Feedback from Travelers
We were skeptical about such a large facility. However, this was indeed the highlight of our trip. The rooms are very large and clean. Even though there was no air-conditioning, it was super comfortable. The restaurant was nice and the quality of food was good.
I was very impressed with this hotel. Every room has a great view and we were in unit 8. We got a great view of the sunset every evening. There was lovely birds, animals and very helpful staff. The restaurants are very good and breakfast buffet is ample and tasty. The room is quite spacious and very good bathroom. The rooms have a small veranda kind of space at the entrance that allows for luggage to be stored and so the sleeping area becomes very spacious. I spotted a Quetzal in one of the property trails ! Highly recommend this place.
Great hotel, wonderful staff. The shuttle to get to and from our room down to the reception area at first was a little bothersome. You had to leave about 5-10 extra minutes if you were on a time schedule. But when you see the views and the sunsets and the property, it is all worth it. We also were able to walk into town for dinner.
