Impressive Hotel in a quiet location
Posted May 22, 2016
Prior to arrival arranged direct with reception to pick up from Liberia airport. Taxi was waiting on arirval, cost added to the bill so no problems paying after a long journey. On arrival at the Hotel very pleasantly surprised to receive an upgrade to an Ocean View Suite from a Junior Suite. Had a lovely two week stay at the beginning of May '16, all staff we came in contact with were very friendly and helpful, and went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. This included all front desk staff, maids, restaurant staff and even the gents who attended the car park. Restaurant food was to a good standard (although not spectacular), cost was resonable and in line with other restaurants locally and other parts of Guanacaste. Coco Beach is a 15 minute drive away (nearest banks, shops, range of restaurants and bars). All public areas of the hotel / restaurant are cooled by fans and 'natural ventilation, only. A/C only in suites. Pool nicely designed but quite small, and we did not use. Safe to swim from beach, at least when we were there. Make the most of the location; Brown Howler Monkeys, Black Iguanas, Squirrels and many species of birds (Parrots, Parakeets, Caracara, Kiskadee, Pygmy Owl, Motmot, Gnatcatcher, Magpie Jay, Wren, Pelican, Frigate Birds, Doves etc) can all be seen in the vicinity of the Hotel if you keep your eyes open.
