We spent almost three weeks in Costa Rica and this was BY FAR THE WORST place we stayed. Even places less than half the price were miles better. We were meant to be staying 3 nights but as soon as we checked in, we dumped our bags and went looking for somewhere else to stay instead. We got a bad feeling as soon as we saw the run-down reception. The lady on reception was not very hospitable and they insist you pay up front in cash. It soon became apparent why... to get to our room we had to walk down the longest and STEEPEST hill ever, only to discover we thenhad to walk back up the damn thing to get our safe key which they made us pay extra for! The rooms look like they were decorated in 1960 and the make-shift roof was also home to a giant lizard whose belly we could see and he just loved to run and scratch along the corrugated roof - NOISY. The restuarant was equally run down and horrible. DO NOT STAY HERE - the beach front location may seem perfect but the rooms, hills, and rip-off prices are NOT.
