Tamarindo, Costa Rica
Reviewed January 4, 2016

I booked this hotel through Hotwire's Hot Rate hotel deals for 3 days over the Christmas holidays. Despite some warnings about the location and general safety in the neighborhood, our family of 5 decided to make the most of the trip. I very quickly realized that my concerns were completely overblown. We arrived during late evening and needed some refreshments....

The hotel is located near one of the town squares, in the rest is not very good location. The rooms are large and clean but cold at night. Breakfast is varied and generous. The staff is very friendly and willing to help you if you have a problem somehow.

Houston, Texas
Reviewed January 1, 2016

The hotel has a less than welcoming exterior, facade looks stained and worn. The Executive room we rented was clean. However, most disconcertingly, we found our door ajar three times upon our return from breakfast or sightseeing-this despite confirming we had pulled the door firmly shut/locked when we left. Brought this to the attention of front desk, who checked out...

My company has this as an airline crew hotel. Before going I read many reviews. They made it sound like it was quite a walk from a more bustling downtown (20 min). It is not. It's more like 5 minutes to get to the edge of the downtown core proper. You simply exit the front of the hotel, turn left...
