“Average hotel”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

I stayed here with 2 more people for one night. It's a bit overpriced according to our findings on similar hotels but it's clean. A/C is noisy and the dogs won't stop barking. Food in the restaurant is ok, so you can eat there with no issues. For locals it might be a little overpriced, but still no problem. In general, an average hotel that you can use as a walk-in guest.

The bar is probably the best attribute of the Samoa....the rooms are overpriced and the food is only mediocre at best. There is plenty of shade so it a good place to go for a swim.during the daytime. Later at night evolves into more of a singles bar but beware of hustlers

Room Tip: For singles,,,it is a good place to meet as it is directly across the street from a popular disocot...

Located on the main road in Golfito, with ample parking, a large open air restaurant, pool, and spacious comfortable rooms. This hotel is just a little above my normal price point but it was raining cats and dogs when I got to Golfito and the taxi was able to pull up under the large restaurant so I could get my pack out without soaking it. This was beyond a downpour. It was very humid during my visit and the A/C was a welcome respite. I ate twice in the restaurant where the food was reasonably priced and excellent quality.

The rooms are clean, the staff is responsive and courteous, and shower has plenty of hot water. This hotel is intended to provide an option for the shoestring budgeter visiting Golfito and it does just that. The restaurant and bar area is much the same - good food, good service, pretty cheap. You're essentially paying a 1-star price for a 3-star experience.

The view, location and staff are very nice. The rooms are horrible. You can not turn on the fan independently of the lights and the AC works poorly. Finally we unscrewed the lightbulbs so we could have the fan on. Dogs were barking, the walls are so thin you could hear the TV next to us. The room is in major need of renovation. We had a fruit plate for breakfast with about 3 refills of coffee and they charged us for each refill. If this is rated 2 out of 8 hotels in Golfito I hate to see what 8 is like.

This hotel is the best place to stay at this region. The location is beautiful. It faces the sea. There is a nice swimming pool at this hotel which offers a perfect relaxing time while you are here. The environment is completely peaceful. You have a feeling of safety while you are at this serene place. The food is excellent. The staff and the service are extremely good. The rooms are spacious and clean with good air conditioning. I stayed at this place with my wife and kids. My kids had a great time at the kids pool. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this place and would definitely come back for some relaxation.

If you travel to Golfito to shop at the Duty Free Deposit, this is the best place to stay, very well located in front of the sea and near downtown Golfito in a safe environment. And if your travel for pleasure, this is better, because the hotel has its own marina. They have nice swimming pool and ussually there's only a few guests inside, so its pleasant to relax without a noisy crowd around you. But the best is the food, because the place is owned by a french family, they treat you like their personal guest at their home, and usually you can taste the fresh catch of the day from the fishing boats. I go twice a year and I enjoy every time I stay.
