Very small and nice hotel, dog friendly and accomodating. I only stayed one night and it was quiet and breakfast included. The hotel is only minutes from airport and shuttle is included. People working there are very friendly.

Very pleasant, kind of away from Everything was very Nice. There is little soda/restaurant with authentic Costa Rican/Tico food. Is a great place for one night and very close to the airport. Family owned and operated and they are very accommodating.

Though we didn't expect a 5 star hotel, we did expect much more than we got. To begin with, it took 20 minutes to get someone to respond to the bell at the locked entry gate (in late afternoon). The room was okay but there was absolutely no hot water for showers and no "as advertised" coffeemaker, though there were...

This small B&B was perfect for us. We had an early flight and wanted to be close to the airport. The staff was incredibly friendly and hospitable. There isn't much around the hotel, but we weren't really looking for entertainment. The rooms are equipped with a TV and A/C. We left too early to experience the breakfast, but I am...

No microwave, or room refrigerator in room, but a common use area has a refrigerator, microwave and counter top for food preparation.”
