8/10 Very good

The property is nicely located by the ocean but you can't really swim there. It's very windy. The hotel is a bit ran down but cute. It wasn't properly cleaned all the time but it didn't bother much. The restaurant was good but there were nothing else available.

10/10 Exceptional

Wonderful, charming experience!! The room we had was spacious, "rustic-tropical" and exactly what I expected from a hotel in Costa Rica! Shower was warm, but not hot. The staff was wonderful and accommodating. The restaurant was delicious (may I suggest the fish with shrimp sauce!), waitstaff was wonderful and patient with non-Spanish speaking guests. There are also a couple other little delightful restaurants close-by if you want to venture away from the property. It was so nice to experience some of the local flavors! The beach was lovely and had access to other little private beaches. The water was a little colder than expected and the Papagayo winds were sort of non-stop & unexpected but were appreciated with the heat of the day. The sea birds put on a show every day! The sounds of the birds in the courtyard and the howler monkeys down the beach made each day very special. I would definitely stay again if I'm in the area again!!
