When you arrive, the faded signs might make you think that you have arrived at the wrong place or that you made a mistake in booking here. BUT DO NOT WORRY. Just enter the property through the gate to the left of the parking lot. It is beautiful!! There is a main pool with a tree mosaic and an adjoining... More

We are a retired couple of modest means, so the price was definitely affordable (+) We arrived in a rental SUV from San Jose and drove past the entrance to the hotel. It seems a local lawyer had erected his street sign partially obstructing the hotel's entrance sign, so we eventually figured it out (-) The hotel's parking lot was... More

We stayed four nights here and were very happy with it. It's not in the centre of Flamingo but close by the beach if you don't mind a 10 min. walk. Nextdoors is a great Italian restaurant. It is a bit far away of everything but if you're seeking a nice and cheap option for only a couple of nights... More

We spent a little more than a week here. I would recommend you to have a car (to be able to explore more) but if you don't have on ether is a small supermarket next door, breakfast included in the rate (rice, beans, scrambled eggs, toast, juice, coffee and fruits) and there is a restaurant next to the hotel. It... More

We stayed there for 4 nights and had a really good time! The room was big and we had huge beds. Enough space for clothing and backpacks/luggage. The pool was refreshing and Anna helped us a lot with finding a Hotel for our next stay. Probably a bit difficult if you don't speak spanish at all, but I think Anna... More

Stayed here based on the trip advisor reviews. The receptionist spoke no English, the bathrooms didn't have shampoo and the shower barely worked, and the mattress were very old and uncomfortable. The final straw was the AC was impossible to adjust and it was either way too hot or way too cold in the room, which might have been tolerable... More

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely, relatively simple property. Only 12 rooms situated around the pool. Anna, and her husband look after the place and are Anna is very friendly and helpful. One bag did not arrive in CR with us. Anna took it upon herself to connect with the United Airlines rep. to double check if would be... More

Behind the entrance gate was a welcomed surprise. Green grass, immaculate rooms, office, and pool as well as a staff that made our 5 night stay not only comfortable but so memorable. Freshly cooked beans, rice and eggs along with toast, coffee and fresh fruit every morning was part of the nightly rate. A convenience store, bank, and the beach... More

Owners are speaking spanish and only a bit english. But you will get along with them quite good. Nice to stay there. Beach restaurants were nice... More

The hosts were very friendly but they do not speak English very well and we don't speak Spanish, but this wasn't really a problem. The rooms were big but the beds a bit hard to be honest. Supermarket is next door and the "nice" beaches a 5min drive away!
