Everything in here is perfect: the service, the rooms, the decoration, the food, the location! The staff is great! You always feel good and happy in here.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Once again the people make the place, it is a nice building and facilities but some great staff running it. We ended up with a flat tire and the bartender found a pump and got us sorted! Thx Andreas, really above and beyond! They have double rooms for kids accommodation, even bunk beds. Don't hesitate...

Yes, the last stretch of road from highway 21 is not what I would call smooth even for a gravel road, but the hotel and the food makes up for each...

Such a great place to stay, it's a bit far from the beach, but the please is beatiful, rooms are small but very clean, also the staff is very nice, and the food is great, we drove here from Samara, trough a gravel road, 4x4 recommended, though we got here in a Corolla.

1. Choose wisely the route and don't trust Waze. Road is in very bad conditions. 2. Breakfast hummm... it's included, but toast and coffee it's not a very good one, food in overall it's overpriced and does not include taxes, which is not legal in CR so be careful!!

“Upstairs rooms have less pool and restaurant noise, but everywhere gets pretty quiet after 10 pm or so.”

“I think the rooms on the upper floor would be better than the ones on the ground just for the view and added privacy. Our room was right beside the pool and on ground level with the walkway, so we had to keep the curtains drawn most times.”
