This was the best room of our entire trip. Spacious, modern, and clean. There were activities for those who wanted to get out and about, and a nice pool for relaxing. The restaurant was good. I really enjoyed laying out in the hammock and reading a good book.

The hotel was ok: rooms weren't very clean, and we did find little lizards in the room. No TV, and cheap/thin sheets on the beds. We did the 1-Day Tour (zipline, horseback riding, lunch, hot springs, etc.) which was the BEST in Costa Rica!
