Positive reviewers are right:the staff is friendly, the breakfast OK, the rooms clean (may be with a somewhat chemical smell) and we felt safe. BUT...there are some negative aspecs to relate too: perhaps the staff is sometimes too friendly. We tried to sleep at Villa Dolce one night when there was a big group of American schoolgirls (and maybe some boys) in the hotel. They had a lot of fun. At 10 PM the staff tried to calm them down, but the laughter and loud talking went on until 1.30 AM. No staff acting anymore. So we were personally asking the girls twice to realise there were people in the hotel with the purpose to sleep, but their fun was more important. At our appearence the started even screaming as if we were gosts comming from an other world!
As all the rooms have view on the garden, the communal area is also in this garden and as the garden is surrounded by 4 walls (2 where the rooms are) everyone can enjoy everything hapening in the garden very clearly. For us this was not fun, as we had planned to get up early!
Second remark: this hotel has been the one and only place in Costa Rica where they charged us an other extra10% when paying with our Credit Card....
