You can even have animals arround if u are lucky because it is such a nature place. The room was clean, the hammock allows you to have... More

According to trip advisor, this place gets great reviews... So when we arrived we were quite shocked at what we found. First off, we are have travelled by rental car all over Costa Rica and found this place extremely hard to locate as there is very little signage and it is in a weird location that doesn't look like a...

It is difficult to let this kind of review go un-answered. I understand that the reviewer did not like the room (although it was recently remodeled). Management immediately refunded their money. So what is the source of this mean-spirited review? The reviewer spent the first 20% of the letter complaining about not being able to find the Hotel. We’ve been... More

On my second trip to this area I wanted to stay where I could have a wonderful view of the Pacific. This condo complex definitely fits the bill with amazing views that vary with the location of the condo. Choose your condo carefully, as they are individually owned and in various states of repair and renovation. I stayed in a... More

Based on the photo, we thought we were to stay in a reasonably nice place. BUT.....the hotel is located between two loud busy streets with traffic and people passing at all hours. The room smelled like it had been closed for months with that damp, suffocating scent. We could not stay even one night.....moving to Villas Nicholas just down the... More

I rented a condo from private owners and should note that the units here are all owned individually. I stayed in a fabulous villa with an amazing ocean view and gorgeous high ceilings. It was the perfect, most awesome place imaginable. I had a great kitchen, and the outdoor balcony also had a breakfast table and a hammock where I... More

One could pay 5 x more for this view! The rooms are large and comfortable. The restaurant next door is excellent! Excellent location.

Our room was number 5 where we had a fantastic view. The accommodation was comfortable, clean, spacious and well equipped. The balcony was a real bonus although the close proximity of the adjacent resturant did disturb the special ambience when it was busy. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Swimming in the pool surrounded by monkeys and a sloth... More
