This hotel was amazing! It isn't fancy, but it's comfortable, clean, and RELAXED! From the moment we got to the hotel we felt like we were home. (If home was on the beach and had monkeys swinging overhead!) We only wished that we could have stayed longer.
Jim (the owner) was friendly and helpful...his relaxed and kickbacked demeanor helps create the atmosphere of hanging out in your best friends backyard.
The pool was refreshing, the views spectacular, and the room was clean and comfortable. There wasn't a tv, or air conditioning. But who goes on vacation to a beautiful country like Costa Rica to sit in their room and watch tv?? As for air conditioning, we did what the Costa Rican people do...we opened the windows and turned on the fans...was comfortable in no time!
The hotel was just far enough out of town to get away from the "crowds" but close enough to drive into town for dinner and our scuba diving tour. It truly was a little slice of heaven!
The people that have posted negative reviews on here need to get their heads checked! This hotel was perfect! If they want all of the ridiculous unnecessary comforts of home while in another country, maybe they should stay home and watch the Discovery channel. Or perhaps go to one of those all inclusive hotels that cater to the spoiled Americans. Go there and stay on the resort, and don't you dare leave the resort...you might accidentally soak up some cultural experiences...
Thank you for your hospitality Jim! We had the best time...staying at your hotel was one of the highlights of our trip!
