We loved everything! The room is great and the bed is one of the best we had in Costa Rica. Brigitte is great! She gave us the tip to have dinner at the Mexican just 1 minute walk. The food was amazing. The pool is also very welcoming. We really would recommend this place!

We had a great time in this nice lodge. The kids enjoyed the pool even more than the ocean. It’s a wonderful place to relax and the center of town is only a few minutes walking away. Breakfast was wonderful. The Honesty-Bar was a nice touch, where you could buy drinks and snacks.
