The owner Stefano and the kind Tican couple who take care of the small hotel were very friendly and helpful. The town is 20 mins away from the bustling and commercial Jaco and it is the exact opposite--at least for the weekdays that we were there. The room is actually a small apartment with some nice touches---bedspreads and light fixtures and a functioning kitchen so it is possible to buy local food and cook at home. The location is perfect---right on the ocean with a shady spot to hang out right outside the gate. There is also an impeccable and pretty but tiny pool and outdoor shower to helpful with cleaning after ocean swimming. This is a great spot for surfers and body surfers---both experienced and not. We had a great time. The owner is working on gradually improving the hotel---our bed was uncomfortable and he was grateful to hear this feedback so that he can put it on the list of things to improve. And I believe he will do so.
