The hotel, owned by an elderly German gentleman, is small and suited our needs. Located up on the hill, it has a wonderful view (amazing sunset). Rooms are basic - bed, bathroom, hangers to hang some stuff and towels. No TV, internet ready. Fresh coffee and delicious fruits and eggs for breakfast in the morning. Hotel is a very steep... More

The room was one step from a hostel, and not a good one. I was on the back side of the hotel, so no sunset view. There are two on the backside so insist on the front otherwise you look at the back of a hill. Met a scorpion 3" from my face, on the shower curtain. I was lucky.... More

Sending best wishes to Robbie and Papa! My 2 girlfriends and I stayed at the Sunset Hotel and were absolutely thrilled with our experience! Robbie was working reception when we showed up and there was non-stop laughter from the time we got there until the time we left! Our room was clean and comfortable and just what we needed! We...

My boyfriend and I really loved this place. The father and son who run the hotel are so kind and welcoming - I read this before hand in a lot of reviews and it was true. The location was very convenient, the rooms were simple and clean and just what we needed, the breakfast was great and also included and... More

This is a great place! Very comfortable, wonderful hosts, and the best value in Costa Rica. Couldn't ask for more! Breakfast is great, location is perfect, and view is wonderful. We did a horseback riding trip arranged by the hotel that was not good - but I think if you just make sure that the trip does not include paved... More

I was a little worried by the nasty review I had seen on this site so I asked to check out the room before agreeing to stay. I took 2 seconds to realize that I was absolutely staying! What a nice place! Clean room, hot water and a stunning view. We stayed here 4 nights and were thrilled. Vitalis, the... More

The owner of the hotel was very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel rooms were small but clean and had hot running water. The walls were not at all sound proof. You could hear both sides of a cell phone conversation, ice cubes being dropped in a drink and heavy breathing in adjacent rooms. Breakfast was provided and was at 7:30... More

We stayed here for two nights while we explored the area. The view is very fitting as the view of the sunset is amazing and the stars are beautiful. The staff were super accomodating that they were able to give us food even past the breakfast hour given we had an early morning tour. They called and confirmed our tours... More

Probably the nicest guy in all of Costa Rica runs this hotel. He will go out of his way to do anything for you. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from the quiet little town. Walk down, taxi home would be my suggestion. Breakfast is made for you in the morning eggs, fruit, bread, homemade jam and coffee. Pizza... More

The sunset hotel is named properly, you can see the sunset perfectly from the hotel. If you are feeling adventurous you can also walk down from the hotel to a small water tower where you can get an ever better view of the sunset. The hotel is family owned and run. They provided excellent service. The rooms were perfect and... More
