Adequate but not special

I had lunch there - I wanted to sit down and cool off from the heat, and have access to the gardens for birding. So I got what I wanted, plus lunch. Which was OK, but not special. There was only one other table - the place was practically deserted.

It was the inly place open and we did get a meal.I like spicey food but I do not like it all piled on the same plate. It was all just OK -you know that there was nothing memorable about the meal.

The place its self is beautiful. It's a plantation style building, lots of wood and it screams good quality in its architectural design. The gardens are amazing and the trees attracted both green macaws and the rainbow billed toucan - both of which we saw from the veranda which was fantastic. I really enjoyed sitting out on the veranda and... More

This restaurant is owned by the nice lady Miss Junies, and she is in charge of the kitchen, so be sure you´re going to have the best of the Caribbean style cuisine, fresh food, excellent "patacones" (fried green plantains) and "yuca", the sauce of my fish was great... Don´t miss it!

The hotel sent a guide to pick me up at the bus station. The rrom is clean and lovely, however the light was scarced both for power saving reasons and because a light bulb was broken. I told the staff but it was not foxed before I left. I had the good suprirse to find each day my household linen... More

When we arrived they were confused at reception not knowing how long we were staying and said we had booked tours, which we had not booked. After getting over this initial confusion they then stared at us for a couple of minutes before we had to ask for our room key and where our room was. Although this was bad... More

The food here was full of flavour and with great portion sizes. The veggie plate was the best I´ve had in all of South and Central America, with a nice variety of different things on it. The Miss Junie´s Stewed Chicken that my boyfriend had was also amazing, the meat just fell off the bone. The staff were attentive too.... More

A small, quaint local eatery where the food is amazing and the staff exceptional. It was so nice to find little jewels like this off the beaten path in Costa Rica.

We were there for 2 nights and except during breakfast did not see the staff once! Not to greet us, and in the end we just walked off leaving the room key on the door. The hotel was included in our Tortuguero tour package but still it would have been nice to at least say hello to guests. On the... More
