We had an excellent stay in Costa Rica during x-mas and new year 2011.First 2 and the last night we spend at the hotel. We had in advance heard that the hotel was good. Even so it was better than we had thought. The nice english spoken staff had in advance helped us to book a car that was delivered to the hotel in the morning the day after we arrived. The atmosphere was about the same as you can find in a small inn in the English countryside with a personal interest in each guest.
