We stayed in the Playa Negra cottage in June 2013. The bathrooms smelled really bad, particularly the south bathroom, where the toilet seat was cracked. In general, the bathrooms were not particularly clean. There was a dead gecko on the small bed in the north bedroom. The pillow to that bed also smelled bad. The bedding generally was not fresh. The plastic cover under the pillow cases made me feel like I was sleeping on bubble paper. When I arrived and stepped out of the car, there was a big steaming dog turd right next to my foot in the driveway. The property has a large dog that the manager, Sean, failed to clean up after. Finally, the ants. In the middle of the night there was an attack of big black ants. They crawled all over and under our bed, including under the Mosquito netting. When I brought Sean to the room and showed him, he offered us another room, but it too was crawling with ants.
Ultimately, my wife and I got into bed with our boys in their cramped beds and spent a miserable night. We left after that first night. Over the past two years, I've spent six weeks in Costa Rica and never once left a hotel early...until now.More
