We arrived at Bula Bula after a driving up the coast from another beach close to noon and could not find the reception but realized the office is behind the bar. We found our room to be on the small side but clean with local art hanging on the walls. The king size orthopedic beds are on the extreme firm side, so if a soft to medium bed is your bag, you will find it hard to sleep here. The rooms have A/C, if you want fresh air, the windows don't open. They provide nice beach towels although the room towels need to be replaced, they are on the worn side. The pool was nice, not a lot of lounging chairs although the motel was not full. The beach is a short five minute walk away. The motel grounds are well kept and the staff friendly. The complimentary breakfast was good with several options to choose from. We met Wally, one of the owners the first night although he was on his cell phone sitting at the bar yacking away and did not seem to be interested in meeting guests. We met Todd, the other owner upon checking in and spoke to him later. We now realize he is the friendlier one of the two. All in all, it was a nice B&B for the area. Their restaurant is just OK, the bar is a fun place to hang out. One word of caution, there are not a lot of restaurants within walking distance. All in all, it was a good experience. We probably would go back to this part of CR but would try another beach.
