This is a kid friendly resort with pools & water slides. On site is a butterfly sanctuary, croc & croc farm, fish pond, zip lining & horseback riding
The standard room is small with the bed taking up most of the room. The pull out cot is very hard & uncomfortable. On the other hand the bathroom is very spacious Upgrade to the superior room which is large & beautiful
The villas are spread out & a lot of times up the hill. There is a shortcut to the pool & restaurant but also a shuttle available at any time.
If you want quiet, walk past the pool & bar up to the top. Combo hot spring & pool with a resident iguana.
Taxis to town $8. Go to a soda for food. Tico type meal. Try soda viquez. The casado with either fish, chicken or beef is delicious and so affordable. ( sea bass, 5 sides for $5 us!!)
Bring a small flashlight for the paths at night & a face cloth or shower scrunchie.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely.
