The main receptionist was very rude to me and mostly ignored me if it wasn't for the fake smug smile.
The breakfast was quite bad so I took my own food for most of my stay here.
The location is just one dark alley walk away from a murky beach that is very difficult to swim in due

Thank you Beumer Family, your review makes us work better in order to please our guests. Quick fact, back in 2012, September 5th, a powerful magnitude 7.6 shook Costa Rica, the epicenter Samara Beach, after this tremendous earthquake most of the coral was broken and the ocean is still throwing outside while rebuilding again. Isn't beautiful how nature moves on after a huge break down? Once again thank you for your comments, rgds

There is gonna be a great story at the end of this review!

Our first night at the hotel was average at best. Between doors not being able to lock and curtains that aren't able to provide privacy there is not much to find here.

We had to fix several issues on our own (crooked

we will be diving form Puerto jimenez, Puntarenas. Is this a reasonable drive. The map says it is 6 hrs. anything we should know?
En respuesta a mi comentario ustedes dicen no encontrar evidencia de nuestra estadía en su hotel sin embargo les puedo garantizar que estuvimos del 4 al 6 de mayo del presente año y tengo varias fotos que puedo mostrarles posiblemente la razón de la falta de evidencia es que pagué en efectivo para acceder a una promoción o precio de oferta que tenían ustedes en ese momento.
Que pena, en serio no encontramos nada, pregunté a las camareras y no me dieron razón, de hecho me pareció extraño porque las sábanas al extenderlas se vería el control y para eso precisamente está la canasta en la mesa de noche, pero de mi parte y de todo el equipo le pedimos disculpas a lo que sucedió, pero no por lo que sucedió sino por hacerle pasar a Ud un mal rato, no es nuestra intención que un huésped salga insatisfecho, si quisiera volver para refrescar lo que piensa de nosotros se lo agradecería y yo misma me aseguraré que no se cometa ningún error, estamos a sus órdenes Muchas gracias, slds
