Cadre très sympa mais installations très vétustes

Posted Apr 1, 2015
Nous avons eu un bungallow au lieu d une chambre mais divers equipements ne marchaient pas (porte de la terrasse, lumière, jacuzzi). Le cadre est sympa mais pour moi il ne devrait pas s appeler ressort c est plus un hôtel pour aller en famille et profiter des différentes piscines et la plage

low cost, nice hotel

Posted Mar 30, 2015
Pros: What I like the most was the different ambiances and different nice pools and of course the different views.
Cons: The are some services not working like the gym or pool bar, it could give to the hotel a better rating as it could be in the past. Better maintenance
Great view, nice location, the hotel needs maintenance and it cool be much better with few simple things, like hide some old scraps of maintenance, some lights not working, ice machine not working, and some other few things, the staff is very nice and the restaurant with very good food.

staff is warm and friendly hotel was probably once a really nice place but now the toilet doesnt work , shower was missing drain plug, only two towels in room , the glass doors you have to lock manually every time in or out , iguanas though cool are everywhere and make noise at night, bed was terrible sheets hadnt been changed, pools were dirty, hottub didnt work, the place was empty and those who were staying usually checked out after 1 night very dissapointed definitely looks better than it is although the views are great hotel only 1 star at best.

Past Glory

Posted Mar 23, 2015
Pros: View. Quiet. Staff.
Cons: Repair. Invest. Improve.
Location: Coco Beach has nightlife and action 10 minutes away. Other beaches are an easy drive. Take a tour from the hotel rather than driving. Try local fruit.
This must have been an elegant hotel at one time. The layout and views are fantastic. You will not find a better place to watch the sunset in Costa Rica than the deck at the restaurant no one seems to eat at. But you can drink there anytime. The place, beach and Ocotel area seem very safe and they are very private. You will have a quiet little beach virtually all to yourself with birds, iguanas and even monkeys in the trees. The flowers, the soft waves, the black sand, beautiful shells and beach side bar/café are awesome. But don't expect everything here. The trade off is that repair and upkeep of the place is badly needed to return it to the 4-5 stars it once was. You may not always have hot water, the safe may not lock, the sliding doors take two adults to slide open, the parquet floor pieces are a daily puzzle to re-assemble, no hot in any of the hot tubs or jets that worked, breakfast of rice beans and fried plantains gets a bit old. Coco Beach with all the resturants and bars is a quick 10 minute drive if you want action. Buy some local fruit, some cold local beer and enjoy just sitting on your patio looking over the beach....

Worth the money

Posted Mar 23, 2015
It's a nice hotel in a beautiful location. We went down to coco beach everyday, which was only a $6 cab ride. The only problem we had was with the beach. There is a beach there but not what you would think when you think Costa Rica.

It doesn't look like the pictures

Posted Mar 14, 2015
It's is a hotel close to playa del coco were a lot of turist go in a walking distance . Private beach which is a plus . The pools look dirty but they aren't . The wind makes the leaves fall down into the pool a lot . Food is not the best . I will recommend you to bring your own towels and shampoo . It is not a 5 start restaurant but it is nice

Staff was extremely friendly, welcoming & helpful

Posted Mar 11, 2015
Staff was excellent, especially being a non-spanish speaker. Clean hotel, food was good. Incredible views and fun wildlife. Pools are nice and beach is right there as well. Would definitely go back.
