Hotel is very reasonably priced and comfortable. A good value. Rooms are large and very clean. Not luxurious but comfortable for a night or two. We stayed here the first and last nights of our Costa Rica vacation, going to the pacific in between (which was gorgeous!). Staff was nice and very helpful. The only problem was with the rental car company CR-SAVS. We rented a small SUV for the trip to the beach property where we stayed for a week. The car looked fine, but when we returned it (covered in Costa Rica dirt road dust) the rental company Rep claimed there was an area of small scratches on the rubber bumper, visable with dust in them. We would not have been able to see the pre-existing scratches in the sun, on a clean bumper, when we accepted the car. We had no problems with the car, not even a flat tire which the rep seemed surprised about (yes, the roads can be very bad--be prepared). The company is attempting to charge us $140 for several small scratches at the bottom of the RUBBER bumper of the SUV. The car was in a private space, and never left unattended during the week we had it. We are absolutely positive the scratches did not occur in our possession, and feel CR-SAVS is attempting to extort money from us. The Rep said he would call us before we left the country to let us know their position on the bumper and if they would assess a charge: we never heard from him but see the credit card charge. Think twice about using CR-SAVS for a rental car.
