We loved this resort. It is remote, located down some challenging gravel roads. We thought it was well worth the extra driving to get there. It is about an hour from Tamarindo and an hour and a half from Liberia (if you drive with zeal). The grounds are beautiful and it is located on an amazing, private black volcanic sand beach. The two story cottages were huge and nicely appointed. We primarily dined at the resort only for breakfast. The dinners were a bit pricey for what you get and all drinks from the bar were at least $7.00 each. Knowing this, we bought our own beer and wine in Liberia before getting to the resort. It is too bad for the resort as almost nobody ordered from the bar. I think if the drinks were even a bit more reasonable they would sell a lot more. We enjoyed trying the local restaurants for meals other than breakfast. We drank the water and were adventurous in dining though all our travels in Costa Rica. Nobody in our party developed illness during or after the trip. (although this is not likely true for everyone!) This is great resort to go to experience the real Costa Rica.
