I was very worried about this hotel after reading many negative reviews on this site, but it was great. To be honest, it is not the Ritz and the food wasn't the best I've ever had, but the food wasn't why we were in Costa Rica! It was just fine and plentiful. I plan meetings for a living, making me...

I traveled to Puntarenas with a group of 24 people, ages 5 to 70. The resort is lovely, very ecologically-minded. Lots of flora and the occasional stray cat or dog! An iguana here and there make it a lovely place to see non-scary nature! Also, there are large bats that flutter around at night, but they are only interested in... More
