We sort of stumbled onto Melrost, and I feel like we were very lucky to have found such a wonderful place! After staying in a couple of "hotels" that were much more like hostels with shoddy plumbing, this was such a treat.
Rather than a classic sterile hotel room, we stayed in what was actually a full on apartment-- and one much nicer than my tiny studio in Nyc!
It was absolutely gorgeous-- immaculate, and well maintained, but felt a lot cozier than your average hotel. The couple who own this place were an absolute delight, and took such good care of us. They seem to really care about making the trip a success for us, and it felt wonderful to have such personal care. Speaking of great service --no crappy continental breakfast here -- you choose the time (!) and they will deliver to your room (!!) a tray of eggs, fresh fruit, and toast. You also have a coffee maker and a refrigerator for any late night snacking you might want to do.
My trip to Costa Rica was one of my favorite vacations, and I think in large part, due to the Melrost. It was far and away nicer than any of the other hotels we stayed at in a similar price range, and the personal service and beautiful space made me feel like a super star. I would love to go back again soon!
