We have been coming to Costa Rica for 16 years now and we are also residents. We stayed at Clandestino 3 years ago, and it was almost perfect then. It was a highlight of our trip then and we have referred many people to this hotel, sadly things are not what they were before. The Arrival This trip we stayed in January 2021. For 2 nights. Upon arrival to the office, we were greeted by the receptionist that was dressed like a total prostitute. Super short skirt with her butt almost hanging out, and her breasts about to fall out of her shirt. My wife told me there was literally nipple showing. It was extremely uncomfortable. After driving 2 hours from San Jose, we reluctantly continued to check in, which after completing check in we were shown to our room. The tour to our room was- “this is your room, don’t put paper in the toilet”. That was it, nothing more, almost like we were bothering her for coming. The receptionist quickly left the property. I had to go find the bartender to get the Wi-Fi access information. The receptionist that checked us in is the partner of the European owner that checked us in 3 years ago and gave a full proper tour of the room and property and was quite pleasurable then. Not now. Not anymore. It is the “give us your money and leave us alone” attitude. The Room To put it in short – maintenance has not been performed as it should have been.
