What a surprise !! Totally great place !! The rooms were simple but perfect. Our room had a full kitchen which really came in handy. The pool is nice... deep without much of a shallow end, so if you have young kids one would have to be vigenlent for sure. Everything is within a quick walk, the beach, restaurants, the...

location is great in town; rooms adequately appointed--not luxurious, not a dump; a-c and pool; relatively quiet; good value; clean; helpful intern; management not overly friendly and somewhat officious, but helpful.

Room was nice and clear, spacious too. Friendly staff, very reliable and safe. We actually forgot the safe open with our stuff inside; nothing was missing when we got back later that day. Short walk to the beach, quiet and remote. 2 pools and areas. Breakfast was decent. Recommended for its quality/price.

A brilliant small hotel set in beautiful gardens with two delightful swimming pools. My room was comfortable and very well equipped, with a terrace looking out onto the gardens. A very good continental-style breakfast in a pleasant dinning room. The property is very well managed and immaculately kept.

The hotel is in a good location not far from the beach and main street. It is meticulously maintained with great attention to detail. Our room was everything we could have asked for. Although the hotel itself is fantastic, the best part is the staff - extremely accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you for your help with...

Also a jacuzzi at the first building where the reception is located. Breakfast offered for $10 at the hotel but we chose to eat in town on our way out. The beach...

Very nice hotel. Close to village and beach, both walking distance. Good breakfast with both Costa Rican and European choice. Beautiful garden and nice and clean pools. Staff do their best to make your holiday stress free without worries. Rooms are basic but nicely decorated and have all the facilities you need. If I have to mention one point of...
