If you are on a budget and traveling in high season, Diversion Tropical could provide the basics in an otherwise pricey location. We stayed here for 5 days as the last leg of our multi-week Costa Rican trip (read: last stretch of our budget!). A few key points to consider: - Location: 5-10 min to Brasilito, 20 min walk to...

Hotel Cabinas Diversión Tropical in Playa Brasilito is a very pleasant place to stay. Parking is easy and the rooms are quite comfortable. It's an easy walk into town for meals, although the Hotel Conchal next door has a restaurant as well. The room was perfectly fine--clean and comfortable. The WiFi is too weak for use in the room and...

We lucked across this motel / hostel (it's a bit of both) when we changed our plans last minute. Owner was terrific and staff super nice. Very reasonable and great place if you are traveling with kids on a budget. For us it was a perfect ending to our vacation.

I'm sorry but you are not telling the full story. You had a reservation for Saturday night Aug 23. 1 night. You did not cancel your reservation and did not show up. I was completely full that night, so your no show would have cost me $50. I called you that day and left a message for you to call...

My wife and I stayed here as we wanted to be close to Playa Conchal. We had heard Playa Flamingo was overrun with tourism so this was a better choice for us.

Stayed for a night in May 2013 with my father and had a great experience. The owner is from Wyoming and very helpful.
