Clean, comfortable rooms
Posted Nov 22, 2016
I reserved a "Premium" room in mid-November. Although the air conditioning system is still being renovated, the weather wasn't hot so the rooms were perfectly comfortable at night. You can also open the windows, and the staff provided a very big, powerful table fan (abanico) with 3 power levels which worked perfectly (at the lowest level) to circulate the air.
A small microfridge and a security box also came with the room. The security box in my original room wasn't working, so they moved me to the room right next door (with an identical layout, but even nicer furniture by the window, including a full sofa!). You digitally enter your own security code, and every time you open the box you can program a new code (or the same one) before locking it again. Room had nice big flat screen S*msung TV.
The staff were superfriendly. You can exchange your dollars for colones, or vice versa, right at the hotel's casino (rate was $1 to 560 colones). You can get complimentary bottles of purified water there too. The included breakfast buffet was good: scrambled eggs (or omelets made to order), hashbrowns, bacon, fruit (usually pineapple, papaya, mango), coffee/tea, bread (there's a machine to toast it), sausage, etc.
I would DEFINITELY stay there again. I took off half a point for the air conditioning and bad security box, b/c for me personally these things weren't a big issue (b/c of nice weather, and getting moved to a slightly nicer room).
