I loved this hotel! Location is excellent, one of the best in Tortuguero owing to it's proximity to the beach. It's a short walk to the national park and the shops but far enough away to not feel on top of the more touristy part of town and very quiet at night, truly relaxing. The hotel it's self is clearly basic as you would expect from the room price, but the staff are very helpful and friendly (even arranged for us to be met in cariari and escorted for the final bus and boat journey which was great as we got lots of local knowledge before we even arrived and saw so much wildlife on the boat!). The room was clean and no problems with water at all while we were there (unlike other parts of costa rica). The breakfast was tasty and there are nice areas to sit in hammocks and listen to the sound of the ocean and outside each room to sit and relax after days wildlife spotting in the national park. I loved my stay here and would recommend it to anyone wanting a more local feel or a cheaper option.
