        Our room was very small but clean and it had a window that opened right over the water. Quite nice. The on-demand water heater kind of freaked me out - i had never seen one like it before. It worked more or less. Our room was quite noisy as it was across the hall from the supply room which had a sliding door that banged every time it was closed. The breakfast was a muffin and not a great muffin. The coffee was excellent though and you could buy really good smoothies. Smoking was allowed on the open air common area which could get kind of stinky. The manager (Ben) and Nada who worked the front desk during the day were great as were the cleaning staff. The other front desk staff though were very indifferent and not very helpful. I'm not sure I would stay here again.

        It was away from the middle of town so it was very quiet. The rooms were comfortable and at a good rate. It also has a nice back area, which is the open dining/bar right on the waterfront. There were regularly hummingbirds flying around which was nice. The staff were extremely helpful. The only drawback was that because it was away from the town it sometimes felt a little unsafe walking back at night.

        Noisey if you're downstairs

        The rooms are clean (ours had a funky smell about it) and the hotel is standard. Request a room that is not on the ground floor if you want a quiet night.

        A great view and possibly heaven for everything else.
        They had excursions to offer that cost from 20USD to 40USD.
        The staff was friendly but for the price we paid they could have had a bigger included breakfast.

        ... On Tuesday night this week, a group of 9 girls or so spent the evening together and then went to Iguana, the bar. No one was a native English speaker except me, with a mix of Dutch, German, Italian and Swiss, however everyone communicated with each other in English. Not solely for my benefit, but I still felt bad that I only know one language! It is easy to be lazy, but to be fair it is also difficult to practice too when I know everyone's ...

        ... 5pm. The following day we went diving, the visibility wasn't that great and it was the first time I was back in the water since I got the bends 1.5years ago so I was a little bit unsure at first but the second dive was a lot better which was around a sunk ferry boat, only about 12-14 metres deep. On our last day we hired a boat to take us across to the peninsular of the main land to do a tour of a chocolate farm called Green Acres, it ...

        We woke up today and packed our belongings as it was the day to say goodbye to Costa Rica. We met Branka, Christoph and Bella in the lobby of our hotel and biked into town for breakfast at the same place Gina and I ate at yesterday. I had the waffles today and again excellent. Gina had a fried egg and cheese bagel with bacon which is what I had yesterday and enjoyed it. After breakfast we returned the bikes to the shop before spending ...
