Hotelle for dig med en kraftig 4-hjulstrækker

På grund af vejens beskaffenhed nåede vi ikke op til hotellet. Det var en meget bumpet og til tider oversvømmet tilkørselsvej, så vores lokale chauffør nægtede at køre os. Vi valgte derfor at blive på “hovedvejen” og endte med at sove i Grecia, den nærmeste by. Alt endte således godt, fordi vi blev adopteret af en lokal. Hotellet kan kun anbefales til rejsende med en meget kraftig 4-hjulstrækker.

Lo único que valió la pena es la naturaleza.

La cabaña es muy bonita, pero no debería de ser tomado como hotel. Yo reservé con mucha anticipación y cuando llegamos nos encontramos con un camino rural muy dañado, muy complicado para ingresar y que por las noches es totalmente oscuro, además de que hay que cruzar un arroyo. Tienen que ir en un carro 4x4 si no quieren dejar media suspensión ahí. Además de que cuando llegamos estaban apenas haciendo limpieza. Tuvimos que salir a comer para regresar y que estuviera listo. Las habitaciones no tienen cerradura, hay que poner un candado por seguridad cuando se sale, el agua caliente es inexistente, pensé que esa noche habría agua caliente pero no, al día siguiente tuvimos que salir temprano para aprovechar el día y pensábamos bañarnos, pero el encargado se había ido y nos dejó solos, no regresó al día siguiente y tuvimos que dejar la cabaña sola y vacía. Pésima atención por esa parte y la verdad la zona es de oscuridad total en las noches, puede ser peligroso tanto por la fauna o ladrones y no hay nadie que ayude a varios cientos de metros y no hubo nadie que estuviera para hacer check out, llegó un veterinario (porque es rancho de vacas) y él fue el que me dijo que el encargado no regresaría y que así dejara todo. La verdad si les gustan las emociones fuertes y complicarse la existencia, este lugar es para ustedes. De verdad, no es por ser malo, pero sí necesitan mejorar esa atención y la infraestructura para llegar a la cabaña, es un diamante en bruto muy mal administrado.

Pros: El entorno es lo mejor, ver la naturaleza y el volcán Poás.

Cons: Necesitan mejorar muchas cosas, los accesos al hotel son terribles. El servicio es pésimo. No me pude bañar las dos noches que reservé.

Location: Pues está lejos de las cascadas, si van, vayan en una 4x4, Bajos del Toro vale muchísimo la pena, pero recomiendo que vayan a otros hoteles.
