Cabinas Monte Sol
Reviewed 10 May 2007

This was by and large the worst accomodation I stayed in in Costa Rica! I stayed in some very budget hotels with Costa Rican students I traveled with but this one was.. really horrifying.

The linens on the bed were pilled, and I felt very wary of the accomodation because the locks seemed easy to get around, though there were deadbolts. The "windows" were unscreened, with heavy wooden boards (you could see through the space between the slats) acting as shutters. There was a small area outside with a hammock. There were also non-vicious guard dogs that barked constantly through the night at even the slightest noise.

Also, I was staying in the room with a girl that I knew, but not extremely well, and there was only a half wall separating the shower and the bathroom from the rest of the room. Therefore, there was very little privacy in the bathroom. The water was very strong smelling and I was very uncomfortable showering and washing my hands in it. I would definitely opt for something more expensive next time. This was not worth it.
