rm #6 . kitchen had no soap for dishes ( we were in the rm with a kitchen, but it was a terrible kitchen , could not see at nite due to low wattage bulb in the only light in the ceiling fan) refrig was dirty , no dish towels , dead bugs and dirt in cabinets , 2 burner cook top was loose and not secured to cabinet top and Greasy , no toiletries , just TP, in bath room and thats it. no breakfast, no one there 24 hours. pool was dirty , booked for a week , and checked out after 4 nites and moved to a better place. not sure where the 4.5 rating came from ( note alot of reviews were from several years ago) you will not be satisfied , trust me it is not as good as the reviews show. only decent thing we got was internet. PERIOD
1. Booked villa for 6 with kitchenette but it is simply an old fridge and a gas stove located outside the cabin. Worn beds, very old plastic table.. No utensils at all to cook and just 2 knives, 3 forks, 2 spoons, 4 cups, 3 glasses....(for a reservation for 6...) 2. No toilet paper (are you kidding!), when asked gave me a half used opened roll. 3. After heavy rain toilets were not working, probably due to poor drainage installation 4. Swimming pool not adequately cleaned 5. Gardens not well maintained 6. Just one staff at front desk with not enough experience 7. Restaurant closed. My overall impression: hotel may be under low booking and was not investing enough in regular running staff operations. They need to decide if they need close the hotel for a while or if they really want to be ready for guests.... The hotel cost is below average in the area... but.... for saving some few money per night we really had a terrible experience. The cost:benefit ratio of this hotel is bad. Decided to leave that same day and owner/manager was not friendly at all, returned our money without apologies or any consideration to our terrible experience.…
We decided to stay the night in Ojochal recently, and picked Diquis Del Sur because we had visited it 5 years back and remembered how impressive it was. It was nicer than we remembered, and the plants and trees are stunning. Many fruit trees were in production. You could spend hours walking around the property if you are interested in plants or birds. The cabin was simple yet very clean and comfortable, and air conditioning wasn't needed. The patio of the cabin was a nice spot to sit and relax. The Tico style breakfast was delicious, as was the coffee. It was some of the best gallo pinto that we've had. If you are looking for a reasonably placed location with private cabins, beautiful grounds and a delicious breakfast, Diquis Del Sur may be perfect.
We were unhappy with our villa. We thought we booked with kitchenette. Might be our mistake. But compared to other villas in this area, this place needs an update. One matras was totally worn out, no back support. Some electricity switches not ok. The house just felt unclean. A refrigerator outside, but totally worn-out. Reception was friendly as well as the parrot. We managed to make a deal and cancel the second night.
I had booked a two-night stay at a different nearby hotel, but wasn't able to stay there because they were unexpectedly temporarily closed so they booked me at Diquis Del Sur. The staff at Diquis Del Sur were super friendly and nice. The room was adequate--no TV, no AC, and the mattress seemed thin and well-worn, as I could feel the bedsprings and it wasn't the most comfortable. Wifi didn't work in the room, but it worked at the pool and restaurant areas. I was hoping Diquis Del Sur would have a full restaurant so I wouldn't have to drive for dinner, but I found some nearby places to eat. I did get a beer and drink at Diquis Del Sur to hang at the pool and watch the sunset from the upper deck. Breakfasts were fine. I loved the mix of music they played--songs I hadn't heard for years and some new ones, too.…
We loved the staff, the host . the grounds, the breakfast( sooo good)..the parrot...the kitten with no name Our room was VERY basic....very warm no it was HOT...clean...fans didn't help much. It has a convenient location...and we consider the staff, host..breakfast and the property well worth the stay.
We really loved this place. Beautiful garden, very friendly staf, great breakfast, comfortable bungalow, swimming pool, birds all over the place. Just a small drive away from beautiful beaches, 10 minutes drive from uvita where we saw over 10 whales..
We arrived on 3/10/2018 in the afternoon. In general, the place is nice with lots of green areas and they even have fruit trees for you to enjoy. Rooms are ok, nothing fancy. But I did find a few things I did not feel comfortable with: 1- I payed extra money for A/C which was not working in one of the rooms. Luckily, they agreed on a refund as i payed extra for the A/C. However, they did not offer us an extra fan instead of the faulty A/C, and trust me you need a fan in that place as it is very hot in there. 2- Room was dusty. It was everywhere, under the bed, in the sheets, in the furniture, in the windows, in the ceiling. I mean, I was expecting a bit of dust as this place is located in the woods, but the room sure looked kind of dirty. 3-The sheets on every bed had stains and i am certain they are very very old. Some had holes and smelled like somebody else used them the day before. 4-The restaurant is not open all day. And you have to reserve if you want to eat there at night. Only wish they mention that when I booked, or when I checked in. On the bright side, everyone was friendly, breakfast was tasty and the place is near beaches and waterfalls. Place is a bit pricey though. I would have expected more attention to details for that kind of money.…
Possibly the best place we have stayed in Costa Rica. Beautiful setting but the rooms vary with price. We had booked the cheapest which costs 55 US dollars a night (rooms 9a and b which share a kitchen). We decided this was too dark and small so moved to room 8 which was 95 dollars a night. Much bigger and lighter with a terrace with great views. The gardens are lovely and the pool area good. The hotel dog, Wendy, is very friendly. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Safe deposit if you hand stuff in at reception.
We arrived as the sun was setting for a one night stay. We had a 4 x 4 rented to get here, but I think a standard vehicle should be able to handle it. We had a two bedroom villa without kitchen. The villa was clean and to a 3 star motel standard which suited our needs. This was an affordable stay for a group of 5. The grounds were pretty and I wish I had more time to explore them. My daughter enjoyed the pool and we were able to order a light dinner. Good English was spoken by our greeter/waiter. Breakfast was good and we appreciated the move up in time by 15 minutes so that we could go zip lining and still have breakfast. I would happily return, but stay a few more nights to better enjoy this hidden gem.
