We stayed one night here. Beach was great but the hotel was not. Staff of one didn't speak enough English to understand that I wanted a hand towel and a wash cloth...there were none in the room. Grounds were littered with trash but the worst thing was the air conditioner. It either leaked or there was so much condensation that... More

This hotel is right on the beach, this might mislead people to thinking it's actually worth what you pay. It's not. The bathrooms were gross, not properly cleaned and way outdated. There were mice in the ceilings (of the 4-people apartment/suite) and the maids only came once during our 3 day stay. The pool was not very clear; it had... More

Quiet place near Jaco beach. Rooms need to be painted, old curtains are hanging and old ugly comforters are on bed, new bathrooms needed, ours looked clean but it had old stains everywhere (room 20).....The room has a nice view to the pool and to the beach! Employees are very nice!

Horrible, El hotel esta muy descuidado, los baños huelen mal, el aire acondicionado casi no enfria y hace demasiado ruido. La comida del restaurante es muy cara para la calidad que ofrecen, si ordenas un plato de frutas para el desayuno te cobran 2500 colones, por medio banano, una rebanada de piña, una rebanada de papaya, y un trozo de...

I really needed a good night sleep after camping for a week in the jungle, for the price I expected a real dump but I was wrong. My feet were in the ocean 30 seconds from my door, beds were fine, the food was terrific & very reasonably priced. Perfect stop, might stay another night.

Ant infestation in room, bathrooms where filthy, pool was very murky and hotel was run down. Wifi did not reach the rooms (only at front dest) Staff were nice and gave us wood for a fire on the beach every night. Good location although the beach is dangerous to swim on because of strong rip-tides

The hotel looks good on the outside picture, but that is not what you get. It seems as they have not changed any beds,linen, pillows, curtains, etc in decades. It is not a place where a decent person can sleep, or at least sleep well. The pool was so dirty that we were afraid our kids would be sick after... More

We make academic field trips to different places in Costa Rica with our students to see turtle nesting, whales and other marine biology events. We thought this was supposed to be one of the nicer hotels in Hermosa so we took our small group (12 students) there! The service was horrible and their was a clear lack of good fumigation... More

Meaning that if it did not sit on a fantastic beach, it would probably be closed! • People are unpleasant all the rest was poor. • The bar is nonexistent, • Safe box in rooms is totally unsafe. • For Wi-fi connection you have to wander around the premises searching for some sort of signal. Cheap family hotel where I... More
