I came as a solo traveler. They do have some great drink options and a great pool HOWEVER the resort/hotel is so small so dinner is outside with flying roaches landing everywhere including your food. The room is old and complex to lock as you get a physical key.. The spa apparently was closed the day I came? Strange because they promoted it being open everyday.. To access the room you are walking through the jungle with barely a pathway. At night time this can be very problematic.. While eating dinner to my surprise I was told "all staff leave at 10pm" I was OUTRAGED to know in another country they think its okay to not have not one staff avaliable just in case for any needs. They have one security guard who stays during this time although he knows no English and there is no way to contact him as there is no phone in the room .. As soon as I found out this information I demanded to leave as I felt extremely uncomfortable & they were really no help to making this happened. ... Once I started to make my own phone calls and such they then stepped in, I explained I would pay everything before I left and there response "I know you will pay, you have to pay".... Was that a threat? Disgusting. I called my bank company as they charged me $1500 rather than the agreed $400 a night and in which I never even stayed the whole night.. There money hungry & I would recommend to be careful. The rooms are trash, extremely old and way to many bugs to count INSIDE the room. I would recommend Four Seasons or Makanda Hotel if you want a good hotel in Costa Rica.
