Stayed two nights in December. Safe, pretty, central location. A couple of great restaurants close by for dinner. Breakfast is included with copious amounts of coffee. Service from the team is exceptional - they really cannot do enough for you, and the bonus, as in most parts of Costa Rica is there are bilingual speakers everywhere, both Spanish and English.
The room - stayed in the Ginsberg room (room 9) - small room, single very comfy bed, awesome shower, nice breeze as has two window aspects up top. I have heard from people staying here with me that the larger rooms are really quite nice. The communal areas are really quite funky, with lots of nice little touches.
I didn't mark this as 5 stars purely because my room was the "box room" of the hotel. However, I have already pre-booked for my last night before flying out home.. so it has already served it's purpose!
