Previous reviews were correct stating that the staff are very friendly and always smiling; but this is where the good stuff ends. We booked a room for 2 nights at the end of our month long trip, and thought it would be nice to relax by the pool for a couple days at a "resort". The website doesn't tell you... More

Manager was very helpful and friendly. Helped us eat gluten free. A guard watches the cars all night and the car gate is closed. Hot water for shower and a better than average free breakfast. One of the best hotels during our 21 day vacation

Nice property just outside of Limon. Right on the beach, great pool, restaurant/bar and a free breakfast. Rooms are good with AC, which was a must for me. Best part was the staff and Diana. It was my first time in CR and I had a bunch of questions and a few travel problems she helped me out with. Really... More

I needed a place to stay for one night and this was a great choice near Limon. The hotel is rustically beautiful, and right on a quiet patch of beach a couple miles south of town. The owner was very friendly, helpful, and gracious. Room was simple, but clean and comfortable. Parking was secure. Breakfast was included and was delicious.... More

The interesting thing about our experience is that we only got to spend a few hours in the hotel, but that's all you really need to sum up an experience. Due to some unfortunate circumstances, our journey to the hotel was delayed by some hours. However the hotel staff was very accommodating and left a reservation slip with the guard... More
