No heating in the room and as this is near the cloud forrest, not very warm most of the time. Very windy. Good views though. Bathroom strange. Huge bath, but plug did not work and unable to use taps to fill bath. There were 30 folks in our party and none of us could use the bath. Shower only on... More

Stunning views from a basic room. The room was clean. Bathroom was clean too, though a bit small. Staff were helpful. The hotel consists of multiple blocks with different sized and equipped rooms. Wifi only in the main building. Breakfast was okay.

This is a very basic hotel (tagged 3 stars). We booked it because we could not get anything better, and hoped to be surprised... Well, we were not... Out of two couples, we got the better room, in the main building. The beds were large and the linen clean, however, there was no airconditioning in the room, and all its... More

The hotel is located in an enviable position facing west with far reaching views of the Pacific coastline. Set in beautiful gardens with plenty of birds. However that is all the hotel has going for it. The rooms are dated, the wardrobe was falling to bits and the sink was chipped and marked and the towels very thin. The bathroom... More

This hotel is dated but it was comfortable and clean. We had an amazing sunset. Watching the birds was great but we would recommend that they place chairs around the large lawn to accommodate more comfortable viewing. We were very pleased that you could walk to town and there were many shops and restaurants even closer. The walk has a... More

We had a great view of the valley from our balcony on the top floor of the hotel. We bird-watched from our balcony and had a great view of the sunset. We saw Emerald Toucanets the first morning. The rooms were big and comfortable. The breakfasts in the dining room were served family style which was different. We took advantage... More

When we arrived we were extremely impressed by the first glance to the hotel. It seemed quite high class for the price we paid and the view we got at the sunset was absolutely breathtaking. That's the good thing about this place: the amazing view. Otherwise it really isn't great, the hotel has been quite neglected and it isn't clean.... More

This was a very nice rustic hotel that we stayed at with a tour group. The room was very nice, but we got there when it was cold and windy and it was freezing to sleep at night. We asked for extra blankets and had to do so three times before we got them. They definitely need new mattresses, and... More

Although the views from this hotel are spectacular, it is well past it's prime. The beds were very firm, squeaky, and the pillows were old and very flat. The bedspread had some questionable stains on it. Unfortunately, this was the worst hotel we experienced during our Costa Rican vacation. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.

This place has the best location and views and the rooms are adequate but quite comfortless and cold. The dining hall reminded me of my school days, a huge refectory which felt very empty and unwelcoming. I was part of a groups of 21 and they put on breakfast for us specially early one day, which was helpful, but when... More
