Had to pay for Perrier
Posted Sep 29, 2016
2nd visit to this resort., First time in Feb 2016 we had much larger regular room in regular building closer to buffet, gym restaurants and beach. This time we tried the "Royal Towers for Adults". Some of the staff recognized us from our previous visit.
We got perks like seperate check in, concierge service that arranged our dining reservations and an adult only swimming pool. I can't say enough about the grounds, the staff, and the food. The only hiccup we experienced was when I ordered Perrier at dinner, and was told there was a charge for it. Now this is an all inclusive with top shelf liquor included, but Perrier isn't? We are non alcohol drinkers, so we have paid for unlimited top shelf booze, but get charged for carbonated water? C'mon now!
The beach is the main attraction here at the hotel. and Playa Conchal is simply gorgeous. We were here during the green (low) season and staff had to bring lounges out to the beach for us. It showered one full day and we had a TStorm on another evening. Back in February it looked like we were in a desert, everything was brown. This time we saw green everywhere. We heard that the previous week was rainy every day.
We've been to Guanacaste 4 previous times, staying at the Occidental, Riu, Basque del Mar and the Westin. We liked our 1st stay here so much, we decided to come back for a 2nd visit. We'll probably return for a 3rd time too.
