This was our first time in Costa Rica and we wanted something that felt more local, not overly capitalized and whatnot. We thought the tiki hut restaurant/bar was very cute and gave us lots of ideas for our friends back home. The pool was nice, perfect temperature for a hot day. We ADORED the fact that the mango trees above the hotel were filled with monkeys and parrots during some of our stay. The wildlife was RIGHT there, we went on adventure tours only to find we mainly saw the wildlife at the hotel. It was nice and close to the beach and nice proximity to the restaurants, supermarket and cute touristy shops. The only real downsides were no fridge (not a big deal, we just didn't want to waste leftovers), the blinds didn't quite block out all the light from a streetlight outside our room, the bed was a bit hard and the view from our room out the back window wasn't superb and could use a little tidying. As expected there is the occasional bug - mainly a couple ants and mosquitoes (partially our fault for leaving the door cracked). The stay was lovely, the staff were super friendly, quick and polite. We greatly enjoyed our stay and all of the wildlife/resident life that was there.

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
DO NOT book with this hotel i can not recommend ! NO REFUNDS!!!!! the room was nothing like the pictures. it was old and dingy, as well as VERY LOUD, near nightlife it was clean and the one breakfast i had was fine, but the room IS NOT as pictured at all! My shower did not work so i used the lower faucet to wash my hair. The drain was clogged which then caused a flood that i cleaned up and went to the office to address the issue.. Nobody was there to assist during the hours listed. i went back to the room and tried to call expedia,i wasn't able to get them. I went back to the office, still no one was there. I decided to leave ..My ride came three hours later still no one in reception. i left a note and the key in the dropbox, then sent an email, and never heard back from them. I was unable to see their refund policy. When i arrived home I called expedia and they state the hotel gives NO REFUNDS. that is $600 they kept I would NOT BOOK this hotel , there are others that a much much better, location, rooms, amenities, as well as support for the same price remember if you are not happy you have no way to recover your payment

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disappointing stay ..
Place is lacking tlc. Bed had little ants in it, damaged walls and ceiling, vanity cabinet was covered with thin worn panel with rusted screws, lighting was mixed ( white and yellow ), mattress covers barely fit and kept coming off ... I’ve been here many time before and had a pleasant experience. This was not what I was expecting to say the least.
