Let me start by saying that we are very used to travel and have stayed in many different countries, hotels and b&b's. Since we would arrive a bit later in the day in Mal Pais, we decided to arrange a place to stay in advance through Booking.com for 2 nights. The surroundings and the grounds of the hotel look very good, the pool is amazing and the views from the restaurant are awesome. Now for the bad news: it was a bit disappointing that there were only double beds available. For a place with supposedly this much class, a queen bed would be so much better. We stayed in a building with 4 rooms. Even though our neighbours were not very loud, we could hear everything they were doing and saying. The beds consisted of some kind of plastic matrass cover which makes sure you have a very sweaty night. The restaurant was closed, even though the hotel was fully booked. But the worst part was our arrival. A very cranky guy showed us our room. No personal touch, no information, not even saying where the breakfast was served and at what time. We had never experienced such a welcome in our 2.5 weeks in Costa Rica. All and all, for a hotel that looks as good as it does, it was a disappointing stay...
