Cute, secluded but with personality. Room was clean and had air con. Shower was a bit unruly but nothing that would ruin your stay. Nice typical breakfast included. Can walk to the beach. If the sun didn't exhaust you the hotel has a bar attached which had live music on Friday. My friends complained it keep them up until midnight.... More

We happened to be here during an unseasonably hot time. We rented a villa, but the only A/C unit was a wall unit in the bedroom, so the rest of the villa was basically unusable because of the heat. We ended up switching rooms. Also, there are probably not many times during the year that the loft is usable. There... More

The place is a nice, small hotel with clean rooms, great pool, restaurant/bar, and very friendly and accommodating staff. The rooms were poolside, large and comfortable, with air conditioning, wifi, and TV. I... More

When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by the very nice staff. We had a poolside room which was very spacious and clean and had a flatscreen tv and a fridge. The bathroom was very nice too.

Clean, peaceful place. What I was looking for in one of my favourite beaches in Guanacaste! Delicious breakfast; coffee, gallo pinto, toasts and eggs. We stayed at a small room, but closer to the beach are the villas and they look beautiful. Will definitely come back.
