We arrived in a thunderstorm at night and were only pleased with the hotel, however on opening the curtains the next morning we were awoken with the best view ever. We were in room 52 and had a corner balcony with views of sunrise (which we made most days), tropical rainforest and Pacific Ocean.
Sunset from the pool bar was a must.
The breakfast was very good with fresh fruit, hot food and made-to-order eggs and pancakes.
Lots of good places within walking distance for food, Emillio's Cafe, Aqua Azul etc.
Easy access to beach with shuttle bus 4 times a day (you can walk it - 20 minutes down/ 30 minutes back!)
Manuel Antoni Park 5mins drive away. Nice drive along the coast to Dominical, Uvita and Hacienda Baru Nationa Park.
Once again must mention the excellent views - no other hotel in the area can boast such a magnificent location.
