The hotel is the refurbished Clarion Hotel. We paid $50 a night and that has to be the best deal in Costa Rica.
For a third world country, this hotel is very nice - set your expectations appropriately and you will be pleasantly surprised.
What really stood out was the front desk staff, in particular, Marianna. She was friendly, attentive to our needs, and she encompassed everything a guest of hotel desires in the front desk staff.
i would stay at the Mona Lisa again if they had the same high quality trained staff.
