We decided to overnight for a mini vacation before our visa trip to Costa Rica. If you stay at the hotel, we highly recommend the 1st floor pool side suites. There are five rooms that have a very nice veranda where you can sit outside and enjoy the evening under a ceiling fan.
The Barbeque restaurant outside by the pool is great. We had the dinner for two, that ended up making four meals! (if you are local, bring a cooler).
We were there on a Saturday night and the music at the bar outside promptly ended at 10pm, allowing for a very nice nights' sleep. If you want to keep partying, head to the Casino.
The bed and pillows are fantastic, the fridge in the room is very convienent.
We will stay there again, even if we do not need to make the Costa Rica run, it was just fun getting away for a night from the highlands.
