Don't waste your time go to Hotel Leyenda. You can't even get in the pool because the managers whole family is in it and you will need a Valilum to survive that bunch. When the owner is away the mouse will play.

I have stayed at this hotel many times. The rooms , well are average at best. However, the restaurant is SO good. The breakfast, lunch and dinner is wonderful. The restaurant next door which is over priced and highly overated. The cook at Hotel Puerto Carrillo is worth visiting, she puts love in her cooking and it shows. Can't wait to eat her grouper again..

Sadie & her staff were more than hospitable to my husband & I & 3 adult sons. Our first hotel was too tight for us all so our boys stayed here but was the main place to relax for us all. Very good breakfast included. Very clean but sheets aren't changed daily unless you ask. Bad reviews earlier may just be because you don't always get waited on immediately but it's just the local way as no one hurries. You're on CR time!

I have nothing good to report about this place other than it's location. We were with a group and the day before we turned up they sold on five of our rooms to other punters who wanted to stay longer. Our room was dirty (lots of dead wildlife under the bed and in the corners) and smelt bad. An attractive hair ball outside our door. No hot water and blocked sink. Dubious sheets and towels. Hopeless service at what purported to be breakfast. And total disinterest by the management in the needs of their paying and long suffering guests. If you have any choice in the matter, avoid this place if you can.

Staff should be friendlier. Smiling does not kill. Rooms are not cleaned everyday, but quite good. Localization near the one of the best playas is important. We wanted to stay in Posada, but due to some mistakes in reservation we finally ended here. Poor breakfast. Shop is just across the street. Parking avaiable.

We ended up staying here because the motel were had reserved did not keep our reservations they charged us double there advertised rate. ( it was Christmas eve)when asking about this we were told its Christmas what do you expect. While every other hotel we stayed at in CR showed hospitality and gracious friendly service, these people never said so much as a word to us. In 4 nights stay there was never any maid service. Some of this I would have over looked at their advertised price but to charge double and give absolutely terrible service. This place was the low point of out 18 days in Costa Rica

Nothing too special about this hotel. Rooms are spacious. Beds were firm with very hard sheets. The curtains didn't close all the way. The bathroom was spacious but old. And unfrotunately, they advertised hot water. We had none, so no shower for me. But our friends in the other room had scortching hot water. Dont know which is worse. I got sick that evening and was grateful for the cable TV, the breakfast was ok. The location was up the hill. The pool was nice, but we never used it. It was quiet however...and that means a whole lot to me.

I was with my husband for our honey moon was terrible. Would not recommend at all. Only stayed one night. When we got the room, the bathroom was disgusting, smelled musty, was rusty and had ants. -The bed was hard and was out of adjustment, the air conditioner was too loud, but the worst thing was that I had a blue light that would not let us rest -We never changed the 2 towels or sheets - "Breakfast" included only ham and toast with coffee because there was no juice or another option to choose. My husband and I went to another place to complete the breakfast -We Never use the pool because it was dirty and smelly -The "gym" was a by rusty old machine useless. We finally decided to leave the hotel, but we had to pay for the nights that we would not be there because the manager told us, in very bad shape, we should meet "reservation", and this we did find a very bad way (rude) and never asked the reason for our disagreement. We pay to avoid more trouble on our trip.
