We weren’t staying at this beautiful hotel, but 500m up the road for a couple of days. We emailed ahead to check they had space for us, and we dressed for the evening. We were treated so well by the staff, a proper five star experience with so much of kindness by everyone we met, all of the waiting staff, receptionist and the bellboy who took us on a buggy trip across the stunning resort. There is a small pool outside the restaurant full of very noisy frogs; my daughter was taken out by a waiter with a torch to hunt for them during a downpour. I wish I remembered the gentleman’s name, he made the evening. The food was great, but the human touch made it almost pale into insignificance.

Unforgettable and wonderful, thank you. I hope to stay with you later in our holiday (if I have any budget left!).

Lots of options. Fresh and clean buffet. Eggs and pancakes to order. Lots of fresh juices including green juice. We enjoyed our breakfasts here and our teen only ate the Costa Rican breakfast because he said it was amazing.

This eatery serves local Costa Rican food and nightly music. It's festive and the food is excellent!
