I visited La Ponderosa on September 2013 and I can honestly tell you that it's one of the nicest places I have ever seen. The room, el Nido, was small but cozy, AC, TV, etc. worked great and was very private; the gardens are very well kept; everything is very clean, the place is beach front; the pool is clean and very well maintained; and they even have a 24/7 mini bar service.
I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a relaxing vacation in the wonderful south of Costa Rica. The owner, Angela, gladly helped us out on the phone and once we got here.
