Highly recommend

alma0115 (Fort Worth, Texas) on Jun 21, 2022

We enjoyed our stay here very much! The staff was amazing, and Cristina went above and beyond to help us. She welcomed us with a great attitude and took the time to assist us with a personal issue. There was always some form of entertainment going on; it was great not having to leave the resort for anything although the was also plenty to do and see in the town.

Resort is situated on the beach good that it has private beach but rooms are not good as per the resort it needs renovation. Food is good but the snacks counter it was not good as like chips was stale and also popcorn too was stale. Hotel staff is friendly but expect reception staff it is language problem.

Underwhelming all-inclusive

gamevod (Berlin, Germany) on Jun 11, 2022

This all-inclusive hotel will be disappointing to US travelers who have stayed at other all-inclusives, like Beaches or Club Med. The accommodations are not modern, but reasonably well maintained. The beach is small, mostly rocky. The food is below average for this category, about the level of Golden Corral in the US. There is no pool wait service and the pool bar is not fully equipped to do many drinks. The mixed drinks tend to be pretty watery. There is very little English spoken (compared for example to Club Med’s pretty evenly multilingual approach). During our stay there were a lot of local day pass users, who often do not treat the facilities like full time guests. The pool is small relative to hotel capacity and when the day trippers come in, chairs may be hard to come by. A bit like going to Florida at spring break - not my usual choice. Tamarindo is a surf place, and there is some surfing off the hotel beach, but with the rocks it is best for experienced surfers. Most surfing is in town, which is about a 30 minute walk from the hotel. I would not recommend this hotel compared to all of the other all-inclusives available in Mexico and the Caribbean.

I spent 5 nights at this hotel and had a great time! The staff were all so sweet and friendly. I have an allergy and was still able to find food for each meal. Tried lots of fun drinks. Loved watching the surfers at the beach. The best sunsets I saw in Costa Rica were here at the beach! I highly recommend the spa, I had a clay wrap and facial and it was perfect! Wifi didn't work in my room in building 4 but not an issue for me. Semi complaint is that the coffee was gross, but I am a coffee snob for sure! The pool is huge and the entertainment team does a great job. The room was very clean and had everything I needed. Easy walk into the city, takes about 20 minutes or take a cab or the bus!
