We were here as part of a gate 1 tour (we did the plan A upgrade in our opinion money well spent). The hotel had the most amazing views. It is Eco friendly so no air conditioning (although it wasn't needed) the power was on only when your room key was present in room, so while you have a fridge it only stays cool when you're in the room.
The zip lines, Tarzan swing and rappelling were awesome. The guides were great. It's on property so it's super convenient. Only $40. Pura Vida.
The restaurant is very nice, kind of hip bar upstairs where you overlook a pond surrounded by hydrangeas. Beautiful.
We were here at the end of September, only 10% occupancy so we had the place to ourselves.
