I had wonderful expectation of La Dolce Vita in Esterillos, Costa Rica. You always get what you pay for and this was fact. I did not know the room came with 1000's of big biting ants. We could have dealt with the small ants but we had to ask for our room to be sprayed. It was like candy to the huge ants and they were very mad. We had bites all over us. Just a little caulk, weather stripping, bug spray would do the trick and hope they will read this review and take care of it.
Then the Suicide Shower. It was maybe warm but more cold. The show is a very bad wire job of an electric shower head that sprayed water more up than down. It was definitely a electrical risk.
The pool about 4' wide and 10 feet long and actually more of a cold (hot) tub.
The air-conditioner was great...very good. We tried to freeze the ants out of our room and bed.
It is not a romantic or even ideal place for a couple. It would be a guys surfer pad or just some friends wanting a beach place. For the cost it was ok but keep the bugs under 1/2 long and the shower electrical risk down and it would be a nice place.
Spend a little more and get a little more someplace else....you will be pleased! Just FYI!
