We didn't actually stay at this hotel, but we were in the area during Thanksgiving and went there for a big feast they throw for all the Americans. We had a large party and we ended up talking with the owner and his daughter for almost an hour. The owner is married to a Costa Rican and they run the place with their daughter. They were incredibly accommodating and told us a lot about their experience in CR. They also own some pet deer that are much smaller than deer in the US and they were very friendly! The place had a very laid back vibe with a beautiful landscape. It is near Carrillo beach, which is absolutely gorgeous! It was one of our favorite beaches in all of Costa Rica. (We went all over the western part of the country.) Also, Samara Beach is just north of there and is gorgeous as well and has a lot more activities. (It's only about 10-15 minutes.) I would highly recommend both the area and the hotel!
