This was a terrible hotel. The only good thing that can be said is that they refunded 3 nights when I refused to stay after the first. I usually take traveller comments with a grain of salt when someone complains that a hotel isn't clean or that the service is poor. I expect some people are hard to satisfy. I... More

We stayed here without reviewing trip advisor, mistake #1. We were on the road and needed a place last minute, so we weren't able to check trip advisor untill we were in the room...then we laughed. We stayed one night. While the hotel is undergoing some renovations it still leaves a lot to be desired for the price. The dank... More

The Terrraza is not a total dump and it does have TV and airconditioning, but otherwise they stole my shorts on the FIRST DAY, the hotel is aged and outdated, the staff is unhelpful, no internet within a 2 miles radius, really just a crap hotel.

We just got back from our Caravan tour in Costa Rica and stayed in this brightly-colored hotel for 2 nights. I was apprehensive at first due to reading a lot of bad reviews about this place and actually our tour director telling us that it definitely had its problems. But luckily, my husband and I were placed on the second... More

Do not stay at this hotel. We stayed for 5 nights and while we were there we heard of several people that were robbed by the maid service. We asked the front desk to store our belongings as we had a flight that left several hours after check out. When we returned in the late afternoon to retrieve our belongings... More

We stayed at the Terraza del Pacifico as part of a "Caravan Tour" to Costa Rica. We had read terrible reviews about this hotel, but found them to be untrue. Our room had an incredible view (our room was ocean front), with a huge veranda overlooking the beach, pool and snack bar. Our room was well maintained in every way,... More

We also stayed here as part of our Caravan Tour. Prior to our tour I had read several negative reviews about this property so I had set my expectations fairly low. Then, while on the tour, our tour director warned us not to get too spoiled by the hotels we stayed at because our last hotel was more basic. He... More

We also stayed at this hotel as part of a Caravan Tour. Unlike the last reviewer, we were in the rooms on the beach side (which we were told is the older section). Our Caravan Tour was OUTSTANDING and every other property we stayed at during the tour was very nice. This was the only property that had significant problems.... More

This hotel was the last stop on our Costa Rica tour run by Caravan. Of the 4 hotels we stayed in , this was by far the worst. Perhaps our expectations were higher based upon the previous three hotels we stayed at on this trip; nevertheless, the quality of this property was more reminiscent of a "Daytona Beach Spring Break"...
