We like this place so much, we have been here 3 different times since our stay for 3 months in Costa Rica. The family who owns it are wonderful and service is amazing. Amenities include a pool and the hotel is just steps away from the beach with good waves for beginning surfers or for a lovely stroll on the beach. Sunsets are breath taking here as well.

Heather and Kelly here! We started our day with another fabulous breakfast (with fresh mangos picked by Alicia and Allyson) and then rancho time! Our group did a great job leading the kids with some wonderful songs and bible stories in Spanish. Pete shared his testimony with everyone and did a fantastic job!! We then broke into three groups, Alicia and Allyson helping with the kids, Joe, Pete and Jerry doing their ...
... to explore the festival, which wasn't really set up at all... bulldozers, stages not set up, and not really anywhere to chill, and worst of all, absolutely nowhere to sit! it was soooo hot and there wasn't much shade, so we just sat on the ground and decided to get drunk. that turned into a really fun night, a very talented dj i know from home happened to be playing on wednesday night, so we grooved to his set for hours, had a great time, and then were in bed before 1. ...
