Family Friendly and a Great Value

The staff were friendly and helpful. The resort was clean and well maintained. It was a very good place for a family vacation. The beach was great, and the waves were big enough to be very fun; bring a boogie board. the swim up bar and its staff were amazing; Elias, Manolo, and Fiona were wonderful, and kept me from running out of beer while keeping the kids happy with alcohol-free daiquiris and pina coladas.

Absolutely Gorgeous

No high pressure sales here - no riffraff Americans; everyone upstanding and respectable. The staff CANNOT DO ENOUGH FOR YOU!! Everyone speaks English, Dollars are acceptable everywhere (at some places the prices are actually marked in dollars). All major US credit cards are accepted. Transportation from Iberia airport is expensive - do yourself a favor and rent a car; it's a piece of cake driving in Costa Rica. Wait til you get there to book a tour and opt out of foof part of the inclusive - don't limit your options as there are beautiful restaurants across the street.

Felt Like Paradise

This is our 2nd trip with Cheap Caribbean: First you enter a beautiful open air lobby that looks out onto the pool and the ocean. The employees were incredibly kind and helpful. We arrived late and check in was very quick and easy. We had a junior suite which included a kitchenette and sofa sleeper in addition to the two full size beds. The rooms themselves are a bit dated, but quite spacious and comfortable: Very clean; plenty of towels; good housekeeping services. The beach near the hotel is public. However, it was never crowded and it quite clean. There are people who sell souvenirs near the beach. They are very friendly, but not aggressive. We did not have the all inclusive package, but we did have breakfast there each day. The breakfast buffet offered different items each day. There was always cold/hot cereals; fresh fruit and juices. They always offered egg dishes: sometimes scrambled; sometimes huevos rancheros. Meat options; toast; rice and beans daily; one morning we had delicious tamales wrapped in banana leaves! The night we arrived, it was quite late. The restaurants in the hotel were closed and there was nothing open nearby. We'd been traveling all day with very little to eat. The man at the front desk suggested we go up to the casino and ask for a sandwich. The casino is pretty small with several slot machines. There, a young lady was tending bar, and making grilled ham and cheese sandwiches. They were delicious and very appreciated after a long day. I don't drink so I can't comment on the quality of the alcohol served. We loved swimming up to the pool bar and ordering a virgin pina colada. Again, the staff was so friendly and enthusiastic. The resort itself is located in an area where there are many resorts. I have to say though, it did not feel touristy. The area itself is pretty rustic and places close up around 9 pm. We rented a car and enjoyed the freedom of exploring the country side. The parking is free at the resort. I would certainly recommend this resort!

What's to Love

The beach here is great. It's calm and tranquil, the perfect place to splash around with the kids. The ultra-convenient swim-up bar in the pool is a bonus.

 

What We'd Change

With only one restaurant, dining choices might seem limited. But, Arenas Restaurant offers a ton of items, terrific organically grown vegetables and fresh-caught seafood.

 

Why You Should Go

Margaritaville Beach Resort offers a very quiet location tailor-made for serious unwinding. The beach, water sports and exploration opportunities are first rate.
