Clean rooms and very friendly staff. Beautiful view from the hotel. Nice size swimming pool. Hotel offers SPA services. Rented a car from the airport to get to shopping areas, restaurants and beach. Overall it was a great experience.

My wife and I found that place via internet and we were very happy with our choice. The room on the second floor with an outdoor full kitchen gave us privacy and indolence. Unfortunately our stay was not long enough for we would have stayed at least 5 nights. Anytime going back to Costa Rica, I would go back there.

The pool was literally right off our patio and was very attractive and large enough to play around in. There were birds and large lizards on the grounds. The room was much more modern than I anticipated (though you have to remember to plug in the fridge and such when you get there as they are conservation minded). My wife... More

We had an incredible experience staying at Hotel Pumilio. The hotel is small and quaint, with beautiful rooms, outstanding staff and excellent service. The location is "off the beaten path" which was perfect. It was so quiet and peaceful.

Our room was spacious and clean. The patio was near the pool. Our outdoor kitchen was a pleasant surprise. The daily breakfast was convenient and delicious. The resort is very small so service was very personalized. The staff was friendly and always very helpful.
