  • 8,0.Very good

    The property is right on the beach and my husband is a surfer it was amazing. The property definitely needs some upgrading. The pool tables had broken sticks and you had to pay money. The food was just OK. Also there are only two other restaurants and you are not permitted to attend those more than two times while you are there for 7 days. They were not very good anyway. The staff inside those restaurants were rude and limited what you could eat. The buffet food was just a little boring however several of the staff there were very nice. We would return to this property only because of where it is located it is an absolute perfect spot for a surfer!!!!

    For the amount charged property should be better maintained. rooms were cleaned every day, but mold in certain areas in the bathroom never disappered. Intertainment-below avarage. Only food was good and friendly personnel.

  • 2,0.Poor

    This resort was terrible and it is definitely not a five-star resort as it claims on the ads. We had to go through five different rooms in order to finally get a clean room which was a lower grade room than what we paid for. The free parking on the premises was very limited and had to park outside on the street. The food was not good and very low quality. Overall experience was very bad!

  • 10,0.Exceptional

    Oceanfront, the pool and snack/bar are next to the ocean, the hotel lobby offers a large open-air terrace, live music in the afternoons and nights, show on open-air on amphiteatre, assisted buffet, good options for all, salad bar, hot meal bar, desserts a bit limited at times. The beach is a bit rocky on one side so be careful, good for surfers, rip currents well signalized with a red flag on high tide, hotel rooms are large, coffee maker only (no-tea), small flat screen tv with cable channels, acceptable bed (not premium but you can sleep), good pillows. Large bathroom, playground (small) for kids), large pool divided in 3 depths, nice gardens, did come across a small black/yellow snake, a couple lizards. Gym is by appointment after 10am and closes by 7pm. lobby bar closes midnight. For those driving, that is the issue if you are coming from SJO airport (4 hours at least), on winding curvy 1 lane per direction roads, a nightmare. Better land in LIR airport (1 hour away max)
