The place was really nice in general they have cabins well equipped for cooking and pretty clean. The main issue they have is the electricity if you are going with the plan to go to the beach or to Coiba all day will be ok, but if you want to stay all day in the cabin maybe you will suffer...

The staff (especially Pietro & Matteo) were wonderful. Very friendly and helpful. Mateo cooked 14 of us an outstanding dinner one evening which included fresh snapper, fresh mackerel, and fresh lobster pasta (I saw the lobsters moving around when they were first brought in!) and served it family style. He charged us $14 a person and then helped us bag...

Def not worth $140/night. Property is run down & needs a good cleaning & touch ups. Pietro (manager) was very nice/helpful. Lots of "rules". Diving Coiba was great. Not a lot of dining options in the town, no bars. Everything closes around 9pm. Area has potential but it's not there yet. Not many travelers in what we thought was high...

This hotel is a bit shabby and lacking some things (like more than one bowl,or even a cutting board in the kitchen) and some of the lights are burned out, but Pietro, the manager, is amazingly kind, generous and thoughtful. When the electricity went out (due to an accident miles away involving a roving horse), Pietro did absolutely everything he...

“All rooms seemed very nice”

“Bring your own shampoo and conditioner. Only bar soap was provided. If you are planning to dive, bring a fan to dry your equipment. I rinsed everything in the shower and kept the fan on my stuff at night. It was all dry by the next morning. Also, remember that the restaurant and bar is cash only. Credit cards can only be used for the rooms.”
