Chris, the owner, was very mindful of our safety and always had someone at the hotel if he wasn't around (which he usually was). He was very friendly often making jokes with us and checking in to see how our stay was and if we needed anything. Anytime we needed advise on where to go or what to do his comments always proved correct and even saved us from a disaster or two. The hotel itself is set up from the street to avoid noise and dust and has beautiful flowers, an outdoor beach rinse-off shower, and is beautifully maintained. My room and bathroom were spacious and very clean. I slept very well there with both an overhead fan and room fan at my disposal. We had access to the kitchen (also very clean) if we needed it, but the hotel was so centrally located that we were able to walk a short ways to try the different restaurants each night. Probably the best part about the hotel is the close proximity to beach access as well as the surf shops.
I can't speak enough good words about the relaxing atmosphere the hotel provided. It is the perfect place to stay for people that want to spend the majority of the day venturing out to try new things but what a close and clean 'home base' to return to. This bargain hotel turned out to be a hidden gem. I would recommend it to any and everyone.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Cabinas Calocita offers rooms with private bath and hot water. There are 5 double rooms, one triple room and one single room. We are a small quiet hotel which stands for quality even for the budget traveller. Modern, clean and comfortable beds are waiting for you here at Cabinas Calocita.Part of Cabinas Calocita is a nice common area and a well equipped shared kitchen. Precisely the shared kitchen is typical in Costa Rica for small hotels and the people love to be able to cook their own meals or just leave drinks in the fridge. The location couldn’t be better. Quiet and calm (secluded) but still central. Just 150m walking distance to the ocean and surf break, but still (50m) off the main road what helps you sleep better. And the grocery store is also just 100m away and several restaurants are in close walking distance. ... more less
