My daughter and I stayed here for a few nights and had an awesome time. Brian is really social and rallied a big group of us to go out for pizza in town. Afterwards we all went to the grocery store and bought beer and snacks as watched a movie shown over the pool outside in the warm beautiful air. Some of us swam, some snoozed on the chaise and some just hung out.
Next day we booked a surfing lesson through Brian and it was soooo much fun and Dave was patient and kind and funny and an excellent instructor. I rode about 95% of my waves and it was my first time (and I am over 50!) That night most of the guests bought fish and carne and veggies and we had a big BBQ and beer and another movie. Oh yeah, don't forget the beautiful sunset from the roof deck! Stunning!
Third day we went with some of our new friends from the hostel and did a day trip to Manuel Antonio. It was fun to add some new people to our touring and we had a great day. Short drive as well. We arrived back at hostel in time for the tail end of Ground Hog day over the pool.
The place is brand new and most if not all of the rooms have a view of the ocean and you can hear waves crashing with the windows open! It is so new that they installed the counter tops in the common kitchen area while we were there.
I hope to go back there soon!
