The place is beautiful, its locations makes it a 5 star place to be in Costa Rica. Breathtaking views at the rooftop and the town of Las Catalinas is just amazing and unique.

This is a beautiful place to stay with plenty of opportunity for self powered adventure on the ocean or in the jungle. The rooms are nice and clean yet seem to be lacking finishing touches in decor. There continues to be lots of construction which isn't particularly conducive to a relaxing atmosphere but it's not a deal breaker. I will be returning!

This property is new and is well cared for. The road getting to the hotel is full of potholes so be prepared. The only real issue we had was tbe room air conditioning was terrible considering this is a new build. When you set a temperature it does nothing. Upon leaving I told the front desk and he said they do that so kids don't play with it and change the temperature. So if that's the case maybe since we were 2 adults renting the room you should have given us THE SECRET CODE.
