When visiting Herradura, Zephyr Palace is a great choice to consider. Guests indulge in spa services, then grab a bite to eat at the restaurant. There's an outdoor pool and a poolside bar, and rooms at this upscale hotel get the details right with bathrobes and slippers.

Cons: Hot climate but very good room air conditioning offered some relief.
Pros: The hotel seemed to have as many birds as nearby Carara Park! Our place (#11) was isolated and a bit of a walk (for us a good thing as it allowed us to sit on our porch and see birds).

Pros: Excellent location to spot Macaws, good food, friendly employees
Cons: Mattresses could be firmer. Refrigerator would help.

Pros: I liked that we could just walk to have breakfast, lunch and dinner with our baby and we didn't need to drive out the property.

Pros: The restaurant was very good

Pros: Although there was not a huge food selection the food was fresh and tasty. Poor wine selection of very low quality. The staff is very nice but not very well trained. The pool is great, also the ...
Cons: Nothing. Only a suggestion. Make an agreement with the Punta Leona resort to allow the Arenas guests use their shuttle busses and private road to access the Playa Blanca beach.
Pros: Overall clean but not worth what they charge
Cons: THE FOOD WAS DISGUSTING!!! BAD TASTE, POORLY COOKED AND LOOKED LIKE OLD LEFTOVER FOOD FROM PREVIOUS DAYS!!
Pros: Nice and clean hotel for a good price, given that is an all inclusive, it is a good value.
Cons: All rooms have view to the pool area with a balcony (2nd and 3rd floor) but it is a bit noisy (with loud music) during the day, so if you expect to relax and take a nap in your room, that hotel might ...
Pros: The food was pretty good most of the times, and since we went on weekdays there was not much people so we could really enjoy the beach, pool and good cokctails. All the staff (except one guy in the ...

Pros: The restaurant setting was superb. We did not sit around because we were on a birding trip but I envied those who were relaxing with a long drink while looking along the beautiful river. The staff ...
Cons: I did not enjoy having a wristband put on me to show I was a bb guest. Nobody checked it. This is not a major issue but I feel it could annoy some people considerably - anyone who had had surgery ...

Cons: Pools could have been heated.
