Costa Verde Hotel vs. Casitas Eclipse Hotel

We are deciding between these two hotels for our 3-day stay in MA in June. Any opinions/reviews you could give me to help me decide?

Can't give you any info about the Costa Verde, don't know a thing about it. We stayed at the Casitas Eclipse in April 2007. It's a nicely laid out property, but it's not kept up well. The beds are quite hard, and the worst part is that they have a disco that's open until the early hours of the morning and the noise reaches all the units of the hotel. We were forced to keep our air conditioner running in order to drown out the noise, even though we would have preferred to leave it off. We also had a slight disagreement about charges; we think they were trying to take advantage of us on one $75 matter.

If some company bought this property, put a little money into deferred maintenance, and dropped the disco, it could be nice. But the short answer is I wouldn't stay there again or recommend it to anyone, if there's a better alternative available.

I stayed at the Costa Verde II for three weeks in January, 2007 and had an amazing stay. The grounds and buildings are well kept. The staff was wonderful and very accomodating. We also ate in all three restaurants and had great food every time. The buildings are spread out and some could be quite a hike. We were lucky to have room 12 and therefore had a great location--best view of the pacific and rainforest. We used the public bus, which has a stop in front of one of the restaurants, to get to both the beach and Quepos.

We opted for CV II without air conditioning and never regretted it. We could hear some road noice--but the trade off was hearing the birds and howler monkeys.

Costa Verde definitely exceeded our expectations. A great place.

I would opt for the studio plus rooms at Vosta Verde, they have great views. Eclipse really has little to no views from the rooms.
