We stayed here for a week and found the grounds and room to far exceed expectations for the price we paid. A gentleman working there named Warren was particularly kind and looked out for us a number of times. He actually helped us attend a local festival in Parrita(which we never would have heard of otherwise) and was a real pleasure to talk to in general. Warren actually played a huge role in our trip and he gave us many great memories. Another man working the desk Pablo, helped us organize day trips and find good prices for the things we wanted to do. Make the effort to talk to the staff as they have so much great insight. The location is great because it is close enough to Jaco (the tourist city) that you can take a quick drive over (less than 15 min) and enjoy the events there, but also far enough away that the beach in front of the hotel is practically deserted (we went in February so this probably had something to do with it as well). If there is something that could be improved, it would be the breakfast portions (found them to be a little small). Either way would definitely recommend staying here because of its great price, location, and friendly staff. I am looking forward to returning!
