The room was very basic , yet the price was quite high. The restaurant attached to the hotel was advertising lobster and after ordering it we were very disappointed - most of the dish was cheese - we had to drive everywhere, there was nothing within walking distance.

This motel is very clean and inexpensive, however desperately needs a make ohver as the tacky central American theme does not suit the area. The garden area out the back is great and inviting but the driveway needs a good weeding.

Spent a few days in this very comfortable motel. Extremely warm reception on arrival couldn't have been more helpful. Staff took the time to explain the wonderful things the area has to offer. We will definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for work and was surprised at how nice the rooms were. The theme of the motel is maintained in both the rooms and the grounds, which was a nice change from the usual, even though I really don't like orange. The only thing about the rooms was the bathroom was a bit dated. The rest of the... More

We stayed one night and had a room with a sofa on which to sit. The room was clean, bed comfortable, and staff friendly. Small bathroom. We thought it rather overpriced. The restaurant was closed for refurbishment.

Great for Dive fraternity. Our special deal of $120 for two nights, not serviced daily price okay. Reg price $140 per night - would not pay that. Deal was for chocolates and wine... More

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
