We just got back from this hotel three days ago and boy were we sad to leave!!! The hotel is not the ritz and yes, there is not a T.V. (I prefer no T.V. on vacation...family bonding) but it is clean and right on the beach. We were so close to the beach that we just went back and forth to the room to refreshen our drinks. For people who like warm pools...The pool was so nice and warm and the kids loved it. I never swim unless the pool is warm and I swam the whole time. We didn't spend much time in the room because we were always out exploring but when we were there we were so glad that we decided to choose this hotel. I was worried because of some of the reviews but we were not disappointed and would stay there again for sure. We did have the power go out a few times...but that was just part of the experience of the lovely country of Costa Rica...and they were quite quick to fix the problem. The cleaning staff were so amazing the room was spic'n'span every day when we returned and what a task that must be for them with the proximity to the beach and all the sand that must be dragged in. One final thought, the last night i accidentally threw out the lid to my sunblock and had to go through the garbage the next morning to retrieve it. My husband had thrown out some left over food the night before...and to my surprise not one bug, big or small, was in the garbage! I found that amazing considering we were right in the jungle. Pura Vida will return for sure...thank you for the lovely stay!
P.S. you must try the little beach front restaurant in front of the hotel...it looks scarry but it was so delicious and cheap...try the red snapper!
