  • The hotel is not like in photos, the infrastructure is very old and bad customer service.

  • 4.0.Fair

    El lugar e instalaciones son muy lindas, excelente vista, las habitaciones son muy comodas. La comida no es buena, solo 2 personas atendiendo en el restaurant todos los clientes, se demoran mucho en servir la comida y todos los días sirven el mismo menú. Deben mejorar la limpieza de las habitaciones y mejorar la atencion al cliente.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The rooms are shipping containers - quite unique. There are 2 pools with loungers. The restaurant serves good food but a bit expensive. The staff is fabulous! Very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is located on a steep slope but they have drivers with golf carts to take you up and down. Once in the parking lot there are elevators.

    Container hotel.. needs better containers

    i understand the container thing.. fine. But if your gonna skimp on the construction, at least upgrade other things to make it an nice experience.. service was great with the hotel check in , but the first day breakfast guy tried to tell me that the chipped plate he served my omelette on was that way from the factory.. really? cmon man.. more than 1 chipped plate / cup were used.. just not very professional.. wood painted floors? Just felt like they were trying to pinch every penny.. turned us off.. won't be going back. The staff was great except for the one waiter, but the hotel seemed like it was being run with expenses as the #1

    Very uncomfortable

    There was no door or curtain for shower. We had to be careful when taking shower so water did not fall out. Bed was so uncomfortable making noise. We won't recommend to family or friends to stay here.

    STAY AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL!! OR SHOULD I SAY HOSTEL. IT IS DEFINITELY DIRTY AND OLD LIKE ONE. THE FURNITURE IS SO GROSS. This honestly is like a 2 star Hostel it is very dirty.. The furniture is old and rusty. These are containers so the furniture they used is inadequate. You cannot walk to the bathroom without climbing the bed. It is so supper dirty and even if they gave me another room I just left to another hotel because the mattress are old cheap and dirty. The blanket was yellow instead of white. And it had dark patches. All the guests are are outside their rooms and it can get loud. You cannot rest here or be comfortable because after the hike in Manuel antonio you want a clean bed and bathroom to shower. Here all you get is worst than camping. Not toilet paper or shampoo so bring your own or just avoid these hotel because you will regret so bad. I was embarrassed and so ashamed of choosing this hostel..

    The hotel is very nice and well located, although the last time I booked the hotel through Expedia, the hotel charged double the stay, on the one hand, the price of Expedia ($ 118),then when arriving at the hotel another amount was charged for the lodging ($ 94), when consulting in the hotel they lasted more than 15 days in solving and they did not answer my questions, they said that they were going to make the return and they did not do it until today, it was a very difficult process.

    Solo traveler in Costa Rica

    You stay here to wake up to that view, the rooms are basic and my bathroom seems as though needs some repairs, when peaked into the other rooms they seemed more pull together than my room, but overall great location very close to the beach and park
