The hotel was quaint and nice. Staff were very friendly and spoke English well. The pool was a bit cool, but nice in the sun. A few stupid guests tried to reserve chairs by the pool, but it wasn't overly busy. Breakfast was toast and some fruit. My room was spacious and comfortable. Shower was nice and warm. Everything was... More

We stayed at the hotel for one night before we went home. It was a very positive experience and we got great value for money. Pleasant and helpful staff but the breakfast could have been better. Was hard to find some place to eat dinner nearby (we did not). Will definitely stay here again if we get the reason.

The hotel environment is warm and relax with nice decoration. The backyard is the mountainous area with the spectacular sunset scenery. You can enjoy birdwatching over there especially the woodpeckers. The room is clean. Services are excellent.

The hotel grounds were excellent! The decor was well thought out and authentic. The was a really nice pool area with cute swings and hammocks and beds outside that you could chill in.

If you want a warm and authentic Costa Rican hotel you won't find better than this. It is not an American style hotel thank goodness but if that's what you want go elsewhere, they are ubiquitous. The value for money can't be beat with clean rooms, lovely gardens and a pool and a good breakfast to start the day. The... More

We are more than glad that you had a great stay, you are right, if you would like a non-traditional and chain hotel then you found the right place where service is customized and tailored to every individual customer. You always can reserve dinner served usually from 7pm at the hotel terrace, we will be glad to make your dinner!... More
