Likes: Nice pools, Lots of Food Options, Very Clean and Maintained. The people that sells stuff on the beach are very polite and are not pushy. Monkeys, racoons and igunanas visit the resort. Its a very beautiful area. Things to be aware of: 1) Always wear footwear around the pool, It's extremely slippery. We saw many people slip and fall 2) Don't go near the rocky areas in the ocean. We knew people that were stung by a sting ray, a sea urchan and jelly fish. Keep to the pool. 3) The food is good, its not fantastic. The buffet is actually pretty damn good, the Japanese restaurant has the best fusion options. 4) They don't tell you that you have to book the Teppanyaki at the front desk at least two days in advance. 5) The hotel should run a shuttle service to the local town to support the local business and help guests get out for a bit. But they don't. The location is isolated, so after 4 or 5 days your are looking for some outside stimulation. 6) 50% of the staff speak very little English. Just a heads up. 7) The tubs on the deck are a huge waste of time. They are not jetted, nor are they private. Your patio lights never turn off, so everyone can see you bathing. We never saw anyone use the tubs 8) Bathroom door in the room is glass and open at the top. Be prepared to hear and smell all your partners body functions.

High hopes that turned out to be very disappointing. We had a preferred room which was very limited and wasn’t really worth the money. I advanced booked the romantic dinner and prepaid, we show up at the date and time and they don’t have the reservation and accuse me of lying until I walk all the way back to our room for my phone with the email confirmation. They still didn’t correct it that evening. The schedule for events was off all day. We booked a tour at the hotel and I asked if all 4 of us could participate in, I had our three year old with me. We show up at the tour and he can’t do anything, so we had to toddler swap for 5 hours. Am star would not refund the money. We asked about dinner reservations twice and were told completely wrong things. Two restaurants did not allow kids under 16 inside and their were limited tables outside, leaving the lackluster buffet as the main option. The grounds were just in need of maintainence and good luck getting a lounge chair after 8am. Very isolated property, so something to consider if you like to be out and about. Gift shop has outrageous prices, which I don’t mind some mark up, but these prices were 50% more. We’re on to our second stop in Costa Rica and it is already much better!

This property has many pools and plenty of space no matter how many people it never feels crowded. We liked that it has plenty of restaurants to choose from. The only thing we did not like was the first impresion from check-in counter. The guy that did our check in, was not very welcoming or inviting. Im not expecting a red carpet or anything, but atleast a welcome or a smile. I guess maybe because we are not members of the resort and just renters. Who knows, but usually when going to a resort in other places, they ask us what are we celebrating or what is the reason for a visit then they recommend places to go and visit. This was our first time in Costa Rica so we were new to things we could do. Some help would of been nice. We found that the person carrying our luggage and housekeepjng was nicer than the consierge and chick in people. The house keeping was so honest and humble costarican people.

Unique-monkeys! On your balcony. staff should probably notify guests with a little more details other than “don’t feed the animals”.

Real review from chi-town girl
9/2/19 - 9/8/19 was an intention of celebrating an anniversary with family and friends. The drinks were fair (in taste), the rooms were beautiful, clean, and the most amazing view. The beach was ok, lots of people trying to get you to buy something; souvenirs beach massages etc... but they weren’t too pushy. Drinks and fun at pool was amazing! Food was mostly good. Some restaurants was hit or miss. Dinners were decent. Every salmon dish was delicious. They don’t have non-pork meats for breakfast but the breads n fruit were plentiful. Room service was best during non peak times. Escort entertainment was cool. Only thing bad I can say is that the person cleaning our room didn’t leave new towels each time, the water in our building was shut off for a few hours (at a convenient time overnight), and the raccoons were horrific. They were walking around like domestic puppies. Signs were all over to not feed the animals but that didn’t stop them from hanging out late night to dig in the garbage can. They didn’t really bother me till they came in the restaurant with a lot of hope. They were shewed away easily by staff. It just surprised me. Definitely bring your own “off” for the mosquitoes if you’re doing an excursion. Also the spa was PERFECT. The process of getting it was through a “time share sit down” which took FAR too long. Others that brought vacay plans like I fell in to didn’t take as long. 😔. Not sure about the issue there. I’d consider going again if cheaper. club sucked
