Great place to go

I had a great experience at this hotel. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. The area is kept very clean every day. Food is good, but nothing amazing. Average buffet food...plenty of fruit was provided which was nice. The beach was amazing, and never busy, only a handful of people on it at all times which was great for exploring what the nature had to offer (not sure if this was due to the time of year I went). This is definitely a resort for families, or people who want to spend their time exploring the country in a more low-key way. There is entertainment in the evenings, usually a performer singing or playing an instrument, and plenty of good alcohol, but it is not a loud party resort. There was a good mix of older people, families, and a few young couples. It is a somewhat small resort, and has a bit of a hotel feel rather than an all inclusive. No lines for meals, or too many crowds. I would go back to this resort in a heartbeat!

Great resort for those that want an intimate, relaxing vacation

This is a very small resort that allows for an intimate vacation. Approx. 50 cabins ( some quite nice with efficiencies), it lent itself well to what we were looking for.It's a two hour trip by bus from Liberia airport, but the resort and surroundings are great.A twenty minute walk to Samara, the small town that seems alive constantly.There is construction on site but is not intrusive nor overly noisy and becomes 'background noise' after a day or so.The food is very good, the staff welcoming and helpfull.We're beach folks so only hung out at the pool one morning.The beach is great but could have a few more chairs as you have to stake your spot early in the morning. Wild horses run by twice a day, fishermen head in & out on their boats, crabs scurry about at low tide and birds make the best of the opportunity. The walks are pleasurable.The decore is dated but the addition of room may spill over to a remake of the lobby, bar and dining areas.Nightly entertainment was great with various artists, some truly gifted musicians.We travel a fair bit and always look for smaller places to stay and this was perfect for us.

Great little place however.. there are not enough chairs on the beach.. They say it is a "beachfront resort".. but you need chairs to sit on the beach .. or the shade.. There are not enough chairs on the beach to accomodate the people . They absolutely forbid you to move the chairs at the pool (which are unoccupied and are in the sun) to the beach.. Some of the beach chairs are broken as well. This can't be classified as a beachfront resort!!The food was good , not a great variety and fairly simple. Which i prefer. The rooms were great! All in all.. i enjoyed my stay.. They have great a pool bartender.. Daniel!!Linda GiesekingMarch 15-22 2017

Great resort :)

We stayed at the resort from march 11-19 : Great location on the beach and walking distance to Samara. We loved the food but it can get repetitive. The staff was friendly and very helpful - Thanks Marcos and Daniel for the exceptional service!Our room was clean, renovated and close to the beach.The kayak/snorkling excursion was fun and surfing was great for beginners! If you ever decide to go to this resort, bring water shoes!

Quick last minute trip to Costa Rica

The location was lovely with iguanas, lizards and lots of birds on the property. The villas were comfortable and the food very tasty. The staff were very friendly and helpful.You can walk along the beach to get to a small town which had restaurants and shopping and if you are lucky you get to see monkeys with their babies in the trees.
