The place is off the main road (triangle). Receptionist Ro was friendly and our basic room with private bathroom on top floor and glass front wall was clean and served our needs.

This hotel was recommended to me by a friend and it did not disappoint. The room was well equipped and comfortable and the room and bathroom were very clean. Breakfast was included in the room price and was cooked fresh at the time that you wanted it (within the allotted breakfast hours) The views from the communal areas were amazing...

The owner provided us with good information about tours, restaurants and everything else we wanted to know. His recommendations were always on target and we had a great time during our stay. We even stayed longer than we had planned. The hostel is nice and the common areas are spacious. We stayed in a double room (shared bathroom) upstairs, which...

Okay first of all let me say, Ru is a great guy! He is so nice and hooked us up with everything we needed! I was traveling solo and met tons of other awesome backpackers there from all over the world! The free breakfast was great and good views of the valley and mountains! Stay Here you won't regret it

The double bed was average comfortable. The bathroom was small but clean and the shower had hot water. The common kitchen was well...

The rooms were clean, affordable, and accommodating, but the most memorable aspect is the spectacular view. I truly felt like I was looking over a rainforest and it made my experience more enjoyable. :)

We were thrilled with our stay at Cabinas Vista Al Golfo. What great prices for amazing quality! We had a private bedroom and bathroom that were just right and a great size. The patio overlooking the cloud forest can't be beat! Enjoy the view from a table or a hammock. The kitchen had everything you could need and was a...
