We weren't planning to travel to the Golfito area but we ended up having to look for a last-minute hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the spacious and cosily decorated rooms, the pool with the excellent view, and most of all by the excellent food! We couldn't stop ordering, and truth be told we did little else there than swim around, stare into the distance from the pool and stuff our faces. We took a lovely day to recharge and the kind and sweet owners provided us with anything we could wish for! This hotel's premises is a jewel within the area!
