My second time staying at this resort. You can chose from the large houses for large groups or the smaller apartments / studios. The vision is to develop a small town where all can walk to the beach, 2 restaurants, beach club. You can chose to stay at the beach (which has lots of natural shaded spots), in the many hammocks or rocking chairs, or by the infinity pool sipping amazing margaritas. Or you can go off and do many activities - best knows for its 20+ miles of mountain biking, snorkeling right off the beach, paddle boarding, kayaking, etc. All equipment provided by the local store Pura Vida for a fee (which makes the best coffees and gelato). Amazing place. I'll be back!

Room Tip: If staying in smaller houses, make sure it's above ground and has lots of light. Some are on dar...

Only 30 minutes from downtown san jose and overlooking the valley this mansion house converted in to a hotel is a must see. Well maintened house and gardens with a beautiful view of the city from the top, is a place to enjoy and relax.. Staff very helpful and friendly also offers good home cooking. Beware that this is adults only hotel where there's one of the pools for nudity,i found out at check in but nobody bothers the others..we'll back anytime..

When we get there,
Because it was hard to get there, they request the payment prior anything, then they told us that the hotel was a partial nudist hotel, then we get to our room that all over was really bad cleaning, and had no A/C, when we complains they try to upgrade us to the honey moon suit the one that part of the view was the nudist / swinger pool, I had no problem with that style of living, but I not shared and it will be nice if the hotel staff let you know it before payment because when we request the refund they say NO at all, it was a really sad and not romantic experience.
