This family-friendly resort is set in well-maintained grounds overlooking the jungle and the Pacific coast. Some of the design touches are a little quirky, but the atmosphere at the hotel is refreshingly informal and there is a good range of facilities including a small cinema, two swimming pools (one adults-only), a swim-up bar and a spa. Views from the hotel’s formal restaurant and wine bar are not to be missed, but there is also a more informal restaurant located by the swimming pool. Claro Que Si, the hotel restaurant, offers good Costa Rican and international food, specialising in Caribbean seafood, whilst Rico Tico offers simpler Costa Rican meals and Tex-Mex. The hotel also runs a private wildlife refuge opposite the hotel where you can see a wide variety of butterflies, amphibians and reptiles.
