Location is ok.
The parking lot is across the street with no security or even lights. Our room didn't have a closet, TV, fridge. They said they would clean between 10 and 2 but never did in the two nights we stayed. Never changed the towels until we asked. House rules ask guests to be quiet after midnight, but the bar played loud and ugly music until about 2 am both nights. Included breakfast was unpeeled fruit (pineapple with skin, mango with skin); when we asked for sugar for coffee the response was "it's on that table" instead of bringing it to our table.
Breakfast system was good. You can just pay for the extras which is awesome.
There was a freezer but the cable would not fit the outlet. So we had to ask for an extension. Also the AC controller was under the bed. Also the bathtub was not working. My point is, when you arrive, they should tell you all that rather than waiting for the people to ask.
The location is close to town and the good bakery. Most of the staff was very friendly.
The room I had (Mikado Room) was very noisy because it was next to the street. There was a balcony, but it was enclosed with netting which didn't allow much air through, so it was hot. I think the netting was there to keep out the bats which roost in the roof. If you are there for any length of time there is no place to hang clothes. There is a chest of drawers, but that is not useful if you want to dry things. If you are looking at the photos online and think you can have a nice swim from one end of the pool to the other under the little bridge, think again. The pool is three little basins. However, the garden is nice.
The air conditioning and the location
I paid 61,000 colones to listen to the boom boom club music until 3 am. My shuttle came at 6 am so I did not have an opportunity to sleep nor complain- staff leaves at 10. I paid extra for a bathtub on our last night in the jungle and it did not work either. I spent a week listening to the beautiful sounds of the jungle only to end my trip with the most expensive bad night of sleep I’ve ever had. So disappointing
The hotel was clean and quaint. The restaurant below the hotel, has amazing dinner.
Breakfast was unseasoned.
