Having family scattered around the U.S., we decided to book 7 rooms for the post-Christmas to New Year's holiday for a family reunion. We filled out the necessary paperwork, secured the rooms with credit card "deposits." Then, at the last moment, we got an email from the manager saying the management decided to cancel ALL our room reservations and was blocking the whole hotel during the Christmas holiday. In other words, tough luck to you guys, I've got a better offer. I was upset & stunned, as the Christmas holidays are a big deal in Costa Rica, and reservations are hard to come by. In other words, I wouldn't book anything at this hotel. They do not honor their commitments, and if something better comes along, they grab it, and you're left out in the cold.
