We stayed here as visiting family in Puntarenas and this is probably the best property around. Rooms are okay, clean and adequate. Although all inclusive we didn't eat here too often. Drinks are light so you end up drinking more. The main pool is pretty cool so for a family with kids this might be an okay place. The weather...

Beautiful location and very economical as an all-inclusive. Right on the beach with a nice pier and very scenic. I loved the breakfasts and pizza at the snack bar, but was not too crazy about the dinners. As far as booze, I didn't recognize any of the alcohol brands; they were definitely not top shelf. I enjoyed the swim up...
