This was my random stop on our trip. Near the coast, small town, Carara Nat'l Park nearby, and the promise of lots of great birds.
This was all of that and more---the hotel room was huge, and the grounds around the cabin were beautiful. The hotel maintains many bird feeders so that hummingbirds and other birds will stick around. Frogs and iguanas are also plentiful around here. The showers are outdoors (and private), so you can enjoy some fresh air while getting ready in the morning.
Meals were prompt and tasty, with lots of local fruit, meat, and gallo pinto. The dining are was outdoors, very clean, and the staff very helpful.
This is a great place to stay with an excellent location. It's not fancy in any way, but if simple & effective is good for you, then you'll love this place as there is little reason to ever be indoors with so much nature to see so close by.
