We love this place and go back every year.

We were offered a ocean view for a little extra $ and was it worth it. I really enjoyed sitting out on my balcony listening to the rain at night. The breakfast buffet was awesome and especially the sweet lady that made hand made tortillas. We love the people that work at this property. The Bell Man Debys is super helpful and so were all of the room service folks. Our room was promptly cleaned every morning and by the time we were ready for a rest from all the great activities we were lounging and relaxing waiting for the cooler afternoon to get back to the pool. This is secluded property and it really feels safe and comfortable to be out on the beach at night. I would not do that many other places in Costa Rica, but here absolutely

Luxury customer service!

As many JW we have visited service seems to be a number one priority for this Chaim of hotel. In this particular one I want to bring up the amazing service we have received fromEveryone. The food is delicious, bartender are amazing, always willing to surprise with your favorite cocktail even those are not in their menus. And the experience at the Spa is second to none. I highly recommend the Saturday special you will just love it. Geanina is just the best.

Great resort

This resort was a life saver! We were staying at a horrible hotel (you can see my previous posts) and this such a relief to drive up to. The resort is gorgeous, the restaurants are delicious, and there are so many things to do! We went mountain biking and hung out by the pool. The beach is very rocky so you have to be careful swimming in it. The pool is absolutely incredible- it makes up for the fact that you aren't in the ocean. This is far away from the town of tamarindo but there is a shuttle that will take you there and back if you want to go.

Nice Stay!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 days and we enjoyed our stay! The grounds are beautiful, the staff was very helpful and friendly at all times. The food on property was good but very expensive so we went off property for our meals and most were half the price that the hotel was charging! Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would probably visit again!

Tasteful and Well Maintained

A physically lovely resort, tastefully decorated and well maintained. A standard big-chain resort in terms of layout, offerings and food. The staff was pleasant and helpful, although not extraordinarily so. The property is well off the main road, within a larger development that includes homes and a golf course. It’s about a twenty-minute drive to the town of Tamarindo, a funky little surfer's haven worth checking out. When we were there--mid-August--the resort felt a bit deserted (dinner in a near-empty restaurant, for example). The fantastic, large pool is far more enticing than the beach, which we found to be true wherever we went in Costa Rica.
