Needed a quick place to stay while taking a reprieve from doing business in San Jose. Booked, but didn't expect much. At first, it seemed nice. Then, I noticed the refrigerator that was rusted out and didn't work. The water that never seemed to come. The pool with scunge floating at the top. The floors that turned my feet black...

The pool area is beautiful, the rooms need to be updated, including shower and a green toilet, the balcony door didn't lock, and it smelled like a mildew. We booked a room there but we didn't feel safe and comfortable, so we left. The place has a potential.

I always had a great experience at this Hotel & Restaurant, and I enjoy the very friendly community of people working there. They will always run or do anything to make you feel comfortable plus i appreciate Paulo and don Horacio for continued outstanding service. The ample conference room upstairs fantastic for events and meetings.

This place is clean. Personel is attentive. The pictures online dont do it justice. The pool is simple and nice. The rooms can use some updating. However, breakfast is included. I'd give the food a 3.75 ;). There is two nice affordable, family friendly and affordable next to the hotel (to the right facing the beach). My elderly parents and...

Myself and my partner stayed here for a few nights as part of a two-week trip to Costa Rica. Although this was our least favourite hotel during our stay, it was perfectly adequate. There was nothing special about it but nothing awful. The breakfast varied - on one day it was a buffet with a range of foods whereas on...

Nice location with cute pool. The food was pleasant. Fresh and tasty. Waitstaff was great. Rooms are basic, linens not as clean as they should be, small balcony off sliding glass doors. No hot water in shower, just warm. AIR CONDITIONER excellence!!!

This was a huge improvement after the nightmare air bnb reservation I had. I found myself in a pinch and I needed a room quickly and I walked in and they took me. Absolutely beautiful beach views. Walking distance to everything you could want or need. Fairly priced and clean. Not customer service oriented and no elevator that I saw...

This is probably the only place we stayed on our vacation that I will avoid next time. We booked an ocean view room and when we got there they tried to put us in a little room facing the building next door. We had to go down and get the room we paid for. Got settled in and used the...

There are some definite pluses and minuses to this hotel. Pluses: great beachfront location, deck chairs and umbrellas, ample parking with daytime security, hotel is right next to police station, easy walking to dozens of cafes and restaurants. Minuses: showers barely trickle, not enough locks on our room door, no elevator (and no one offered to help with luggage). For...
