Aron at the front desk was incredibly kind. My friend and I had to make a last minute reservation at Pacific Paradise Resort because our original location was "accidentally overbooked," and I think we definitely got a better deal than our original location. The price is a little higher than we were looking to spend, but having come from an... More

Upon our arrival we found a very old furnished room (which was not a problem), with dirty yellow toilet (I wish I took a picture) that wouldn't flush, and the aircon was not working. The receptionist, who also showed us our room did not speak a single word in English. We immediately checked out (a working toilet and aircon is... More

Hi If we do not meet your expectations we're sorry, likewise was offered another room, as an air conditioner may stop working at any time and anywhere in the world, our furniture is not at all old, this hotel is founded in 2001 and two years ago the furniture was changed, however the pictures of our establishment speak for themselves....

The room was ok, not fancy but clean. The pool was really nice and they prepared breakfast for us. The owner and staff were very nice. The young man who checked us in was exceptionally helpful. I did notice they rent out pool services to Outside locals. It seems to work Well.

We had a comfortable room for our one nights stay, with A/C, microwave, TV with cable and refrigerator. The bathroom was nice-sized with a large glass shower and good hot water. The bed was comfortable, though not up to luxury hotel standards. The fellow who ran the desk was most accommodating and helpful. He was happy to let us leave... More

We love this place! It is clean and beautiful and the staff couldn't be friendlier. Jason at the bar was a really wonderful fellow - fun, helpful and kind. The food was delicious and the premises is simply impeccable! The blue-tiled pool with waterfall was so pretty and relaxing. The property couldn't be lovelier. If there was an option for... More

This hotel has a great swimming pool. The rooms are finely appointed, with some of the nicest hotel furnishings I've seen in a Costa Rican hotel. We paid $104 for me, my wife, and three kids to share a room. When we got there, there was water in our room. Later, the water went out. I didn't say anything since... More

Grounds are nice, it's out aways from town, so bus or cab or a long, long walk. She's been around for many years and it has gotten better over time. Casino has been reinvigorated. Working girls on the premises but not oppressive. Rooms are OK. Negotiate if you are paying in cash because I'd say she is over priced for... More

It's OK, nice pool. Casino? Bar is open. Place has been a long time hooker place, and some of them live in the apartments as part of their compensation. Hey they weren't over bearing but it is what it is. Mostly Tico clientele with the girls. None of this is a secret in Quepos. It's about halfway from Quepos to... More

Stayed here for 1 night whilst visiting Manuel Antonio park area. Wanted to visit the national park as felt it was a 'must do' thing in CR- how wrong! Saw much more wildlife in other park areas, even other accomodations and on other hikes! Drove to the park for it's 7am opening, was greeted by coconut sellers telling us to... More
