Pros: thick lush beach towels, room cleanliness, room design, animal bridges, energy saving methods, staff, restaurant, beach front, lights at night, lush landscaping, service. The room is gorgeous and well taken care of, balcony, suites with living rooms. Honestly EVERYTHING was amazing....everything single detail
I think this might be one of the top two places I've ever stayed. Example: We ordered room service. A guy came to the door with hot food, came in and upcapped the pop and set it up as if you were in restaurant plus brought bonus extra coffee for morning. This might be the most amazing customer service I have ever witness. I seriously could not believe it!
Cons: Can't think of anything at all.
Pros: The place is beatiful and nice
Cons: There were many people using the pool who were not guests of the hotel, which caused me a bit of mistrust and insecurity.
Pros: Very clean and upgraded rooms, very quiet and peaceful. This is a great place for a tranquil stay.
Pros: Nice simple, elegant design. I liked our room with a balcony designed around a tree, and the room was very convenient. We had monkeys nearly every day all around us in the mornings and evenings and it was relatively quiet. Very relaxing and comfortable. Staff was very very nice. Great value for money, would come back if ever returning to north Guanacaste.
Cons: Housekeeping was very late nearly each day, around 4pm. A bit later than would have liked. The hotel needs just a few simple touches to really amp it up - a simple potted cacti or flower on restaurant tables as well as a votive candle would significantly enhance the dining experience. Dinner quality was relatively poor, but breakfast was pretty good at a great value. After the first night we never ate in restaurant for lunch/dinner. Skimpy on coffee bags in room, had to ask for more.

Pros: This is a house like hotel, very simple but nice environment. Personel very kind.
Cons: No air conditioner
Pros: The hotel was very cozy. The rooms are very spacious. The kitchen is open for anyone to use and comes well equipped. The complimentary breakfast is good as well as the small and large breakfasts for 4 and 6 dollars, respectively. They ran out of rice and beans one day and made everything on the house for us. The rooms and clean and cozy. There is plenty of room and hammocks and chairs to lounge around. The hotel is as close to the ocean as legally possible in Costa Rica. There are plenty of shops, grocery stores, and other necessities nearby in walking distance. The staff is amazing. They help give you ideas of things to do like the nearby Monkey Farm and sunset cruises and will help set everything up for you. They will even drive you to the airport for a very reasonable fee.
Cons: Air Conditioning would be a great improvement. They do not advertise air conditioning so the buyer is fully aware upon booking. They do have multiple swivel fans in the rooms that help to cool and ventilate. The hotel seems green friendly which may be the reason for not having air conditioning. Many travelers would abuse the air conditioning, use it all day long (not just at night) and would cause the hotel rates to rise due to the electricity bill. But do not let the lack of A/C dissuade you from staying at this great hotel.
