This place is nice for a one night stay as you come into costa rica/ leave. The grounds are pretty, and the breakfast is ok. We also had dinner at the on-site restaurant and it was pretty tasty. The pool seemed nice, though we didn't have time to go in. The owner was friendly and took a lot of time... More

We stopped here after landing on the first day of our trip. Rooms are very nice and the restaurant was excellent. We lost our luggage and the staff was very helpful in finding out where it was. The grounds and pool are beautiful and meticulously maintained. A bit tricky to find but worth it once you get there. Well worth... More

The perfect place to start or end your CR journey if flying into/out of SJO. The owners and staff are excellent at handling correspondence and accommodating requests. We were a family of 7 and our entire family stayed here both at the beginning and end of our journey. On Dec 19, 2014 we had room 8 which was ideal for... More

I note that you are actually from the same city as me! Small world! No problem with the bed moving assistance. We have a number of extra high quality beds for that purpose and most of our cabins can, in a pinch take one extra person. I am glad that you enjoyed all our services so much and that we... More

The sparkling clean pool, meticulously maintained grounds, and excellent complimentary breakfast make this hotel worth a visit. Its close proximity to the airport will give you a soft place to land, either before or after touring Costa Rica. We spoke with several European visitors who were staying a few days just to pleasantly recover from jetlag. The shuttle is not... More

We thank you for your review. We note that you indicate that your room had poor quality towels and that you had difficulty with the shower. We are tracking this down with our cleaning staff as we have replaced virtually all our towels and bedding at the hotel in the past two months. So if you received an older set,... More

This is a charming small hotel about a 20 minute cab ride from the airport. The grounds and pool are lovely, and the rooms are small but nicely appointed. Terrific shower! The dinner menu was quite appealing, and we both enjoyed our choices, along with a nice bottle of wine. The complimentary breakfast included some wonderful banana bread, as well... More

Thank you for the very positive review! We are glad that you found your experience so satisfying and that everything was found as advertized. Though we do offer a partially subsidized private transfer service which is cheaper than local taxis, we do not provide a free shuttle as we wish to keep our room rates as low as possible and...

Edwin & Damian were excellent hosts and made us feel welcome, comfortable, and safe. We enjoyed hearing Damian's stories of life in Costa Rica. The cook was ill our one night here, but fortunately, there is a restaurant within walking distance (or they will deliver). There is also a nearby convenience store. The rooms are quaint, and breakfast was good.... More

Hello! We will notify the staff indicated about your kind comments!

Our family took our first trip to Costa Rica this November (2014). There were nine of us, and we used the 2 family suites and a triple room. All the rooms were clean and neat; the family suites are spacious. My 79 and 81 year old parents had no difficulty navigating the hotel grounds. The owners were helpful before we... More

Great place for your first or last night in Costa Rica. Nice landscaped grounds. Our room was nicely decorated,inside and out. Friendly service. Secure parking. We walked a couple blocks to find dinner and truly enjoyed ourselves. The pool is large, although a bit cool,like many pools in Costa Rica. We were leaving too early for breakfast, but they supplied... More

We appreciate your review of our hotel! Thank you. It was our pleasure to provide you with our "to go" bag for breakfast. There is so little fit to eat at the airport that having something to take is, in our opinion, rather important! The pool is, in November a little chilly. Of course this is personal preference however, the... More

Thank you for your review! We are glad that you found our new superior rooms to be comfortable!
