Very Relaxing

My husband and I stayed here 5 days and 4 nights in celebration of his 40th birthday.  I called ahead prior to our arrival to let them know we were going to be here to celebrate his birthday.  I also requested a room with one King bed, located on the second floor, and in a building as close to everything as possible,  and boy did they come through on all of my requests, which made us very happy.  We were welcomed with a refreshing welcome drink, and then escorted to our room on a shuttle.  Our room was across from shopping and in close walking distance to the pool, beach, entertainment, & restaurants.  Our room was nice, we had a Jr. Suite and it came with a couch & chair, coffee table, dining room table and chairs, desk, king bed, closet, and a separate stand-alone shower &  toilet, and a balcony with a table and 2 chars.  Our fridge was not stocked, but our shuttle driver made sure to immediately put in a request for our fridge to be stocked.  Someone came right away and stocked it.  None of the rooms have an ocean view, but there is so much greenery it reminds you of a jungle, a really great ambiance.  Every morning we would hear the monkeys and see the birds, and even some animals that looked like racoons. We was so amazed of the wildlife at the resort, that for sure took up for not having an ocean view.  The resort is really nice,  the beach & pool are really  nice.  It was a bit annoying,  the locals constantly asking us for massages, and ATV rides, while we were at the beach.  We enjoyed the bar by the pool, one of the bartenders really hooked us up with great tasting drinks.  We tried room service 3 times,  the Mitra buffet twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner, we had lunch twice at Spirula, we got pizza  the first time and pasta the second, we did two dinner reservations, one at Bamboo one night  and at the Rodizio Grill another night.  We enjoyed the food at the Rodizio Grill the best.  They surprised my husband with a Costa Rican cake that said Happy Birthday on the plate on our first night there, they delivered it to our room, that was a special touch.  Also on his actual birthday I had called ahead to  the Rodizio Grill and let them know we had dinner reservations and that it was his birthday, and they surprised him with another Costa Rican Cake that said Happy Birthday on the plate and they sang Happy Birthday to him in English and Spanish, it was awesome.  The staff at the resort was very friendly and accommodating.  We did a mega combo tour it was amazing I would recommend it to anyone,  it included zip lining, horseback riding, a slide, mud bath, natural hot springs, and lunch.  Very good adventure my husband and I enjoyed ourselves.  If you're really into health and fitness they have a nice workout facility there that we used,  they also have a variety of healthy foods and juices to drink as well on the menus.  We loved this resort.   Our only complaints would be that we didn't like having to make reservations for dinner,  some nights we were just too tired to get all dressed up to go eat at a set time.  We had made reservations  for all 4 nights we were there,  and only made it to two of them,  the other two we canceled,  because we were just too tired.  And you have to make reservations asap, because the restaurants fill up fast.  i wish besides the Mitra buffet that there was another restaurant that was open all day and night where you could go whenever you wanted without reservations and having to dress up.  We didn't like how at some of the restaurants  if you wanted the chefs special or a certain drink,  there was an additional cost.  We found out there is levels  to the wrist bands, so if you don't have a higher priced room you only get the cheap liquor.   It's disappointing  to pay as much as you pay for 5 Star All Inclusive to only get cheap liquor, and if you want top shelf or a higher level of alcohol you have to pay for it.   Oh and this is a very Green Resort, they are all about recycling, conserving energy, water, and things like that. Very impressive.Other than a couple of complaints we had about this resort, we enjoyed ourselves and had a really good time.

Just ok

We have been here for 8 days today. We picked the family package. With the family package, you get to have an area at the pool exclusive for the family package and not much else. The good: The stuff are so very friendly. The hotel grounds are well maintained and lush. It has rained on and off but we have seen at least four relatively dry days. The pool is pleasantly warm. The beach is very long and clean with various-colored sands. The views are spectacular. The rooms are kept clean. The food is hit and miss. Our favorite ones are the pizza place, manglar, faisanella and la sabana. I wish the the pizza place would be open at night as well. The daycare was full of activities. Our daughter wanted to go straight to the daycare after breakfast everyday. Unfortunately, it is open until 5. The just OK: The hotel is just ok. It doesn't wow you. For the price, our expectations were way higher. We have been to many different countries and the service compared to any of those is just ok. The bamboo restaurant should not offer sushi. Such a disappointment. The mitro buffet lacks variety. The great: We found Erik Garcia on the second day we were here. And bought the racer bike activity. It was one the most memorable days we have had here. It took more than two hours riding along different beaches. We were with our 7 year old and she had a blast! The mega package we purchased from the hotel was great as well. I believe it is the Swiss travel. Luis, our guide, was very knowledgeable and fun. He made the tour extraordinarily special. Our tour highlights were the horseback riding, hot springs and the pottery and coffee place we got to see on the tour. The zip-lining felt a little rushed.

  • GlobalTravelerBLZ :

I am honestly surprised at the high reviews this hotel receives on TripAdvisor. Our family was supposed to stay here a whole week but left after 2 nights. The rooms are not very well planned, convenient or clean. The "all inclusive" food is just bad - orange juice is watered down as are other juices. The French restaurant was the only descent place we tried. The beach location is nice at this hotel but that is about it. I would recommend the Hyatt Andaz over the Westin any day. What you get compared to what you pay is not in balance here (whether paying with points or cash).
