For this Norteamericano, air conditioning is important and Heliconia doesn't have it.
Despite cool temps, the room was close and warm at night. On the plus side, on the 500 level, the morning rainbow and the view of the Pacific and the Nicoya peninsula were cool. The free breakfast was free because they would be embarrassed to charge for it. The hotel staff was cool and distant and refused to provide ice. A big plus: Don Luis, a "pizzaria" across the street, had a great wine list and a terrific menu that went well beyond pizza. We ate there twice.
Stay at Heliconia again? It would depend on the weather and the alternatives, but Don Luis is a definite return.
