The short guy at the reception desk was not helpful and the only thing he would say to us when we asked him about something is that it is full; this included all activities we inquired about and the hotel in general, which the only other guests we saw while there were some construction workers. The manager was much more helpful and is the only reason were able to book any activities while visiting. We were told the Night Walk was full, but when we were supposed to meet before departing, there was nobody there. This experience will ensure we will never visit Sarapiqui if we return to Costa Rica, we feel it was a waste of time.
The hotel does have a Jungle feel as you walk to the room with the exotic hard wood floors, but never leave the light in the room on, otherwise it will be an invasion of bugs. The pool needs to be continuously cleaned for bugs.
