The hotel is nice, pretty views and our room had a balcony right in between the trees... Altoguh i think a bit overpriced for what they actually offer. Also staff wasnt as helpful. But overall our experience was good and fun. We loved costa rica

The hotel was wonderful, staff super friendly, rooms clean, bed comfy, relaxing balcony, nice pool, delicious healthy breakfast, can see sloths & monkeys around. And the best part of all is the access to a truly amazing beach.
