Great stay
Attendants were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Kind of surprised that there were no hair dryers. I would definitely stay there again

Wonderful hotel by Costa Rica standards. Surrounding area dangerous at night. Take taxi after dark for safety. Fantastic restaurant on premises with casino and small bar with a good menu. WIFI was sporadic at best. Doesn't work in rooms. Staff very friendly. My advise is to book online with Don't call the hotel, very few employees speak English and your reservation will not be booked accurately.
