I'm just back from a 20 night stay at Hotel Brasilito. I originally planned to stay 10 days and move on but the location along with people encouraged me to stay on.
I said to myself " when the day comes I discover nothing completely new I will move on." It never happened.
The rooms are basic. In typical Tico style the are no bathtubs, just over sized showers. This hotel though did have proper hot water - bonus for a budget hotel in Costa Rica. The beds were very comfy and I had plenty of room in the armoire for everything I brought.
There is a quiet back patio & picnic area and the best people watching patio in Brasilito out front facing the ocean. zazou2ur says its a very small beach which tells me they never moved off of the patio, Brazilito Beach stretches for 3 km, and the adjoining Playa Conchal (considered by many as the best Beach in Costa Rica) stretches another 3 km. Folks at the Best Western on Conchal are paying $350 US + for access to the very same beach.
Between the location, the food, the staff and the price I would highly recommend Hotel Brasilito. But, if you are expecting your typical American Holiday Inn, I would not bother. There are plenty of lovely beaches in the US for that.
The one drawback are the chickens next door. The roosters seem like they are up all night, so if you are a very light sleeper, bring earplugs. I got used to them after a few days.
