Time Warp to a Hacienda

In college, my girlfriends and I had a strange obsession with the song, ‘The Time Warp’ from the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It sure reminded me of a time warp when it came time to visit the JW Marriott Guanacaste, a gorgeous remake of a traditional hacienda. The layout and the materials used to build it are spectacular and authentic. There is a crazy chic blend of modern and plush mixed with tradition, and you truly felt like you could be back in time… while standing in a gorgeous room with A/C and sipping a pina colada (of course!). The JW was one of the only properties we saw that isn’t an all-inclusive resort. There are several restaurants on-site to choose from, but beware the typical Marriott prices if you are hoping to catch a deal. The beach here is amazing, and the views of the water and beach are even more spectacular – especially when you glimpse them during a Costa Rican sunset! The nice thing is that while all beaches in Costa Rica are public, this property sits 4,800 hectares from the nearest public road – that means while you can be on the beach, good luck getting there if you are not a guest! Not only does it have a ‘private’ beach, but it also boasts the 2nd largest pool in Central America after one located in Panama. This property is beautiful and gives you an authentic feel without skimping. I think that it would be perfect for those with beaucoup bucks to spend and who seek a vacation that can really take them away from it all
