My wife, son and I stayed here a couple nights recently while traveling for two week by rental car around the Northwest and West of Costa Rica. We loved this place! GREAT location, really nice owners (French and Ukranian), and very laid back and relaxed atmosphere. If we hadn't wanted to see the rest of of the national parks and the other sights around the country, we would have stayed a lot longer. The room had a nice loft and the secure parking lot was helpful. Henry the guy behind the bar was super cool. We were steps from some nice restaurants and shopping.
Only a couple of considerations: there wasn't any internet computer at the hotel (they have wireless, but I was traveling without my PC this time) - the good news was that there was a cheap, accessible internet cafe about 4 doors down. Also, there is no pool - of course the ocean is on your front doorstep, so for us it wasn't a problem...
All in all, we'd really recommend this place and will try to come back again!
