Fodor's Review

Everything at this luxury resort, designed like an art-deco ocean liner incongruously dry-docked in Golfito's American Zone, is first class. Guests live like United Fruit Company kingpins amid gleaming hardwoods, polished brass, and stained glass. A magnificent art collection, commissioned for the hotel, lines corridors equipped, gangway-style, with white hand railings and portholes. The smallish standard rooms feel a little subterranean, but feature such first-class amenities

as fine linens, marble bathrooms, handsome furniture, well-designed closets, lots of mirrors and reading lights, and strong air-conditioning. Upper-level, deluxe state rooms and suites are brighter and more spacious, with large bathtubs and private balconies. The public areas are grand, filled with more art, sculpture and stylish leather furniture. Across the road from the main hotel lies a self-contained resort, with a magnificent pool, tennis and squash courts, and a spa. Service is flawlessly polished and friendly throughout the hotel. Included in the room rate is an excellent breakfast, served in the gloriously over-the-top main dining room. Friday-night disco and karaoke is popular with locals.
