Very nice property, close to the beach, restaurants and grocery store. Spacious, clean rooms. They upgraded our room at check in to include the extra bed, which kids were thrilled about. Great, friendly hosts. They offer breakfast option, which worked out well and included fresh fruit and choices for hot meal (traditional and omelette). And one morning they offered us to try something new, which we did. All were delicious. There is also a nice, well maintained swimming pool, where we relaxed in the evening. Would highly recommend.

Smaller than I thought. Room was very close to pool and noisy in the evening. Loud banging in room above us. Alberto and Nelly very pleasant and helpful. Staff friendly. Breakfast adequate.

Great customer service and very well upkept hotel. Roberto definitely cares about the hotel and his customers. He's passionate about his work. it is family owned and you can tell they work hard as a family to make this hotel a great place for their customers. The pool was another highlight, very clean and well decorated. We went to the pool every day. In my opinion, the pool was even better than the beach itself. Having a balcony was a plus as well. One improvement I would add is to have a "room service" tag/sign available for customers to place outside the door in case someone does not want the room to be cleaned/serviced. We will definitely stay here again next time in Costa Rica! Hotel is very close to the beach and the restaurants. There is a restaurant a few seconds walk from hotel called Soda Hermosa, great food and juices. We had breakfast there daily. Thank you again Roberto and family for making our stay a pleasure! Until next time Costa Rica 👍

Our stay was excellent. The staff took much care in assuring all of our needs were met. The breakfast taste great, and the staff even arranged for a taxi to pick us up in the morning to take us to the airport. If your looking for good value and service while in the Costa Rica Playa Hermosa area, look no further this is the place.
