“Beware.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2009

My husband and I are adventurous. We traveled to Costa Rica on our honeymoon and intentionally did half of our trip using small hotels and hostels because we like to have a more authentic travel experience when we leave the country. We stayed at many lovely hostels that were spare, but clean and I have nothing but positive things to say about them. Keeping our low expectations in mind I must warn you that this hotel was simply beyond horrible.

Lonely Planet gives it a perplexingly positive review (Oct 2006), which mentions "renovations," and "sparkling rooms." I have no idea what they are speaking of, because unless they had just finished filming a horror movie in this hotel there is NO WAY it was recently renovated. So far from their description was this hotel, that I checked the address twice to make sure we were in the right place.

There was dirt and some unknown substance on the walls, the floors were tacky...and the bedspread looked dingy and unwashed. I did not even dare to sleep beneath the covers...and actually kept my clothes on the whole night. Not what my husband had in mind.

On the positive side, they did have parking, and we considered sleeping in our car. Also, we didn't see any roaches. I was amazed, but the couple that stayed across the hall said they were all over their room the whole night.

I will say that our honeymoon took place in 2007 (it is now 2009), so if you are thinking about staying there I strongly suggest you have a look at the rooms first. I hope for the sake of all that is sanitary that things have changed.

It was a great hotel. We rented the apartment and it was perfect. Not Luxury but a great way of spending a vaccation in Heredia.
Not much to do on the hotel but there is not far to some entertainment.
