Very friendly and efficient staff. Nice range of good food and drinks on offer in the restaurant with the best breakfasts (Nice yogurts and fruit) I had while in Costa Rica. Good views from the restaurant over the bay. Comfortable bed and clean room. Convenient location for the bus station for getting buses into Manuel Antonio, which has the nicer beaches. Good facilities with swimming pool and free internet access in the lounge.
Dingy and noisy bedroom. Even though I had one of the inside facing rooms (recommended as 'quieter' by another traveller) traffic noise from the road outside was still very evident. The bathroom vent opened onto the inside corridor so make sure this is closed before going to bed to avoid attracting further noise from passing guests. The lighting in the room was poor.
Quepos is an ok location by day but not the nicest of places by night. Aside from eating in the hotel, which can be an expensive option, the best restaurants are at Manuel Antonio or on the road in between these two towns. This means another bus or taxi ride out of town.
The water system failed on the day I was checking out. This was reported by another reviewer staying on a different date so this obviously wasn't an isolated incident. Even if it is a problem throughout the town the hotel needs to have a contingency stand by for flushing the loos in the public areas. These rapidly became unhygenic to use. Buckets of water, if necessary filled from the swimming pool, would go some way toward solving the problem.
Would I stay here again if in this area? Probably not as I would prefer to stay at or closer to Manuel Antonio and visit Quepos through the day, rather than the other way around. Of course this may cost slightly more so it depends on your budget.
