We booked the #1 rancho room and enjoyed it. Having 3 people it slept us fine, with 3 beds in 2 rooms. This isn't a luxurious resort, but you are kind of in the middle of nowhere. In fact this town has only 1 paved road. We stayed here to visit Corcovado, and it worked OK. There's about a 1 hour road trip to the drop point, then another 45 minute walk to the park entrance. If doing it again we'd stay at Drake Bay and take the boat to the park entrance, saving a lot of time and energy. Still, this was a great adventure and Puerto Jimenez has some decent restaurants.
The room itself was fairly dirty - bugs, sand, etc. Again, you're in the wild, so it was tolerable. The room had good a/c and the wifi worked well when in range, which was limited. The best part of this stay by far was the ocean view balcony, and it was definitely the best room in the place. If going back we'd definitely take the same room.
The front desk staff spoke english very well and there was a water cooler to refill water bottles. We didn't drink the tap water but didn't ask if it was safe (which it probably is) since they had the water cooler. The pool here is nice but small. Overall, I probably wouldn't stay here again, but my sense of adventure and trying new places is a part of that. And, I still would recommend this hotel to friends.
