I stayed in the second floor beachfront unit for 4 days and sooooo wish I could have stayed longer. What an amazing place, it was truly paradise! The rental rate was a great price for being right on the beach, and the furnishings in the unit were all high end and meticulously cared for. The beach was a soft black sand beach called Playa Hermosa, easily the most beautiful beach I saw while in Costa Rica. Falling asleep to...and then waking up to...the sound of Playa Hermosa's waves was so relaxing. I don't surf, but watching the surfers on what I'm told are some of Costa Rica's best surf waves from my balcony was mesmerizing.
The resort manager Jeff was attentive and helpful in making arrangements to go to the nearby Manuel Antonio National Park to see the white-faced monkeys, sloths, etc. We also rented wave runners, which were a blast! Playa Hermosa was the perfect mix of a quiet beach away from the crowds, but only about a 5 minute drive to Jaco which had terrific restaurants and fun clubs late-night. I can't wait to go back!
