I enjoyed 10 days at this small hotel. Prices are reasonable (if you book via third party). The location is good as its pretty close to the heart of Escazu/Santa Ana areas and doesn't take long to get through town. Complimentary coffee and the internet setup is nice. Pool and facilities also clean and cozy. You may find some ants here and there but this is what you get anywhere in Costa Rica really.
I did observe some weird behavior. I had to put a $100 CC deposit down which was returned at checkout. I oversaw an American couple get billed $400+ for the same deposit, which seemed strange. A couple of other small things made me think there were others with bad experiences here, but personally I had no issues. The kids even broke a table and a bed and they didn't charge extra for it which was rather accommodating as it seemed well within their right to do so at the time.
The only meal I ate at the hotel was breakfast, which was fine. Nothing special, but a passable version of variations of bacon/ham/eggs/cereals/toasts/juices/fruits.
Overall, while there was some reason to believe the staff might give you trouble over certain things, my experience was pleasant and accommodating and I wouldn't be too hesitant to recommend this hotel. Pretty nice!
