Beautiful and well kept gardens, rooms clean, comfortable and very cute. Lots of chairs to sit in, clean and refreshing pool and Edwin runs the kitchen/ dining area and is a great cook! Ask him for his special drink- the Edwin Special- it's wonderful! Coffee/tea is available by the pool early in the morning before breakfast. You can walk to the small local zoo- Zoo Ave, which has really nice exhibits, is clean and all shaded. Please note that entrance fee is twice that of the locals , which I think is a bit unfair and could cause foreign visitors to stay away. You can also walk down the street to local eateries.
I would advise you to communicate clearly on price for taxis and transportation. I had a group of 7 and made arrangements well in advance for transportation for the group to Sarchi and was told the taxi fare would be $20 round trip - total. When we returned the driver told me the cost was $150!!! I had copies of all email correspondence between me and the hotel that clearly showed me asking if that If the $20 was the total for my group they repeatedly said yes. They shrugged their shoulders and said sorry, that they meant it was $20 per person. It put a real damper on the travel budget and otherwise nice stay. I felt they should have honored their quote and paid the driver themselves, but I didn't want to be one of those ugly American tourists.
