The room was okay, but housekeeping didn't come the first night.
The buffet was sub par and although the restaurant said they opened at 6:30am, at 7:15am, they were still putting food out. You are "supposed" to get 1 dinner at their fancy restaurant for every 2 nights, they only gave us one voucher even though we were there for 5 nights. You then have to make reservations with the buffet restaurant on the morning that you want to go for dinner. When we went at 7:15am to breakfast and confirm dinner, they already said they were sold out for that night. We went by the restaurant on multiple days and all the tables were empty.
Not worth the money spent and you may also want to stay in Playa del Coco or Arenal for better scenery.
Finally, the shuttle service around the resort is non-existent. We called to have someone pick up and they never came. We never relied on them again.
Wifi is only available at the main hotel building in the reception area, not even 50 feet away or in your room!!!!
