Simply put, after being at another place where my stuff got stolen I went to Hotel Tiquicia. The comfort was amazing, the environment was nice and Calvin who runs the hotel was simply one of the most amazing people that I have ever met in my life. When I was there I was treated like family.
It felt more like a home than a hotel, which to me is more valuable. I could have stayed at the Hilton or something like that, but remember, I'm going to Costa Rica for the feel and to get away from the traditional hotel experience.
I loved it there and honestly speaking, I cannot wait to return. I love Hotel Tiquicia and Calvin who runs it, who I now consider my brother, and all the staff who works there.
When I'm in Costa Rica, Tiquicia Hotel is my home away from home.
By the way, you can't miss the breakfast. The big breakfast, the humming birds that flock around the back patio alone are worth the reservations. But theirs something about that "BIG BREAKFAST"
