The resort itself is nothing short of spectacular.
We ended up taking a shuttle (scheduled by Vanessa) from the airport for $180 each way. Not terribly expensive for a 2.5 hour trip and the driver took us to a supermarket which allowed us to stock up on groceries. You can also fly into Quepos from San Jose for approximately $63 per person each way (if your flight times correspond with the local airline schedule--ours did not).
Once at the resort, our concierge Bill greeted us and helped us get settled in. He was a pleasure to deal with. He gave us a tour of the property, pointed out wildlife, and during our stay drove us into town and to Manuel Antonio National Park. He was very responsive and helpful, but yet he respected our privacy. Thank you so much Bill!
The resort itself is nothing short of spectacular. It is perched high on the cliffs with amazing views of the ocean. The grounds are manicured on a daily basis and there is plenty of wildlife to observe. It did not have that "large" resort feel because the houses and bungalows are individual units, providing a feeling of seclusion. The beach is absolutely amazing and never felt crowded. We enjoyed the challenge of hiking to the beach every day--what a workout! They also provide a shuttle service to the beach, but we never used it. David was quick to set us up with towels, chairs, and an umbrella. The kayaks and snorkeling gear are also a huge plus.
There are several restaurants within walking distance of the resort. We ate at Barba Roja, Agua Azul, and Kapi Kapi. All three were great and moderately priced (Kapi Kapi is more high end). The resort does have food service at the family pool and it is sufficient if you are looking to grab a quick bite. We also had lunch at the beach early in our stay, but then it was closed due to its close proximity to the water (apparently some maritime infraction?). The good news is that they were still bringing food and drinks down to people from the pool facilities.
In conclusion, we had a wonderful time and will be bac
