If you don't mind a few bumps and getting your rental car dirty, then go off the tar seal up to this place and I think you'll find good value. There was no extra charge for children, and tax was actually included in the quoted price ... so for us this place ended up being about 60% of the price of some of the equivalent hotels (Silencio etc). In a country that apparently used to be a lot more reasonably priced, it feels like you need to seek out the value ... and this place provided it for us.
Here's what we enjoyed most:
- breakfast: of all the places we stayed in CR (except the all-inclusive), this breakfast was head and shoulders above the rest. It was buffet style with typical CR rice/beans, sausages/eggs/bacon, breads and even made-to-order omelets. It was great.
- cabin/room - clean, spacious, newish, nice bathroom with fabulous large head on shower together with good hot water
- pool/hot tub - kept our boys busy, even in the rain, while we chatted to other guests
Unfortunately, the weather was poor, but we did manage to wander the grounds between showers and they were very nice, though I'm guessing that they might not be as extensive as some of the other hotels (or maybe we just did not see it all). Still, we were delighted with our choice and would definitely put this top of our list next time in a somewhat overpriced town.
