“They live on the location!”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Meaning that if it did not sit on a fantastic beach, it would probably be closed!
• People are unpleasant all the rest was poor.
• The bar is nonexistent,
• Safe box in rooms is totally unsafe.
• For Wi-fi connection you have to wander around the premises searching for some sort of signal.
Cheap family hotel where I spent only one night, but it was the last one at the end of a wonderful holiday in a beautiful country and it almost ruined all of it.

Room Tip: either keep your eyes closed when inside the resort or chose another place

We stayed 3 nights this past week. Our room was clean but nothing to get excited about. The hotel is right on the beach and the surf is great. The restaurant that is the hotel is ok at best. Breakfast is included but it is minimal. The food on the menu is ok but there are better places to eat if you can get around. The best part of this place is location. The sunsets were great. My family had to move rooms several times because their room had mold issues and the other had a bum air conditioner. But they did their best to accommodate us. Thank goodness there were other available rooms (it was midweek). The pool was nice and clean. I had a massage by someone the hotel recommended (40 dollars for 1 hour and 15 min) and that was wonderful and I highly recommend her (her name was Kattrina or Katerine, I forget but she was good)

I came with my husband and my girls, 8 and 2 years for New Years vacation. The room was average, very clean though and with a safe. I will recommend the hotel for surfers or travelers that want to experience a very down to earth vacation. Don't expect a Marriott or Holiday Inn experience, this hotel is for people that like to stay out and experience the beach. Not nice to stay in all day, the beds are made for sleeping purposes, not relaxing. Food is ok, breakfast is included and fresh. Really liked the experience.

Nice place. I've stayed here many times. Costa Rican style breakfast included with stay. Great location right on Playa Hermosa. Close to Jaco, yet far enough away to avoid all the conjestion. It's quiet here.

My boyfriend and I drove late into Playa Hermosa to stay here, as he had been here years ago on a surf trip. We saw signs for a "special walk-in discount" rate and we went to check them out. We had a guidebook with us that gave us an accurate price range of what we were expecting and they quoted us way over that. Not a good start, but we figured we'd stay the night and find a new place in the morning.

AC worked great in the room. However, we discovered that the shower upstairs somehow flooded our shower with dirty sand and bathwater. The TV in our room went out after a storm and a day or two later, hadn't been fixed. The curtains didn't close all the way and the beds were uncomfortable. Also, no fridges in some of the rooms so you can't store cold food and beer. A can of beer at the bar was sold for about the price of a six-pack. No joke. That was the final straw and we left for a place down the road.

That said, the restaurant staff were awesome and the food made in the kitchen was great. The food (other than the beer) was adequately priced. Also, the pool looked really nice, though we didn't swim in it. I saw a fitness center advertised, but never saw it.

This was once a much better hotel, but the rooms are now a let down. It just needs a little updating - including new pillows (currently lumpy) and new sheets (currently 'bobbly') - and the whole experience would improve.

Our party of 5, checked in for one night. We were given the $ 220/night "apartment" with two rooms, jacuzzi, kitchen, etc.
refrigerator, oven and microwave were not plugged in and stank. There was no reading lamp. The jacuzzi was broken. The water went off in the whole hotel. The pool was murky. it was the worst hotel we have ever stayed in in 6 years of traveling costa rica. We understand basic level. This was below because it was so run down.

Room Tip: Never stay here. Promising view, good beach,nice bartender and breakfast. Horrible accommodations...
