Great Location. Great for kids. No bar, no food service. There are many places to get supplies nearby. You do not need a car if you stay here.

2/10 Poor

Terrible. The hotel lost our reservation and there was no one on site that could help. The lady in the front desk tried to call the manager to no avail. I would not recommend this hotel.

8/10 Very good

Beautiful national park. Not much to do at night but very relaxing. It is a true cabin with basic commodities. A bit overpriced as it is an older place Very friendly staff though. We tried to make the most of the tiny pool.

8/10 Very good

Great for economical families.
This would be great for families. No frills, but the AC worked well. It was great to have a full kitchen. Service was just delightful and very helpful. A good mid-priced option. Not a lot of restaurant options in the immediate area. No good place for breakfast.

10/10 Exceptional

Very comfortable. The only place we stayed in Costa Rica with a swimming pool and TV. The staff was very helpful although most of them spoke Spanish only. Seems to be a favorite for Costa Rican families - a perfect fit. Extremely convenient to the National Park and restaurants. Great air conditioning and a nice kitchen.

LOVED THIS!!!!!!
Our bungalow was awesome. Would have loved to stay for a week. Kitchen was fully equipped I would recommend going to grocery store before you arrive with provisions. Also pool is sweet... slide for kids. Only complaint is that we got there late and didn’t have enough time there
