“Confortable, good location, great tours”
Reviewed 30 August 2010

Hotel Miss Junie has an accommodation block near the famous restaurant. Each room has large windows with mosquito nets and a ceiling fan so they're not too stuffy. We went in August which is rainy season but it might be hotter at other times of the year.

The rooms were very clean even though this would have taken a lot of effort (it's easy to walk sand into the rooms).

The walls are a bit thin so you can hear others but we didn't hear anyone at night.

There's a nice garden overlooking the lagoon with palm trees for shade (there's no shade on the beach so it can be rather hot).

Miss Junie's can organise turtle egg-laying tours for USD 20 each (which includes any national park tax). It's Miss Junie's daughter who does the tour and she was reasonably knowledgeable.

The Hotel can also organise canoe tours (with the enthusiastic octogenarian guide called Bill) for USD 20 or so.

Note that the exchange rate you get for using colones is terrible - use USD wherever possible.

If there was one disadvantage to Miss Junie's it's that the toilet system isn't particularly powerful so the toilets can smell a bit. It didn't affect us at all when we closed the bathroom door though.

If you're staying here, make sure you insist that the boat drops you off at Miss Junie's. Otherwise you'll get dropped off in the centre of the village and have a 500 metre walk with your luggage for no reason.
