Id like to start off with acknowledging the staff! Everyone we came in contact with, whether it was the restaurant staff, cleaning service staff, activities staff, management... they were all so friendly and accommodating. We had such a great time hanging out by the pool and relaxing in the sun, running across the street to the beautiful beach and enjoying...

We truly enjoyed this hotel. It's a fun, easy-going hotel. The pool has a beautiful view of the ocean. Free wi-fi a plus. Reception started out a little slow but then they were really nice waiting on us. Beach towels are very nice and included. Super reasonable prices.

As mentioned in a previous review, we've also stayed away from US chain hotels. But this is a Costa Rican hotel. Hotel grounds landscaped with native flowering plants. Room is small with some unusual features including alcove landscaped with a planter box of decorative gravel and diffenbachia plants, Full length mirror and platform bed. Room clean although musty smelling. Powerful...

Me and my family joined a group at the monkey Bar at the Best Western after Church. They have a nice little outdoor bar next to the pool with a nice view out to Playa Grande. The secret of the Best Western is the deep pool with a waterfall that you can jump off. My kids had a blast diving,...

First of all you are visiting CR; its beautiful but anything can happen..Yes there was some construction however, September and October are the only times they can do any renovations at the hotel; deal with it. If you are staying busy and being adventurous you will never notice. Its an amazing property with a fantastic vista from the pool deck...

I normally don't stay at best westerns, preferring something with a little more character, but this place was perfect. It was cheap compared to all the other places around, was only a block off the beach and has a nice pool with a bar in it. Room was small but clean and comfortable. Best available for the price.
