We were greeted by friendly staff by the pool upon arrival and the check in process was easy. Reminder: the reservation on Expedia is only a hold, you must pay cash or you’ll get charged an 11% credit card fee. We’d forgotten this but she said we could go get cash and pay the next day so that was nice, there’s a bank nearby where you can withdrawal cash. There were a few ants in the room, but somewhat to be expected in Costa Rica. The walls are thin, you can hear conversations from the pool and there was a restaurant behind our room that we could also hear the kids running around/yelling. They have filtered water available to refill bottles, which is a bonus! We didn’t eat at the cafe but the coffee was good. Easy 2ish blocks walk to the beach and they did provide pool/beach towels. The pool was really nice, too!
