This is not a 5 star hotel by American standard, but I have never stayed in a nicer one in Costa Rica. The facility is kept squeaky clean, the staff are patient and hard working, the restaurant is really good, and the pool is wonderful. Air conditioning and TV were a real treat. It was one of the best spots... More

The hotel is placed on a small hill with a limited view to the Pacific Coast. Access to the ocean from the hotel is not possible but... More
