!!!!!!Don't stay!!!!!!!!! The rooms are old and smell, this property needs to be renovated. Also you can't walk around the resort must wait at the bus stop for pick up. The property is built on the side of a mountain and lots of hills and walking. All activities are down by the pool/beach area, must walk down 38 steps to reach the pool/food/spa and beach. You must walk back up the steps to get the to the bus stop. If relaxation is what you want this is not it. Lots of walking just for a cup of coffee. During breakfast you must fight with the birds for food. The birds will eat off your plate and the buffert. Also what is not eaten by the guest the night before, they re-heat and serve it for breakfast (beans/rice). Also if a beach with white sand is what you're looking for this place is not it. The beach has black sand and the water disappears until the late afternoon. The beach smells due to dead fish washing up on the beach. The beach is nasty! The drinks are watered down and all a few drinks are all inclusives, if you want top shelf must pay extra. Also the speciality resturants are not open on Sundays. Good luck with getting a reservation it seems they only give a few reservations each hour. Also on the weekend the property is very crowd due to locals checking in on friday-Sundays, and the local kids stay free. Very disappointed with the resort will not stay here ever again!!!!!!!!!

My wife and I enjoyed this all inclusive hillside resort. Everyone was welcoming and accommodating and we do not speak spanish!!! It is truly an escape to be in this secluded cove. There are lots of steps so I do not think it is accessible but otherwise it was never a problem and its not like you are constantly going up and down them. There is a shuttle that runs frequently to bring you everywhere else. We were able to only use us dollars but remember change is given in colones. Tips were included but we always bring ones to tip for great service. This is a fantastic 3 star!!! Wonderful on a budget just nothing fancy (no room service if that's what your looking for). The buffet is in an open-air restaurant where birds try to take the food during breakfast and lunch but the staff is constantly trying to avert them. But your in paradise!!! Bring some bananas from breakfast to the beach because when the monkeys cross over they will eat them right from your hand. Ziplining from the lobby tour (Martin-to papagayo) and from the poolside tour (Kim-to villas del sol hotel) were both awesome. One near the ocean up the side of the hill and the other over the river and in the middle of hills. Other guests really enjoyed the Arenal volcano tour.

The service was excellent from start to finish. We took advantage of some of the excursions offered by the hotel..(very reasonable prices) and were extremely satisfied. We went on a fishing trip, caught a Red Snapper and the chef prepared a feast..excellent! We did the ATV/Zip Line and were also very happy with those trips. Service by all Hotel Staff from the front desk to housekeeping were above expectations. Would recommend highly to everyone!

We went in expecting the worst after reading the reviews. We were pleasantly surprised upon arrival. Check in was a breeze, the bars were fabulous , and the friendly hard working staff made this a good choice for our stay. Our biggest surprise was that the dry season means nothing green in site by March.
