Client Rating for Costa Rica 5/5 from 216 reviews
I wasn't immediately impressed upon arrival at the hotel - it was too "hotel like", compared to previous locations but it slowly grew on me during our stay. We found service in the main restaurant Makoko was lacking on the one night we dined there, but all other nights we ate in the less formal "Matiss" restaurant which served delicious food and we found the service there very attentive. This hotel was mainly full of guests from the United States, who were rather loud! Other hotels had European guests who tended to be a little.... quieter! We enjoyed the fact that there was lots of space for guests to sunbath or sit - again, we enjoy somewhere fairly peaceful so we enjoyed sitting under the trees on the grass adjacent to the beach rather than around the main pool. The height of the beds was rather too high for me - they must have been about 75/80cm high and I needed to use a chair to climb into it!
