This hotel is at a premium beach front location. It is also situated among ancient guanacaste trees. So, there is a whimsical atmosphere. However, the pluses stops at its location. The older section of the hotel is in disrepair. The newer part, where we stayed, consisted some spacious suites. But the suites were sparcely furnished. The grounds need more maintenance. The pool area is littered with bird droppings. As an all-inclusive hotel, the menu was limited. And even with the limited menu, most items were not available. During the week we stayed, the hotel hired a new chef and new staff. The friendly staff previous customers raved about were gone. The new staff were insincere and mostly did not speak English. So, it appears the hotel is taking a turn for the worse. We were there during a holiday week, and the hotel was not even half full. In comparison, the hotel next door were hopping. We tried to book a room there first, but they were fully comitted. One couldn't help get the feeling that Casa Conde is an old hotel that is at its last leg.
