Ok. So this hotel has a beautiful garden, pretty good rooms, great beds, very helpful staff, an ok pool and a nice breakfast. Then why complain about the price?
Maybe it is because of the fact that this was the most expensive hotel during our stay in Costa Rica, probably because its proximity to the airport. But then again, no. It is just that Costa Rica is too expensive all the way. Sure, the country is better than a lot of other countries in the region, in terms of food safety, security and water quality. But it is still no way up to western standards in that respect, while the prices more than are.
This is a nice hotel, very good even for a Central American hotel, but it is still a Central American hotel. Call us Dutch, but we expect to pay less for a Central American hotel with Central American quality, than we would have to pay for a middle class hotel in Amsterdam, with European quality. And we didn’t.
It’s not fair to judge this hotel only by its country, so we won’t. But we had to let you know.
