I stayed in 2005 and for New Year 2012/2013. It is a beautiful place! It isn't your upscale place, the rooms are simple but nice. Stone work and dark wood siding, the rooms are clean. Just bring a reading light if you want to read at night. The owner, Jeanette, returned in 2012 to manage her hotel again, and mentioned she was sad about the negative reviews the place got while it was under a different administration. As owner she takes pride in her family-friendly hotel.
There is a lot of wildlife to see, monkeys come to eat often. My daughter got to feed them. It is off the road and surrounded by vegetation. Between 7am and 9am, you can eat a traditional Tico breakfast. The folks at the front desk can set up any tours you may want and are not pushy. They also have on-site laundry service.
