I'll start with the positives. Our room was clean and the bed comfortable. The hotel's staff are friendly, and we had a good experience booking a tour through the front desk. The food in the restaurant was good, or at least as good as one can expect in a country not known for its cuisine.
Now for the negatives.
The noise from the casino was so bad that our traveling companions had to move to a different room just to be able to sleep. Our room was under the restaurant, and we heard chairs and table being moved around every night at closing and again every morning before opening.
Although we could see the ocean from our balcony, the view was seriously limited by utility lines and poles. (I think this was also a factor in our never being able to connect to the free Internet service, so we were forced to use the computer in the hotel lobby to check e-mail.)
Lastly, the breakfast buffet consisted of store-bought orange juice - which, I'm sorry, but in a country where orange trees grow in people's yards is really unacceptable - with dry cereal and Costa Rica's version of Wonder bread for toasting. Additional items, like eggs, were available for purchase.
If you don't mind sleeping with earplugs, this one might be an option. Otherwise, move on down the road to Manuel Antonio with its wide array of suitable options.
