This was our second visit back to Costa Rica, and we chose this hotel again for a quiet place close to the airport. Our experience at this place was even better! They have upgraded the rooms and made them fancier, and we loved that they now have coffee available before the dining room opens for breakfast. They had more things for breakfast this time, too. They've added eggs and cheese for us protein-lovers. The gardens were fantastic, and we saw lots of birds near our cabin. One thing we really like about this hotel is that the staff actually come up to you and ask if you need anything, or if you had a good sleep. In many places we stayed at the staff sort of disappeared after giving you the room key and taking your money. Here, they told us what was available at the hotel, where we could find what we needed, and gave us directions. There were lots of restaurants close by, and one night we ate really good Costa Rican food and the second night we decided to have Italian at a fancy place down the road. Before we arrived in Costa Rica, the hotel helped us find a good deal on a car rental, and the car company brought the car right to the hotel.
We wanted a tour so they gave us advice on what might suit us, and we had a really good day tour of Poas Volcano, which we weren't able to see last time we were in Costa Rica. A new butterfly garden has opened up down the street, which wasn't there last time, and we really enjoyed that too.
The rooms were very clean and we liked the little details of the cute towel-shapes! The rooms aren't huge, but the price is good and they have a great swimming pool and wi-fi. We were treated with genuine hospitality and care. We overslept on the morning of our flight, and we were in a big rush, and the girl at the desk helped us checkout really fast and got us a taxi in 5 minutes. We didn't have time for breakfast so she quickly packed us some banana bread and fruit and drink so we would have something to eat along the way.
We would definitely stay at this hotel again. We had a great time."
