first thing was there was No lamp shade on lamp between beds and lamp didn't work. The shower drains slowly. Old 19 inch tube TV. Bed was poor but not the worst that I have had on this trip. Don't stay here...I would keep looking!

The rooms are basic but fine, im glad we could use the bigger morgans cove casino reaort for the pool as the pool in the central one wasn't the best. Overall we found the staff quite unhelpfull and rude, a smile goes a long way!! When trying to book an airport transfer we had to try 3 times! We also... More

The location of this hotel is perfect. It is right off of the main strip where restaurants, bars and shops are located, along with tour companies and car rental agencies. The beach is only about a block walk. The room was very quiet and clean enough, and the property is very nice. The bed wasn't very comfortable, but I was... More

I went here with a group of six girls during a study abroad trip for the weekend, and we all loved it! Our room was decent (not the nicest thing in the world but they fixed our clogged toilet right away and overall it was nice having kitchen and ac), and the grounds are beautiful. We loved the pool and... More

This is a wonderful property with a very courteous and professional staff that I will certainly visit again. Everyone treated me like royalty and were very helpful with tours and fishing trips. The restaurant is second to none with a varied menu of freshly prepared food. Bill

The hotel is really very nice - it is like a tropical garden (don't mix it with Morgan's Cove Casino!). The personal was very friendly. The rooms were basic but very convinient and clean. The usual costa-rican breakfast consisted as always from some fruits +coffee + toast + butter - not very much for a usual European - so be... More

In the most basic room, everywhere around the world there is a little refrigerator. In our room, no refrigerator. And when we asked for it, the hotel did not have one on that day because someone else was using it and if we wanted one on the next day, we had to pay 6$ per day!!! (usually it is included)....

For budget travellers who don't like the size and noise of a typical all-inclusive, this place is a bit of a find. The grounds surrounding the lovely pool are gorgeous, and the nearby shaded hammocks are a total bliss-out. You're never more than a hop and skip from your room, so it's more like staying at a friend's country retreat... More
