I stayed here for 3 nights in mid June as part of an Intrepid Adventure trip. The hotel staff were so lovely from beginning to end, the rooms were really clean, ours did not have a mirror and was very small but I saw a few friends rooms and theirs were much bigger so if you get a small twin room just ask for a bigger one. I asked for extra hangers and pillows and got them immediately even though the hotel was really busy.
The hotel recycles which was a definite plus for me. There is also free internet with 3 pcs in the lobby.
In addition the food in the restaurant was excellent. I had a delicious filet mignon, fries, pepper sauce and grilled onions for about $12-14 and it was sooooo deliciious. I would have eaten in the restaurant the next night except we were at the Baldi hot springs. I was really disappointed!
For the budget travellers out there there is a great laundrette directly across the street from the hotel and laundry is done in about 2 hours.
Also, shop around for trips to Baldi hot springs, Arenal etc. as the prices really vary even though everyone goes to the same place...
In conclusion, i think this hotel is an absolute winner.
