Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disliked: Staff & service
It was good if you need a place to crash on the cheap and aren't in the room much. I was spending all my days exploring, relaxing at the beach, and morning and evening yoga class. It was really nice to have a full fridge and stove. Room is really big. Curtains are sheer which I kinda thought was weird for evening privacy.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Rooms are old, extremely basic. Price is high .
Unfortunately this was a last minute pick and a poor one. Rooms are very old, bare, nothing there. For the cost we expected quite a bit more.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Convenient hotel
The apartment was so comfortable and service was excellent. It's close to several beaches allowing to explore. Unfortunately, you cannot make noise after 8pm, when other hotels request quietness after 10pm.

3/5 Okay

Good hotel in a beautiful location
Like most things Costa Rica, impossible to find without local knowledge. Get area for rustic, less traveled. The beach is beautiful and several local restaurants are great for food.
