We went for dinner. The food was good and reasonably priced. The watermelon juice did not disappoint! The restaurant is in front of the hotel. They don't have many tables. We wished we had found it sooner.

Dear edandsarahmae02, Thank you for your comments and particularly about Elias in the Billfish. It’s good to hear from a fellow Texan. I’ll tell Elias hello. We’re in the middle of exterior renovations and expect that you will be even happier with the property when you get back. Until then… Pura Vida! Davis Henley, Managing Partner

I went to Byblos on Monday after hearing about ladies night. It's a chill bar with music, foosball tables, and pool. There is also a casino in the back room. It was a really fun night. The ladies night bartender, Brandon was really nice and helpful. He was really fun to talk to and gave us good tips about Manuel...

Loved it here! We stayed in a cute bungalow and the staff was great (victor was nice and also helped us look for the sloth every morning). We saw white faced monkeys and howler monkeys as well as a sloth all while eating and hanging out around the pool.

This hotel can use some help. Although the staff is very nice the rooms are not. It is very very dated with terrible lighting, dirty walls dingy smelly curtains and it just felt grimy and moldy. Granted you are in the humid jungle but the air conditioner needs a massive upgrade or at least clean filters. I coughed all night....

This hotel is situation right in the corridor for wildlife and therefore, you are surrounded by them. The Pacific Ocean is withing sight of most rooms. However, the property is in desperate need of some renovation and maintenance. The pool is lovely and we enjoyed our time there; but we were told the casino is closed and the sports bar...
