After exiting arrivals at the airport and this being my first time to Costa Rica, we were met by the hotel's shuttle driver (nb. This was pre-arranged prior to arrival - thanks Vanessa!). Driver was polite and informative. Came off a motorway and down a side road parallel to the motorway/freeway then turned into the grounds of the hotel. The actually hotel is a distance from the motorway/freeway so you won't get disturbed by the traffic. Hotel was well presented and staff were welcoming. Check-in was swift and smooth especially with the 7 of us. Rooms were spacious. Rooms we booked were twin double beds, yet there still A LOT of space aroud the beds. Rooms were also clean. Swimming pool was clean. The breakfast buffet had a huge selection but on the pricey side. There was a small casino within the hotel where drinks were provided. Near the reception/lobby, there is a quiet area that has a courtyard; it's like bringing the outside in. Just outside the steps of the hotel, less than a minute walk is a small grocery store so you can get your cheap snacks/refreshments. Further walking, about 10 minutes, across the bridge over the motorway/freeway, is a selection of restaurant. There is also a souvenier shop about a 2 minute walk from the hotel grounds. Hotel is near the airport but a distance from downtown. Luckily we knew a local who took around downtown. Arranged White-water Rafting through the hotel.
