The hosts are perfect, always ready to answer any question or help with any problem. They picked us up from the bus station several times free of charge. The location of of the hotel is perfect: far enough from the center to get some peace and quiet, but close enough to walk to the center and the natural park at... More

My colleagues and I made reservations for the 25th through the 28th of June. Prior to our check-in date, the country experienced immense flooding and mudslides. As a result of the weather, we were unable to safely travel to the Caribbean coast. The President of Costa Rica even declared a state of emergency. While working through booking.com to obtain a...

Dear Sir, We regret that the shuttle you had reserved for your transportation to Cabinas Nirvana failed to provide the service. Indeed, given the usual bad weather this time of the year in the National Park Braulio Carrillo, the road number 32 was closed to traffic for shorter or longer periods depending on the severity of existing damage. However, the... More

Host are execrable and not professional at all using black humor. They're just here to take your money and enjoy their holiday life. "They are not charity" as Mr.German said. Breakfast nearly impossible to eat (too salty) and 10$, definitely don't eat there. When leaving I asked politely "where are you from" and "how long have you been there" as... More

Our cabin ( 6 ) had a cosy double bed with good quality sheets and bedding, and the bathroom was a good size with a good shower that always had hot water. There is a small... More

We were there in Mid March. The management and staff were fantastic. The owners a husband and wife team from Austria, bend over backwards to make sure we were happy. The rooms and yard were immaculate. Everything worked, beds were comfortable, lots of hot water, great balcony etc. The best and I mean the best part was the wildlife that... More
