We stayed at Milarepa for 4 nights and the first night we were totally disgusted with the place. There were ants EVERYWHERE. Not the little ants that are in the US…they were much bigger and they were on everything. On the mosquito netting, all over the floor in the main room, in the bathroom ,etc. It was way beyond the normal amount of ants you would expect to find. It made us feel totally uncomfortable. We completely understood that we were in Costa Rica and were staying in an open bungalow but this was too much. We stayed in other places while in CR and nothing compared to this. We asked the hotel and they sprayed for us the following day and it helped a tiny bit. Overall, I felt like Milareapa was different once you saw it in person compared with the pictures they have on the website. The website pictures seem a little more luxurious and cleaner. We felt mislead. I thought the bungalows (especially the bathroom) showed a little wear. The hotel staff wasn't very friendly or helpful. On our first day when we arrived there they said 1 sentence to us and handed us the keys and we were on our own. We expected more from them and were disappointed with what we got. They walked around with a little bit of an attitude which we didn’t appreciate. I wouldn’t stay at Milarepa again if I returned to Santa Teresa.
