Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This place has seen better days. We stayed here 14 years ago, when Pierre and Renné took care of it and really loved it. The place has been poorly maintained. The owner didn't even bother to approach us, introduce himself or welcome us. He just walked passed us as if we didn't exist. The fridge and coffee maker were broken. The pool was filthy. The website said there was a restaurant. There is not. Tge internet didn't work in our room. We had a difficult time finding staff to give us little things like toilet paper and light bulbs. During our 5 days there, we noticed other cabins didn't have running water or a working fridge. The sweet resident dog is left in the office unattended overnight. To top it all off, we were double charged and could not get a reply from them to get our money back. We are now working with VISA to get this problem fixed. Do not come here!

The reviews speak for themselves. Hopefully the owner/ manager will try and give this place some love. I suspect maybe covid or something has played a part in running this down and not enough (or not quickly enough) is being done to salvage… Positives- the grounds and landscaping is beautiful. The insects are the loudest I’ve ever heard. The space is ample with parking, washing line. Outdoor BBQ (for room 6) Negatives - owner didn’t get out of seat when we arrived despite there being bad news (1.5hr wait to sort out room- post check in time) and no cold drinks- the restaurant is shut but he just pointed out that there is a supermarket in town (I would expect any hotel to be able to provide a cold glass of water.) The room was of a very poor standard (shame as we booked for a special occasion). Quite mouldy and dark, slats missing from the window vents so heat and AC hard to manage. The main kitchen light was out and fan (which I think I read in a review in 2021) so clearly not a priority. Overall low standard to be self catering but no breakfast or bar on site. Car needed really as it would be a challenge to get food and drinks from supermarket up the gravel road for 2kms Local restaurants great and location is as described. I hope they get this place back on its feet!

rm #6 . kitchen had no soap for dishes ( we were in the rm with a kitchen, but it was a terrible kitchen , could not see at nite due to low wattage bulb in the only light in the ceiling fan) refrig was dirty , no dish towels , dead bugs and dirt in cabinets , 2 burner cook top was loose and not secured to cabinet top and Greasy , no toiletries , just TP, in bath room and thats it. no breakfast, no one there 24 hours. pool was dirty , booked for a week , and checked out after 4 nites and moved to a better place. not sure where the 4.5 rating came from ( note alot of reviews were from several years ago) you will not be satisfied , trust me it is not as good as the reviews show. only decent thing we got was internet. PERIOD

1. Booked villa for 6 with kitchenette but it is simply an old fridge and a gas stove located outside the cabin. Worn beds, very old plastic table.. No utensils at all to cook and just 2 knives, 3 forks, 2 spoons, 4 cups, 3 glasses....(for a reservation for 6...) 2. No toilet paper (are you kidding!), when asked gave me a half used opened roll. 3. After heavy rain toilets were not working, probably due to poor drainage installation 4. Swimming pool not adequately cleaned 5. Gardens not well maintained 6. Just one staff at front desk with not enough experience 7. Restaurant closed. My overall impression: hotel may be under low booking and was not investing enough in regular running staff operations. They need to decide if they need close the hotel for a while or if they really want to be ready for guests.... The hotel cost is below average in the area... but.... for saving some few money per night we really had a terrible experience. The cost:benefit ratio of this hotel is bad. Decided to leave that same day and owner/manager was not friendly at all, returned our money without apologies or any consideration to our terrible experience.

We decided to stay the night in Ojochal recently, and picked Diquis Del Sur because we had visited it 5 years back and remembered how impressive it was. It was nicer than we remembered, and the plants and trees are stunning. Many fruit trees were in production. You could spend hours walking around the property if you are interested in plants or birds. The cabin was simple yet very clean and comfortable, and air conditioning wasn't needed. The patio of the cabin was a nice spot to sit and relax. The Tico style breakfast was delicious, as was the coffee. It was some of the best gallo pinto that we've had. If you are looking for a reasonably placed location with private cabins, beautiful grounds and a delicious breakfast, Diquis Del Sur may be perfect.

