We have been met with exceptionally warm hospitality and friendliness. From the airport staff, to the shuttle driver, to the rental car agent, everybody has been …

28 Feb Thursday: MGGT-MRLB (Liberia, Costa Rica) 3.7 solo; MRLB MRPV (Bolanos) near San Jose 1.0 solo

    Reception was excellent--friendly and wonderfully accommodating. The room was clean and well-equipped. The pool was amazing. The gardens were beautiful. Requests were handled promptly and politely. Our car was parked securely. We traveled with two small children and felt our needs were more met above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you!

    Blow dryer did not work, trouble getting adequate towels for family of 5. Bathroom cleanliness suboptimal. For price, less than expected. Otherwise good location, friendly service.
