Very nice hotel. Great views form every room. Loved the food! My ac did not worked properly; the day I left, I found no one at 6am to help me with my check out or open the front gate to catch my Uber to the airport. Had to force my way out.

My best experience
The best hotel, staff, and service I have ever known. They had every detail for sight-seeing, the cuisine, local hot-spots, and anything you wanted to know for the best experience. That is from the night staff to the manager and everyone in between. This hotel matched the wonderful experience of Costa Rica and I cannot wait to simply catch up with the friendly staff on our next visit.
