“My favorite pool in Costa Rica”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

The room was simple but clean, had a fridge and AC, as well as a hammock on the terrace. Nice owner. Montezuma in walking distance (if you don't mind walking uphill on the way back), but it's a lot more quiet than downtown. Very relaxing, especially at the pool, which was my favorite one during 2 months of traveling Costa Rica :-)

Fantastic location, quick walk to the beach, and monkeys were everywhere around the property, they put on a great show, BBQ at night was fantastic. Basic rooms but good value for the price. Cool little town!!

Nice basic rooms, private patios with hammocks. Lovely pool and grounds. Owner seemed unconcerned with service during the off season, but was very nice. A bit of a hike from town. The howler monkeys gave us a show!

This place has a great location - right near the beach, very close to town center, nice pool, lovely grounds and plants all around. There was a bbq in the garden both nights we stayed there. Our room did not smell the best. It smelled like a backed up sewer the entire trip. The breakfast was not very good either.

We were not lucky enough to see monkeys here, but the owners aren't responsible for the coming and goings of the local wildlife. :)


Very quiet and clean.

Especially nice owners.
Good value.
Near town but far enough away to be quit.

Near a nice beach but not in walking distance for anybody due to being up the mountain.. Walking down would be no problem for the fairly fit.

Room Tip: Costa Rican rooms do not come with wash clothes and seldom with glasses. Often only a sheet on the...

there are 6 cabins suitet in 3 nice houses. the rooms are basic but clean and ood equiped (ac, fridge and we had a coffeemaker). in front is a table, where we always had our breakfast in the morning sun. the beds are good. the showers hot. our kids (3 and 5 years old) loved the big pool. wifi was available at the pool with its seaview. the owner is very helpful. the location is at the road to montezuma, but i is really quiet and a 15 minute walk down the steep hill to montezuma.

The pool was very clean and just about perfect. There were hammocks on the front deck that were very comfortable. The A/C worked well and the beds were surprisingly comfy.

Room Tip: There are some rooms that are right by the road, you may want to ask for one furthest away from the...
