We were running late after taking the ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya and needed a place to stay on our way to the Northern Pacific beaches. So we stayed here without checking online first.

When we first arrived there was...

It was gross. They moved to another room. Went into my room and it looked ok. Went into the bathroom and there were large ants...

We stayed here one night in early February enroute to Playa Carrillo. Very pleasant grounds with pool and restaurant. Rooms are air conditioned and spacious. Easily accessible and just a short drive from the center of Nocoya.
