This little place could be a gem in the jungle, but it seems to be getting rather tired. It just needs a little shining uup. The rooms were clean, the staff was very nice and helpful, the location is okay, but there's something missing. I think if there was a little more attention paid to the grounds upkeep it would look fresher. I wanted to grab a rake and get to work. Maybe I should have!! :) There needs to be more of an open area with chairs for sitting comfortably. The main restaurant area is nice but kind of gloomy after a while. A pool at this property would be an amazing addition. The beach is pretty close but a cute little swimming pool onsite would be fab.
We stayed in the small budget room next to the kitchen and the cabin was clean and the noise level was fine, but there's an exposed sewer pipe off the porch that might need some attention. The wafting odor occasionally had us looking at each other with a grimace. The breakfasts were amazing, but the food off the specials nightly that we tried were simply average and once it was just downright not good. Not sure what the "Caribbean Barbecue" night was all about. :)
So, although a lot of the reviews here are stellar for the Hotel La Costa de Papito I'm wondering if they've been to a couple of other hotels we've stayed at in the area that are over the top beautifully done and much closer to grabbing the five star rating. All in all it was an okay stay.
