    Flight crew stay

    Overall I was pleased with our stay, the food was good but with covid the buffet was slow. No fault of the hotel, just the way it is due to gov’t regulations. WiFi was spotty and limited to 2 devices. I would stay here again.

  • 6,0.Good

    The landscaping is beautiful! The rooms are simplistic and set into small groupings. There is beach access. We did hear a lot of howler monkeys and see many lizards and birds. I’d love to see metal or plastic seating in the snack area so you can eat while in swim wear without soaking the padded chairs. The lounge pool bar was closed most days because they didn’t have enough people staying at the resort, it’s a very long walk from there or the beach to get a drink. The snack bar area also closes for drinks at 6pm, so the only places left to get anything are up 75 stairs. The pathways are shared by golf carts and people so you have to hop off of the path to let the motorized vehicles by, this became annoying quick. The decor and music I feel are for older people, lots of instrumental music. The food was ok, loved the mashed cassava! Many days during our stay they did not open the lunch buffet because there were not enough guests, leaving only the snack bar and it’s minimal selections. There is not a variety of local fruits to try. A place to get coffee would be a great addition, during our stay the only place open before 10/11 was the dine in breakfast buffet. If we go back to Costa Rica we will look into different resorts to stay at.

    The property is spread out and you can walk if you care too but they do provide a shuttle. This is my 2nd visit and I enjoyed both times. This stay I got caught up in the COVID-19 bit everyone was clam and did as they needed too. Staff was very co-operative and very helpful and friendly!

    It was anarchy in action. clearly no management. Seems as if all staff were doing their best (or their angriest, or their most officious) but everyone was confused and no one had the power to make any changes.

    Overall I really enjoyed my stay. I did find the a la cart restaurant reservation policy was a bit disappointing. The restaurant would be more than half empty yet they could not accomodate walk ins?
