  • 8.0.Very Good

    The location is excellent. Staff has downsized I guess because of covid-19, thus service is affected.

  • 6.0.Good

    Rooms are very nice, recently remodeled. Hotel grounds need maintenance. Hotel is under staffed. There is a lot of room for improvement but also lot of potential. We liked the beach front location. We enjoyed our stay, and hope hotel improves. Will probably go back and enjoy the nice rooms and the beach.

    Nice place, quiet, next to the beach, plenty of privacy, what i dont like about the place was the service i was there for a week and no body was there to clean the room or change the towels, i have to ask for soap and toilet papers, when you ask for food they also said that it was nothing to eat at the hotel, l have to drive for food my whole time that i spend overthere.

    Mexican Flag? in this case a red flag

    My wife and finished some business in San Jose early and decided on a few nights on the beach. We had stayed at the hotel a few years back and were very happy. First thing: we noticed was the Mexican flag flying out front, no big deal, just different (are we still in Costa Rica). Second; We couldn't get in the gate. I finally went in the guard shack and found the 'green button'. Third; We ordered 2 Imperials beers to take to the beach while our beer was cooling down in the refrigerator. The wanted $16 for them. We gave them back. Fourth: Only one pack of marmalade in the hotel for breakfast Fifth: Internet was very bad Sixth: Bacon? Not quite, some kind of processed stuff formed in the shape of bacon Seventh: Needed to open a personal bottle of wine, they aske for $10.00. I used my wife's toothbrush, thanks honey! Eighth: After a long day of drinking wine we wanted some bottled water, nope, all out. Ninth: After several failed attempts to get a good breakfast (how many ways can you screw up eggs, well, they found them all) my wife decided on pancakes, no bad at all but it took 10 minutes to find the syrup. We are agreeable travelers and easy to get along with, in fact the Ticos working at the place were great. It is the owners fault that the hotel is stocked with inferior food product, the staff is poorly trained and understaffed. One could speculate why the owner insiste on this property loosing money....

  • 2.0.Poor


    The issues with this property range from the serious to the comical. The most serious being their lack of security and support in an emergency. No guard at hotel gate on numerous occasions. There is no 24/hr security. Someone banged on our glass door at 2am with a flashlight and when we called the front desk for help, no one picked up. The next morning staff confirmed that “no, there is no one here at night”. There is no bottled water available. There are no tissues. The room did not come with a phone. The toilet paper is one ply. There are no wash cloths. There are is no glassware in the room. There is no shampoo. Multiple requests for shampoo ended with nothing. We bought our own shampoo in town. The lights in the hallway of the 200 building were not on at night and staff did not know how to turn them on. There was a gigantic hornets nest at the entrance to our building. There was an ant infestation in our bathroom. The common hall is very dark, but more than half of the lightbulbs are out and not replaced. Shower head has not been cleaned so does not spray more than 50% of capacity. Pool bar unmanned and unstocked, not functional. The website claims this is a world class hotel, but that is categorically untrue. This is a motel that dares charge you $250+ a night to provide none of the value. They flat out lie about their amenities and services. Do not give them a penny of your money until they stop misleading you.

    HIGHLIGHTS: The staff. They do their best to help. The whole hotel was renewed and its in excellent conditions. Clean and really nice. I would stay there again. LOWLIGHTS: The restaurant. First of all the prices are way too high for the quantity and quality. For lunch or dinner worth to drive to Jaco and get a lot of places to get good and cheap food. On top of the prices, we had to wait 40min to get our breakfast due to some problems im the kitchen.

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    We arrived at the gate and there was no one there to open it. After calling them, someone came and opened it up. We were welcomed to the place and started enjoying it! It's a beautiful place right next to the ocean, very quiet, hardly any people during our stay. Would love to go again!
