Small, bare but cleans room at the end of town a block from the ferry terminal. Friendly staff at the front desk. Had a small but nice pool as well. We stayed here out of necessity on our way back to San Jose from Nicoya, was great for our needs.

This was a practical stop on our way to Samara, we just drove by and decided to stop. A very good choice. Very nice rooms, within a walking distance to the beach. A family place. We enjoyed it. The person at the front desk (owner) was very helpful for directions. The best place to stop if you plan to take... More

Two nights in this hotel at the end of Jan., 2016. Is fairly ascetic (there is even a copy of the Bible to be found in the accommodation), *but*, you can tell that Canadians own the property, as there is ample and consistently pressured water available, which is "huge" for Costa Rica, *and*, try to find another decent hotel in...

As I mentioned this hotel is very close to the beach, ferry terminal and the cruise port. However it is right on the street which makes it very noisy. The rooms are spacious but the beds are very uncomfortable. The WiFi is good so is the staff very helpful! There's a small pool and they also provide free coffee in... More

Our room was dreadful, with a sink that was falling apart, a terrace door that wouldn't open, and loud trucks driving by our room very early in the morning. But if you're taking the ferry to Paquera, this hotel is just a few feet away from the ferry dock. The pool area did look pleasant, though we didn't use it,... More

The hotel was very good and the service was excellent, the only opportunities were the shower place was so small and with no support for the soap and there were no towels the first day. The rest was great and with to mention the host was very nice and helped us to get the best trip options.

I stayed only an evening here en route to the airport but, would have stayed a week. The premises were clean and very private and my room facing the pool was very nice indeed.

We loved this place!! It is right near the ferry to Tambor, and a short walk to the beach. The new pool and kids activities center is 2 mins away. They have a huge pool with lots of action for famillies. The hotel was very clean, has a nice little pool with loungers. The hotel does not have its own... More
