    “Long weekend stay”

    Fantastic Costa Rica gateway for the price. The resort is not big but small and cozy with beautiful well maintained gardens.gardens. It does not have a huge selection of meals but what it lacks in quantity definitely makes up in quality. Everything we tasted was awesome. The tables were always clean with new table cloths and perfectly set up.

    “Worst service ever. Disgusting place. PUBIC HAIR!”

    Let’s start with the positives. They have a nice pool. That’s about it. When we arrived, we were told that our room wouldn’t be ready until 3pm. Which was fine with us, we enjoyed the day by the pool and their mediocre food. When we went back to check on our room they told us 4:30pm. Once we finally received our room, the moment we opened the door, we were greeted with a putred sewer smell. Their solution? Have the maintenance guy spray the room with fancy air freshener. Obviously it didn’t cover the smell and we were given another room that would be ready in an hour. We were then told 20...then oh wait it’s ready! When we arrived, the air conditioner was leaking and there was a puddle on the ground. We called reception and they sent over the same maintenance man to fiddle with it. Alas it stopped leaking but the room wasn’t being cooled down. After the frustrating day we decided to go to bed early. And once we pulled those covers, we were horrified. Someone’s hair clip in the bed, drool on the pillows, someone’s long hair as well as a pubic hair. We were given a “clean room” with used sheets. We went to reception again. Only to be met with the rude clerk Oscar. There he cut us off mid complaint and told us all they could do is give us a new room. When we declined and said we’d rather not stay the night nor the next night and that we would like a full refund, he very rudely said that we had to pay the night. RIDICULOUS. We have several calls into corporate and will be complaining on all platforms. Please avoid this DISGUSTING HOTEL. God knows what you’ll find if you take a black light to one of their rooms.

    “Great place to learn to surf but.....”

    This hotel is rather dated but is generally of an acceptable standard. The all in fare is substantial but lacking in variety. Similarly the a la carte restaurant is limited and the standard of the food is only fair. Last night we got to listen to raccoons fight in the ducting/roof above the restaurant. In terms of those who visit the two words that jump to mind are yardage and poundage. Very mixed from young families to older folks. The missing element is the 25-40 crowd other than young families ie families with 0-3 year olds. Many different nationalities. Staff are friendly enough and helpful.

    “Beach Wedding”

    We chose this hotel because we were looking for a place to have our beach wedding in Costa Rica and it offered the best price for the quality and standard of the hotel. We couldn't have been happier with the choice we made. The hotel staff were excellent and the wedding was better than we could have hoped for. The wedding planner (Argerie Cordero) did an excellent job and even gave us a few lovely and thoughtful surprises during our stay. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and would recommend this hotel for a holiday/wedding in Costa Rica.
