Let me start by saying that if you are looking for a place where you can enjoy a good swim in the sea, or a nice and romantic walk on the beach then this is not the hotel for you. Unfortunately, this hotel is located in one of the least attractive beaches in Puntarenas. Now, don´t you think the hotel...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 days ago

This is an all inclusive hotel that offers multi options of fresh food. Although most of the guest speak a different type of Spanish, my husband seemed to get by. What was most enjoyable were the trips into the environment. We saw monkeys who were summoned to eat off of our shoulders and travelled into the forest on river boats...

The hotel is located on a dark beach. The view is nice. Understood that it used to be operated under another name before and it shows. Although the rooms have been renovated they give a cramped impression because the ceiling is quite low. Otherwise the rooms are nice, not luxurious but fine and clean. The beds are firm and good...

This place was amazing. Let me preface it is a large place and lots of walking and the beach is of the black sand variety and lots of driftwood I found very few shells. But the Resort it self is great. The pools fantastic. Antonio and Karla two of the best bar tenders. Karla is a specialists at the margarita...

It's an average all-inclusive hotel in terms of amenities however the location is optimal when taking a cruise from Puerto Caldera or Puntaneras. My experience staying at the hotel was a bit more dramatic...let me explain. The front desk and customer service staff went out of their way to help track down my cell phone that I must have dropped...

This was a great resort for the rate! We had a nice room that overlooked the pool and ocean. There are multiple pools and two swim up bars. Drinks were good and the food was great! They did a nice job of mixing up the food served at the buffet, and the snack bar had a lot to offer and...

We spent two weeks here, all inclusive with just two a la carte restaurants, but it was very good value for money.

Beautiful grounds in a rough part of Costa Rica. 80% locals vacationing so not really American friendly if you are looking for decent service. Locals not very friendly to international travelers either.
