The only positive things I can say was that we had a nice view from our room and our shuttle driver and massage therapist were very professional and friendly.

I found the reception staff to be quite abrupt. The lighting in the room was terrible for reading and the walls were so

This place is built on a very steep hillside -- you need to use the hotel shuttle or drive your rental to the parking lot for your unit, but otherwise this place is great. Very helpful staff. Had a tour reservation person on staff who booked us a couple terrific tours (night an

To sum up - this hotel has a weird Bond villain feeling to it. They have large stone corridors that are very loud from the echo and larger rooms with almost no furniture. And in the rooms you hear everything that happens in the corridor since it’s so loud.

The service is not friendly, but very formal, distant, without making any effort to give you a pleasant stay. Receptionists behave in an arrogant way. Terrain is much too big, this is really a hotel for an easy-to-please North American market, not for Europeans. Rooms are OK, but

Hi! Can this hotel cater for gluten free?
Hi, we only used the hotel bedrooms and didn’t eat there. Sorry I can’t be more helpful. Try contacting the hotel directly.

I will be leading a group of high school students through Costa Rica. I would love to see any pictures of the breakfast buffet or a breakdown of the types of food available. I'm traveling with some picky eaters. Thank you in advance!!!!!
I found the breakfast buffet at each hotel to be very similar. Some items you can find are "typical" Costa Rican food like rice and beans and American food like cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, waffles and pancakes (at some places), eggs, etc. All buffets had juice, coffee, water, milk, tea and fruits like bananas, pineapple, papaya, etc. Hope you have fun!
