Artistic wood work through out. Rooms were clean but a little outdated. Grounds need a lot of work. There are two pools, one was very clean and the other seemed quite cloudy. The staff are very pleasant and go out of their way to make you feel at home. There is free wifi in the

We booked here because we wanted a nudist stay. It was very quiet and there were only two other couples on the resort during the week. The staff is great and the grounds are awesome and the view is wonderful but...the owner needs to get involved and get this place fixed up. It

Nice quiet get away above San Jose. We got room 105 like everybody recommends and got to the hotel after dark and the view of the lights of San Jose down below was breath taking! Our room was very clean everyday as were the hotel and grounds. The hotel itself has amazing

Enjoyed our stay. We were there during the off season and loved running around enjoying nature and meeting all the travellers. Felt like kids again. No it's not a 5 star luxury resort, but who wants that when you have a chance to meet people from the local area and from

Response from john0123, Manager at Hotel Desire Costa Rica
Responded 24 Dec 2015
We are sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us.We have no control over the roads of Costa Rica,this is a government issue.There is 3 roads leading to the hotel and all GPS's pick the shortest way to the hotel.That road is the worst.Again we have no control over this.As in every other hotel you have guests touring,guests that checked out early and guests coming later to check-in over our 6 acres.So sometimes it can look empty till dinner time.Our staff is versatile,wherein many hats,or they went to the bathroom.Wi-fi is sometimes a problem to keep it working over the 6 acres,but the pools,restaurant and main house always work.If a customer does not like their room we will be glad to move them to another room with working wi-fi.But talking to us that was not their concern raised,they just wanted to party now with other lifestyle couples.We are high enough in the mountains,that mosquito's is a none issue.Their cancellation for a refund was 14 days prior. Again we are sorry that they did not enjoy their stay with us,but we can not guarantee that other couples will play with them,nor are we responsible if this does not happen.
