The early sunrise awakened the beauty of the landscape, as a foreground, to bring to light the glistening waters of the Pacific Ocean.

We stayed in a two-bedroom unit in the second row of units up from the beach. We arranged it through RCI (time-share exchange).

From beginning to end, the visit was a very comfortable one. The unit had a small kitchen/living room connecting to a bathroom and then to the lower bedroom (two double beds) on the ground floor. An internal stair went up to the master bedroom which had a king-sized bed, good closet space, and a large bathroom (with whirlpool tub--although perhaps the whirpool itself wasn't working). It also had a small balcony with several chairs, a dorm-sized refrigerator, etc.

Everything was spotlessly clean, the much-needed air-conditioning worked effectively, and the master bed was comfortable. It didn't feel brand new, but that isn't something that bothers me (it isn't brand new so it makes sense).

Given the steep hill on the property, people with mobility issues short of a wheelchair will need to take the regularly-scheduled shuttles (running every few minutes during the day and running I believe until 10 p.m.). The restaurant and pool and lobby are all at the top of the property and the units are in terraced rows going downhill.

The views from the top are breathtaking; few breakfast spots have such a great view. The gym had modern equipment that mostly worked (one treadmill seemed to be out of commission, but there were two others), the pools were clean, and the restaurant had ample options (including for our party, three of whom were vegetarian).

In general, the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. There were language barriers at time (our Spanish isnt' great), but they always made sure to find someone who could understand to be sure there wasn't any confusion.

The onsite tour agency, Mardigi Tours, is also wonderful.

All in all, this was a great week-long trip to Guanacaste and we'd stay at the property again!

Room tip: 2 BR units near the top of the hill have better views, towards the bottom of the hill easier access to the beach (walking versus shuttle)

Great staff, comfortable condos, clean, nicely decorated & adequate amenities, but don’t you dare try to use the very well equipped gym in anything other than tennis shoes as the Tico Gym Nazi will not let you in the door!

We stayed in a villa at this oldest beach resort in Playa Hermosa. Very few beach resorts are being built in Costa Rica. We were lucky to stumble upon this gem. Good service, nice food, fantastic location and views.

This was my first time in Costa Rica and was excited to be traveling with a college friend of 34 years.

Even though the property is a little dated, the value, the views, access to the ocean and the very kind staff made this a trip I’ll never forget.

My friend and I stayed in a one bedroom condo (two double beds) that could technically sleep approximately about 6 people. There were two couches in the living room that pulled out to single beds. The bathroom was nice and all of the amenities you would need were included. There was also a full sized kitchen, which included cooking utensils, a rice maker, coffee pot, pots and pans, etc. It was nice because a few nights we opted to shop at the local market and cook in. Side note: I also didn’t think grocery items were over-priced at all. We rented a car so we even shopped at the Walmart in Liberia (where we flew in) and it was only about 30 minutes away.

The resort is basically on the side of a mountain, which allowed for excellent views of the Pacific Ocean. There’s also a shuttle that will drive you throughout the resort because some of the roads and hills were pretty steep. The shuttle comes about every 10-15 minutes and it will drop you off at many places within the resort.

The restaurant where we had our daily breakfast was at the top of the mountain and it afforded us unforgettable views (which included lots of wildlife, including wild monkeys).

I could go on and on about this place because it felt like a vacation home for the week we were there. The staff got to know us by name as we did them. It was very clean. I would definitely stay here again.
