We were there in the down season, so the place was pretty deserted and we basically had the hotel/beach to ourselves. Rooms were nice & clean. Great A/C. Beach was nice - black sand, which was cool, but the water was really murky because of it, so you'd come out with the suit full of black sand inside & out.... More

This hotel is a great hotel but 30 minutes and a $35 dollar cab ride from Tamarindo which is the very very tourist part of the Guanacoste area. This hotel is semi-remote but the area is beautiful.
