    Overall the hotel was amazing with excellent sunset views. There were two issues that was not satisfactory about our stay. The first was the bed was very hard and uncomfortable. My husband and I did not get a good nights rest our entire stay.The second issue was the TV in our room did not have English or subtitles available for the non Spanish speakers.

    Beautiful with a soundtrack

    The hotel is in a beautiful location. The service is great and the hotel is comfortable. My only complaint was the loud music from the pool bar. Our room was located directly above it and we like peace and quiet. I realize that younger guests probably like it. The hotel is popular with locals who come to enjoy the pool and it beautiful sunset view over the water.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    A nice hotel, rooms with garden view and a big shower. There is a short walking (10 minutes) entrance to Biesanz beach inside the hotel. The food was good in general, great pizza, however the breakfast can be improved. The poached eggs tasted like vinegar and were very dry. Also there is an amazing wooden oven that can be used for baking bread, but they use regular bread instead. The spa offers good services, a nice time to relax. We took a 75 minutes massage and enjoyed it a lot, however the music finished around 15 minutes before the end of the session.

    Location, views are spectacular. The parking lot is not enough during the weekend. Dinners at the restaurant were so delicious and the staff attention was so nice.

    Jungle Beach Getaway

    Beautiful hotel with scenic views - rooms are very clean and spacious; we recommend the jungle view if you enjoy watching wildlife up close. The capuchin monkeys visited our balcony several times. Service was also great (shout out to Recha and Michell). The restaurant serves a good breakfast and they have great drinks options. You are also pretty close to the beaches, the national park, as well as other cafes and restaurants.

    Amazing!!!!

    Of all the places that I have stayed in the past 67 years of my life, this is the best. The staff is incredible! We really got to know Kevin and Cindy and they were amazing but everyone went above and beyond. Our room was at the bottom of a steep hill and as soon as Kevin saw me, he charged down to pick me up in the cart. I never had to ask.
