Just before leaving for CR we got an email telling us to be on the lookout for posts done on establishments by people who had only done that 1 post since they might be done by "fake" tripadvisors.
After spending a night here we understand what they meant.
Our room was the smallest room we've ever been in, and that includes some inside cruise ship cabins. We had NO hot water in the shower. This is really a small apartotel and not a b&b. There are about 20 rooms. The dining area and courtyard are quite lovely. We found it because he drove slowly and I recognized the courtyard since there isn't even a sign outside. We saw the sign sitting on the ground next to the unplugged, empty water dispenser on the way to our room. The room did have a small fridge with snacks and drinks with a price list on the door.
Though it appeared to other guests, as well as us, that there was a continental breakfast buffet since all kinds of bowls were set on a large table, nothing was put out. A couple of other tables waited, as we did, thinking that they were just late setting up but eventually found out when someone else was served, that everything had to be ordered through the waiter/front desk person. He was wonderful and did his best to handle all the tables and answer the phone and assist patrons.
We had read posts about the restaurant and were looking forward to dinner the night we got there. Unfortunately, it was closed by 7 pm.
Nelson, the owner actually lives in Florida and was not there when we were.
