Conclusion: very basic room, very clean but dated. Friendly staff. Aircon, hot showers, and comfy queen bed. Breakfast room with self catering cooking facilities available & excellent. 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

It was raining one night I turn on my bed lamp and get electrocuted. I rang the front office to explain what happen. I was told " when it rains sometime... 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

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 Although the staff were friendly our room was very outdated & although clean it was riddled with thousands of ants which were in out beds after my husband complaining we were given a can of fly spray to deal with...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
