Our last hotel on a week long, three hotel stay in Costa Rica and it was wonderful. After Jaco beach and Arenal, this boutique sweet spot, with its plush beds and renovated amenities was more than welcome. Not to mention the price, at $35/night was outstanding.
We are not the type of vacationers that book a hotel to spend time in the room, but again, after a week hiking, horseback riding, beach and hot springs going, this was a welcome retreat to enjoy a beautiful view with a glass of wine, on our porch (room 27) in the evening with nothing in mind but Pura Vida.
Yes, they are under construction. According to their front desk staff, the third level expansion is set to be done in a month, with an additional wing coming some time next year. But in the mean time, the construction ends early (5pm, and you should be out exploring anyway!), it is close to SO many restaurants, and the pool is great.
BIG plus- we woke up early while we were there and there was not coffee yet. We asked if they would mind brewing for us, and they gave us our own machine for the room. I'm sure that is not standard practice, but the accommodation was very nice. AND they were available for room service on additional bottles of wine WELL in to the night.
Other plus- Free wifi, smart TV's (including Netflix), free int'l calling, iron and safe.
Only down side (beside construction, for the time being)- The guy with the pony tail (didn't catch a name) at the front desk, could not seem to be bothered. While waiting for the gate to open every time, we had to detour around to the front door, in the car, to get his attention. Even after buzzing!!!
