Bday Celebration

I went with my family to celebrate our birthdays, we stayed at the Suites and I would definitely recommend them, the fact that they are in a separe building makes them more private, the pool and restaurant are nice and the view is simply amazing, having the jacuzzi in the balcony, just perfect. Maybe the service at the restaurant La Galería was kind of slow, but the food was good. Kids Room incredible...100%

The bird life in the grounds alone was stunning!

My wife and I stayed here for four nights towards the end of our Costa Rica tour itinerary.They say you should save the best till last and I do believe we did!We arrived during the start of the low season and there was quite a bit of building work going on. It took us a while to figure out that we needed to climb the stairs from reception and walk through the dining area to access the rest of the hotel. We initially went the long way round through the hotel gardens. The building work did not detract from our stay in any other way and upon arrival we were told that we had been upgraded from a garden room to a Vista Suite. This more than compensated for any inconvenience due to the alterations that were going on.I took note of the posts of previous reviewers who claimed that the food in the restaurants was overpriced and only average at best. My wife and I walked out in an evening to Manuel Antonio and ate at local restaurants there. it was a fair trek so we opted for a 10$ taxi ride back.The breakfast was very good and all the staff members were brilliant, which to be honest was pretty much the case in the whole of Costa Rica.As it was the start of the low season the hotel was by no means full and everywhere seemed peaceful and uncrowded. Bird photography is my passion and this resort was excellent in that respect.A wonderful end to a fantastic holiday - Highly recommended!

Some of the best primate sightings were here!

If I had to review the hotel rooms only, I'd give them a four out of five because the rooms were not quite as nice as I expected. Nice enough, but based on the price I suppose I expected a bit more. However, the hotel grounds were gorgeous! An amazing ocean view, beautiful pools and very nice restaurants with delicious food. But the highlight of our stay was the surprising and closeup encounters with sloths, howler monkeys and capuchin monkeys! Yep, sloths live there. I also saw crabs, iguanas (all over!) and so many amazing birds! I'd say this a must stay based on the animals alone!

Mountaintop resort

Many nice things about this hotel. Beautiful mountaintop views of the ocean. Beach was not worth walking to. I would not classify this as a beach resort. Pools very crowded so had trouble finding a place to sit. Spa massage was not good at all and I got shorted by 30 min. (Booked an 80 min, got. 50 min). Animals were fun to see. Breakfast buffet was only included for 2 and we had 2 kids and price was way too high for kids that wanted 1 bowl of cereal and a piece of toast. There are no waiters working the pool so you have to go to the bar. Nice balcony in room. There are some nice restaurants close by and views were beautiful.
