We stayed here for 4 nights in late September. We had a suite facing the ocean, overlooking the grounds and pool in the foreground. The room was fantastic, very clean, had a large bath and half (!)- the half bath was in the sitting area. Robes, slippers, etc.
The grounds are very beautiful, the pool is large, but planned such that there are very small intimate areas of the pool that connect with a large central portion. The plantings which are native are just lovely, and you see iguanas walking around the property. No bugs. The ocean is right there, but no beach really. So if you are a big beach person, this is not your resort. However you will have fun because there is so much else. in fact we walked past the golf course (got a jogging route map) and saw macaws, a monkey and 2 toucans.
The food at breakfast was excellent, with lots of choices, very fresh. The drinks at the bar were very good. We ate one dinner which was good, not great. The service was always excellent.
The property is quite beautiful, the conference area is cordoned off from the main areas, and I am sure most guests did not even know there was a 100 people conference going on (my husband was attending it). This to me was a winning feature, because it can spoil one's holiday to see conference posters, etc.
We did not have a car and it seemed somewhat far away from other places. We did arrange a tour to Manuel Antonio on our own (will be reviewing separately). Cannot speak to hotel arranged activities or spa or golf. All in all, really nice.
