The area is quiet, wide expansive dark beaches and the most people we saw on the beach at any one time may have been 10 which was spread out over a half mile or so. we had the smaller ocean front room which gives you private access to the beach, private patio, all room have a private gate to their room and the beach was only about 25 yards away. After traveling from Arenal to Monteverde to here we were able to truly unwind from all the traveling. The dinners were excellent and the Parga Entero was the best I've had... and I've had some wonderful whole fish asian, mexican and latin style. My husband had the seared ahi and the lomitos gaucho steak which he thoroughly enjoyed. The staff is respectful, nice and fun ... as well as know how to keep their distance. The only thing negative I could say is the jacuzzi needs to be hot, they haven't figured that part out, or we couldn't figure out where to turn on the heat. Other than that the pools were sparkling, the grounds were immaculate, but not presumptuous. We could really unwind and relax. Loved the shower with the glass sliders that opened to a private garden ... wonderful!! It's really designed for privacy. We would return.
