The location, in the outskirts of town is OK if you have a car. It was't a problem for us to drive into Tamarindo for dinner but felt parking was a bit of a pain. The rooms are spacious with very high ceilings and a private veranda which feels nicely secluded from the beach area if you need some alone... More

This hotel is on the main road in Huacas, with an excellent location to get quickly on the road & explore other beaches; the busy town of Tamarindo is still close by but you will not have the noise or fight the crowded & busy street. Rooms are spacious enough, clean toilets & a big & firm bed; the pool... More

Awesome little hotel!! The staff was extremely friendly and really tried to make our stay special. The biggest surprise is the pool, it is huge and the landscaping beautiful.

Great little hotel with an amazing pool and resturant. Wasn't sure what to expect but glad we decided to stay there. You can't beat a clean room, cold AC, hot water, WiFi and breakfast included all at a reasonal price.

We stayed five nights at this hotel the first of April 2015 and enjoyed it immensely. The bougainvillea all around the pool area was beautiful.

Once you figure out your location on the coast, the location is a HUSGE PLUS. The bathrooms are modern and while the rooms are spartan, they are clean and more than satisfactory. I wish we spent more time here than at the JW!

Came to support my partner who is taking a free dive course at Free Dive Costa Rica (which he says is fantastic). Left the expensive world of Nosara where we have a room waiting. Found this sweet comfortable place ....especially for the price. Pool area is lovely. Rooms are so so but for $80/night in high season worth every penny.... More
