This was our final stop in Costa Rica. We spent 4 nights here in early January. My husband and I were in D2 and my sister, husband, and two kids were in D4. We were upstairs and my sister was downstairs. Both rooms had beautiful views with large decks. There was a gap between the sliding door and the wall so we did get several visitors (bugs) in our room. Our building was across the street from the rest of the resort (closer to the ocean) so we had a hike to the pools, restaurant, etc. but it was very quiet with only 4 rooms in our building. The room was very comfortable and had beautiful views. The "kitchen" is very small. You get a full-sized fridge, a coffee maker, and a two burner hotplate. They did have a good assortment of pans, dishes, and utensils. We cooked breakfast and lunch in our rooms and went out for dinner.
They had three pools. The main one has nice views of the ocean. There is a smaller one that was very quiet. We saw a lot of animals there while cooling off in the water. The third pool is in the adults-only area. It was beautiful with an unobstructed view of the ocean/sunset. Unfortunately, every time we tried to go there, we were smoked out. This pool seems to have a lot of people who were chain smokers and there was nowhere to go to get away from it.
There was so much wildlife to see here. We saw more animals while at the resort than we did when we went to the Manuel Antonio National Park. We saw squirrel monkeys every evening near La Cantina BBQ, white throated capuchins all over the property, and howler monkeys one evening. We watched a sloth climbing around a tree, finding food to eat. We saw iguanas, butterflies, toucans, a Jesus Christ Lizard, and a green vine snake - all on the resort property. They have several walking trails that we enjoyed exploring. It was a great place to sit back and enjoy the nature around you.
We ate dinner one night at El Wagon and had great pizzas. The next night, we went back just before 5:00 so we could order off the lunch menu. We enjoyed the hamburgers, hot dogs, and wraps. Our final morning we had breakfast at Restaurant Anaconda. The food was good but the views were excellent. Where else can you eat and be entertained by monkeys while looking at the ocean.
