Costa Rica is a beautiful place, but the hotel lanscape surprised me. I have never seen black sand before my visit here. It is an interesting look. Different, but still beautiful. However the beach has trash everywhere and it is absolutely one of the dirtiest I've ever seen.
The common areas of the resort are well kept, covered with tile, brick and artificial grass, probably to handle the wear and tear from so many children running about :) as this is a family resort. Hearing the little ones play and laugh made sitting outside enjoyable. The staff is friendly, and with the exception of the the seafood restaurant, the food is just ok.
Since this is supposed to be an all-inclusive resort, I'm not exactly thrilled about the fact that there is a charge to use wi-fi in my room, while the open areas of the resort are free. The tv signal was not great, and there were only two english channels available. HBO and the WB.
I will not be coming back to this resort, and I don't recommend it...unless you enjoy a lot of time in or near the pool.
