The service, rooms and food were typically exceptional JW Marriott! I was part of a Caravan Tour and I was very happy this stop was included in the tour of Costa Rica! The grounds and rooms were outstanding! The staff were extremely friendly and helpful! The food variety, freshness and quality at every meal was amazing! Very very relaxing visit!

Our party of 7 arrived late and tired to the best service with extra touches to sooth the stress of the trip. In the dark the property was really nice, but it took our breath away once we woke up and say everything. Fabulous rooms and incredible food at all three of the restaurants where we ate. One of our party didn't pack enough and they picked up her laundry and had it back in just over an hour. This was our last stop and other than a sunset sailing cruise we just relaxed and enjoyed this... Read more

This property is absolutely amazing! From check in to check out, the entire experience is great. The problem lied with NO warning on sand bugs or whatever insect is on the beach that attacks you as soon as you reach the water. I have bites up and down my legs as well as my arms! I have a brown skinned complexion with bright red bites on my legs. So frustrating as it puts a damper on our visit. Food and service at this property is definitely marriott standard! I just wish someone on property warn... Read more

We stayed six nights here recently. I read some other reviews that said this place won't upgrade you. As a gold member, I was hoping they'd upgrade us to an ocean view room, but despite being practically the only couple at the hotel for several days after we arrived, no such luck. The Service: Amazing. The room attendants were outstanding, everything spotless and organized every time we entered the room with plenty of towels, soap, and complimentary water bottles. I even left money out f... Read more

We loved staying here. What a beautiful, classy resort. Wonderful staff, gorgeous setting, the pool and grounds are very clean and well-kept. We would stay here again! The fruit plate was so incredible we ordered it on three separate days - along with their fantastic coffee. Our room was so beautiful and comfortable: we had a soaker tub along with a shower and were able to enjoy the beautiful patio with a view of the pool and the ocean. It wasn't noisy being next to the pool because they have a ... Read more

This property is typical for a JW Marriott. First class with a scenic property right on the beach. Pool is stunning, beach is pretty and property is manicured to perfection. You can tell this place is very well managed as staff remembers your name, stand aside when you walk by and give you nice words of welcome and always willing to answer questions and help. The food is typical of Marriott but not Costa Rica. Still great, and of course over priced, but not representative of the local culture. ... Read more

Going for a work trip in the off season, it was hard to know what to expect. The drive from Liberia airport is 90 minutes, so steel yourself for some boredom, as there's not much to look at. The hotel itself is not huge, but just the right size for a beach side resort. The hotel is very far from the town, in case you like to walk to town from the hotels. The staff is super responsive. My room safe was not working, but their responsiveness was super impressive. The infinity pool, at sunset, wit... Read more

This was a beautiful resort. The staff was friendly and the view was amazing and the resort itself was kind of secluded. The Hotel offered many excursions that were fairly priced. Pool was huge and always refreshing. There were also multiple restaurants at the resort, breakfast was my favorite.

Stayed here in early May with my family, it exceeded our expectations! Beyond beautiful and the service is top notch. Always things for the family to do and the food is great. Staff is so accommodating and treat everyone so well. The all inclusive is the way to go, and they don't cheat you in anyway. Loved our stay there and I highly recommend it.

Beautiful property. Great staff. Had a great time. The mansita beach is not good but avellanas and the beach club makes up for it. Also long ride to leave the property. Food also good. But pricey at the restaurants.

I was pleasantly surprise by how wonderful this entire resort was - the staff, from the front desk to the housekeepers to the waiters were all so friendly and helpful and made you feel right at home. Rooms were meticulously clean, with prompt daily service. The patio has a screen you can pull down so you can enjoy the outdoors with some privacy and some shade from the sun if you want to. Food is beyond delicious! While we were there the entire staff of Monster Energy Drinks was also there; with ... Read more

The Resort is beautiful just like the pictures. Other than our dealings with the resorts (non-affiliated) concierges team (which the resort failed to tell us until we received horrible service in which they denied assisting us). The Power was lost multiple times in one night and early morning during our stay. Overall the Resort is beautiful, clean and the location is great if you would like to shuttle back and forth to tamarindo. The food is great as well.

We stayed from June 3rd to the 11th and loved every moment of it. Starting with Henry greeting us and always helping us with bags and doors. Then Sergio at the front desk was always so friendly even after the millionth time I forget my keys in the room. He was always there smiling, remembered my name and my room number. David and Rafael in the concierge went above and beyond their duties for our request. We had a particular request to visit a specific school. They made the calls, interpreted , s... Read more

The property is gorgeous and relatively close to various beaches. The staff was accommodating, and the room was modern and spacious. The spa was fantastic and offered a variety of services. The pool is equally as lovely as the beach that is just a few steps away. A wonderful experience!
