A spectacular view from up high. There is a walking trail to a small crescent beach below that for the most part is relatively peaceful. There are some chair and food/drink vendors but not aggressive. The hotel itself has nice rooms and a couple of pools. Quepos tourist area and downtown are close by.

The property overall was beautiful. The staff was very attentive and made sure that my boyfriend and I were happy with everything. They started helping me plan his 40th birthday weeks before we traveled there. Some excursions were planned through the hotel as well. That was a great help. Everyone is so nice and our two weeks there was well worth it. We definitely would recommend staying there on a visit to Costa Rica.
