The Condovac is a located right above a very beautiful beach. My wife and I upgraded are place from a one bedroom to a two bedroom place for our 30th wedding anniversary. The location of the two bedroom rooms have a much nicer view from our upstair master bedroom than the one bedroom rooms. It was well worth it to us to wake up with this beautiful view from our bedroom. The grounds of the Condovac are very well maintain and the staff are all very friendly. If you do not speak spanish most of the staff speak english but not all. But this is what we love about this place, most of the people staying here are from Costa Rica and speak little english. My wife loves this so she can practice her spanish. The food at the restaurant is overprice and not all that great, but has a great view with a wonderful staff that are so friendly and helpful. There are plenty of places to eat right on the beach. You can walk to the beach or take a golf cart that runs every 15min. On the beach are beach lounge chairs for you to use but are chain down so you can not move them. All are under trees and shade. We new this so we pack folding beach chairs with us from California so we can bring them to other beaches and lay in the sun. The bar was a fun place to hang out and meet people from Costa Rica and find out places to explore. The bartenders were fun and made sure we were part of the conversations at the bar even though not much english was spoken which was fine with us. While on the beach we met all sorts of tour guides and were very happy we met Herson, he was like a long lost friend. He can be trusted and knows all the different tours to go on. He will take you in his car and go with you, which is great since the roads are not mark very well and the places we went would have been hard to find. He is on the phone finding out were other tours are and made sure we were not there with the crowds. We went on a day trip that started out with a short hike to a waterfall, then a horseback ride to a starting place for another hike in the mountains to more waterfalls and hanging bridges. After that we went out for lunch were he call ahead of time and they were waiting for us. Then off to zip lining. Ended the day at a volcano were we took mud baths and soak in the hot springs. He also got us on a sunset tour which was amazing and only two other couples were onboard with us. This was a brand new catormoran which on high season takes out as many as 75 people. On that tour we went snorkeling, watch turtles mating , whales breaching, and much more. They cook us chicken , guacamole, and they always had a cold drink in your hand. So if you are on the beach ask for Herson and he will take good care of you , everyone on the beach knows everyone. Last but not least make sure you get a massage on the beach. There are a few places but make sure you go with the two ladies on the beach under the trees behind the lounge chairs, not the one from the hotel. These women are amazing and all fro $20 an hr. Yes you heard me right $20, they speak little english but you will have no problems communicating with them. They are very professional and well trained. We had three massages while we were there and with tip $60 for the both of us. The best deal in Costa Rica.
