The beds weren't comfy, but the room was reasonably clean. The breakfast was exactly the same every day, and the staff appeared to know very little about getting around Costa Rica to the touristy places like Arenal or Monteverde. They also appeared to know very little about places that were nearby like places to eat, dance or set-up tours. On the up hand, it was just a few blocks from the city center, and our room had air conditioning.
