I found Casa Antigua online and was worried that because it was so reasonably priced, something must be wrong there, so I entered with low expectations. I called first and made the reservation directly with the owner, he didn't ask me for a credit card, only an arrival time. I arrived within 20 minutes of what I had told him and he was waiting for me at the front desk. Entering this property is like entering a friends house, lots of comfy sofas and carpets on the floor (you never see carpet in Costa Rica) and you could see that someone poured their heart and soul into decorating this place with a Persian/eclectic theme. My room was basic, but had everything I would need before flying out the next morning. The owner asked me if I was hungry before he showed me the room and I answered that I could eat, truth was, I was starving after a 3 hour bus ride from Quepos. After I got settled, I went back out to the living room and was invited to a backyard fantasy land. There were Middle Eastern lamps, people smoking hookahs, and a beautiful gardens and lights, it was a very cool vibe. The owner cooked me dinner from his Persian menu and it was AMAZING, best food I have ever had in Costa Rica, and the best tea. He told me that he would have cab waiting for me the next morning at 5am, and everything went smoothly, off to the airport I went! I would definitely recommend this place for anyone needing to crash by the airport!
