takes you to the beach house if you prefer not going on the boat but it takes much longer than the boat.
We enjoyed our visit and love Costa Rica but I am not sure I would return due to the serious amount of stairs everywhere.
