Cuando hicimos las reservación en los filtros yo solicite habitacion con aire acondicionado, la habitación que nos dieron no tenia. Los colchones son terribles, tengo una condicion, que me produce dolor, en casa duermo bien, en este lugar los colchones o el sistema que implementan de somier de cemento, me dificulto mucho descansar; me levantaba varias veces por dolor. La ducha impresiona estar sucia, supongo que tambien tiene que ver con la pintura decolorada. Todos los cobros en el menu son en $ pero al pasarte el cobro a la tarjera lo hace en colones, lo cual tampoco me parece bien. El restaurante me parecio que era caro en relacion a lo que ofrecia, me compre un coctel, caro y que no estaba para nada rico. Sigo con la impresion de que le venden un servicio caro y para extranjeros. Lo bueno fue: la habitación estaba cerca del restaurante, la piscina y la playa, esto me parecio muy conveniente, aunque la playa no me parece que sea para familias por su alto oleaje y piedras, es mas para surfeadores. La pisicina genial, rica agua caliente en la ducha. Mi hijo se cayo y tuvo un accidente, tuvo una herida en la frente, tenian un buen kit de emergencias para socorrerlo, aunque nadie en ningun momento parecio importarle o preguntarme si el se encontraba bien. En general no regresaria a este hotel.

Grass huts were really unique and very clean. The a/c did not work that well and kept shutting off.
