We took several couples and enjoyed a nice couple of days in Guanacaste at this resort. The staff were friendly and spoke English, which was super helpful. The food was never-ending and tasted great! I ate so much ceviche!
Stayed here in October 2018. The staff was wonderful and the accomodations were lovely. We had an unforgettable trip, truely amazing. The staff made sure we were able to do the things we wanted to do and we couldn't have asked for a better trip.
