There are waiters around the pool deck, but if you went to the bar, it was sometimes difficult to get served. We actually had one server come to our patio and suggested us getting a bucket of beer. Very thoughtful and worked out great!!

We ate lunch at this poolside grill. The food was very good and we had a fantastic Mango Salad with Papaya Seed Dressing. Wonderful.

A comfortable pool side bar & bistro off to one side and covered from the elements. A large choice of healthy options and the usual burgers and (delicious) fries. Take your time, and leave the towel behind. No rush (but the waitstaff follow this adage,...More

We had a late dinner here based on the menu and location. The outside seating and poolside views are very nice. The food, service and prices are not quite up to the steakhouse at the JWMarriott but very good food and value. The lamb chops...More

Had a great meal and service was superb. Had the veal osobucco ( spelling?) and was delicious. The service was fantastic and the waiter, like all the waiters we had at the JW Marriott, were excellent!

The food was delicious, had no complaints. I did notice that the pool side prices were higher than room service, which is exactly opposite of my normal experience with resorts. Not sure if this was a labor issue, or something else, but the same food...More

I would have had all my lunches and dinners here during our stay at the Marriott Guanacaste. Service is exceptional, friendly staff and very good Italian dishes for dinner. Maybe they can be more creative for lunch dishes, but all our selections were well prepared.

Great food and service. Had a burger and a few other things. Never did the pasta at night only lunch service

Had lunch here most days. Beautiful setting. Food kind of unexpected, like the tacos had black bean mash (yuk) and they had both a fried and soft shell tortilla so I had no choice. Would have preferred normal soft shell flour or corn.

In general, a good budgeting number would be to expect to pay $20-$30 (USD) per person per meal (breakfast/lunch) and slightly more for supper at the steakhouse or the seafood place down the beach. Of course, your mileage... More