We were unhappy with our villa. We thought we booked with kitchenette. Might be our mistake. But compared to other villas in this area, this place needs an update. One matras was totally worn out, no back support. Some electricity switches not ok. The house just felt unclean. A refrigerator outside, but totally worn-out. Reception was friendly as well as the parrot. We managed to make a deal and cancel the second night.

Responded 27 Jul 2019
Is sad to see people expressing such as negative as you are when is not true. When the mistake was make by you, you booked a room without kitchen and that´s all the problem you had, then you did not want to continue and stay another night, is not fair what you do. We as hotel cancell your second night for free, even when we lost that night but you not happy look for us here to give us a wrong and negative review. The electric problem was just a burn bulb that is all. About the matress is not true we change all mattresses 5 months ago and never had a bad review about that. As humans we have to learn to be gratefull, and do not cause problems or talk wrong about someone or something when was Our mistake for book the wrong room. You left the hotel and did not pay your drinks from the night before, why you did not mentioned that on here?? We are so glad we allowed you to leave, we are a happy hotel and we do not like to keep persons with that poison behavior in our property. Be happy, good luck!

I had booked a two-night stay at a different nearby hotel, but wasn't able to stay there because they were unexpectedly temporarily closed so they booked me at Diquis Del Sur. The staff at Diquis Del Sur were super friendly and nice. The room was adequate--no TV, no AC, and the mattress seemed thin and well-worn, as I could feel the bedsprings and it wasn't the most comfortable. Wifi didn't work in the room, but it worked at the pool and restaurant areas. I was hoping Diquis Del Sur would have a full restaurant so I wouldn't have to drive for dinner, but I found some nearby places to eat. I did get a beer and drink at Diquis Del Sur to hang at the pool and watch the sunset from the upper deck. Breakfasts were fine. I loved the mix of music they played--songs I hadn't heard for years and some new ones, too.

We arrived on 3/10/2018 in the afternoon. In general, the place is nice with lots of green areas and they even have fruit trees for you to enjoy. Rooms are ok, nothing fancy. But I did find a few things I did not feel comfortable with: 1- I payed extra money for A/C which was not working in one of the rooms. Luckily, they agreed on a refund as i payed extra for the A/C. However, they did not offer us an extra fan instead of the faulty A/C, and trust me you need a fan in that place as it is very hot in there. 2- Room was dusty. It was everywhere, under the bed, in the sheets, in the furniture, in the windows, in the ceiling. I mean, I was expecting a bit of dust as this place is located in the woods, but the room sure looked kind of dirty. 3-The sheets on every bed had stains and i am certain they are very very old. Some had holes and smelled like somebody else used them the day before. 4-The restaurant is not open all day. And you have to reserve if you want to eat there at night. Only wish they mention that when I booked, or when I checked in. On the bright side, everyone was friendly, breakfast was tasty and the place is near beaches and waterfalls. Place is a bit pricey though. I would have expected more attention to details for that kind of money.

Response from DiquisDelSur, Director de Relaciones con Clientes at Diquis Del Sur
Responded 19 Mar 2018
Thank you very much for your response Mr. Luis Ferreto, we appreciate the opinions of all our customers, more when they are as demanding as you, even when we keep the most competitive prices in the area with all the services included in the family room that you rented with an Average price of $ 27 per person, which is not found in similar hotels in the area. We are not a fancy five stars hotel, we are a familiar ecolodge. We will review the dust, but the dirt of the sheets is not possible because we have strict laundry systems. Ojochal is located in the coastal strip of the South Pacific so it is clear that the temperatures are not equal to the Central Valley, most of our customers do not experience any heat problem because there is an abundance of trees in the property and we are higher from sea level so the temperature decreases during the night. We regret your experience with the A / C but consider that you were not charged for the use of the room in which it worked well. We have ceiling fans in both rooms so we did not think it was necessary to carry an additional fan, you could requested it and we would have gladly helped you. We mentioned the restaurant's schedule when check-in, we are sorry you arrived when we were near to close. Again, thank you very much.
