I would suggest you spend a little more than one or two nights in this place, since most travellers do that and didn't get to enjoy it the way we did.
Because we were there for almost 3 to 4 days, we pretty much felt like we were enjoying our own villa. We hung out in the pool and at the backyard tables with little to no intrusion from other guests, because few people stay in the day.
The service was absolutely excellent. In order to ensure that you get to the hotel safely, they have a shuttle that runs anytime of the day (the old man who drives the shuttle sleeps in the hotel and awaits any phone calls). He is very good-natured and even allowed us to stop for food because we were starving.
Another service person I would like to bring up (can't remember his name, though) was this man who helped us to make phone calls for confirmations and clinch discounts through the people he knew. We were going to Jaco but spoke little to no Spanish, and had nothing concrete the day before we were due to leave. But this guy helped us by spending almost upwards of 2 hours simply calling shuttle services and hotels in Jaco to ensure we could arrive safely and comfortably. If anything, that level of service would bring me back to Airport Hotel Berlor the next time.
Check out Oscar's Fried Chicken and the Pizza Place that is connected to another inn/hotel.
One more point: I was -really- disgusted by the state of the toilet of the bigger room past the pool. Granted, it was very big and value for money, but there were dark brown holes in the ground and walls. I am generally a flexible person when it comes to lodging, but that toilet was pretty disgusting for me. I don't even mind the random paraphernalia that were strewn around the room in heaps and covered in dust. But the toilet...
