We were not with a bus tour or a cruise ship. We were individual travelers who needed and reserved three rooms. At check-in, they told us they upgraded us to "a room with a view." What a view it was! Out of our balcony, we saw fjords for three days.
The receptionist were friendly; although they had little knowledge about hiking options.
Our waiter from Scotland gave us valuable tips to go to another hotel to talk to the owners about hiking trips out of Osa. Boy, that was a terrific hike. We thanked the waiter for his tip.
Dinner buffet was about US$80 per person. The food choices were many yet awful. So, stay away.
There was a lot of space for storing your personal belongings once you unpack. A good feature for travelers. However, HOTEL MANAGER, get some new lamp shades for the bedside reading lamps. They are too outdated...yellowed with water stains and wrinkled!
