We stayed in the eco-lodge/1 bed condo. The pool and grounds were very nice, but the room was not. The photos they have on their website are extremely misleading. They show bright, modern, and clean rooms, but ours was the opposite.
The furniture and decor of the room was extremely outdated and the room was dark and very musty and we were unable to ever get the smell out.
Since we are from the U.S., $100 per night seems like a great deal, but after traveling around Costa Rica we realized it wasn't. We stayed a nicer place for $40 per night, and another place we stayed which was $100 per night was like a 5-star B&B.
We had a great time in Quepos, but we avoided being in this room whenever we could.
My advice to people traveling to Costa Rica for the first time is don't book all your hotel nights in advance, travel around and find nice places where you want to stay. There are always vacancies (we were there over Christmas and there were plenty of vacancies at many hotels)
