8/10 Very good

Costa Rican Disney
First off, the property is beautiful. Absolutely stunning. The service is great and all the staff are very kind and helpful. The animal park on site and the walking trails to the waterfalls are well-kept and enjoyable. I only have two complaints. First off, the bed was extremely uncomfortable. It was rockhard which was disappointing for the rest of the quality of the room which was amazing. I’ve stayed in lots of hotels, and it was probably in the top five worst beds I have ever slept in. My other complaint is how over-the-top the resort is with some things. They’re trying really hard to be a Disneyland type experience for their guest. And that probably works for most people, but for us it was a bit too whitewashed and left a lot of the local culture to be desired. The food was overpriced and not very good, so we mostly drove into the local village to eat and had good experiences there. If you want somewhere safe and “polished” then this is definitely the place for you. But if you want to experience any actual Costa Rican culture, I would encourage you to venture outside of the resort
