          Buenas tardes, he leido bastante sobre el hotel y lo que ofrece. Me encanta lo que he leido y las imagenes que he visto, sabiendo como costarricense que Guanacaste es un lugar precioso me encantaria conocer el hotel y poder disfrutar de la playa. Estoy buscando un hotel que me ofrezca un buen negocio por un precio conveniente para una sorpresa que quiero darle a mi prometido en ocasion de su cumpleaños. He leido mucho me encantaria saber en primer lugar si tienen espacio para la Setiembre, llegando el viernes 19 y saliendo el domingo 21. Quisiera de igual manera consultar cuanto seria el precio por estos dias? He leido que la playa queda a 5 minutos a pie, lo que me resulta bien y comodo, puesto que no contamos con un carro. Sin embargo como veo que no ofrecen el almuerzo y la cena, en cuanto oscilan los precios en su restaurant y en los cercanos? Y estan a lejos? Le agradeceria si me brindase toda la informacion posible a mayor brevedad a mi correo dayabrenesq1@ hotmail. com Muchas Gracias y bendiciones
