We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel, though it is very basic in its amenities (hot water was hit and miss and the shower was fairly primitive). It's definitely not a "luxury experience" but that wasn't what we were looking for. The hotel was charming, the rooms were scrupulously clean and the owner, Mario, was delightful. Very helpful, with lots of advice about which activities we should try, he also made us a fantastic "typical" Costa Rican dinner one night for a very reasonable price (I think about $8 US per person) when we were too exhausted to head out to a restaurant. Homemade breakfast was also included in the rate, and the hotel has a lovely garden and a small pool. It even has a playground where our kids spent a few happy hours after dinner swinging and watching the fascinating antics of the leaf-cutter ants that were systematically destroying a nearby bush.
