    The Best Vacation and Resort

    Our family had the best time at this resort. The location is fabulous, as are the staff and accommodations. We were immediately upgraded to a suite with a full kitchen. Monkeys of all sorts routinely visit this property. I asked the on site naturalist, Elias, if we would have a good chance to see a sloth on the tour of Manual Antonio park, and he showed by that there were two with babies in a mango tree by the pool. The complimentary breakfasts are excellent, and the lunches and dinners are a great value.

    3 Strikes and not out

    When I arrived in my room. The safe did not work, the toilet did not flush and I thought the phone was broken because no one answered when I called 0. Later the phone worked so the front desk was probably busy. I walked all the way to front desk to ask for help. Furthermore, I learned that there was no remote for the television. Usually, 3 strikes and your out. But despite having to wait in my room for help without television, they came within half hour then had to call tech person so within a wasted hour of my trip all was working properly. The rest of experience was excellent except for the poor condition of the monkey hiking trail.

    Great for Couples; Quiet Weekends

    PROS Great for couples / romantic weekends / anniversaries. The service and attentiveness of staff is top-notch. The setting in the middle of a rainforest is incredible. Close access to the beach and plenty of parking. You can get almost everything you need at the hotel (they really won't want you to leave). Complementary breakfast - the offerings are the same every morning, but it's really nice to have it included in the stay. For Americans, the staff will book your (required) COVID-19 test to get you back into the country (make this appointment at least 2 weeks before you arrive). Swim-up bar at the main pool. CONS Rooms could use a little updating (our flat screen TV was probably one of the first versions ever made). Little ants in the sink - I didn't mind but my husband called the front desk twice about the presence of them. It is a pretty windy, tricky road when you are driving there. Confoundingly, all the pools close at 7pm. The premium on drinks and food is very obvious and a bit obnoxious, but I suppose it's a premium you pay for not having to leave. It is EXTREMELY QUIET AT NIGHT and you will need to leave the compound to get some nightlife (this isn't necessarily a bad thing).

    Beautiful place

    The place is beautiful. Service is great. We enjoyed our stay very much. The best beach is Manuel Antonio. You need to walk a mile to get there, but it's totally worth it.

    The place and the view are amazing. You need to book anything (pool, gym, etc...) which is painful especially when you are on holiday and chilling... The service at the restaurant is way too slow... but people are very nice and helpful!
