Nice room,great pools, food was good and the people were nice just about everything you could ask for. The beach was not real clean and there is a real ruff surf, everyone just hung out at the pools instead.

This was a fantastic location close to San Jose, but next to the Pacific coast. This is a great place to stay if you need food, place to sleep and excellent service. We rented a AWD SUV and headed out to all areas of the western part of Costa Rica. The food is plentiful and provides a variety of options....

I am honestly shocked by the bad reviews of this hotel. We have stayed here 4 times and love it each visit. This time we booked through expedia and got a BEAUTIFUL room for $145.00 total on the beach with a private porch.

We went here during the summer months so it was the wet season in Costa Rica. The sun didn't really shine on the beach, which was disappointing, but what can you do? The drinks weren't terrible, but not that strong either. The pool was nice...the rooms were below average for a Doubletree name hotel. The FOOD WAS GREAT! The resort...

We came here as part of a package deal. We read the reviews here, looked at the photos, seemed like it would be a great place.

We visit this all inclusive hotel once in a while, mainly because it's the closest to Costa Rica central valley. It takes around 80 minutes to get there, and once you get in you don't have to worry for meals and entertainment. Although it has limited choices, it is ok if you don't mind some gaps. Food is average, so...
