“A nicer more authentic place you can not find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The hotel owners are so personal and friendly. The balcony area allows one to surf the internet (wireless) with a backdrop of howler monkey sounds. The beach is only about 300 meters away. A supermarket is next door. This town is not like the beach resort areas of Costa Rica. It is more personal - get to know the people and be richly rewarded. The food at the hotel is terrific (we had Casados every night which outshined Casados that we had in other areas).
Stay here, you won't regret it if you are looking for a low key authentic experience. If you're looking for a fancy resort and only being "served", go to playa flamingo.
Also, Curu wildlife reserve is awesome! So is playa blanco (hike the 5km to an amazing beach!)
