“Breathtaking Natural Beauty of Costa Rica ~ Pura Vida Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2011

My husband, daughter and I were thrilled to spend time at Palo Seco's newest resort ~ Clandestino. The venue is breath taking ~ with its natural design & architecture, proximity to miles of white sand beaches and our favourite: world-class waves in every direction, including right outside our front door. The accommodations are five star and the grounds are reminiscent of what we love about Costa Rica ~ its natural beauty. The service we received was again, five star all the way through, from our booking arrangements, airport pickup, area tours, to the end of our stay as we returned to the airport.

Clandestino's restaurant offers a wonderful menu and a great bar to enjoy new company and the spectacular sights of this wonder, particularly the pool and grounds. We definitely recommend Clandestino to all of our friends and family, and will look forward to returning again over the Christmas holidays.

5 ***** plus!

Thank you to all for an unforgettable experience
