We had a wonderful stay in this tiny but cozy hotel. Rodrigo took excellent care of us. We had the best breakfast here. One minor problem, we could never get our tv to work,called the front desk twice and still no TV. Will definitely will stay here again. Close to everything and very affordable.

Tucked away in the middle of the tourist district and backed up to the rainforest, this hotel was a perfect home base. Easy three minute walk to the ocean, bus, shops and the Park. Hearty breakfast “typical” or omelet included. Gorgeous landscaping provided privacy and intimate gathering spaces. Pool with bar and brick oven for pizza was perfect for much needed rest days. The hospitality by all the staff was outstanding. They were friendly, happy and worked well together. By the end of the week, they felt like family. Clean. Beautiful. Pura Vida.
