La vista es muy bonita, pero las instalaciones muy malas, no hay restaurante, ni mesas para el area de piscina, las sillas de playa totalmente descuidadas y rotas, la piscina muy bien, pésima señalización de senderos y habitaciones, las instalaciones de habitaciones rotas, sin utensilios para comer y cocinar. El lugar puede ser mucho mejor pero tienen pésimo mantenimiento, muy caro para cómo se encuentra

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The property is at walking distance of the beach, quiet and the sea is visible from the room, however it feels abandoned, one of the the beds didn't have any linens, it was literally just the mattress and the staff didn't provide any even after requesting at the front desk. All pillows had mold and rust came out of the tap when we first opened it. Also the fridge didn't work. Would not recommend.

No es un hotel, es un apartamento, muy bien ubicado, con vista increíbles del golfo de Papagayo, lamentablemente muy incomodo para parquear el carro, no opciones para comer cerca, la salida a la playa es cerca, pero le falta mantenimiento general.

The rental was poorly maintained, the furnishings were very old and mis-matched. The rooms need to be remodeled and deep cleaned. There were none of the amenities expected for a ‘resort’. The only towel in the room was a small dish towel.

Do Not Recommend
I want to start by saying the owners are trying to make this a hospitable space. That being said, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL. Check in was easy when we arrived. However, when we got to the room the front door was left open and there were a lot of bugs in the room. I understand the hotel is very close to a beach and I have stayed at places in Hawaii that also have bugs. If they had left the door closed it would have reduced the bugs in the room. One of the beds was so hard it couldn't be used. The worst part was you have to ask for a room with hot water! We learned this the hard way and had to take cold showers for three days. When we checked out we could not find a staff member to give us a receipt, so we had to leave the room key on the front desk. The good things about this hotel is it is walking distance to a beach, the town is close by, excluding bugs the room was clean. I wanted to like this hotel, but I will never stay here again. It is worn down and needs work...and hot water.

Although our reservation stated that breakfasts were included, none were served. Please note, the kitchen/restaurant on the property is not open. They do not have the staff for it. Therefore, unless you have a car there will only be two options nearby where to eat. That being said, we enjoyed our stay. We walked every day to Panama Beach. There is also access to a smaller beach within the property. Playa Buena is 15 a minute walk. The pool was kept really neat and clean.

The freedom to walk around in clean practically private beaches. Natural surroundings with plenty of birds and animals. Spacious rooms, great cooking facilities, excellent internet service. Close to Liberia and other attractions. Very friendly staff. We will stay there again. Great to bring the grand kids. Lots of tide polls and very calm ocean to swim
