The resort is beautiful and peaceful! The service was outstanding, extremely helpful and friendly. We had no issues with our stay, the tours we took or the transportation.

4/5 Good

The views are amazing and the staff is excellent!!! I would have liked larger and nicer pools but the beach is beautiful so it wasn’t that big of a deal. My only dislike was the location and transportation availabilities. The location is down a steep road and walking to and from the shops/restaurants isn’t feasible. They charge $11 to take you up the road. Also, they charged us $56 for a 18 minute drive to the Quepos airport. Research online shows taxi services would’ve been under $20 easily. Outside of that, our overall experience was amazing and if you don’t plan to leave the resort this is a gorgeous place

5/5 Excellent

Great views all over the property, had a small trail, paved walk ways, two pools. They upgraded us to the best room in the house and that made our stay very special. We will definitely check out their other properties.
