We booked at this place based on the reviews. First the good. The rooms were clean and nice. It is relatively well located. I think your experience will be very different if you speak good Spanish and you don't show up tired. In our case it just didn't seem like there was anything Victor Sr and Victor Jr couldn't complicate. The owners were helpful, but just getting our room keys became a major, major operation. Asking for simple things such as "how much is it to rent a bike" or "is there somewhere we can get our clothes washed" became questions that took hours to answer. What we had to pay for our rooms also became a bit of a saga - and that was after several emails back and forth. I guess it is the Tico way - but if you show up tired and just want to get to your room that kind of wishy washyness just gets annoying. Another thing is that it is useful to have a car. We stayed in the "jungle" which is a good little walk in to the forest to a parkinglot-like area with two cabins. It is not exactly the kind of romantic jungle place you'd expect - it is cleared area without any flowers or anything, but you do have jungle right next to you. The first place we stayed actually has two floors that connect and you can hear everything that happens below - so basically there is zero privacy. Later we were informed that we had been given the wrong room and were asked to move. The other room was nice - if you enjoy the parkinglot garden, but the mattress was very, very soft and strangely enough they locked off one of the rooms - we were 2 people and the cabin holds 4 - something that just felt very strange when you rent a cabin. The whole thing felt a bit like these guys decided to build some cabins in the forest without any real sense of beauty or service. We stayed at several other places in Costa Rica and really felt a lot more welcome and at home.
