Friend vacation

The hotel was clean and we did not like our first room. We were able to upgrade to a balcony room without issue, just paid more. That room was great with three doors leading to the outside and a view of the beach. Well worth the money. All inclusive was nice and the beach was steps away

Beautiful resort and beach!

Our first visit to Costa Rica so we were not sure exactly where to stay but knew we wanted to be in Guanacaste. We stayed 4 days and thoroughly enjoyed the experience! It was the perfect size resort and employees were all very friendly. We never felt it was overcrowded at the pool or beach. We didn't have a view from our room but we were not in the room long enough to need a view. Loved the spacious rooms... We had king size bed with pull out sofa and 4 bunk beds built into one wall with privacy curtains. Our 19 & 20 year olds loved this! Several restaurants which were all very good! Our rate included breakfast and it was very good! We especially loved the rice & beans each morning! We will definitely be planning a trip back. This is a very nice resort

Luxurious, safe & fun! Great for families!

From the moment you arrive, you feel that the staff genuinely want you to enjoy your stay! I love the new bracelet system for room access so you are no longer fussing around looking for your key! The rooms are VERY clean & comfortable w/ a refrigerator, steel safe, central air, baths w/ ventilation, & a great balcony no matter what floor or location in the hotel. The pool w/ swim up bar is gorgeous & fun! The sunsets are unbelievable! I noticed a play set for young children near the shallow pool. Lots of families come here. Very safe & relaxing atmosphere! This resort is right on the beach & what a gorgeous, clean & safe beach! I only wish I'd had more time to get a massage from one of the ladies at the beach entrance! Everyone was getting a massage while in their swimsuits & enjoying it! The food here is amazing & the bartenders/servers are really neat local people who you'll cherish instantly upon meeting them! They know how to make you smile! This was my second time staying here. I will definitely return! I love it here & it's worth every penny

Family Fun

We were originally going to stay in Tamarindo and due to a delay in booking, the travel agent suggested this resort. After taking a day trip to Taramindo, i was very happy that we chose to stay here. the Oceanview suite was spacious and clean and well suited for a family. Although the bathroom needs to be updated. The Resort, although smaller in size than some others, had all the amenities we needed. The resort and pool was clean. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The Spa was amazing and reasonably priced. Janie was terrific. We arrived on New Years Eve, there was a huge Gala celebration with a buffet that seemed endless. Delicious. Fireworks, champagne added to the fun. My only complaint was that it was across from a public beach and sadly the oceanview was interrupted by a Parked School Bus for a day and the beach was very crowded. Overall, we had a terrific time and enjoyed our sta

Amazing beach, average resort

We just returned from a 9 day stay at Margaritaville, with mixed feelings. First of all the good: the resort is steps away from a sandy beach, which is clean and simply gorgeous. It is perfect even for small kids and the staff at the hotel help out with brining chairs, drinks etc if needed. It was paradise, as they say. The hotel itself was quite pretty and nicely renovated. Our family rooms were spacious and clean, the pool was nice and in good conditions too. I liked the piña coladas they made very much too. Not so good was the attention of the hotel staff - we just didn't feel welcome! The waiters were very sloppy and inattentive, the pool guy told us I could not swim while the pool was formally open, the tour people gave us different tour prices depending on who I spoke to, and the scuba diving person in charge was impossible to speak to in person because 'too busy'. The scuba diving itself was actually amazing - and the rest of the team (mixed from US, France etc) was really professional. We saw some sharks and great underwater life, but the water was pretty cold and so a thicker suit would have helped. Overall recommendable, especially for the beach vicinity and hotel grounds. However, given the price during the high season, we would have appreciated a more sincere welcome and professional service
