The promotion photos are totally misleading. The place is isolated,in a poor area, stripped wrecked cars along the highway , no visible security anywhere. The parking lot was not secure. They are in the process of building a 6 foot chain link fence around the hotel building maybe to prevent access from the grounds and beach area . We knew it was not a safe area and left although we had prepaid . The staff would not refund our money, had to phone a head office that stated we were fabricating our facts although the person had never been to the “resort “ . Fortunately we found a. Reasonable person at Visa who honoured our good record and was able to refund our money and start an investigation of this place and its false advertising.
I stayed about a week here and found the staff wonderfully accommodating. Willing to go well beyond any typical standard to make me feel welcome, at home and enjoying myself. The staff here became lovely friends in a matter of days. Each of the staff made such a kind effort to help me regain my lost Espanol it was quite touching actually. Sloth sightings in the backyard, private secluded beach, nice pool, comfortable ac rooms and fast WiFi connection throughout and in rooms. Would happily stay again.
If you are on business in the town I would suggest that you stay here. 15 minutes drive to the city. The hotel situated in Westfalia. It’s a small hotel with fantastic staff. They also speak English. The rooms are very basic and comfortable. I had a double room with a nice comfortable bed. Big bathroom. Breakfast is nothing special but it is tasty. Dinner is nice and they have some nice things on the menu I will definitely be back
Wonderful place for a group of 8 touring Costa Rica. Don't let the sign fool you, once you pull into the property you'll be surprised to see how big this property is. The garden we had to walk through gave you that feeling of being in the jungle and when you get pass, it opens up to the pool area and restaurant. Pass the pool and restaurant is access to the beach with a sitting area under the coconut trees before you get to the ocean. The room accommodations were adequate for our needs and really enjoyed having the suite at the end of the building overseeing the pool/restaurant area. Also had a great view of the ocean in the morning. Hopefully you'll get a chance to see the resident sloth as we did during a rain storm
We recently stayed at Hotel Westfalia for 2 days. It is a quaint little spot nestled in the gardens and right on the beach. Our hostess, Flor , was outstanding , she even had everyone on lookout for sloths for me , and I saw one ! The gardens are lovely and the beach is a great place for a long walk. When going to the beach , you will likely be accompanied by the hotel dogs , you add wonderful company. Our only complaint was our room was near the road therefore giving lots of road noise, so ask for a room in the main building. The sound of surf would be a big improvement over the sound of trucks. If you are looking for a reasonably priced and laid back hotel , then this is a great spot.
