Best location in the peninsula,peaceful, cab&local bus service to downtown and cheep. Very friendly staff, kitchen open almost all day. Good bar and swimming pool. Wish they had arrangement for coffee and cold drinking water and wifi in the room. Wifi only in the lobby. But front desk lady was nice enough to help us when we needed some thing out of the norms.
The hotel was very close to the ferry to Nicoya Peninsula. The hotel was extremely nice with lovely pool and outdoor area...the staff was friendly and helpful. The neighborhood was very poor and run down around the hotel. The neighborhood was very run down and nothing was within walking distance as far as markets, etc. We did drive to a little market quite a ways towards the ferry and bought a few things...no problems. The people in town were very friendly.
The hotel was overall very nice,especially compared to others near the fishing pier in central Puntarenas where the bus terminal is. Never made it to the peninsula end,or where the ferry takes off from,so I cannot compare to the far west end area hotels. The hotel itself was great.BUT the playa close to the hotel was absolutely atrocious,abominable, littered with plastic and junk that had drifted in during high tide. It seems there is no respect for the environment and is not cleaned up by anyone.
