Loved staying here. Had my best sleeps in Costa Rica yet. Super comfy beds, new mattresses, nice spacious rooms, amazing A/C, and great showers.
Jessie and his girlfriend were lovely hosts, super friendly, and provided us with information for basically whatever we needed. It would be nice if they posted a bit more info about places to go in town (ie, restaurants, bars, places to hike, things to see, etc.)-- I always feel a bit guilty about constantly pestering staff/management, especially when they actually live at the same location.
The only thing that detracts a bit from the place is the lack of much of a social atmosphere-- it's not necessarily a knock against the hotel, it's just not really that kind of place. The other thing that would be nice is a few hammocks around that aren't for the little, older cabinas.
But all in all, a wonderful place to stay.
