We had been right here for six nights this month as a part of a Seniors Discovery Tour of Costa Rica.
A lot of issues had been good about this all inclusive resort. We do not drink a lot, so the free drinks weren’t a draw for us, nonetheless the drinks and bar snacks had been tremendous.
Meals at a buffet do grow to be repetitive, however we may at all times discover one thing to eat , with plenty of contemporary fruit and veggies . Meat and fish dishes on the buffet had been powerful.
Our room was clear with a really snug mattress , and good balcony with drying racks for moist garments and bathing fits, a bonus.
We had been within the 4000 block and located that the noise from the exhibits did not hassle us a lot, particularly with the balcony door shut.
The grounds are lovely and really properly stored. A lot of shade and wandering monkeys and iguanas throughout. The 6000 and space blocks appeared to have the monkeys within the bushes exterior their balconies.
The pool space was good with plenty of lounges within the shade. For essentially the most half you possibly can often discover a lounge, however some individuals nonetheless could not resist saving all of them day. There was little workers presence across the pool to discourage that observe. Bar service on the pool was spotty.
And, though there have been some designated smoking areas, individuals nonetheless tended to smoke across the pool and on their balconies.
The seaside space is non-public , nonetheless not good for youngsters or cautious swimmers. There’s a map on the grounds as you exit onto the seaside designating the place it’s protected to swim, however there is not a lot of a protected space. Between the rocks, the robust tides and crocodiles we stayed out of the water. Watching the surfers and the swimmers making an attempt the combat the tides close to the estuary was entertaining.
The stroll to the city of Tamarindo is about 20 to 30 minutes on a tough street with no sidewalk, nonetheless you may get a taxi for about $5.
We paid for Wi-Fi however for essentially the most half it was irritating, so most of our group gave up. It was sporadic anyplace besides within the foyer.
Our keep was pleasing regardless of these small challenges, however our greatest suggestion to administration is to coach your workers to be pleasant.
From the unsmiling entrance desk workers, to the keep away from eye contact grounds workers,
to the beleaguered restaurant workers, please do some workers coaching in being pleasant and not less than seem that you simply take pleasure in your job. That will make all of the distinction in critiques of your property. If the workers is pleasant, friends can overlook virtually any issues.
