I'd say there were about 50-60 slot machines, with lots of variety and updated games, as well as card games in the other room. The cashier changed my US $ into colones with no currency exchange fees. Waitress drinks were cheap ($2 US for a rum & coke) and they came around quite often to serve you. There were a...

Great Hotel for fun and relaxation. Right at the beach and at the heart of the city at a walking distance from everything. Nice bar open day and night where you can find company. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the food is good, and the girls are pretty, and the hotel is safe.

It's a really fun place for partying. It's not a family atmosphere to be sure but it is the best at what it does do. If your passing through the region or a group of guys looking for a great time, this is a must see.

I stayed here for two weekend nights by the pool. It was extremely noisy in the evenings all the way past 2 am because of the bar activities and music are right out side your door.The rooms are very basic. More in line with a $50 hotel so the rooms are very overpriced.The location is fine. Many restaurant options and...

Some may frown at the notion of this location. But it's quite entertaining. It must be understood that you will be approached by ladies of the evening offering their services to you. And that's their Cup of tea. If you let them know you are not interested in their services they will leave you alone. They will recognize that that's...

Very nice place for adult entertainment, the beach area is a sight to see and one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. I would advise anyone that is looking for a good time to visit this hotel.
