It said on the website that it had private beach(most important reason we choose this hotel) but that's not true also the standard room doesn't have tv or a/c so be careful when choosing the excellent rate on expedia because then you have to upgrade it cause if not you will only have a fan on 95 F temperatures.

Hi Cristina, I appreciate your review of our hotel. I am surprised you thought we had a private beach. The main reason we are named Hotel Lookout is we are located above Playa Tortuga and feature expansive Ocean Views. No beach in Costa Rica is private (it is a law)--which is awesome for you as you can visit and see all the beaches. Tortuga is the first of 9 beaches in our area. It is our hope that you will enjoy nature while you are here. Therefore, no phones in the rooms. TVs and Air Conditioning in 10 of our 12 rooms. As our temperatures range from the 70s at night to the high 80s in the day, most guests find Air conditioning a nice option, but not necessary. Although I think all of this is clearly stated, I will review the website content. Again, thank you for your comments and we hope to welcome you back soon.
