Eclectic for sure, but clean and a bargain for being on the beach! Good restaurant and bar! There is no TV in the rooms, but so what? Days are spent on the beach and evenings out on the town! BTW, this hotel is close to everything!

We began visiting this hotel about 15 years ago. At the time, San Carlos was a sleepy little town,. Now this resort has become noisy at night with children running around at all hours of the night slamming doors and yelling. The hotel needs a remodel as well. The location is wonderfully set right on the beach but the hotel...

Great Views, great value, great service. The rooms are just right for the budget traveler- increadibly serene views from a balcony that's almost as large as the room- huge beds and hot water. The beachside bar is the best in San Carlos. Umberto will treat your right any time of day and the guac will satisfy. Very laid back and...

The rooms a very simple, but kept clean. They all have balconies that look out over the grass and beach to the ocean. Each room has it's own air conditioner, which is wonderful. There are no T.V.'s or phones. The service was wonderful, very friendly and polite.
