The tile in the shower need to be changed. It was very slippery and I had a hard time standing without falling. The fan in one of the rooms did not work. A deadbolt lock need to be put on the front door. It only had a thumb lock with can be picked with a nail file.

I have stayed at many hotels, not only in Costa Rica, and I canvtell you the service here is only rivaled by high end hotels. I personally prefer people's pricing, not overpriced turisty spots. Highly recommended.
