    Good 6,0
    Average hotel
    The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The hotel itself was clean but a little outdated. The room was clean but maybe a little smaller than average. Not much space in the bathroom or shower. The breakfast buffet was very basic and the scrambled eggs were a little runny for my taste. Overall this is an average to good hotel and I would recommend but I would have liked a few improvements.

    Exceptional 10,0
    Everything was amazing and a lovely staff ❤️ We will definitely will go back there, but the water of the pool was very cold and was not great to be there I will totally recommend it to warm up the water at least from 6 pm until they close it as it’s open to the weather

    Dont let the pool photos fool you... go elsewhere
    The pool photos look great but dont let that fool you. I'm not really happy with this hotel. Its costa rica and the price is cheap so my expectations were not high. But the front desk is rude and the check in is really bad. you will not get early or at 2pm trust me... they will make you wait...seems from all of the comments the construction is going on forever... The hammering all day long was not peaceful if you want to sit but the pool.. the location in not good - nothing to walk to... they really dont seem to care
