We recently stayed here passing through Arenal to Samara. Jose was WONDERFUL and was by far the best host we had all trip. He really made the stay special there. The hotel was an EXCELLENT value - I wasnt expecting too much - but was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were good sized, although the bathroom was small - but plenty of warm water. He had many suggestions on where to go for food as well as activities. We went to the Sabor Tica down the street that he recommended and it was easily the BEST typical food we had all of our trip. Don't miss the guanabana and papaya milkshakes for less than $2! I highly recommend this hotel. Thanks again Jose for making our stay wonderful here.
