Great little hotel. Placement is quiet far from the nightlife just enough to enjoy the beach quietly and relax with the kids.

Not Quite What We Expected
We chose this place basically as a crash pad since we arrived late our first night in Costa Rica, and it served that purpose. There was a mix-up about someone meeting us at the airport (they didn't show), and the room we were led to was not the one we booked, but we rolled with it. I believe there was mention of a breakfast, but there was nothing (the attached French Bakery mentioned was closed and empty). Olivier, the bartender that the clerk pulled over to interpret for us was fun, and helpful.

The property is on the beach which is perfect. Otherwise I would facilities are below average. An old hotel with old fixing. Room looks like it hadn’t had a good scrub in a long time and ants crawling around throughout the room. Would not stay there again if I had a choice.
