My friend and I stayed at Hotel Costa Verde for 3 nights in mid-September. This is the 1st time I've ever provided comment on any hotels online, but since I choose hotels based on the Tripadvisor reviews, I thought I should do my part. Overall, we had a good experience. We stayed in building D with a partial ocean view in a Efficiency room. Building D was away from the main street, but to get to Reception area, you have to walk a few flights of steep stairs. Fairly clean, and unit was quiet. However, there was a group of people who was on the floor above us who was talking until midnight on the 1st night. Thin walls. The A/C was good, but very loud. The hotel was only a 10-15 minute walk down to the MA beach. As it's a bit steep, we would take the local bus back up the hill. Their restaurant food was okay. Nothing great, but okay, but then again, I didn't think Costa Rican food was spectacular overall. Front desk overall pretty good, as we booked all our tours through the hotel. One thing that wasn't a big deal, but more the principle of the matter, is we wanted a 2pm checkout on the last day, which they wouldn't give us; the hotel was more than 1/2 empty during our stay given low season.
Now, here's the reason why we did enjoy our stay, one afternoon we saw a group of 25+ squirrel monkeys playing right outside our hotel room for over an hour. What a rush! Additionally, we saw sloths, and other monkey species too. It was incredible to be eating a meal and seeing the animals.
Overall, I would go back again, with the only caveat to bring earplugs.
