TripAdvisor recommend this. Spontaneously we decide to stay here for 2 nights. 45 USD/night for a budged double room is almost OK. Our rooms doesn’t had AC but it’s not needed also. Service and breakfast where good. Room in the 80s style. For the price they charged we’re totally satisfied .

The rooms are comfortable. Nothing fancy. Anthony the owner is really helpful when it comes to finding the best tours. The guy at the bar (I think his name was Alberto) is awesome. The place is convenient. Short little walk to town...although you DO have to go back up a little hill to get back. Amazing view.

We stayed just a couple nights. It felt really homey and you can easily meet new people traveling too. The beds were comfortable and the room we stayed in was really clean. The breakfast was good for the price, not bad at all. I love how it’s a family owned business and Anthony, the owner, really cares about his customers. He helped us with making reservations. He was very personable and helpful. We also enjoyed the bar! It’s close to everything. I would definitely stay here again.

This was definitely the worst hotel we visited in Costa Rica. The room was dark opening onto the car park, the plumbing wasn’t great, the staff were surly and the breakfast awful. Avoid if possible. Luckily we were out all day and found a nice restaurant in town. The countryside around is wonderful, which made it OK

This is a great place to stay if you're young or have a family with smaller kids or are a solo traveler ~ the location is really great to town and the breakfast that's included with the price makes it a good way to start the day. But...and I hate to say this since this is family run establishment and I know they clearly care about their property...the 'door' to the bathroom was literally located next to the head of one bed and it was a broken accordion thing that didn't close and literally swung open in the breeze if you tried to close it...giving those who were walking by a clear view into not only your room but you standing at the sink. The wood paneled walls give the rooms an overall dark feeling, despite the huge picture windows that let in so much lovely light. The light above one bed was not even there although the base of the lamp was still in the wall. The bathroom was very, very tired looking. No screens on any windows meant that we had flying bugs all night but that wasn't a problem for us, just pointing it out for others who may be bothered. The remote for the TV had been taken by some previous guest so that wasn't even an option for an after dinner thing to do. All that being said, it was a good deal for the price, and the staff went out of their way to be helpful.
