Spent two nights in Gaudy's, once on the 1st and the next on the 4th. It was a tale of 2 stays, really. The first one was less than great. Our room was a private room with a large double bed and a single bed. The sheets were clean at first, but by later in the night the single bed was covered in a bunch of small ants. Further, some form of giant black bug crawled up onto my travel partner while sleeping that night. The bathroom door was not really a door and the toilet paper dispenser didn't work. The walls were also paper thin...we were talking just above a whisper in a private room and it disturbed the person next to us.
However, the second night was a totally different stay. It was in a private room that wasn't directly attached to another room. The bathroom had a door this time, which was a big plus, though the shower doors were busted. No bug problems either and the bed was definitely bigger. The staff were really helpful the entire time and gladly stored some bags for us while we travelled to Manuel Antonio for two days. While we didn't use them very much, the common areas were spacious and received a lot of light and air. They also helped by calling a reliable driver to take us to the airport, even at 4:30am.
