“Good food, friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We stopped in and had lunch/dessert/drinks and a swim. The owner was very friendly – a gracious host. We enjoyed playing with her cute little dog. The food was good, drinks were good. Service was a bit slow because I think she was making everything from scratch herself, but we were in no rush, so it was no problem! She mentioned that it was slow season and so she invited us to have a swim which was a very nice added bonus. We had crepes, sandwiches, cocktails, all really good food.

“Prosciutto in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Best food we had in Costa Rica. When you order an Italian salad, you get wonderfully fresh greens and olives garnished with perfectly sliced prosciuttto. Are you kidding? Take a look at where you are on the map. And do NOT leave without at least one order of french fries: Some of the best we've had anywhere. Fresh, hot, and perfectly crispy and salted on the outside, firm and tasty inside. Fish with wine sauce is outstanding. The ambiance is delightfully campy, and the view to the beach across the pool is perfect. When we ordered an appetizer plate, we got another stack of prosciutto with the cheese and olives, and delicious cream cheese and walnut stuffed dates! Carola is a delight and a very very good chef. Loki and Kardoes only make the whole experience more warm and friendly. Pura Vida indeed.

“Wonderful oasis on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

Great people, visitors from all over the world, clean, great food and kind owners. The bugalows are airy and ample. Chicken with pineapple was to die for. The menus had a nice variety of choices and the stay included breakfast: eggs, breads, fruit, coffee, tea, jams, honey, juice. Definitely an ample and varied start to the day.
