    Nice neighborhood to stay if you like to avoid the crowds and enjoy stunning views of the volcano. The place is simple, although a little pricey (5 dollars for a beer). The staff is really kind and always available for giving information on local activities....More

    Is your hotel comfortable with a gay couple? We are visiting Costa Rica later this year and, though we're a very conservative and discreet couple, we don't want to be in an uncomfortable situation or unnecessarily make hotel owners or staff uncomforable. Thanks,
