Perfect view on bay

Would recommend Tue, Apr 29, 2014
Hotel rooms are a little outdated but we love the location. Since 1985 no serious update has been done on the place, our mattress was replaced after we made a complaint that you can not sleep on those old rags any more. AC is loud but terrace is gorgeous on middle house units 118-130. Spacious room no luxury , no internet available there only in bar or restaurant level about 100 stairs up. Still no Flat screen TV. Staff is helpful and competent. Forget booking over their own service, to expensive and rude to customers.

Dining

2 Km to Hotel La Leyenda or Hotel MonteLaguna. Good Fish, Tuna blackened, Tuna asian stile. Walking possible to El Colibri but only for dinner time.

Interesting old school Costa Rica

Would recommend Thu, Mar 13, 2014
This place is right in the heart of Carrillo above the beach. The view is amazing. They two nice bars with a view and a decent pool. Back in the 90's when Costa Rica took off as a beach destination this pace would have been one of the pioneers, but it's very dated and obvious the owners are maintaining it based on a low cost structure. Everything is very old and they make you wear a wrist band like you are at a club Mead. The staff is friendly but very young across the board, another sign they are running things for cost management. I recommend it if you get a good price on a room.

Attractions

The local beach is not populated and beautiful. Dolphin tours and snoring right outside the door.

Not on green Season

Would not recommend Sun, Jan 27, 2013
I'm a very regular guess on that Hotel due to my work, since last year, the experience on low season is very nice, but when green season come is to crowd and the services is poor. Location is good, but rooms need a little refresh, looks old and not well maintained.

Family vacation

Would recommend Sun, Apr 8, 2012
The bayfront rooms are spacious and clean. End rooms have the best views. Some of it is dated but the view off the balcony of the bay below makes up for any small shortfall. The location of the room about halfway down a very large hill does require some physical activity. This is not a good choice if you have physical limitations. We felt that each day we got a very good work out without going to the gym. We found the staff at the bar and restuarant very friendly. The restaurant also was very good. We did not rent a car and we were a little worried about limited dining choices, However, the town had many choices and it is short walk down the road to reach them. We wish we could go every year and cannot wait to go back.

Dining

Pizza place, steakhouse and local soda in town were all very good.
