We spent two weeks in Costa Rica, the pillows at this facility for that one night were the most comfortable pillows we had our entire stay. Our room was... More

A very nice place, with a great staff and breakfast is very good. Location is good, near downtown but not IN it. Only problem I ever have there (and I've stayed many times) is the slowness and unreliability of the Internet. Other than that, it's excellent!

I have stayed here multiple times and never had a bad experience. Is located in a residential area and very quiet. Its close to a few places to eat and there is a park within walking distance. The staff is very nice and helpful.

This hotel is affordable, clean, cozy and has great staff and breakfast. The pool is beautiful and there are second floor verandas with lots of seating for anyone. Wasn't t able to book the free and 5.00 transportation to and from the airport because of time. Taxi will cost 34.00USD from airport.

Great location, wonderful breakfast, knowledgeable staff, good steak restaurant a block away. Give hotel 24 hour notice if using $5.00 shuttle to airport! They also sell local crafts by indigenous folks that are a great deal I wish I had taken advantage of.

The rooms were clean, they include fridge, stove and cookware. The rooms are worth way more that what you pay for. Excellent breakfast with many options. The location is very centric and in a safe neighborhood.
