Really bad experience for us while we are not really exigent about hotel. Bed Sheets were dirty and one people of the staff was not really nice. I need to say that the night watchman was really nice. Expérience vraiment désagréable, je ne recommande pas cet hotel.

Hi, how were the mosquitos? Thanks
No problem - we were there in January and sat out on the balcony in the evening.

No me parece. Se trata de un lugar rústico dentro de un bosque donde desde luego no hay lujos pero en general el mantenimiento lo encontré adecuado. Esta es una época muy linda en esa zona del país y en calidad/precio es una buena opción.

"none I would recommend"
"As far away from road as possible"
"Quieter rooms are the ones that are far from the Costanera highway"
"Closer to the pool would be advantageous"
"Ask for one of the rooms closer to the pool if you must stay here"
