A comfortable motel relatively close to the town. Needs a face lift and repairs to the pool. A communial kitchen available but the bbqs are only equivalent to a camp fire grill. A restaurant on site but only open at the end of the week.

We were returning to the Costa Rica with a return customer deal. The motel is rather tired but the rooms are clean and tidy and the facilities all work. We had room 11 which had good parking, and was a very quiet room. The air conditioner and fan and fridge all worked well and the bed was comfy. The only... More

I'd stayed here before. But this visit in November 2014 was terrible! If I had only thought to look at the neon sign, or grounds and focused on the run down dis repair, I may have realised what I'd let myself in for! I was a single traveller, but on clearing at checking why my credit card has been billed... More

We recently stayed at the motel for 4 nights over last weekend & was very disappointed to say the least. Although the staff were friendly our room was very outdated & although clean it was riddled with thousands of ants which were in out beds after my husband complaining we were given a can of fly spray to deal with...

We arrived in xmas day. The WHOLE town was closed but the lady at reception organised us a xmas dinner of prawns, ham, turkey and salad as well as fruit and dessert at $30 p/hd. We certainly weren't complaining. We stayed in room 8 which included a long parking spot which was handy for the trailer and bike....the room was... More

we came home today after spending 4 nights and 5 days at this Motel, I had read bad reviews about it but found none of them true in our case, the only thing is you don't have any cooking facilities except for a microwave in the rooms, so basically have to eat out. The staff is very nice and help... More

This motel is quite large and covers a lot of area. It includes a tennis court and swimming pool. The owners are friendly and helpful and presented us with a complimentary bottle of wine on check-in (we were walk-ins, not sure if this is standard for all customers). The room was quite dated in terms of curtains, carpets and bathroom... More
