Note to TripAdvisor: This hotel is now called "Paradise Hotel and Casino." There may be an "El Sabanero" down the coast, I believe, but the hotel described here is on a hill 5 blocks from Flamingo Beach. I tried to leave a review under the current business name, but there is no page for it. Now, the review: We really... More

This hotel suffers from lack of detail. Allow me to explain: The good: price is good and the hotel does have a great ocean view. The So-so: most everything fits here. Food is not great, but not bad either, just food, kinda forgettable. There are tons of missing details that in and of themselves are not important but when you... More

This was the first (and only) place I found in Costa Rica that I felt like I got true value for my money. You are nickled and dimed everywhere in Costa Rica and that isn't even taking into consideration that everything is overpriced to begin with. We showed up looking for a place and they gave us a great room... More

The first impression you get of this hotel is the up hill slope and the crowded car park where our rented car was dented. The reception people seem clueless at all times but eventually they deliver.

Can't complain about a thing. Our server, Charlie was very accommodating and friendly. Upon his recommendation we started off with 4 different types of ceviche which were served with plantain chips. All of them were delicious. The 4 fish dishes that we shared were awesome as well. Rice with Octopus, Sea Bass, Lobster, and Mahi Mahi were great and more... More

We stayed in room 503. It is now called Paradise Dream Hotel and Casino. First, I'd like to admit I'm a lighter sleeper and work night shift. The receptionist, Shirley, when we arrived and left was fabulous. She and our waiter, Charlie, were the only ones deserving of any stars. She was kind and allowed me to try some Spanish,... More

This is an interesting place. Wonderful views, private beach, nice gardens. The stairs to the beach have been renovated and there is some major ongoing work to render the outside of the building more appealing. Unfortunately there are several caveats.
