Nice Resort
Very large resort. Long walk to beach. Food ok except Italian restaurant which was horrible. Steak house was very good. Modern look, beautiful rooms. It's out by itself need a car to do anything else, too far to walk anywhere.

Great family trip to CR!
Great hotel! Pools and beach were nice. Max at the front desk was always very helpful and the staff at the pool made activities fun for the whole family. Our room was lovely and very comfortable. The shows at night were pretty fun. The food was great at these locations Arenal and Tokio. Krystal (Fine dining) and Papaguayo (Steak House) were average. Over cooked steak at Papaguay and average food at Krystal. Great trip hope to come back in the next 5 years!
