A couple of miles outside of town, at the end of a muddy road surrounded by local family houses and a few dogs! The actual hotel is great. Nice , clean, comfortable rooms with AC. No storage space and the pool is funky and tiny. However this is a small tourist level hotel and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice little reception, dining , bar area that acts as the centre of the hotel. There are as many Ticos staying here as Americans and you get to meet everyone. The quiet beach is 200' away but it is a lengthy walk along the beach into town and the action but perhaps that is what you want? Good value .
