This is not a modern, fancy (at all) or nice hotel. Stucked in the 80's is a very basic hotel. Rooms are old fashioned and simple. Shower, not bathtube, very small handwash and basic amenities. Pillows are like bricks and bed not very confortable. You can sleep for shure, but no more than two nights. Basic pool area, nothing special...

Very quiet with a great view. Lots of family's and business gatherings in the restaurant which we were not expecting. The restaurant had negative reviews but I'd would have to disagree I found the dinner menu great and yummy. The free breakfast was really good compared to other places we stayed. The two men who worked in the dinning area...

The only thing great about this place is the scenery from the outdoor seating in the restaurant. BUT THAT'S IT! I wish I took pictures of the room/hotel situation to share with everyone reading this... My boyfriend and I stayed in Room 129 and the air conditioner blew hot air... every time we took a shower... IF we had water......

Staff is very helpful. - Hotel seems a bit rundown. But the rooms are spic and span clean (room 145). The images are a bit deceiving but I enjoyed my 1 night there. you can park your car there even after checking out. Breakfast is a catastrophy: Toaster takes 20 minutes to grill a sandwich :D. Food seems unhygienic. The...

My wife and I travel to Limon from our home in Puerto Viejo about once a month, and until recently we were disappointed in our dining options. To be honest, Limon isn't a very scenic place. Then in March we decided to drive up the coastal road north of town to see what we could find. We came upon the...

-unwelcoming staff -dirty rooms -expensive restaurant, bad food -bad customer service -noisy AC, poor water pressure no hot water room 158 -no remote control for the tv. This place is one of the worst hotels in town. Don't let the pictures from the website deceive you

I have traveled around the world and have stayed at hotels that cover the spectrum of quality. I can say this hotel nears the bottom of the list. From the moment we arrived we felt unwelcome by the staff who acted as though we were such a bother to them that they could not even offer up a smile during...

Travelling with a group of in total 12 people we had lunch at this place. At the time we were there we were the only guests for lunch. It was supposed to be a buffet lunch. It was obviously specially made for us. We had the choice of one piece of meat (chicken of course), nicely counted out for 12...
