This hotel was booked by our travel agency and not something we would have chosen had we made the bookings. It is walking distance from one of the beaches.

Pros:
1. Can walk to beach. Please note beach waters are chopping. Beach towel can be bought for $8.
2. Security in hotel is good.
3. Can rent cycles for $8 per day per person. Cycles need to be returned by 5 pm and rental can continue on next day.
4. Taxis available to city for a price. Please note that you have to pay round trip fees as the taxi comes in from the city to get you.
5. Cabins have a quaint look and feel.
6. TV channels have good coverage.
7. Swimming pool is decent.
8. Hotel restaurant is okay, though we did take the taxi to eat in the city on several occasions.
9. Nice frogs and other animals on site. Son enjoyed working around early in the morning. Could hear the howler monkeys at night.

Cons:
1. Can't really walk to other restaurants and places after dark.
2. Breakfast options are very limited. Even the eggs have three options - meat, onions and cheese.
3. Not a luxury hotel. Bathrooms are a little sad. The soap holding dish was missing from the shower. One could see that it had been there before and was now gone.
4. Service was a little lackadaisical. Front desk did not seem to really care very much (except for one person.)

Room Tip: Rooms at the back will have less noise.

This is the second time in 7 months that I visit this hotel with my family. It has everything on our wish list: convenient location (Cocles), beautiful and comfortable bungalows (with A/C, private bathroom with hot water, free Wi-Fi, tv with cable and hammock) in the middle of the jungle, awesome pool with wet bar (Junior the bartender is awesome too!), delicious buffet style breakfast included, super friendly customer service and reasonable prices. The only reason why I didn’t give them 5 stars is because our room had only 2 beds and we needed 3, but they resolved it quickly and brought us an extra bed right away. We will definitely be staying there next time we’re in town.

I was upstairs in a four-plex building. The room was clean and the a/c was sufficient. The resort is nice just older. The staff were very nice and the food was great. few min walk to beach. All was very good.

Recently went with the family to Costa Rica and stayed on the Caribbean side for 2 days to see the sites. We booked this hotel from the many reviews and pictures. We got to the hotel late at night (10:00 pm). We had alerted the hotel the previous day that we would be arriving late as we were driving from the Pacific coast. We arrived in the rain after a VERY long drive. The hotel manager met us where our rooms were located...no outside lights, pouring down rain and had to walk a path in the pitch black upstairs with luggage and kids in tow. Finally got into room and the smell of the cleaning solution used was overwhelming. Room was right on the noisy street side. We woke up the next morning, had the breakfast (which was limited for what we were paying to stay here). Staff wasn't friendly or helpful in anyway. The walls are extremely thin as we could hear everything next door. We did have one AC unit in our "beach front" room, however it just cooled one area of the room. Shower was clean, which is a plus. For the amount of money you pay to stay here, they should be more accommodating, the breakfast should have more selection and overall the staff should be more welcoming.

The property is amazing & the service & hospitality of the staff & manager Ziggy.is A-1.

A great beach is right across the street but the hotel has a beautiful pool with swim up bar if you want to swim with a jungle feel.
