Nice place. My room had a nice-sized balcony overlooking downtown so that was a bonus. Very clean and "open air" concept. That is, the floors were exposed to the outside on the street side of the hotel. It made you feel as if you were downtown because you can hear the sounds and see the sights from each floor. Nice...

This hotel was our pit stop on a long, leisurely drive from San Jose to the ferry terminal in Puntarenas. The room was an excellent value at $62 USD per night for a two bed suite, and also was equipped with air conditioning. Wifi is free and the signal was adequate in our corner room on the second floor.

The front desk staff is wonderful. They will help you with anything you need. The hotel is in good condition considering what you are paying. Rooms are clean and adequately maintained. Open common area was great for us to have a beer (purchased from down the street - LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION) and watch the April storms. Downsides? Light/noise from the... More

The staff is attentive and speaks English, Spanish, and German. The rooms are excellent and comfortable, the tropical setting is beautiful, and the food in the restaurant is delicious. I recommend this hotel for anyone staying in Atenas.

Great views of vulcon arenal from this hotel. Rooms are clean and they have laundry service! Only downside, be prepared for bus loads of american high school students! But the hotel instills a 10 pm quiet time so it wasnt as noisy as i thought it was going yo be.
