“Very nice stay, loved the swimming pool!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

We stayed at La Sirena hotel in March 2012 and we really enjoyed it.

The hotel is calm and well-equiped with a very nice swimming pool. There is a nice deck with big fans near the swimming pool where the breakfast is served. The breakfast is very good. Wifi is available in the hotel. The rooms are big, very comfortable and clean. We booked a one-day tour to Manuel Anotnio with the hotel, it was very good. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance and the bus stand is close too.

Very good hotel, we definitely recommend it!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

When booking this hotel (which is billed as a backpackers hostel), we mostly chose it because of the good price, realizing that we wouldn't be spending that much time in the hotel.
Upon our arrival, we were immediately impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the overall clean, light and airy appearance of the hotel. I loved the open upstairs terrace with rocking chairs and the pool, though small, was very refreshing and well maintained.
Our rooms were spacious, clean and well-appointed in terms of shelves and cupboards for storage and I slept like a baby the night we stayed there. Our air conditioning worked fabulously, but our friends in the room next to us said theirs wasn't quite as great.
It was very nice staying down in Quepos, as opposed to the tourist trap right by Manuel Antonio; but we were just a shuttle ride away from the park entrance and had a wonderful time enjoying the national park.
I would definitely patronise La Sirena again!

We enjoyed a two-week stay at the la Sirena Hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Also, there is a bilingual staff at the reservations counter which made communicating easy. Our room was cleaned daily and provided with fresh towels. The linen on the bed was changed often. We felt safe. The hotel provided all the amenities advertised on the web. I recommend this hotel.

Disfruté mi estancia de dos semanas en la Sirena hotel. El personal fue muy amable y servicial. También, hubo personal bilingüe en la recepción que hizo fácil nuestra comunicacion. El hotel ofrece todas las comodidades que se anuncian en la web. Yo recomiendo este hotel.

Before writing the opinion, i read some others and get surprised on what someone paid (20usd!!??) and what we paid (80usd). Our room was supposed to be the basic one ...

Hotel is greatly located in Quepos, and service is kind and helpfull. Breakfast is ok; if it's not enough for you, you have a great bakery just in front of the hotel.

But i am still wondering how and why did the hotel owner closed the hotel with these big windows inside and outside the construction. The resulting sauna effect in a town like Quepos is absolutely terrible, and moreover when rooms' a/c machine are so loudy that you gotta choose, during night between hot or noise!!!

On the way to Manuel Antonio (13kms far from Quepos) you have lots of resorts/hotels, and if you are a mid+ budget traveller i would recommend to check something else.
Quepos is interesting since it conserves the reminescence of charming CR towns, even if gringos sport fishing turists can ruin the picture sometimes (notr always :)).

If you can book a 20usd room, it is worth of it, if not, choose something else.

I made a solo trip to Costa Rica and on a last minute whim headed to the Pacific Coast for some beach, monkey, sloth and wave time. I didn't want to stay in Manuel Antonio fearing a great number of tourists and expensive hotels so I choose a hotel in Quepos. I emailed the hotel from a computer at my hotel in San Jose and then called. The yong lady who e-mailed me back was terrific, she confimed my room number and volunteered a discounted rate from the rate advertised at their website. The young man who answered my phone call spoke excellent english and told me what type off transportation to take once I landed at Quepos ariport. He was the front desk person when I arrived too early to check in and he offered to hold my luggage in his office while at the same calling housekeeping to have them get my room ready in twenty minutes so I didn't have to wait three hours for regular 3:00 check in. Every staff person at La Sirena Hotel demonstrated this level of professionalism and courtesy: from the lady who made cook- to -order eggs at the morning breakfast (included in the price of the room) to the sweet. no-nonense older gentleman who manned the front foor at night and made sure only hotel guests entered after 9 p.m. ( I felt again like a high school girl, kissing my date goodnight on the front porch and explaining my dad's house rule: no boys allowed to visit after curfew !.) My room was perfect: air conditioner, in-room safe, dorm room refridgerator (saved me on food expenses because I could bring back lunch and dinner left-overs, no other hotel on my trip offered in-room fridge) and an abundance of soft towels. Oh, and free internet of course.

O.K., to sum up: stay at this hotel if you want high-er end hotel amenities at super affordable rates, caring English speaking staff who genuinely want your stay to be fantastic, fresh made to order eggs, fruit, pancakes and juice every morning, a lovely little pool for post-pacific relaxing, and a clean, safe, stay in Quepos, a town with great food, affordable stores (if you forgot to pack your bathing suit etc.) energetic night life, and a seventy five cent bus ride to the most visited park in Costa Rica with picture perfect beaches .

Room Tip: Interior rooms are quieter though no real view. Of course, sun down is shortly after six this clos...

Value for money good breakfast not crowed pool very safe and not seedy town as some have said. Very comfortable. Reccomend this town to stay in close to all activities not like Jaco and overrated Marriot.

This hotel doesn't look great from the outside but inside the rooms are nice, great showers and comfortable beds. The breakfast area is lovely and the breakfast was good if a little basic. The pool is great and the staff members speak good english and are friendly and helpful. Great for a budget hotel and a great location. Good wifi too, no complaints at all!
