Client Rating for Costa Rica 5/5 from 216 reviews

Exceptional resort. We decided to upgrade our room here which was $180 for the three days and was worth every cent. Room 436 in Block 4 had great views across Culebra Bay. The room was very large. When we arrived we thought the buildings a little plain but after a day we saw how the blended into the environment unlike the Secrets hotel across the bay with its red roof.. The room was also at the quiet end of the resort. Small but nice beach with complimentary paddle boards and canoes also Jet skis for hire $65 for 30 minutes worth a go for the experience. We would recommend a meal at Ostra restaurant and start with the classic cerviche, quite an exceptional dish of fish and seafood with salad in a Lemon / Corriander dressing. we love sushi but this was better. 10 out of 10. A further tip. the soft drinks in the room are complimentary. Get a few extras from the shop and order a bottle of the local rum from room service. Not too expensive and enjoy drinks on your balcony. Lots of Iguanas and birds and the Howler and Cappucin monkeys are the entertainment. Good snorkelling too,
