Very nice stay! Didn't expect anything too fancy, but this hotel was lovely. We had a room overlooking the pool and the room was spotless. The business office was great. We were able to check in for our flight and print out our boarding passes.

We began and ended our Costa Rican adventure at this hotel. The rooms were clean, spacious and the bed comfortable. The service was friendly and the outdoor pool and garden was gorgeous. The pool closed by 6pm, so that was a bit of a downer for the teens. The hotel restaurant served the most amazing meals. Their rice with chicken... More

Service was Good except for the towels they kept messing them up, other wise the hotel was great pool was cold and the Jacuzzi was only about 2 degrees' warmer so not hot. However it was relaxing and we were able to tour around the country with no problems.

We stayed here for two nights. The room was clean and neat. Our flight out was very early, so we needed to catch the 4:00 AM shuttle. We got to the desk at 3:45. There were a few people in front of us. At 4:10 AM, the shuttle driver announced it was leaving. After 25 minutes waiting in line, we... More

Small rooms are well kept and clean, the view over the gardens and pool is pleasant. Reception staff are rude and unfriendly. Food in the area is poor - the included breakfast at Denny's is terrible and the buffet restaurant across the road is bad too. There is nothing to see or do without taking a taxi but it is... More

We got in late from the airport and were greeted very kindly by the desk clerk and were quickly settled into our room. It was certainly sufficient for our quick overnight stay and we were provided a Denny's restaurant (attached to motel) voucher (which we didn't use because of our very early departure.) Upon awakening we were surprised to see... More

Smoking odor, no amenities, no courtesy water, no chairs at terrace, old towels, helpless counter personnel, if you need a taxi, get it for yourself, only 5-7 am transfer to the Airport, better have your room clean before mid day or not, room service by an expensive "Denny's", not ever gonna come back!
