6.8.Good.
  • 8.0.Very Good

    The staff were really friendly and helpfull. The bigger guy with all the tatoos was very kind and helped with everything and spoke really well english. Rooms were a bit out dated but still pretty nice. Lots of stuff to see near by. Playa del coco was very close and a great place to see. Over all a great first experience in Costa Rica

    We used rbc rewards to book our room. It was alot of points to spend on such a poor experience. When we checked in the person behind the counter was trying to charge us for our room. It took a few minutes, but we finally got it across that we already paid with points. Our first room wasn't properly cleaned and the ac until was broken. We asked for a new room. They moved us to our second room which was clean and the ac worked. The next morning, we went to get breakfast as it said is included with the room and we were told that we needed to buy breakfast! We explained it is supposed to be included with the room and then we were given breakfast for free. It is important to know the hotel staff do not speak any english so it is very hard to communicate. We can't recommend this hotel and will not be back.

    We really enjoyed the private beach, huge space of the room, beautiful grounds and the peace and relaxation that this place offers. There is incredible value for the price.

    Could use some TLC

    Stayed 3 nights. Spacious room (18) with large square footage and separate balcony overlooking bay. Paid off-season rate so not too upset in value. Plus's-Large room, kitchen with large fridge/freezer, view of bay and Playa Panama just steps away, secluded Playita. Reasonably priced in off-season. Staff friendly. Neg's-Only microwave in kitchen, (we don't do microwave) so cooking own meals difficult. Perhaps an induction hotplate would be a nice touch. Bathroom tub/shower not really clean. High mineral content in water we understand, but this can be cleaned. Nightly red ants invading the bathroom. Outside roadway needing upgrade. With a little investment back into the facility, I think the place has potential to becoming once again a great little accommodation.

    It was close to the beach, however, the path to the beach was a little scary for young children. The room smelled like water hadn’t dried properly, we didn’t get a wifi signal even after telling the front desk 3 times. The room has really big, and the view from the room (not an ocean view) was nice since we were on a hill.

  • 6.0.Good

    The property had a good central location, and there was a beach when the tide was low. There was a pool, but we did not go in it. The room had a much to be desired though, broken chairs (like missing legs), VERY squeaky mattress (rolling over would wake someone up), only one very dull knife for preparing food (it was so dull it would not even cut soft fruit), cleaning service was only every other day and it was basically only a towel refresh/make the bed. If you are looking for a place to just rest your head--then this place will work, but if you are looking for a place that you would want to enjoy a nice relaxing vacation at--I would find another location.

    This propery is not for you. First, while most worldwide hotels let you cancel in the 24 or 48 prior to visit with no penalties, they have a 2-month policy. Like if they were a 5-star hotel that needed months in a wait-list to get a reservation. If you make a reservation, and it's less than 2 months away, please be aware there's no way to cancel it without penalties. In my opinion this is a scam, and as a costarrican myself, I am ashamed of the illegal and dirty practices some places have in place, to take advange of foreigners. Second, it's impossible to call them to request a cancellation. Even Expedia tried several times, with not being able to contact anyone. Before making a reservation here, read all reviews and how bad all visitors speak lately of this place.
