          The hotel looks lovely and the reviews are fantastic. Can anyone give me some advice on how close is the nearest town or local eating places. Also I like to ride motor bikes so are they available to hire. And if so what cost would the daily rate be. Thanks for your help x

          5 minutes to walk to the centre of town, a couple more to the beach. Nearest mini-market, bar and bakery opposite the hotel 'drive'. I think I saw quad bike rentals, but I am not sure about motorbikes.
          Are the balcony or patio rooms better? Upstairs or downstairs is what I mean I guess. Also, would you recommend the apartment with kitchen or just a regular room for 2 people who won't have a car and are on a budget. We might actually save more money with a kitchen. Is the fridge small in the apartment like the double room fridge? Also, I saw on there you can get free bottled water. Is this unlimited? I know it changes with guests, but is this more of a noisy party hotel atmosphere? We actually want to escape the party noise in the evenings.

          There is a shuttle that goes to Sámara. I booked it from the hotel I stayed in in Arenal, but you can get it from the Liberia airport, too.
