If you need a break from the hustle bustle, if you love nature, if you want to be away from it all while still within driving distance of nearby attractions, Clandestino is amazing!
What we loved:
STAFF: Diana, staff, and security officers were amazing. As soon as we stepped out of our car, Hiro the security guard showed us sloths, baby sea turtles, and other natural wonders of the area. A big deal for us being nature lovers! Staff was friendly, extremely accommodating, and went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. My fiancee surprised me with a marriage proposal and she was aided by the staff who helped create an extremely romantic evening to pop the question!
LGBTQ CONSIDERATIONS: Being two women, we always worry about prejudice when we travel but we felt nothing but love, support, and kindness here! We felt free to show affection and be ourselves. We also felt extremely safe, honestly safer than at home!
LOCATION: We rented a car which I highly recommend. Some days we lounged around the hotel, going to the beach, napping, swimming in the pool, having our meals. Other days, we drove to Quepos, Parrita, Jaco and other locations for various activities within an hours drive. Driving in Costa Rica was easier than driving in Denver, Colorado!
AMENITIES: Yes, fellow millennials, there is good wifi! Also, hot showers, area is super clean, food is delicious and reasonably priced, and there are TV's but we never turned it on.
