The staff was super friendly. The on-site restaurant had good food and we ate there several times out of convenience. The drinks were excellent, but expensive and not very strong. The pool area was beautiful, and we were able to see lots of wildlife like monkeys and iguanas on the property. The rooms were very large. Unlike some of the reviews that complained about the bathrooms having no doors, ours did have one, thank goodness. There were some odd things about the room like where the outlets were located. We were located in a bungalow that was in the middle and had to walk up a very steep incline and then down a steep incline to get to the bar/pool area. This was fine for us, but this is definitely not a hotel for anyone with serious mobility issues. Also, getting to the beach involved a steep set of stairs and walking along the road for a little ways. There was very little traffic, so not a huge deal, but something to be aware of. The beach was beautiful with very few people ever on it. We stayed out on the beach past the time the gate closed to explore tide pools at low tide and had to walk up and around to the front of the property. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance, but we mostly drove to Samara to eat. Great restaurants there. Overall, very enjoyable!

The property was a wonderful quiet getaway. The infinity pool overlooking the ocean was absolutely stunning. The beach was just a short walk and perfect to walk on the beach or swim in the ocean. The staff was incredible and we enjoyed getting to know them over our stay.

It was a luxury resort that was understaffed. The resort was just okay, and I would not recommend it.

Great Stay…poor sleep!
Beautiful property and the amazing location is just a short walk to a beautiful empty white sand beach. The service at the pool was friendly, helpful and attentive. The food and drinks at the pool were great and the family had a lot of fun just having a relaxing pool day. The rooms were nice, large and very clean but lacked comfort. The beds were way too broken in and we had a hard time sleeping on them. The a/c stopped working at times during the night and the room could get very hot and uncomfortable. Even though the food at the pool was great the breakfast was uninspired and not well prepared. Even for the low price of $20 it wasn’t worth it in comparison to other Costa Rican hotels we’ve had at other stops. I would suggest jumping in the car one town over to samara and they having breakfast there. In so many ways we loved this property and would stay again. But it’s hard to struggle to sleep at night and still enjoy the next day. Probably wouldn’t stay again…

This was a beautiful property. Then infinity pool was stunning! The rooms were clean and beautiful view. The food offered in the buffet breakfast was good. It would be nice if there were more choices or changes from day to day. Things that could be improved: Doors on the bathrooms. Access to water coolers as there isn’t anywhere to refill water bottles and no access to ice which could be used with the tap water (not cool enough to drink). It would be great if the hotel had a sign out system for: boogies boards, beach towels, beach chairs. It would be nice to have a reasonable menu to order from. Everything listed was $15 USD for lunch. We ate off resort each day and night. If they want people to use their beautiful cocktail bar area, they should offer happy hour each with reasonable happy hour price to draw people in. They have so many people visiting so now they just need people to spend $ on site. If they lowered prices with specials I am sure most people would stay on site and enjoy the gorgeous views. They also have beautiful drinks at the bar by the pool. If they had lower prices or daily specials, and had a waiter or two coming around taking orders, I am sure they would drum up a tonne of business. Having made these suggestions, we would still absolutely stay here again as the daily rate was reasonable and the pool area was exquisite. The 4 min walk to get to Carrillo beach was also very worth it. We did a five km walk every morning & waves great for boarding
