An OK resort hotel

2 out of 5
by from Reading, UK
Posted Apr 2, 2014
Pros: Decking/Outside area Pool Breakfast times
Cons: Problem with ceiling light in bedroom Shower temperature extremes only No AC in the bedroom - just the living space 1hr drive from Manual Antonio
Location: A long way from the ocean road (30mins) down a dirt track and then another 30mins to Quepos. But we loved Quepos and Manuel Antonio.
Myself and a friend stayed in a one bedroom with a fold out sofa. It's a 30min off road drive from the main ocean road. We had a few problems with the room, facilities and staff but over all the hotel was OK I think this hotel would be good if you were wanting to stay in the hotel for your stay - and there is stuff to do but it wasn't the hotel that we needed. When asking at reception for any local info they didn't have anything so we had to go online (which only worked in the public areas). The breakfast was good. On the first night we had their buffet dinner which wasn't up to much but it cost us a fortune when we checked out.

Remote location, but overall great experience

Pros: beautiful hikes in forest, see wildlife in nature
Cons: food not great
Location: remote, but beautiful landscape
This Hotel is only for people who love nature and are OK to sleep in the middle of the jungle. The Hotel is about 25 minutes drive with an SUV on a dirt road away from the main road. A drive with a regular car takes longer, as there are many deep bumps on the road. The staff is very friendly and helpful, but are not fluent in English. We drove There are three hiking trails that lead from the Hotel into the forest, two of them to small waterfalls, very beautiful. Horserides can be arranged. We saw a lot of interesting wildlife, such as Tukans and porcupines. The Hotel has also a small Zoo. Be aware that the standard rooms do not have TVs. Food is not great. The drive (which is fun if you like to drive off-road) from the Hotel to the Tourist areas of Quespo and Manuel Antonio is about one hour with an SUV . There are lots of activities there, including beautiful beaches.

Terrible location

by from Michigan
Posted Jan 3, 2012
Pros: nothing
Cons: location, lonely.
Location: Terrible location. Takes an hour for the 11 miles to get to this hotel from the main road.
This is a hotel in the middle of nowhere. This hotel is on a small road about 11 miles from the highway. That road is a dirt road and is in terrible condition. it took an hour to drive those 11 miles. Very lonely road and scary to drive at night. Terrible restaurant and service. You should display a message indicating the difficult drive to get to this hotel. The room was not well kept. Restaurant and food was terrible. I was driving with small kids and I repented ever booking this hotel. I am disappointed with Expedia for even suggesting this hotel.
