This is a lovely hotel located just outside of town. It has a spectacular view of the Nicoya Peninsula at sunset.
The staff at the hotel were excellent. Our room was beautiful (we did book an upgraded top floor room for the view). Spacious and very clean. Beautiful glass shower and large soaker tub!
The restaurant serves the most amazing cocktails and the service was spectacular. They have "Tico Time" (their version of happy hour) which offers one free appetizer with each drink you order.
We booked a private night tour with the hotel. It wound up being just the two of us and our guide Jorge. I would HIGHLY recommend this tour. Jorge can spot animals anywhere and he is extremely knowledgable. We even stopped at a park in town on the way back because he had heard a sloth was spotted there earlier in the day. Sure enough, there was a sloth!
This hotel is certainly higher end and costs a bit more but I would definitely say, it was worth it!
