  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Beautiful, peaceful, well-maintained hotel with excellent service and staff!! My boyfriend and I stayed here for the duration of our time in Costa Rica and were continuously impressed by the attentive service we received. Breakfast every day was delicious and our servers knew us by name and vice versa. The front desk was extremely helpful with arranging transportation around Manual Antonio, restaurant recommendations and excursions. The bar staff by the pool were very friendly and helpful. We had an amazing trip and very restful vacation, much thanks to Shana. Special thank you to Javier in food services and Alexander at the front desk! -- Ann and Kyle

Truly Pura Vida!

Outstanding, beyond beautiful, this picturesque resort turned in to home while we were there. From breakfast every morning with Carla and the amazing staff at the restaurant who catered to our every request to Alejandro who helped with all our other requests from Couples massage (get the coffee scrub). This staff is amazing and we had plenty of guest from monkeys who watched the sunset with us from our balcony to sloth’s sitting in the tree next to us during breakfast. Could not have been happier n
