Great hotel in a very convenient location to visit the nearby volcanoe and many attractions. Mario was excellent and helped us out alot as we had taxis to book and problems with delayed luggage. The restaurant has an excellent menu and staff, hope to be back one day

We stayed in one of the cabins by the parking area and found it to be very private and unique.It had a fireplace ,a flat screen cable TV,and although breakfast was included they even had a coffee pot in the nicely decorated room. Mario and his staff were extremely helpful in making our stay comfortable. The restaurant served us a delicious American style breakfast with generous portions ,(I loved the Bacon). It is nicely located about 10 kilometers from Poas Volcano and from the front of the hotel you can see if the volcano is clouded up or not so you can time your trip for a good view of the crater. The only drawback is the fact that it is located on a well traveled intersection ,the traffic may disturb light sleepers.

Room Tip: we really enjoyed cabin #4

We spent a night at Churasco hotel. The owners are very friendly people.The room is big and clean. It was a separate cabania with enormous restroom. The breakfast was good too. Highly recommended if visiting Poasito. You have everything You need with excellent location for reasonable price.

About the Hotel:
GOODS
- clean
- great staff!
- owner super great!
- breakfast: really good
- parking lot

BADs
- We didn't feel safe! The rooms have the doors facing the street. Theres is a corridor with a door that is kept the whole day opened! From the office, It's impossible to see if any strange is trying to do something in the rooms! To solve it, maybe they should give you the door's key from the corridor.
- comparing to the facilities we had in others hotels around Costa Rica, this one is a little expensive! I think it could be a little cheaper to fits in what you have back! There's just a room with breakfast. There's no comum area, no reception...
- the girl didn't cleaned our room. We spoke to the owner and he explained us that the cleaner misunderstood me because I made a lot of questions about safety;
- A bit noisy! It's possible to hear all the cars passing by the road.

The owner is super nice and friendly! They could improve the safety and the price could be a bit lower, mainly out of season. This was the most expensive hotel we had in Costa Rica and was the mos basic one.

We were here in November and stayed one night. The hotel is located near the volcano and offers early the breakfast. The steaks for dinner were great. We can recommend this hotel. The staff is very friendly.

One of the only hotels in Poasito. Pretty basic but it was clean and the owner was friendly. Reasonably priced. We stayed on a Friday night and there was quite a bit of noise until around midnight. The hotel is on the corner of the two main roads in the town.The restaurant was good, too.

We were here in the off season and were one of two parties at this restaurant. The other party was a group of local guys the waitress knew. The steaks were thin but delicious with great sides and chimichurry was amazing!
had the green pepper sauce on mine and it was perfect.
A great place that im sure gets more business in the busy season because the restaurant is HUGE!
Good option in the area, eat here!
