My husband and I were booked the stay three nights here as part of a trip through Gate 1 Travel. When we arrived, the staff was kind and the hotel room itself was clean.
We wanted to walk down to the beach which was only a couple hundred feet away. During the walk, we passed by roosters, dogs, etc. Honestly, it was okay as we understood at that point we were in a more local area. We were told there were a few beach-side bars and even had a map to show where they were - there was absolutely nothing on the beach (except a bunch of closed down buildings).
We ended up leaving that night, mainly because we were told there was scuba diving in the area (we had even located a dive shop before we left), but once we got there, were told there was definitely no diving nearby.
If you're looking for a laid-back, rustic location, then I'm sure you'll enjoy the hotel and the area. We were just expecting something different and it didn't match up with the plans we had made for that part of our trip.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our hotel is a mixture of pleasure and elegance combined with a little touch of our Costa Rican flavor. Our hotel uses the natural resources that only Costa Rica as a non artificial ingredients country gives us. Our staff strongly believes in the Sustainable Tourism and we are working very hard to follow this concept. It is a hotel just 75ft away from the beach where the pleasure and comfort is our priority. ... more less
