Just got back on Sunday from beautiful Costa Rica. This resort and the staff were fantastic and made it a great vacation. It is one of the smallest resorts I have ever stayed at but was big enough for the amount of people that stayed there. Only 1 pool, which I think could use some improving (no swim up bar) but there was always a chair to sit down and staff walking around asking if you wanted a drink (don't get that at the larger resorts). It's an adult only (no screaming children) so it was nice and quiet, until they broke out the pool activities which were always fun to join and everyone is welcome. One thing I didn't like about the resort was there was no food once the buffet closed so the bars were open until 2 am or later but there was no snacks (free or for purchase) which made for some pretty bad mornings. The snack bar should be open as long as the bars are.
If your on the beach its worth stopping and looking at the handmade trinkets, they will make you anything you want within an hour. Also, get a massage those women are great at what they do and there's nothing better than hearing the waves crash, natural sounds of the wildlife and the beautiful spanish language.
While we were there, it was a good mix of young and old but everyone enjoyed themselves and partied together. It was a blast. Thanks for the memories.
