We stayed for 1 night. The room was comfortable and clean. We had a balcony but the view was of a wall and there was a lot of construction in the area. The breakfast was included and good. There was plenty of parking and the hotel was easy to find.

Spent on night at this hotel. The room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was included. There seemed to be a lot of construction around the hotel. It was close to the beach. There was plenty of hot water.

I was visiting the area and some friends and family were staying at the hotel. I wanted to visit and share with them one of the days in the pool area as I used to do it before but they told me I was not allowed to be near the pool. The Food is great, the ladies at the restaurant as well but if this situation doesn’t change, my family and I will never come back or recommend the place. I was willing to pay for the service and pool usage but it was unacceptable the way they just advice you can´t not use the pool that you have being using for years.

We ended up here after trying to find our way out of San Juanillo in the worst rain storm ever.. We couldn't drive any further and had to stop... Thank goodness we found this hotel.. We walked in looking like drowned rats into the restaurant and asked for a room. The lady at the bar was more than hospitable. She gave us a room at discount and what a room! We felt like we were in heaven. It was very spacious and luxurious. The bed was a huge King. Big fluffy white pillows.. There was a kitchenette and we had a balcony with a beautiful view. Back down to the bar for a well needed nightcap. The restaurant was full and lively. We even bumped into some friends.. Their food looked delicious. Had a great nights sleep before getting back on the road.. We will definitely be back. A real hidden gem

This place never lets me down. Old Costa Rica like it used to be and should be, in totally comfortable accommodations. Great food in the restaurant, and a quick walk or drive to the best beach in The Guanacaste. Super friendly staff of ladies that are always smiling and ready to laugh. Waking up here and having coffee on the balcony listening to the monkeys, birds, frogs, cows and roosters before surfing will never get old for me. Pure CR. Great bargain too. Beautiful San Juanillo is a short drive to the South - dont miss it for sunset.
