The place is great, beautiful green areas, nice rooms, and a pool, but this is where the rating goes down, it seems like it's been without maintenance, beyond that the staff and the hotel itself is a very good choice.

I enjoyed my stay here in late January 2014, but there were a few issues. The room was small, which didn't bother me because I was only in it to sleep. The wifi did not work in the room, the ceiling fan was extremely noisy, as was the metal roof--I was startled out of deep sleep on several occasions by... More

We stayed for a couple of nights, our first two in Costa Rica. We had no idea what expect, but thought it was nice for the price. The AC worked well, which we came to find is a blessing this time of year. The room was comfortable and had shower with hot water (not a given in these parts). The... More

This is possibly one of the worst hotels I have been in for awhile. Noisy, no hot water at all (when I turned on the faucet nothing came out), dripping air conditioner and the rooms not very clean (I was afraid to touch the sofa bed). The room next door, which had only a thin connecting door, had 3 adults... More

Beyond bad - no hot water, sink clogged up, poor internet, mechanic working outside the bathroom window, and zero attention by the manager to these issues. We raised our issues to the nice receptionist who was sympathetic, but the manager just hid in his office and never came out to talk to us (albeit he could not speak english) which... More

We were told they... More

Resent remodel was top notch. Service was above our expectations. Maid staff,front desk and resturant staff made Us feel like we were 5 star visitors. The included breakfast was delicious and exactly what a hungry surfer needed. The kitchen was well organized and extremely clean. The grounds and pool were very well maintained. Rooms were insect free and the ac... More

We went on our trip to Dominical in mid sept which is their off season so needless to say the hotel or surrounding area was not very busy. I loved the feeling of having the town and hotel pretty much to ourselves. The hotel room was small but had a great authentic Costa Rican vibe! It had a tin roof... More

We went during off season and the hotel was undergoing repairs. Many of the shops and restaurants were closed. It was great that we could rent a car at the hotel, that allowed us to go the Whale tour in Uvite and to Quepos. The on site restaurant has good thin crust pizza, they also will make the typical plate... More
