Reviewed 29 July 2016

It's really a pity that all the outdoor areas look like a junkyard. Garbage and old construction materials all over. In the area who was supposed to be the sitting area was all the tables and chairs placed in top of each other in one end. Nobody seems to care about it. The rooms was ok and clean.

Thanks for visiting Arribadas, i am sorry to say that that is the way we locals clean up. We stake everything on a pile until it dry up. Beach costarrican way

The rooms were of an adequate condition, but the kitchen at your disposal is filthy and shows no signs of being cleaned in a long time. The only good thing to address is the placement right at the beach front and nice staff, but without much competition in the area the prices are maybe more than sufficiently high. Be careful...

We booked room for rent on Airbnb and we knew that we had the option to stay and eat or go out,but after the first meal we didn't want to go anywhere else. Enid is the owner and a excellent cook. She made this homemade juice from a tamarind fruit tree that is on the property. Wow it was so...

A very small, simple place. Noisy at night and day, no hot water. Basic Costa Rican breakfast. If you are not a turtle lover or surfer, Ostional really has no appeal. If there for turtle watching, they will help you with that.

This is a great place, the room fits 5 people comfortably at a price of 70 dollars. Wendy the owner was super nice and very knowledgeable about the turtles, she answered all of our questions. The tour at night to see the turtles was a short walk away and we got to see a few of them. The tour guide...

Service was wonderful, very interesting, a great place to learn and enjoy. Seeing the turtles lay their eggs was a life changing experience. I would recommend people to not miss it for anything in the world

There are many hotels in Ostional beach where you will pay less and get more! First and foremost the location is absolutely terrible. The hotel itself sits about 5 feet from the main road. As a result from early hours in the morning to late hours at night you are startled by sounds of trucks and dirt bikes passing by....

The guides are available in The schedule of the events and they are The ones on charge of the tour separated from the lodge. The...
