Great stay

2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Room comfort
Not what we expected
Although the place is nice, it is not possible that a Hotel that indicates on the entrance sign that it is a Luxury Hotel does not have hot water in the rooms and nobody told us. In addition there was only one shower towel for two people and not hand towel. Also the bed only has sheets, very basic and the air conditioning very noisy. The toilet paper was broken and the shower head leak water in all directions. The best thing about the hotel are its employees and the vegetation and sidewalks very pleasant.

3/5 Okay

Disliked: Staff & service, room comfort
Only if you must
Stay only if you need a stop over on the way. Staff unfriendly, tried to overcharge on an internet booking. Did not make any effort to understand my Spanish. Room large, with tv, no fridge or coffee facilities. No hot water. Torn sheet on one bed, flat pillows. Pool area is nice, but had loud music from other guests.

Nice for short stay
Good for one or to nights while in Nicoya. Staff were pleasant and rooms were fine. Nice green grounds and they were constantly trying to keep it nice. It would be nice to include breakfast for a couple more dollars. Refrigerator and microwave in room which you don;t always find.
Stayed 2 nights in Dec 2017
