The hotel was ok: rooms weren't very clean, and we did find little lizards in the room. No TV, and cheap/thin sheets on the beds. We did the 1-Day Tour (zipline, horseback riding, lunch, hot springs, etc.) which was the BEST in Costa Rica!

We stayed here three nights and were quite happy with our choice.
