The place was small, but clean and safe, which ultimately in a hotel is all you're generally after. However, despite having a confirmed reservation, it took nearly 45 minutes to be checked in, because they'd lost the emails etc. and they had to find them to ensure we'd paid a deposit, even though I had them on my phone. I'm... More

My boyfriend and I booked two nights at La Colina for the beginning of our post-Bar Exam vacation, hoping to unwind after a summer of studying and testing. Unfortunately, our experience at La Colina proved more stress inducing than stress alleviating. We arrived on a Tuesday evening and were greeted by the most disinterested hotel employee. He showed us to... More

After leaving Tres Banderas across the street due to unclean sheets, I was only going to stay somewhere that I could first inspect. I was shown a clean room with a fantastic view at the top of the hotel. We were also given a discount for paying in cash. The breakfast is excellent, and the staff was extremely helpful. I... More

We booked this last minute. From the outside it looks like a nice hotel. The room was average in size with a double bed, tv, wardrobe and a small shower room. There were bugs everywhere, even in my bags! It was clean. Breakfast was included, local food and fruit. There was a pool, looked dirty. The town is small and... More

This is, without a doubt, the worst hotel I've ever seen. It's dirty, the beds are covered in stains and there are so many bugs. I killed 10 bugs in my 5 minute hotel stay. I checked out of the hotel and stayed at Il Diria. There were bugs everywhere. I have no idea where any of these pictures of... More

We stayed here for 4 nights in April and loved it. The rooms were clean and neat, the oceanview rooms have a beautiful view. In the mornings you can see monkeys go by and also saw a tucan. You can get to the beach and national park in 5 min on the bus which stops very close to the hotel,... More

Found a cockroach in the room and family next door found a huge spider in the bathroom. No ironing board, no hair dryer, cheap towels, no wash cloths, and a/c in our room turned off and on all night. Tiny bathroom and small sink. The good is free good breakfast and thats about it.
