My husband and I stayed one night at this hotel in March (2013). We had come from the beach in Guanacaste and just stayed one night because we had to take the plane back to EU from Liberia at an insanely early hour the next day (about 4.00 A.M.).
We arrived at night and were warmly greeted with fresh fruit (the best on earth - and I am from Latin America so I know what I am talking about) and such warmheartedness: it felt like we were coming home to our own family. Our room was big, bed huge, everything super clean. I am extremely picky with cleanliness and I had not one bit to complain about. The bedroom had airconditioning which was great after a little too much sun. We also had a great TV (which I dont usually need in CR) which was a nice distraction from my sadness of having to leave the next day.
The town center is just 10 -15min away. My husband and I walked through the barrio (neighbourhood) to the center and went out to eat. The neighbourhood feels authentic, safe (as a Latina I always have my eyes open for safety), with locals playing football, dogs running around the dusty roads, kids playing around ... it felt just how it should - not artifical, just natural.
When we got back late from dinner we were asked if we wanted breakfast the next day and we said "no,no" because the next day we had to leave much too early. We were insisted upon and I cannot tell you: we had the most amazing, HUGE, breakfast ever at that hour!! We were served freshly made smoothies (with that AMAZING fruit they have!!) and had the typical, but OH MY LORD - tasty casado-plate with rice and beans, the best plantains, eggs (as one wished), bacon, saussages , more fruit, toast... it was amazing. I was also so happy with them at Javy, I was in tears when we left... I cannot tell you the heartwarming feeling we had there...I felt like hugging the lady.
I have never felt such warmth with such uniqueness..and I have travelled to so many countries around the world. I felt like hugging everyone there.
The hotel itsself is sweet and full of green plants that one can see are taken care of with such love. The price is incredibly low (and as a young family we are on a tight budget) for great quality which is hard to find anywhere now a days!
I will never forget the one night here at Hotel Javy - finally a hotel in Costa Rica that trully reflects the slogan of the country "Costa Rica - with no artifical ingredients"
We wish Hotel Javy and its family as well as all future guests all the best.
The warmest greetings from Switzerland!
