This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we were delighted with the greeting provided by the hotel management and staff when we stayed during early July 2013. The breakfast is very tasty and fresh and is a combination of self serve with a choice of hot food too. We found the rooms to be spacious and very clean, with nice crisp bed linen which I really like. Our bedroom overlooked the private rear garden, which is full of tropical flowers we never see in the UK ! The new owner Francisco was helpful with information about Central America and CR specifically. The rooms are probably ready for a quick makeover, but confident this will happen. Most helpful was David who is the Assistant Manager and found time to explain and book some great local restaurants and entertainment. Finally, almost everything is walking distance from the Hotel, including down town markets or upscale restaurants.
