      Staff is head over feet in customer Service. Stayed at Villa #5 and the roof shared a terrace on the upper level, it was noisy whenever someone was at the terrace, you could hear the talks and also when our neighbors access the room on the upper level, you could hear and feel them Walking to their room.

      Do not recommend

      This was a disappointing stay, especially since the property grounds are very beautiful. When we arrived, there was no one around to check us in. We had to wait almost 2 hours before a hotel worker came back from the beach with his surfboard and a group of friends. We also had our laundry done there and it was a huge waste of money. They came back with a weird smell and we needed to have them rewashed elsewhere. We also asked about dining options in town and they did not mention that everything in town closes at 9pm so we were unable to eat that night since not even a grocery or corner store was open. We would not recommend. Also keep in mind this is located on a back road with many pot holes. Walking from the beach though, although we went to many better beaches in Costa Rica.

    • 8.0.Very good

      We stayed last week in room 1. The overall atmosphere was lovely, relaxing, nice pool and grounds, decent restaurants nearby, beaches, tamarindo is a 30 min drive away. Dennis at the desk was delightful and interactive with the guests daily. We were overrun with red ants the first night. There was garbage under the sink from the last guests that we did not see and the garbage was full of ants under the sink! We had to find someone who didn't work at the property to get us insecticide spray so we could sleep. We had ants in our beds, they were everywhere. There was a 1-2 inch puddle of water under the bathroom sink from a leak that was never repaired. The bathroom smelled of mold from this and was never addressed even after we reported it on the first of a three day stay! We booked an ATV excursion through Andrea at the desk. Her message to us about the excursion is attached here: "Atvs/Snorkeling on the 16th is confirmed, tour is $80 per person and 13yr will have to go on the back with one of you and she will only pay $20 to be on the back and do snorkeling, tour also includes fresh water and fruits, they will pick you'll up at the hotel at 2:30pm." My children were very excited to swim at the beach and go SNORKELING. I paid $200 US! There was no snorkeling!!! We got filthy on ATVs, drove very slowly, and looked at beaches. I was not happy! We paid the young boys that took us on the tour, but I am very very disappointed in this very expensive and BORING outing!

      Beautiful property in a very quiet area, perfect to relax a few days. The staff were amazing and quickly helped with any problems. The only thing that bothered us a bit was the pressure in the shower. Very low.
