“Friendly and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2006

We enjoyed our stay here. It was located centrally. We stayed a week, with a two-day trip to Jaco. Lira, the owner’s mother was extremely helpful. Breakfast was great, and they even provided me a place to put my rental car at night, across the street for the B&B. I would return here. The neighborhood is away from tourists, which I loved! Rooms were comfortable.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2005

We had a pretty nice stay at this bed and breakfast for two nights. It was no more than 10 minutes from the airport($2.00 fare which was included in the price.) The staff was very nice and extremely accomadating. they helped some newbies get through some tocuh decisions about transportation. The room was pretty tiny, but for $40 a night it really didn't matter. The bathroom was nice with decent hot water. The common area included a TV a variety of guide books, magazines and even a few games. The breakfast that was included was super nice and included fruit, toast, eggs to order, tea, coffee and juice. The location was close to the central market and bus terminals that made it all the more affordable to stay in already inexpensive area. Tourists were to a minimum and a lot of the city life of Costa Rica can be explored in this the second biggest city in the country.
