Whilst the hotel is on the main road just outside Quepos, so not ideal without a car, it is a clean modern hotel and attractively designed. Rooms are very spacious. We would recommend staying here. One sadness is the Z restaurant next door - one of the best in Costa Rica and not overpriced - is due to move to... More

What a really lovely place. How can a Hotel on a busy road be so quiet. The rooms have a real luxury feel and very quiet and efficient air con. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Although a little away from beach and National Park, which actually work to its advantage, the local busses are very cheap and every... More

Loved it. Huge room, huge shower, kitchenette and very clean. Who could ask for anything more? Even tho right on highway, room was quiet and road noise was not a problem. There are bigger, fancier places in the area but if you're in for a short stay you can't beat this place.

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the suite we had was very nice and huge. By far the biggest hotel room we have ever stayed in. Huge shower, clean, and comfortable beds. Nice courtyard area in back of hotel. The cons are that it is right on highway which is a poor road for walking on (no... More

Our stay here was booked on line. We'd never stayed here before. What an utterly charming place. Jonathan who runs the reception in the afternoons and evenings was one the nicest people we've ever met. And we travel a lot. A most gracious and attentive host. Our suite # 6 was beautiful. Very spacious and very well appointed. The entire... More

This hotel is super trendy, colourful with mosaic. Room is sooo large, even the shower is spacious, also there is a balcony. The staff is very friendly and helpful, my regards to the guy with the glasses, best host ever! Nice gift shop, bought a colourful mask there. Right next door there is a great restaurant "Z", excellent fish dishes,... More

This hotel had extremely nice and large rooms that were well appointed with anything you would need. The lobby area is in a gift shop, which was a little odd, but the staff was nice and helpful. The breakfast area is quasi-outdoors and not air conditioned, which can be uncomfortable with the hot and humid local climate. You can easily... More
