Always consistently committed to our guests, it became apparent from the beginning that this person wanted to explore other parts of the country. This review is about financial real-time reimbursement. Facts: The guest was offered a room at the resort and turned it down. There...More
We had the upper rather than the lower unit and it was wonderful. We had a huge balcony and ocean view. Saw macaws flying by daily. The room was gigantic with high ceilings, wrap around windows with shutters, and wood everywhere. I came to find...More

We flew into San Jose. There you can rent a car or take a bus. Both include crossing on ferry. We did the car and first went to uvita, which I loved. Jungle and swim able beaches. After tambor we went next door to montezuma glamping and yoga. Excellent. Just east of town. Coco, food gourmet. Expensive, but the tent cabins were a little less. Car not needed. On way to montezuma and up north: Careful, g map will direct you to routes that cannot be navigated. After hours of driving we had to turn around at a river.
Shuttle down beach on 4-wheel. From bus stop and cafe owned by same people. Or stay cheap in town cafe rooms with coco privs, fab pool. Waterfall, monkies. Horticultural achievement of 30 years+. Restaurant.
Then went north to all inclusive RIU resort. 2 side by side. Cheaper one is hideous loud party scene. Loudspeakers with game show events all day.
Previous years did carribean side. Best French food. Great small restaurants. Calm water. No real sunsets. Snorkel. Rec a car. Got robbed by thieves cutting screens to our room. While we slept.
