BEWARE!!!!! Not safe here.
I am not sure where to begin. From the beginning the staff was not very welcoming and the first thing they do when you arrive is try to get you to sign up for a sales pitch to buy property there and then over priced tours. You are taken to the area of your room and told where it is and I had to carry my own luggage up 3 flights of stairs. The bed was very uncomfortable and the wi/fi was only available in the lobby which was down two flights of stairs. The food and drinks were free but not good at all. Then on the last day there I went to the beach early and when I got back to my room the room safe was open and my credit cards and ID were missing. When I called the front desk they didn't even act like they cared!! They did not offer to assist me with cancelling the cards and I had to make them let me use their phone to do so. A " rent-a-cop" they have took my statement but I had to ask three times to get a copy for my records. I told them I wanted to call the real police but they kept telling me I would have to go down to the police department and it would take all day. They knew I was leaving for my daughter's wedding and didn't have time to do that. I want everyone to know that I would not go back there if they gave me free rooms and you should not waste your money going there.

Room only review.
We did not participate in the all inclusive scenario, just booked a room.The villas/rooms are located on a very hilly, gated property. There are no sidewalks along the tiny roads, but the hotel provides a shuttle bus that makes its rounds every 15 mins or so. Our room was very clean and modern. There are pools and restaurants/bars on the grounds, however we did not use them since we had a car and preferred exploring the area on our own.

My advice: Do NOT book this place!
This place is not so great. The rooms are spread out over steep hills, which makes it difficult to walk anywhere without needing to wait 15 minutes or more for the hotel shuttle. The food is disgusting - the lettuce at dinner was brown and the fruit had bugs in it. Everything in the hotel is done very cheaply and you have to purchase bracelets to eat at the restaurants. Who wants to wear a plastic bracelet during their entire vacation?! No one. Also, please note there is NO WIFI. That was a scam. The website says they have wifi, but you're forced into paying $25 to access the hotel lobby wifi. There is not internet access anywhere else in the resort. Thumbs down.

Ok, close to beach
We booked one night here before we headed out of Papagayo eastward into the rainforest. This "all-inclusive" resort definitely feels "all-inclusive." It seems like large family tour groups stay here before heading out on tours during the day. It wasn't anything fancy, but it sufficed as a place to sleep for the night. Breakfast and dinner are included - that is, if you make it in time before the close the kitchen.

Just ok
This hotel is very expensive for what it has to offer. It is very outdated and in need of renovation. The grounds are ok but the room we had smelled and it was like a dungeon. Also they are the only hotel we stayed at in CR that charges for WIFI every other hotel was free. The food was just ok for a day but I dont think I would stay there and eat every day. It is also way out there with nothing else to do around.
