You won’t get a more friendly welcome anywhere. Juri made us feel like old friends right from the minute we stepped out of the car. Our room was very clean and comfortable. It was a little hot so we paid the extra $10 for AC. It was a quick easy walk just across the road to the beach. This small...

Over the course of our 3 months in Costa Rica we visited this gem of a place many times for dinner, becoming regulars after awhile. Juri and Chiara, our hosts ( friends) could not be better at their craft. Personable and warm they catered to our tastes every time, with great meals and the best mojito I have found anywhere...

This gem is the place for you if you are looking for more than just a room in a hotel. Its value comes from the experience of joining "the family" for a drink and dinner in the open air living room/restaurant/pub after your day on the beach. "The family" consists of Juri and Chiara--the young and charismatic proprietors-- their amiable...

Reading everyone's reviews makes me miss this place! Stayed here for 3 (original) but 4 in the end in mid-Feb. Hosts were super friendly, social, and had great advise for a hidden white sand beach - ask Juri or Chiara about their secret beach! Great food for breakfast & dinner. We headed to the main tourist beaches, very close by...

This accommodation met our needs. It was cozy, clean, good price and we relaxed by the pool during the day and in the evening. Juri and Chiara were lovely hosts - they were very helpful and easy to talk to. Juri made us awesome pizza and we also dined on the swordfish - both were delicious meals. We travelled to...

This lovely, charming hotel is full of character. Juri and Chiara and their hilarious dog Pluff were so welcoming and made us feel right at home. The restauraunt serves authentic fresh home-made Italian cuisine, with a local fisherman bringing his latest catch to serve up in the evening too. Juri shared some helpful advice about the area and following his...

My girlfriends and I were travelling in Costa Rica for a week. We all met at the Nicoya bus station and ended up at Playa Garza in the dark. The bus thankfully dropped us off really close to the hotel and as we wandered into the driveway they called out "Sarah!" We were relieved to be in the right place!...

I decided that if I was going to learn spanish, I was going to do it right. I decided I would spend 2 weeks in Costa Rica and sign up to take spanish lessons.

Although I didn't stay at the hotel, I did have the pleasure of eating at the restaurant for lunch and dinner one day. Delicious pizza and wonderful hospitality from Juri and Chiara made this a little, unique gem in the middle of beautiful Costa Rica.
