    Excellent Hotel Great Staff

    The property is huge, my family called it a land cruise ship, there was so much going on. The people who work there are extremely nice, overall helpful and try to make your visit comfortable and pleasant. The rooms really need help! They are decorated in a dark wood Game of Thrones style that is not appealing. The furniture is old, the showers have no light in them, bathrooms are large but have a lot of wasted space. While we didn't spend a great deal of time at in our rooms, it would be nice to return to something more updated. The food was very good for the amount of people they serve. It felt like I was back in college eating with 400 people at breakfast and dinner. But there are more 'intimate restaurants on property to eliminate that massive group eating feel. There are pools and bars all over the resort but there are only one or two open at a time forcing you to go be with hundreds of others. Drinks were okay watered down tasting but I quickly became a fan of Pura Vida the local beer. I do have to say the resort only has two wine; red and white and they make church wine seem gourmet. Need to improve that option. Rooms with a view are not as they appear online. However, the resort did change ours; they did not change our daughter's room though and she also paid extra. We spent most day times exploring Costa Rica which was fun. There is a great Adventure Park (zip lines, animal sanctuary) next to the resort if you don't want to go far. We were there to attend a wedding, and it was very pretty on the beach but it was not private. The reception had no air conditioning, not even fans making it uncomfortable in dress attire.
