Stayed here for 5 nights toward the end of my stay in Costa Rica. Breakfast is included with a choice of 4 different options, which is unusual in smaller hotels (most serve the "Tipico" breakfast of eggs, gallo pinto and toast).
The hotel is situated at the southern end of the beach, opposite the horse field, which is about 700m away from the main street. This is not a problem, as unlike a lot of other places in Costa Rica, the whole town is on flatground. The beach is 350m away, just around the horse field.
The rooms are in good order with a great shower, very efficient A/C and TV. They can get a little noisy, with the road adjacent and the ever present cockrels behind the hotel letting their presence be known, at most times of the day. As others have already mentioned, the rooms have tinted glass windows and door looking onto the balcony/walkway, which can make it less private than those with solid walls and an opaque door; they do, however, have black out curtains, which also help to keep the rooms cool.
The pool is an absolute dream, with a jacuzzi function available, to shake out the cobwebs in the morning.
The staff, particularly Daniella and Christina, were utterly helpful. Having found I could not get a "gringo" bus back to San Jose, they helped me organise a taxi at the cheapest price available. Thank you, I made it!
All this at a really competitive price would make it a good choice to stay.
