Sad face IconDisliked: Amenities
The property had a good central location, and there was a beach when the tide was low. There was a pool, but we did not go in it. The room had a much to be desired though, broken chairs (like missing legs), VERY squeaky mattress (rolling over would wake someone up), only one very dull knife for preparing food (it was so dull it would not even cut soft fruit), cleaning service was only every other day and it was basically only a towel refresh/make the bed. If you are looking for a place to just rest your head--then this place will work, but if you are looking for a place that you would want to enjoy a nice relaxing vacation at--I would find another location.

The property was not maintained. Air conditioning was not working, Staff was unable to speak or understand English. The resort only had one other guest. The property was run down. Did not feel safe.

1/5 Terrible

This propery is not for you. First, while most worldwide hotels let you cancel in the 24 or 48 prior to visit with no penalties, they have a 2-month policy. Like if they were a 5-star hotel that needed months in a wait-list to get a reservation. If you make a reservation, and it's less than 2 months away, please be aware there's no way to cancel it without penalties. In my opinion this is a scam, and as a costarrican myself, I am ashamed of the illegal and dirty practices some places have in place, to take advange of foreigners. Second, it's impossible to call them to request a cancellation. Even Expedia tried several times, with not being able to contact anyone. Before making a reservation here, read all reviews and how bad all visitors speak lately of this place.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The location was not bad. It was run down. Upon arrival there was no soap and kitchenware was incomplete. The fridge did not work and the safe didn’t either. The Mattress was flipped on the wrong side, and the furniture and windows were dirty. The bath and toilet was run down and stained. The toilet did not flush often ( easily clogged). The cutlery was incomplete and the boiler was not connected for hot water. It was hard to get immediate help to fix some of these issues. Exchanging towels was a daily challenge. The balcony was useless as there were no chairs and there was an ant nest hanging outside. The street leading to our rental unit was very steep and had deep holes. Parking was very challenging due to poor road conditions and very narrow. Pool could have been enjoyable if it were not for the run down chairs and the scarcity of towels. I would definitely not come back to this place nor would I recommend it to anybody.
