2019 Cousins Trip

Overall the resort was beautful! Both pools were cold and so was the jaccuzi...guess I expected a hot tub. There was a group of 13 women and we throughly enjoyed ourselves, even in the rain (it was rainy season May). I only have two complaints: 1) Of the 5 nights we were there, we were NEVER able to sit together as a group for ANY meal...the hotel, knowing that we were coming, should have accomadated us at least for ONE dinner night! 2) Each of our rooms had resort credit, however, the hotel did not inform us of such when we checked in. We used several services that allowed us a 25% discount...the resort would NOT reimburse us, even though it was their error! CUSTOMER service could stand some education and additional training.

Perfect relaxing get away

Comfy rooms, clean and quiet. Our deluxe bay view room had a beautiful view. The food was decent in the buffet( which is smaller than some other resorts I’ve been to) but still really good, could offer a few more options. The al a cart restaurants were very delicious and we had a private event with a private chef and that meal was excellent. Drinks were typical for all inclusive resorts, small glasses, lots of ice... but they tasted pretty good. The room was clean and the mini bar was useful but only refilled every other day.l, which wasn’t that great, but if You happened to be there while they were filling you could ask for an extra or two. I suggest bringing a large cup( from $store) and having the bar fill it with ice/ water or whatever you prefer to bring back to your room. Also the pool bar closes kinda early. The whole resort is kinda closed early. I mean the disco and lounge are opened late night, but not many shows or entertainment. Still a nice atmosphere to relax and enjoy the beauty of Costa Rica. Monkeys and lizards and birds and Coatis (raccoons) on the resort. Keep your room door closed! Staff were friendly and helpful. Especially the drivers of the transportation carts which are needed for the steep hills and steps around the resort. However, our room wasn’t too bad of a walk, which we did and it made us feel better about the indulgence of food and drinks! Would consider going back to this resort in I ever get a chance to go back!

Zen location

This was truly a beautiful location, the staff and the resort was out of this world. If you need a relaxing vacation with no kids and becoming one with yourself or the ppl u travel with this is the location for you. The view no matter where you look is out of this world. I would definitely recommend this location. The only downside is the food options can be better and the water pressure in the rooms isn’t the best. But again this is a beautiful location and great time had..

Plenty to do and see!

This was a beautiful nicely landscaped resort. There were lots of onsite activities to choose from. ( Kayaking, ATVs, Snorkeling etc.) The food was best at breakfast with lots of fresh fruits and the omelet station. The resort wasn't crowded and the beach was beautiful with abundant wildlife. (Monkeys, iguanas, hermit crabs.) Would highly recommend. There were a lot of stairs to climb to the lobby and restaurants, but the shuttle was available nonstop if you chose not to walk.

What's to Love

All-inclusive and adults-only resort perched on a cliff with breath-stealing views.

Lounging either by the glistening pool or on the beautiful sands - either spot - you win.

Upgrading to Premium Level - VIP access to restaurants, exclusive lounge, free Wi-Fi & more.

This exotic paradise has bird watching and organized nature walks. Pack your binoculars.

Rejuvenating at the spa - massages, facials, steam room, pedis and all kinds of pampering.

 

What We'd Change

The walk back from the beach is a bit of a hike, but at least it's a walk from one paradise to another and there are all-inclusive cocktails waiting.

 

Why You Should Go

You're just a short 35 minutes from the airport. This tropical wonderland awaits you.

Lots of sporty adventures - snorkeling, paddle boarding, volleyball, tennis and more.

Explore on a guided cycling tour or book an excursion to one of Costa Rica's epic sights.

The resort gives you a tide schedule, so you'll know the best times to hit the waves.
