This is a very nice bed and breakfast hotel at which we enjoyed staying during our visit to the area. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfasts were very good. There is free wifi. They have laundry services for a reasonable fee. Also, it has a nice little pool and a spa next to the pool. We stayed in honeymoon room #11 that had the shower rather than the tub (which was in the other honeymoon room). It was comfortable and had a huge shower. The bathroom was a bit small but we were able to work around it. (It would have been nice if the room would have had an additional mirror somewhere other than the bathroom.) The only real negative was the TV was postage stamp sized. Obviously, we didn’t come to Costa Rica to watch TV, but it would have been nicer with a larger TV.
The breakfasts were very good. We were pleasantly surprised that we had three different choices for breakfast (fried/scrambled eggs and chorizo; omelet with ham, cheese and/or green onions; pancakes – and all could include rice and black beans and fresh fruit) and all of them were very good. Also, since it was the slow season (we were actually the only ones at the hotel during our stay), they allowed us to use the outdoor fridge to store sodas and beers. A very nice perk that we certainly wouldn’t have gotten had the hotel been fuller.
A few tips for when you stay. Bring your own hair dryer and shampoo. Also, be aware that you are a $6 taxi ride to Playas del Coco with a $6 return. There is a nice restaurant/bar a short walk from the hotel (Father Roosters) on Ocotal beach, but Playas del Coco has more to offer and you’ll certainly want to go into Coco to eat, drink and shop. If you stay for an extended period, you’ll likely want to rent a car to tour the surrounding beaches and sights and to drive to and from Coco. None of these are negatives, just things to be aware of.
We were happy with our stay and would stay again.
