Great hotel, spotless, German owner, so it's spotless, and has great attention to detail. The hotel has no beach access, the location is almost like a 'motel' by the highway, light sleepers might even hear some distance truck noise once in a while from the highway. It's a small facility, so there is not much to do apart from sleeping,...

We had excellent service from the second we arrived at the hotel. It was late and they insisted on taking our bags to our rooms for us. They helped us find activities near Dominical and led us to good beaches. They were always kind, cleaned our rooms, and we were happy!

While I can only speak to the rooms on the lower side of the property, they are tiny, hot, lack any cross ventilation, dark and not at all worth the money. The service is very very very slow. The bed sheets were stained with blood. The towels are minimum. The AC and fan can barely cool the room and there...

I am sorry to hear your comment and to learn that we couldn´t full fill your expectations. I believe is a matter of likes, some of our guests love the category of rooms you stayed at, they like the jungle surrounding them and the view and sound of the birds and other animals.Please accept our apologies.

We stayed in a bungalow and absolutely loved it. The view (jungle!!) is amazing and everything you need is there. Even a nice hot-tub wich is surrounded by jungle. The staff is very well trained and Uvita and Dominical are nearby.
