Overall our stay was pleasant but was not completely what we expected. The security fences topped with barbed wire everywhere in the town was a bit discouraging when we arrived. The pictures on their website are incredibly deceiving to the point they look photo shopped or something. The only reason I'm rating this location a three out of five and... More

This is a very nice place, I love the circular pool with the wet bar. The price is adequate and its in front of the beach, they have surf lessons (if you are interested in that) and the restaurant is good with complementary breakfast. I like a lot going to this place

We had to switch rooms 3 times because of different problems with the water, air etc. The staff were not very friendly. Had some spiders and aunts in the room. It is located a few minutes outside of the main tourist area. For the price and quality i would defenitley not recommend this hotel to tourist.

My youngest son turned 20 this weekend. He wanted to go to the beach. So, with the help of a living social coupon we went to the beach. The resort was as expected.

If you are looking for a nice hotel/resort this is NOT the place. Pictures were extremely deceiving. The place is extremely run down and the best way to describe it would be a very average motel.

I found an air and hotel deal on Expedia for Morgan’s Cove. Before we even left for vacation, we started having problems with this “resort”. According to the deal, Morgan’s Cove was supposed to charge $102 USD roundtrip per car for the airport transfer.

The termite excrement was everywhere, every morning. Costa Rica is home the most deadliest snakes on the planet, and they could all easily slither under the gap below the door, and so could ants, cockroaches, gnats, flies, mosquitos. The hotel is long overdue for updating. The hotel is more like a leftover from the early 1960's, probably built then and... More
