The hotel is set on a sloping piece of land; between the lush vegetation there is only enough space to go to the villas - no property to take a walk on at all. Each square villa is divided diagonally into two rooms. On the lower side of the villa is the door (heavy, black) and on the upper side is a window. However, the window needs to be closed all the time and blinds lowered because people would see inside as they were passing by to get to their rooms. Anyhow, the hill is too steep there to have any view at all. It feels like you are inside a hole. Air conditioning had to be on all the time, otherwise it would be too hot and humid but the power kept switching on and off as there was construction going on in the whole area, so frequently, we woke up all sweaty and had to switch the air-conditioning back on. We both came home with a cold from it. The rooms were clean, the maids created beautiful shapes with towels for us every day, the receptionist was most helpful, but the restaurant was overpriced and the lack of safe boxes in the rooms was very inconvenient – having to run to the office every time you were coming or going to keep your belongings safe. They advertise a beach that you can walk to – you can but it is a really good hike, about 25 – 30 minutes up and down steep hills; the beach is too rocky to be worth the effort. The hotel is about 3 Km from Quepos which seems like a reasonable distance to walk but the road is too curvy and sloped, combined with the driving style in Costa Rica and no sidewalks, it is just too dangerous, especially in the evening. Overall, the hotel was a disappointment. We will not go back.
