Almost as good as it gets

This hotel has a superb location. It is beautifully furnished and well laid out. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Indeed my wife left a piece of jewellery behind and it was delivered to our follow on hotel in another part of the country in a few days - and remember this is Costa Rica where travel can be difficult!!!! The rooms are kept spotless and then there are the 'towel sculptures'. Beats any cruise we've been on. Our only reservation was with the pool bar staff who always seemed more interested in themselves, needed lessons in making cocktails and weren't very happy. So come on Nayara that's all you have to fix!!!

Le cadres est enchanteur, le personnel au petit soin, la chambre grande et magnifique, la baignoire balnéo sur la terrasse est un must et les termes de l’hôtel sont en pleines natures: allez y les yeux fermés!
