San Vito, Costa Rica3 contributions
I love this hotel !!! Excellent room and very friendly staff. I've stayed here twice and both times I got a room that opens onto the pool area. You are less than 10 steps away from the beach with the most beautiful sunsets you can imagine! Breakfast is included but we ate dinner at the hotel restaurant as well. The food is superb !!! I will definitely be staying here again and again and again!!!

Very nice and clean room with a 2 minute walk to the beach. Amazing surfing (they offer rentals) and super friendly staff. If you have a chance, try and have a conversation with Josh! Super friendly guy who has lots of local connections and got us great deals on the best local experiences and provided information as to where to go for a good time. Whatever you need, Josh is the plug. Pura Vida 👊

The manager Ms. Hammer is a saint and deserves a raise!!! As a rookie traveler I made several ridiculous mistakes. First I was trying to change the dates on my reservation at this beautiful hotel and accidentally canceled a nonrefundable reservation. I rebooked the reservation immediately with the new dates hoping that they would waive the first one. Then I got to the airport without realizing that my passport had expired four weeks prior. I had just used it to go to Washington State and was busy dealing with all the Covid related issues. Epic mistakes on my part! Then I thought the hotel charged me for both reservations. It was Expedia not the hotel. Right now I am waiting for the Hotel and Expedia to negotiate an appropriate payment on my part. Expedia wants me to pay full fee for both reservations after they already said I didn’t have to. This is NOT the hotels fault. So now I am waiting for Expedia to call Ms. Hammer to decide what is appropriate in regards to payment. The manager Ms. Hammer has been very very very patient with me and I am eternally grateful for her patience. Go to Hotel South Beach! And be careful with virtual chat on Expedia.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Small hotel right on the beach, with a pool. I couldn’t have asked for more for the money I don’t think. Hotel has a small restaurant and bar. Everything in town closes at 9 so we did some late night swims and security and hotel employees were nice about that and didn’t kick us out of the pool. Overall a amazing time!

Booked a room and was not told about the pre-planned highway closure. Was promised and assured that I could have used the night I paid for on a different day in the near future instead of a refund. When I tried to call in and stay I was greeted with an incredibly rude staff and combative tone. I was never given the night I paid for and I was refused a discount. A great combination of deceit and unprofessionalism. Beware. Sidenote- They do not answer the phones often- They hang up- Booked through booking.com- no mention of highway closures ( which is a weekly occurrence )
