I arrived with my husband and was happy with the building and location. It was what I expected. The stress began when I went into my actual apartment 32 owned by an older absentee owner named Theodoro. My husband entered the apartment and screamed "It's a dump". Here's the real deal. The apartment had good bones and could be an... More

We stayed in #13, a spacious one bed roomed unit on the first floor that was furnished and equipped to a very high standard. There was a very large balcony looking over the beautiful view t the wild forests and hills beyond. A joy to eat every meal at the large table on the patio. From our bed we looked... More

My husband and I stayed in a private residence for 10 days with our 2 & 4 yr old children. We had the best time. Georgia (who runs the hotel) was the sweetest most accommodating hostess. She or her husband were always available and super sweet. There is a small playground on site, Georgia allowed us to borrow toys and... More

This place is wonderful, but you will need a car! It's a hefty walk and/or bike ride to town. It's a 10 minute walk to the beach, but the beach is quiet. (We preferred to drive to Playa Carillo -- more scenic and even quieter!) The facility has an elevator, the condo has air conditioning in the bedroom, and the... More

We were fortunate to rent a fabulous 3 bedroom condo for 2 weeks in Jan 2012. The short walk to 2 stunning beaches: Carrillo and Samara make this an ideal location. The building is beautifully maintained. The condo is well appointed and spacious. The pool is heavenly. I believe this is without a doubt the best place to stay in... More
