Stayed here during our roundtrip in Costa Rica. First of all, the surroundings are beautiful, but the city of Puntarenas itself is decayed and looks abandoned from time to time. Lots of people hanging out in the streets, and also lots of pimped cars driving around slowly.
Pros: looks as one of the best hotels in Puntarenas from the outside. Check-in is smooth. There is a fenced parking lot at the back of the hotel. There's a beach if you cross the street. Pool is fine, refreshing. Everything is there in your room, including a fridge, AC and safe. Bed is nice and big.
Cons: An elevator is missing, so you'll have to carry your (heavy) luggage up the stairs yourself.
Although ther is a safe, it isn't attached to anything in your room, so in theory they can steal your safe and open it elsewhere.
The shower gets cold every 30 seconds. There's also a bathtub, but it can't be used because the drain can't be closed watertight, so water keeps running away. The bathtub also tends to bent below your feet, so it feels like it's going the break or something like that.
Breakfast is mediocre, scrammbled eggs are more like soggy eggs.
Most staff only speaks Spanish. The girls behind the desk do speak English, but they simply seem not interested and unfriendly.
