The hotel is located in a nearby neighborhood which I did not think was going to be so safe, but they have private parking and a gate. The bungalows were nice and confortable. The staff was very friendly. The breakfast that was included was delicious and just enough to get us started. It was located close to the airport which helped if you wanted to stay close by the first night or even your last night in Costa Rica. The only downfall was that it was a very noisy night. The cars and motorcycles going by at night were loud. Also there were a lot of barking dogs throughout the night and morning. Besides that it was a nice place to stay for our last night in Costa Rica. It was perfect for getting to the airport.
