First night in Costa Rica and our tour company had reserved us a room at this hotel. They like to choose local hotels rather than international chains... I like that. Support the local community and and what a gem this was!
Located on a quiet street more like a residential area, the rooms were big and clean, bathroom was also big and clean (had a hair dryer too), and the little courtyard off our room had a table, two chairs and was private and surrounded by gorgeous vegetation! Like I said, it resembled a residence more than a hotel in my opinion. (I have included some pictures)
Just up the hill to the main road and then right (up another hill) is a grocery store. Or, to the left on this main road was a Bagelman, a little coffee shop with food. Did not get there so I can not report on it.
The next morning our Pacuare River rafting trip with Adventures Naturales picked us up in the Turismo Bus earlier than we could have breakfast so the hotel staff arranged coffee and croissants to be brought to us. What a wonderful touch! The bus was on time...so if you do an excursion, be ready! They will be there to pick you up smiling and full of "pura vida!"
On our way to the hotel, our airport pick up driver suggested a restaurant down the hill on the main road called Nuestra Tierra. It was a good walk, a bit of a distance though so if walking is not your thing try elsewhere. (and watch out for the sidewalks! they are in terrible shape) Order a coffee...it will be quite a conversation piece! I have not laughed so hard in a long time... I will leave it at that. Across the street from Nuestra Tierra was a block of local vendors shops. Similar to a flea market. So after we ate we walked through and looked at all the souvenier stuff.
As for the Hotel, it was a short visit but very comfortable. Staff was so friendly and carried our bags to our rooms. If you want a taste of local flavor...I would certainly consider Hotel Le Bergerac!
