Very impressed by the restaurant in every aspect! The dining room looked upscale but was in fact a very causal and welcoming atmosphere. Our server was absolutely great!! He was very helpful and had a great personality that made our evening quite fun. This was especially great considering the fact that we don't speak Spanish! Last but not least my...

This hotel was on a great street with an easy walk to the beach. Tour companies were next door and across the street making it easy to book dolphin watching tours or snorkeling expeditions. The breakfast was made to order, which was really nice after a week of buffets. The rooms were fine. They had AC but no blankets on...

Fine hotel, nice pool for cooling down when have been swimming in the warm ocean. Just in the middle of the main street close to the beach. Nice restaurant in front where you get your breakfast, best pizza I ever tasted! (For dinner)

This is a simple family place: small room with A/C, unaffiliated restaurant (separate tab) on ground floor that does however also serve the free breakfast. Free but slow wifi. 100 m to a supermarket (towards beach, right at first corner) and to beach. Don't expect anything fancy, but the staff was friendly and some speak English if you need it,...

Our first nights in CR were perfect as we settled into the quaint little beach town. The pool was nice, breakfast was wonderful and the staff were very kind. AC kept us comfy and bar service kept us smiling! You will get used to only having CNN (+Fox) unless you habla espanol. Many activities available and the drive from Liberia...

To our surprise the public bus dropped us off right in front of the hotel. We were in Room 18 and the clean pool and gardens were steps away from our sliding glass door. So convenient for our daily dips in the pool. Loved the king size bed --just like home. The air conditioning was a perfect temperature and kept...

We stayed here for 2 nights on July 31 in room 11. We sat down at a table in the Giada restaurant on the second evening. We put our belongings on the table and checked out the menu. We decided to leave and go somewhere else- due to my daughter being a picky eater. Accidentally, we left our room key...

Your comments in Trip Advisor is a very strong and incorrect comment. The room key and the purse was return to the hotel which means you in fact you did not lose them here in the hotel (your purse is at the front desk if you wish to stop by the front desk to pick it up), when a client...

Stayed for 3 nights. The rooms are a little small, and there is not much closet space. Unfortunately, we had a lot of luggage because we had been at a wedding at another Costa Rica resort, so space was at a premium. Rooms were clean, and the WiFi was strong. The GM was very nice and a funny guy. The...
