This place is horrible! the owner is the rudest most intrusive person I have ever met. I asked prior to booking if he had reliable wifi as My girlfriend and I had to work 2 out of the 6 days. The owner said they have great Internet so we booked. The Internet and the AC didn't work in either our room or our friends room upstairs, so we lost 2 days of work. Also the shower had 5 dirty luffas in it when we checked in. We did not complain or say anything to him. Throughout our trip the owner asked at every chance if we turned off our lights and kept stating how expensive electricity is in Costa Rica, Which got so annoying. There is rust on the lamp and mold on the walls ( I have pics if proof is needed) and we still didn't complain cause we wanted to make the best of our week. On the last night there we started doing laundry and he stormed downstairs drunk yelling and screaming calling us thieves cause we didn't ask him if we can use the machines and repeated over and over pay me now.. Please note the machines were next to our room and we thought we had access and there was no sign stating otherwise. He demanded we pay and insulted us saying he should put a fence around the machine to keep us animals out. Even after we paid the insane fee of $10 for a load of cloths he still came down and took our cloths out of the dryer still wet cause the dryer was on for 30 min. We went home with wet cloths. I wouldn't advise anyone to stay at this place just because of the owner he shows no respect for his guest or staff. He also said to my girlfriend that the best wife is one that cost $40/hour (prostitute). This guy doesn't deserve to live in such a beautiful country. the employees are amazing and very fun to hangout, with they deserve better than an alcoholic owner that produces a hostel environment.
I have uploaded real pics of the place you can judge for your self.
Save you vacation and stay away from this place.
