Our room was very spacious, had a full size refrigerator, coffee pot, microwave, and large bottled water on the counter. I was happy that the shower...

Such a pleasure to dine at Por Que No… hard to fine a restaurant with fantastic views, great ambiance and delicious, healthy food. Not to mention the hospitality of Jo and Shelby to ensure your dining experience exceeds your expectations. Highly recommended dining in this wonderful place for any meal.

I have recently ate at the costa paraiso restaurant What a fabulous location. So private, lush gardens, and brilliant service. The food is a unique combination of tico foods with a twist on preparation. Don't go if you are pressed for time. This is an experience to be savoured and enjoyed. The ambiance and the cuisine are a vacation memory...

Our family of 4 spent 7 nights - both in the Dolphin room and the Monkey Loft. The small hotel only has 5 rooms so it feels like you are staying in someone's home.
