The staff were so friendly! They made us cappuccinos at check in, helped us track down a lost person after our party got separated, had a great Argentinian steak house next door, and made breakfast early for our crack of dawn flight!

Great service, wonderful staff, delicious breakfast, and very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The only thing I would like to see is a no noise policy after 10:00pm. Sometimes people congregate around the pool area until past midnight and it can be very noisy if you need to get some sleep.

Thank you so much for your comments, so glad we were able to serve and pamper you!!

Highly recommend! Very clean since I lost my earring and had to look under the bed etc. The staff was very helpful with our first visit to Costa Rica. Safe place to park your rental car too.
