Wow. We chose this hotel over a place down the hill and were very, very glad we did. You walk in and immediately start to feel relaxed. The hotel is, as every review says, up a steep hill. Do yourself a favor, if your trip is during rainy season, or you don't like to walk, rent an ATV. The mud is treacherous. All the staff at the hotel (Alec, Pedro, owner Juan) are extremely helpful when making reservations for excursions, ordering delivery, organizing cabs, etc. The maid cleaned our room exceptionally well without fail. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Chill House and highly recommend this no matter if your stay is for surfing or just to enjoy the culture of a laid-back town.
For sleeping - you're in Costa Rica. You will sweat. The mosquito net helps keep the cooler air in to an extent, but be prepared for very, very warm nights.
There is no bathroom door - interpret this as you will.
Utilize the deck and pool!
Rent an ATV and do some exploring - one of the coolest parts of the trip was the drive home from zip lining in Montezuma, truly an adventure!
The hanging bed on your terrace will be one of your favorite parts of the room.
Contrary to what Frommer's may have told you, DON'T DRINK THE TAP WATER.
Be prepared to not want to leave!
