We stayed 1 night because the hotel where we had planned to stay got booked at the last minute. They were very nice, breakfast was included in our rate and was good. Not on the beach, but close by. Market across the street where you can get snacks.

I've visited Costa Rica 4 times for business with 2 disabled persons. Alberto and his family bent over backward to ensure we were safe and comfortable during our extended stays. The service style of both owners and staff is friendly, knowledgeable, professional and truly compassionate. They take pride in their beautiful country and their business and it shows! Rooms are...
