    From check in to check out, we received great service. There was lot of sanitizer stations and you would see staff coming and spraying hotel pool chairs multiple time a day for safety and social distancing was in place. Staff were great too; Jessica & Mario were very welcoming and helpful Angel at the pool took amazing care of us Jaime at the Italian restaurant gave us an extraordinary & memorable 1st anniversary dinner and treated us just as great when we returned a few nights later. Gabriella at banana wind was delightful to speak with Our room was cleaned daily and we have only positive to say For an all inclusive there was plenty of options of food and drinks (alcoholic & non alcohol). Bottle of water were available free of charge at the pool bar & at the restaurant Beach is right across the street ans nice, pool chair were provided to us upon request Only negative is if you are a light sleeper, there is a bird choir every morning at 5am pool side and it’s pretty loud. But it only bothered us first morning than we slept through it all the other mornings

    Beautiful and close access to the beach at walking distance. Near by shopping centers and proximity to other attractions. Negative aspect unfortunately is pool closed after 8pm. All inclusive does not include liquor or water only natural juices and alcoholic beverages not plan liquor. Hotel rooms have empty refrigerators noting inside. All snacks close by 8. Nice quiet resort kid friendly but for the price i would expect better. Additional resort fees for tourists and stays on top of nightly fee.

    Resort was friendly, peaceful and close to the beach at the close walking distance. The negative aspect is all inclusive was purchased but it only granted the majority of the food. Liquor and water are not included. The room refrigerators are empty and the resort charges additional resort fees not including in the original resort fee.

    The hotel is right in front of the beach. You can actually hear the ocean from your room what makes it very relaxing to sleep. Their customer service is really good. Hotel staff is kind, helpful and caring. I decided not to pay for the all inclusive service because we do not really eat a lot. However, I highly recommend you to take it. Eating and drinking in the hotel is expensive. A Costa Rican traditional dish called Casado can be $8 in some places, here you pay $18. A beer in a bar is $3 and in the hotel is $5. Nonetheless, food is really good. If you choose the option of only breakfast, I can tell you that you will have enough and the options are fair enough as well. Our room was spacious, with two double beds, a good TV, a little kitchenette, a sofa and small table to share. I would go back for sure.
