Natural Remote Oasis

Pros: It's ability to be simple and unobtrusive.
Location: Did a jetski tour in the mangrove right behind the hotel. Can enjoy swimming and surfing, or 30 minute drive to Manuel Antonio National Park.
Beautiful hotel situated on an island far from activity. Great for a relaxing get-a-way. Each unit is decorated with such care to be kind to the environment while providing a relaxing atmosphere. Beach is just steps away, and we never saw more than a handful of others there. Can relax under a hut in a hammock, or swim in a lovely pool. More for couples than families with young children. Pretty far drive to go elsewhere for meals, and drinks/dinner/lunch were more expensive than we had planned.

Remote. Gorgeous. Great Value.

Pros: Marketing 101- location location location.
Cons: Nothing. The staff, resort grounds, beach is gorgeous.
Location: Beach is across the street and the hotel restaurant is great. Otherwise, it's about a 10-15 taxi ride into town.
I don't typically go on vacations for the hotels, but this resort left an impression. It was absolutely gorgeous and I really couldn't decide whether I wanted to hang out in my room or go to the beach. Both are so amazing. For the value, you just can't beat this type of lodging. You walk across a gravel road to the beach....and this beach is the most amazing beach you will ever see. (I've been to many). No seaweed, no rocks...shallow water and BATH temperature. We spent hours in the ocean just riding the waves. My warning is that this hotel is remote....just enjoy your time won't want to leave anyways!!! The only thing that's tough, is that your only option getting here is a taxi or your own rental car. The closest bus station is in Parrita and Quepos. Diana, the owner, will arrange any transportation you need.

WOW !!!!!

This place is one of a kind .... From the time we checked in to the time we checked out we were impressed ( 5 days ) I dont understand why this resort is not a 5 STAR. The restaurant menu offered a large selection from a ham and cheese sandwich to a excellent steak and seafood items Service at the resort was the best i have ever witness . Edward and his peers was on top of their game . Rooms and facilities were up to date and very clean. While wife and i were at breakfast the housekeepers would clean our room. The resort has a full time security ( 4 dogs ) that we enjoyed watching on the beach playing in the surf . The owner was available at all times to answer question or help with excursions and made our stay feel like we were part of the family . When we plan our next trip to CR not only will we stay there but also encourage family and friends to stay at this resort. AGAIN WOW !!!!!
