We were running late after taking the ferry across the Gulf of Nicoya and needed a place to stay on our way to the Northern Pacific beaches. So we stayed here without checking online first. What a relief to get a king bed with good linens and matress, large clean room, roomy hot water shower, and plenty of air conditioning.... More

There were plenty of ants in our room. When we complained someone came from reception (within minutes) sprayed the room then swept up the dead ants.... More

Five of us, three rooms. We checked into this place after looking at one room. Looked modest but clean. One couple entered their room to find hundreds of creepy crawling bugs near the a/c unit. It was gross. They moved to another room. Went into my room and it looked ok. Went into the bathroom and there were large ants... More

We stayed here one night in early February enroute to Playa Carrillo. Very pleasant grounds with pool and restaurant. Rooms are air conditioned and spacious. Easily accessible and just a short drive from the center of Nocoya.
