This hotel is located in San Rafael Norte, off the new Interamericana highway. The location is good for access to the city of San Isidro, but the truck noise from the highway is a pain. The view of San Isidro from our balcony was fabulous - day and night! The little private garden area was pleasant, the room appeared clean and well kept and we felt safe and secure. The manager, Billy, speaks excellent English. The downsides - the drive way down the hill to park (and back up the hill) is brutal. The beds and pillows were among the very worse we encountered on our entire trip to Costa Rica (and that is saying a lot!). They have a 'suicide' shower set up - so if you want warm water, the pressure has to be low - good pressure will give you cold water. The night we were there, the bathroom was swarmed with termites - not harmful but a little freaky. The ceiling fan was not adequate to keep us cool and there was no AC. The fridge barely kept drinks cool, much less cold, and the TV had only Spanish speaking stations. There was no breakfast (indeed no restaurant) but Billy did make coffee - however, no coffee maker in the room. We found the downsides far outweighed the good points (the view) - which is a shame, as the location and the view were great!
