1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family and small children
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Location was great - right next to the National park but it is showing it’s age. I got bitten by a wasp (incredibly painful). There was a hive right outside our door and no one seemed to care. I also could not adjust the temp of the AC - it seemed fixed. Sweated all night. Plumbing was a bit wired as well. Switching on the wash basin tap seemed to cause dripping in the shower every time. Very strange.

I reported some loose towel rack and faucet which they response right away to fix the issue. I would stay there again since it is next to national park and the beach.

Loved the location right next door to Manuel Antonio National Park with a shortcut to beach. A leisurely 10 minute walk along the street to purchase from vendors, get to restaurants, beach and activities.

Comfortable and Clean but no Hot Water
Beds were comfortable, hotel is well maintained for an older property. However water in shower was cold for 3 days in a row, never had a hot shower which was awful.
