The grounds are beautiful and the "bungalows" are modern and well done. They are not houses, but two, two bedroom apartments in each building. They are well furnished and comfortable, good security, a great layout with separate rooms for the toilet and the shower. Fully equipped kitchen, a/c, good wifi, comfortable beds, safe (no hairdryer). The main pool is lovely - the small pool near our apartment was always a bit murky. HOWEVER, this is NOT a place for tranquility! Much as they write their rules on a piece of paper, the constant noise does not serve for a relaxing holiday. Other guests drunkenly screaming at all hours of the night, dogs barking all night long, the moto/truck noises from the road and the grounds maintenance and construction beginning at 7 am and running constant all day long. Sadly, we actually were happy to leave this property.

It was the most ideal location. It was beautiful and quaint. there were geckos climbing inside...fine, but there were HUNDREDS of big orange ANTS at all times in every room you could not get away from them! air conditioning only in bedrooms, which were great. kitchen fantastic. balcony great. Netflix if you really wanted it. The pools on the other hand were murky and dirty. The maid did bring us a broom to sweep up the literal hundreds we were killing and then brought Raid, but i hated to use that inside. it didn't work anyways...

Five feisty middle age women friends stayed here for 2 nights. Gloria was incredibly helpful with her recommendations. We had a modern, spacious 2 bedroom apartment with a deck overlooking the pool. Short walk to beautiful beaches. Lots of places to eat and a grocery store within a short street walk busy with mopeds, buses, cars, bikes.

Room Tip: Try to get a lower unit, otherwise it's a very steep drive/climb.

This is a very new villa complex near enough to the main beach and an oasis retreat from the dusty main drag through the town. This isn't really a bungalow resort, the security guard at the gate turned us away at first as he said they are not bungalows. Good to have security and when we got in we were really pleasantly surprised at the quality of the whole place.

The grounds are very beautiful and stretch up a steep hill covered in the al,out brand new villas. There are whole houses and we stayed in one split into two apartments, whole floors one above the other each having two bedrooms bathroom kitchen living room and furnished terraces.

They are contemporary designed buildings and interiors. Very air, with large floor to ceiling windows and very nicely furnished. All only 4 months old when we stayed last week.

There is an very nice pool and the whole place is relaxing and calm. Our building even had its own pool, unfortunately not as inviting as the main immaculate pool as our neighbors, who had three of the immediate apartments, used it to clean off the after coming from the beach with their surfing clothes. The boys even diving in with their surf boards and others coming down to wash their sandy cloths and costumes.

That was not a major problem though as the beach was always the place we tended to head to. Great place, a very comfortable, contemporary oasis

The only other things to disturb us were monkeys in the trees outside but we all loved that. It was a great confirmation of how close you always are to the amazing natural paradise that is Costa Rica.
