Clean, spacious rooms, easy to find, & on the beach (albeit low tide and rocky when I was there). Friendly staff, covid testing onsite, and one of the best meals I had since visiting Costa Rica - amazing!

We couldn't have asked for more during our stay: great services, beautiful hotel, very calm beach and a lot of nature among us. The food of the hotel was very good and they made sure everything was tailored to our taste!

What a lovely destination to anchor at for your time in the area! The resort grounds are beautiful and well-kept, both by the gardeners and housekeeping crew. There is a guarded gate at the resort entrance. Guest parking is convenient and close to the reception desk and path to guest rooms. We were welcomed very warmly by Luis and enjoyed a fruity house cocktail during our brief and easy check-in process. The guest room was very clean and had a tiered structure, with short steps down for each level starting with entry/vanity at the door, then bedroom/minibar, with living/patio at the lowest level. The small courtyard patio area off the living area was furnished and great for watching sunsets and enjoying the sounds of nature around the property. The shower room was very spacious, with several seats and ledges for storage. You'll wake up to spectacular sounds of wildlife all around - the trees surrounding the property are home to so many creatures. The open air restaurant (with a small indoor dining area and bar adjacent) was always clean. The included breakfast plan options were more than adequate each morning, plus options for added cost a la carte items if desired. The restaurant staff were very attentive and helpful each morning, even when a bee swarm invaded the pool. They worked quickly to warn all guests about the nearby caution area and never missed a beat when it came to breakfast service. We didn't have a chance to dine al fresco for dinner but it looked like a lovely spot for dinner as well, thanks to the thoughtful outdoor lighting the resort has installed. The bar keep was readily available if we needed to grab a glass of wine or beer from the bar in the afternoon/evening. The pool is very large with lounge chairs/side tables poolside and two outdoor showers. (Tip: There is a water spigot in the hedge near the parking area if you have exceptionally sandy/muddy shoes to rinse.) The beach path is also beautifully landscaped up to the edge of the public beach. The fire pit and hammock area is cleared of vegetation and paved with pebbles/sand for easy access from the pool or beach areas. The adjacent stretch of beach is dark grey volcanic sand/silt with volcanic rock - wear shoes. It's a lovely beach for morning walks, and sea birds of all types tend to gather at the rocky cove area just off the resort portion of the beach. Howler monkeys were taking up residence in a nearby fruit tree overlooking the pool during our stay - great entertainment while we floated the day away in the pool. It was a relaxing and beautiful stay - would certainly return again the next time in the area.

Exceptional reception! We were greeted with a welcome drink and a very friendly gentleman that I assume was a manager. The Hotel was not busy and appeared to be about half full. Rooms are dated, but clean. We only stayed for 2 nights on the tail end of our Costa Rica vacation. The included breakfast was more than adequate. The lunch and dinner meals we well prepared, though maybe a little pricey. It was worth it to us for the convenience of not having to go out in the evening. The beach was not a typical soft sand beach. It seemed more like a packed mix of mud and sand which made it easy to walk on, but maybe not great if you want to play in it. Would we go back? Probably! If for no other reason than the staff we so friendly and accommodating.
