    Great host, clean and cosy wooden cabin style rooms (some with small cute balconies). Good breakfasts of coffee, juice, fruit, eggs, toast and pillo (rice and beans).
    Nice lounge area and the hosts allow guests to make themselves at home in the kitchen.
    Quiet and peaceful, yet a stones throw from one of the main roads.
    Also, it's really close to 'Taco Taco', the best cheap eatery in town!

    The rooms are incredibly basic. Ours has a queen-size bed plus a twin bed. The queen has a nightstand - and that is the extent of the furniture. No closet, no dresser, no lamp on the nightstand, no desk, no nothing. The lighting is terrible with just one CFL bulb above the entrance and another in the small bathroom, which lacks hot water at the sink as well as a sink stopper. The room is $50/night, which strikes me as a tad high for what you're getting.

    The electricity went out on our second night here. There's no housekeeping service.

    Day 6 - going into Monteverde

    A travel blog entry by lovejezelle on Jan 11, 2014

    ... I had such a great day today. Getting to learn more about other people and just seeing what is different in their way of life in Switzerland, Germany, and Finland than in Canada. There was so much to be thankful for. The beauty of this nature is beyond me and every time I saw something wonderful, I just couldn't help think how big is this world and how little I know of it; how I pity the people who know little of what is around them, whose life ...

    ... an 'earth day' combined with a party for Father's Day so people were planting trees and then we had some lunch and Father's Day cake. In the afternoon we headed off to our hotel which turned out to be soo beautiful. Only kellie and I were staying there as the others parents lived nearby so we checked in and headed to the pool which had hot volcanic springs. We relaxed by the pool and were chatting to the barman for a bit. We got really creeped out ...

    ... We immediately rang her and she drove straight round to give it back to us. Alexa couldn't believe how lucky she had been! It turns out they had been found in the car park at ocotal beach the previous day by the security guard and he had asked the lady if she knew us. Obviously she didn't but took the cards and set about tracking Alexa down! The Padi diving licence led her to ask at one of the dive shops (by chance the one we dived with!) and they gave her our hotel and room ...
