  • 4.0.Fair

    We booked this hotel which was advertised for adults only only to find out that the room next to ours had noisy toddlers. We have five children and love children but wanted to have a no children break that week in Costa Rica. We left the hotel after one night and were told we would get a refund, we even have a letter signed by the manager. Seven weeks later, no refund has been processed, It might take longer but we have no proof the process has been initiated.

  • 6.0.Good

    The good and the bad.

    The good: Staff was friendly. They made a good excursion recommendation, Mangrove boat tour with William. Breakfast was good. The bad : There is a foul oder from a swer cover just outside the one and only entrance to the hotel. Air conditioner leaked water onto our suitcase. The furniture is ol and made of cheap plywood. There is zero bar activity. I saw nobody there any time of day and nobody at the small pool either ( Maybe there is in the high season?) The room was very small with no windows, only a sliding glass door which aslo served as the only way in.I feel it was overpriced.

    Perfect location for Manuel Antonio park

    Perfect location for both Manuel Antonio National Park and the town beach. The staff are excellent and the pool is a lovely place to relax. Recommended.

  • 8.0.Very good

    The staff was very accommodating and friendly. The pool area, while small was well kept and nice. The free breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit and eggs made to order daily. The room was very clean and cleaned well daily. It’s not luxurious but well kept. Our room was missing an iron but not sure if that might have been just our room And the closet was just open shelves and hangers. The water pressure in the bathroom was low. Which meant showers took twice as long but the location was just minutes from the beach and with it walking distance to a lot in the area, so all in all I would definitely go back.
