“Decent hotel close to beautiful area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

The rooms were nice and it was fun to have a balcony. Air con was very loud. Staff was helpful but not very friendly.

English speaking reception, was a great surprise. The hotel offers wifi and is close to Fishing Pier, and central to all the good restaurants and bars. Hotel has been newly remodeled and staff very helpful in arranging tours and fishing trips

Room Tip: Specify queen or twin beds. Direct contact email malinchesportfishing@yahoo.com

Within walking distance of bus station (250 colones into Manual Antonio) and restaurants in the town.
Nothing special, just convenience.
Slatted glass windows in bathrooms, which opened out into the corridor. Made it very noisy
Staff were not particularly interested in helping or overly friendly.

Quepos itself, isn't a very charming place. The city generates noise , prostitutes and odors that can be unappealing at times. This hotel had roaches and other various insects, the walls of our room were cracking, and had a strange odor. This was worse than any hostel I have ever been in. We complained and they refused to give us our money back, so we ended up just abandoning our $$. I suggest staying in a place outside of quepos, on the road to Manuel Antonio. We stayed at mono azul, and had a great time.

Only one tip - request an upstairs room. These rooms are basic but better than the downstairs ones. Have ac and tv

Close to Quepos bus station. Quepos itself feels like a lawless hole. Many a trade taking place on street corners.

The room price was fair. The rooms were okay sized. No televisions and no a/c. The showers were fairly cold. The noise level from outside was very loud early in the morning. The staff at the front was not friendly, but it was okay. The bed was not comfortable. The location was nice. It was a short walk to the bus station, close to restaurants and stores. The parking lot was very small. The wi-fi did not work in the room. You had to sit pretty much on top of the window in order to get a small signal.

Not quite what I was expecting. Room was nice apart from the damp around the much needed air con unit. Didnt always have hot water. Good tv. Wifi but no computer on site. One night was very noisey, other nights were of medium noise level. One night was spent jumping into a cold shower every 5 mins due to the air con not being turned on at the mains in reception and no staff on duty. All staff were as helpful as possible but only one staff member spoke english. They organised 3 good tours for me (Canopy, jet ski and horse ride). Located in the centre of an urban area. Good transport link as interbus pick up from there and tours pick you up directly. At $30 per night it was ok.
