"Some good Some bad"
This was our first visit to Costa Rica - I had done a lot of research online for the best place to stay. Took a chance on this place. There are some very good things down to down right poor things about this resort. Front desk - not really friendly, language barrier or pretended to have a barrier bell hop- took bags to our room was super nice, always smiling and said hi when we saw him during our stay. Pool - amazing, large, clean, plenty of pool chairs and covered umbrella things. Spa - did not use this service Buffet - was good, there was a large variety, however it was pretty much the same every single day and after 10 days it got to be pretty boring. Most of the food is hot, and when it's super hot outside it would be nice to have a cold sandwich which is not an option. wait staff was friendly and attentive to needs. Desserts were really yummy! a-la-cart restaurant was excellent but we were only allowed to make 3 reservations even though we had paid the premium all inclusive fees. Food was good however the dessert portions were tiny. Wait staff was friendly. Room - here is where some of the bad comes in. We had a duplex suite. The couch you could not sit on, It was plastic fake leather that was cracking, the cushions sank into a gap a the front of the couch so you slid right off the couch. The jetted hot tub jets were covered in mold - no way in heck I was using that. The shower was broken so we had to go downstairs and use the shower down there, thankfully those units have 2 but was a pain. The bed was clean and somewhat comfortable, was a bit firm for our liking but that's a preference thing. The over all cleanliness was ok, not really good about cleaning behind doors and in the crooks and crannies. Sinks had a sewer smell to them and mold up under the edges. The A/C smelled of Mold and actually made me sick for the entire stay. The sliding door lock didn't work, we requested someone come look at it to fix it but no one ever came. We eventually got it to lock and then never opened it again. Premium all inclusive upgrade $30 per person per day so we paid $60 per day for this service and got NOTHING. We had pool towels in our room on day one only, never after that. Our mini bar was never full, we had to talk to the manager several times to get it filled and even then it was not full. 2 bottles of water per day was not acceptable, it was hot and paying that much money they could stock it full with water at least. The WIFI did not work in the rooms and only periodically worked at the pool. I own my own business and required WIFI however could not connect, ended up paying for international coverage on my cell phone so I could hot spot wifi to my computer. We were limited to only 3 dinners at the a-la-cart restaurant, the website doesn't say there is a limit, just that it requires a minimum of a 3 day stay, we were there 10 days. We never had a daily newspaper as advertised (no big deal to me but still) would discourage people from wasting their money on this service as you will not get anything for the $60. Beach was beautiful, not a lot of chairs to sit out on the beach, they are stuffed up under the trees. Lava flow rocks were cool. There is an estuary next to the resort which was neat but we were told not to up into there because of crocodiles. If you crossed the stream at low tide you better make it back before tide starts coming back in or it's not crossable. Walking the beach the other way was not as sandy it had more lava rock. We were not comfortable swimming there because you couldn't tell where lava rock would be and the surf was pretty strong. All in all it was OK - I doubt we will come back and stay there but we might. We will see.
"Loved this resort"
Firstly, all the negative comments I read before arriving at this resort, certainly made me uncomfortable. It did not take long to realize my worries were unfounded. I was travelling with a Seniors group from Canada. The rooms were large, each had a balcony, could hear the ocean, howler monkeys from time to time, birds, AC worked great, large fan in room as well. The bathroom needed some TLC but one doesn't live in the bathroom. We could drink the water, but bottled water was left daily in the room. All common areas were continually being cleaned, lounge nice, clean bar on first level and live music every evening. Pool was beautiful, never a shortage of chairs, pool bar was large, served fast food at lunch. Ocean just a few feet away. You could not swim at the beach. Lots a wonderful waves but the beach area was volcanic rock. Staff always pleasant. All meals were buffet. Huge dining room as well as tables at the pool. Always plenty of fresh fruit. Food was good but not great. I would definitely come back. Weather perfect. 30C +, nice breeze, no rain.
"All about the location"
It has a really nice beach right outside and a good surf break. Been a bit outside of town, it's not as crowded which was good for me as I came for surf. Hotel itself was average, a bit pricey for what it is. Luckily the staff were super friendly and give it a really good vibe. It has a huge potential tho so hopefully they would make some work done.
Just returned from a one week vacation to celebrate a friends birthday! We were a little leary after reading some of the reviews and even within the first couple of hours of arriving. However....after overcoming some of the small things, we all quickly grew to love the place. It was no doubt a little dated. However, the staff, the location and the food made up for it. First of all, a special thanks to Alba in reservations. She was an absolute joy to deal with! Hats off to Adina, always a smile on her face and wanting to get us whatever we needed. And Carlos....another true asset to this resort. Would make us his signature drinks, all made with his love he said!!!!! He even ran to the restaurant to get bananas to make us a special drink! There was never a problem with getting chairs around the pool. We had two dinners in the a la carte ( the surf and turf was amazing). No complaints at all about the buffet food.... in fact, it was very good! And the six of us are somewhat picky! And we loved that there is no smoking in the resort! The rooms were a little dated and could use some work in the bathroom areas, but were very quiet, clean and comfortable. We asked to be in the 9000 building and would highly recommend it.....nice and close yet very quiet. Loved seeing the monkeys and iguanas in their natural setting. Would recommend this resort and likely will return. Thank you for a great vacation!!!!!
