Still new in January 2013, the apartments were clean, and well-furnished. A flat-screen in the living room and bedroom got more use than I'd like to admit, we were on the wi-fi almost constantly while we were in the room, and the kitchen appliances suited our needs well for the week. One exception: there was no wine-key or corkscrew. This bit of nitpicking serves a purpose, though: When we asked Natalia at the front desk if she had one, she quickly came to our aid. Though it was late in the evening, she was able to get one in just a couple minutes. Crisis averted. Natalia was incredibly helpful during our entire stay. The other staff I dealt with were equally as helpful, especially Lineth, with whom I first began discussing our stay through the hotel's Facebook account.
The location outside Quepos was an unexpected boon, since the time we spent downtown made it quite apparent Quepos was more bustling and a bit "grittier" than we would have enjoyed while trying to relax. Though we only rented a car for two days, getting around was still really easy. There's a bus stop practically adjacent to the hotel, and cabs arrive quickly once a call is placed.
In all, it was a pleasant stay. Iguanas lounged in the trees behind our room, and hummingbirds darted from bush to bush. Plus, the place is gated and security is on the clock 24 hours, so we felt safe and secure the entire time.
