We found this place by chance while touring the coast of Costa Rica. We could only spend one night, which is too bad... it is a nice hotel with great service.

The rooms were large, neat as a pin and comfortable. The pool and area are small, and unfortunately there is no bar or restaurant, although they do serve a wonderful cooked breakfast, which was included.

The setting is not great, being beside a couple of run down houses, and the beach is a few blocks away. The closest restaurants are more than a stroll away as well.

I can’t say enough nice things about the staff, they were wonderful in every respect.

It was one of the nicest places we stayed our whole trip and I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Stayed: January 2018, travelled with family

The hotel is very attractive with a lot of pretty wood, tile and plants. Everything is very clean and breakfast is delicious. We loved the pool. It has jacuzzi jets at one end with benches and a swimming area in the middle. The seven year old in our party loved the pool. We saw an iguana from the breakfast area, saw birds, and heard geckos. Our room was next to a sitting area with a view of the ocean across a field with horses. The location worked really well for us, it is a short walk to town and the beach.

The staff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful, we especially enjoyed Paola.

Be ready to pay cash for tours booked through the hotel, it was not clear before the tours and we got surprised. Verify details of tours too, on one kayaking tour the tour company was surprised about the seven year old and so we did not have the right sized equipment.

Overall we had a fabulous stay.

The personal is very kind, the breakfast is good (Fruits, coffe, orange juice, Gallo pinto and eggs), the rooms is nice, the pool is small but nice to spend some time before to go to the bed, and is near to Cangrejal beach that is a nice beach, Samara beach and Carrillo Beach are near to.

Nice and quiet location, just outside the city centre. Very clean room with a nice big bed. Beautiful little pool, and free breakfast is a bonus. Cristina and her staff were super friendly and helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel, and would love to come back!

This hotel is a bit basic, but the rooms are clean and well equipped. Christina offers wonderful hospitality. Breakfast was free. The kids in our group enjoyed the small pool. The beach is a 10-minute walk away. Would love to come back here if I ever make it to Costa Rica again
