The valet opens my door upon my arrival and greets me sincerely.
The woman at the front desk is actually friendly and upgrades me to an upper-floor corner room with an ocean view.
My room is quite large, and two of the walls consist of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Miraflores and the Pacific Ocean. I plop down on my cushy bed. Open a bottle of water. Assess the bath products. Pull open the curtains.
