“Great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

We stayed here for two days at the end of July and thought the location was great! The pool was nice and refreshing in the Costa Rican humidity. Breakfast was nice - Pinto de Gallo (beans & rice) and eggs to order, as well as fruit, toast and juice. We liked that we could walk to shops and a few local bars. There was a market on Saturday - worth a stop :)

Overall the hotel is a little dated, but clean and well kept. There is a guard on the door at night, but we never felt unsafe even going out for a couple drinks at night. The front desk was very helpful and there is a free internet kiosk. We also were able to have laundry done for $3/kilo. It cost us $6 dollars to have a big bag done, which was really helpful! There is a tour desk right in the hotel and the front desk was also helping arrange tours for other guests.

The street is a little noisy, but it never bothered us to the point of annoyance.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool are likely the most quiet.

The staff is very friendly and helpfull (thanks Kenneth at reception). We just dropped in w/o reservation. Nice pool, good breakfast and large room. Nice to be ina local town i.o. too touristic Manuel Antonio town.

Room Tip: Street side rather noisy, but nice beachview.

We chose this hotel since one of our tours was picking us up here. We were on the third floor. The first night it was rather noisy since Costa Rica won their first game in the World Cup! The hotel is on the bus route but that is a minor inconvenience when you can look out on your balcony and see the ocean. The pool was nice and the restaurant offered a nice breakfast.

We were due to stay in Wide Moth Frog, but pool was out of order, so we looked for other options. Credit to Wide Mouth for giving us refund.

We walked in to the hotel so rates were not great, but even so, it was only a bit more expensive than Wide Mouth when you include air con and breakfast fees that apply at the hostel.

Anyway, here the pool worked (and very pleasant (ask for towels from reception staff)), air con good, the rooms were clean (but small, and bed small too), showers worked, coffee maker to chill with, it was quite good. Staff very helpful and friendly, however they did give us room 202 which was above the casino. At 2.30am on a Tuesday night I was so annoyed that I stomped downstairs to enquire how much longer this would go on for and see the place. Only about 4 people in there, but still the need for thumping bass which penetrated my skull. Sure there was some street noise, but that was fine, it was the ruddy bass that did me in.

Next day we asked to move rooms to somewhere quieter, they moved us to room with view of pool. It was ok, but twin room, not double bed.

Breakfast area very nice with view of the Pacific and a decent range of stuff to start your day. Coffee served at the table.

Location is great with a number of Sodas closeby, plus some bars (dont just look down the bus station road, also go the other side), bus station a few minutes away, and across the road from the promenade.Yep, some ladies of the night about, but nothing to worry about.

We both felt that Quepos was a better place to stay than the road to Manuel Antonio, as it meant we only needed to get the bus one day for the trip to the reserve, the rest of the time we could walk around town enjoying the more local side of things.

Room Tip: Do not chose a room on the first floor above the casino, the bass coming through is awful! I think t...

We stayed a week in quepos. Wanted to be near friends. Not exactly the place to be ,above the casino. Bars across the street were loud so you couldn't sleep at night . Hookers everywhere outside the hotel at night . Will not stay there again. Food was ok. Water stopped running mid shower. Staff was nice though.

We stopped at this hotel after driving for six hours. The outside seemed nice so we didn't ask to see the room. It smelled horrible. Like mildew and sewage. It was worse in the bathroom. And because there is a casino on the first floor it is loud. The bathroom was a mess. You couldn't even lock the door--it was the swinging saloon style type. There is no private parking at the hotel and the area felt unsafe to leave a car unattended. Way too expensive for what you get. On the bright side the staff was nice and the A/C worked.

Staff nice. Hotel noisy, particularly room 201. Had to move after 2nd night. Should have moved 1st night. Room was under restaurant and very close to an all night disco. Not an ocean view, trees. No hot water either. Book a room with view of the pool. Rm 312 was acceptable. Breakfast suffices. Location good for fishing. Get to Manuel Antonio park at 7am or wait in lines.
