4/10 Fair

The hotel is just okay. There is no a/c and I understand they are trying to be sustainable but the least they could do is have a small fan for the room. Our room had a small 2x2 window that opened which didn’t give any airflow. The room just felt stuffy all the time! The bathroom doesn’t have a fan so even our fresh towels were damp 24/7. Nothing dries here including any water coming from the shower or sink. The door isn’t even properly sealed to the frame and the deadbolt didn’t work so it didn’t feel very safe. You can hear EVERYTHING because there is no proper seals to any door. No mini fridge so we couldn’t keep drinks cold or bring home food. Everyday our towels seem to dwindle. Started with 4 bath towels and the next day only had two and the following day our face clothes were gone. It’s clean in the room and the sheets had a strong cleaner smell. The hotel it’s self is nice to walk around but it smells like a sewer system near the entrance and the ramp to the pool. Drinks at the bar are good and the breakfast was good. Overall would not recommend this place.

Absolutely amazing hotel. It is beautiful and staff is very friendly and helpful. The gardens in the property were a nice surprise. The pool is covered and warm, so we were able to enjoy during a warm rainy evening. The food in the restaurant was also really good.

6/10 Good

Property was very nice. Beautiful grounds. Great pool. Nice walking trail which I really liked. Private gated parking for my moto. Beautiful pool, and outdoor yoga area and other outdoor relaxing areas. All of the above was outstanding. The negatives were, my room received a good bit of heat in the window off the lower level metal roof (right outside my window) This made it hard to get my room down to even outside temps. And no A/C. My last concern, for such a nice CR property, with hiking trails and yoga center…. The breakfast options were all very heavy. Every option contained fried foods. These were to heavy for me. I would love to see a healthy light option such as granola or oatmeal yogurt fruit and toast. Nothing like that was available. Overall 4 out of 5 due to the above. Almost a perfect property.

6/10 Good

Overall I am a bit disappointed with Expedia on this one. Despite the 4 star rating, this really should have been 3 stars. The heated and covered pool with swim up bar and happy hour specials was nice but there were really no other amenities on the property (ie gym) or room (extra space, dining table, soundproofing) to warrant a 4th star. The food at the restaurant was not good (fish tacos were made with frozen fish sticks). Also the “kids club” was just a small play kitchen for 3-4 year olds and not a true kids club.

Unfortunately this was not a 4 star hotel. The shower did not close properly and flooded into the room. In addition, there is no air conditioning or mini fridge in the room. We tried to stay outside the room until we needed to rest.

We only stayed one night here, but I loved it and would definitely go back. The hotel grounds are really nice and there is a lovely walking path. The staff was friendly, the room was nice and even had our own little table to sit at outside the room. I felt like we were staying in a tree house in the jungle! It is a moderate walk to any of the restaurants or actual "town" area, so I was glad we had a rental car, otherwise that part would have been a down side. Hopefully we can go back again one day!
