If you are and AC fan and can't leave without it, this is not your place and then again I don't know if you should come here at all. If you love nature, this place conserves all of the beauty and charm of this beautiful area within its own walls. The people are supper friendly, the rooms are clean and... More

We stayed here in 2015. My wife and the kids stayed here en route to San Jose and we were not very pleased with the rooms or service. To start the room they initially put us in was small and had three beds. We complained and received a two bed room which was ok. The rooms don't have air conditioning,... More

The welcome I received from the receptionist was the best in Costa Rica! She went to great lengths to inform me about the hotel and area, enquired as to how I was enjoying my trip and arranged a welcome drink. The hotel is comfortable and clean though possibly a little 'tired' in places. The food was good with generous portions.... More

We stayed for two nights, during our round-trip in Costa Rica. The room was tiny, but OK. The was no aircon or fan, but a small balcony with multiple doors - including one made of net, so that was quite OK. The shower was very good. Breakfast was stingy - I missed plentyness. We had dinner one night in the... More

Here's what great about this property: inn keeper, grounds/landscaping, pool area, breakfast included, within walking distance to other shops/restaurants Here's what not so great: the beds (so uncomfortable), no/faulty air conditioning, no bar in pool area, spa services (very disappointing) It's not that this property didn't try-the inn keeper went above and beyond making us feel comfortable, but the room...

We stayed for 2 night during our costa rica roundtrip. The hotel is fine, has clean rooms, an enormous amount of hot water from the douche, wifi in the room, ac, safety box. The only thing missing was a fridge. The hot jacuzzi is a nice relief after a day of hiking and they provide pool towels. The breakfast is... More

The rooms were clean and average size but more than adequate . There is no AC but totally not necessary as there seemed to be a wonderful breeze and great cross ventilation. The only drawback is that this is on a main road and trucks come by very early in the AM. There is a safe in the room but... More

The hotel staff here, especially the manager Gito, made me feel like I had been friends with him for years even though I'd just met him. The location of the hotel is perfect for those who want to be able to walk downtown but have a quiet place to relax during their stay. I really enjoyed the patio by the... More
