Perfect for the overnight stay we needed. Cannot complain but cannot rave either as we arrived a 9:00PM and left at 5:00AM. clean and convenient and well priced. NO coffee to be found in the AM that early

6/10 Good

Very good hotel. breakfast doesn't have much choices. The beach you have to pay six bucks per person to get into. Wi-Fi is very bad in rooms.

10/10 Exceptional

In our recent vacation to Costa Rica we decided to stay at this location because it was closed to playa uvita. The hotel was more than what we were expecting, the room had a nice space, super clean and nicely decorated. The pool was super clean. The crew at the front desk were super friendly and helpful. One of the employees helped us book a whales view adventure which was amazing. Also, the restaurant's food was really good. We will most definitely stay here again.
