I'm shocked at some of the reviews here. First, read before you buy. Second, don't expect high end luxury at $55 per night. Yes, there is no wifi or phones in the rooms. Yes, it's rustic. It was very cold at night with no heat/ac and very windy which with metal roofs is very loud at night. But it's a...

-No internet in room -Not clean, part of the window was missing so there were bugs (cockroaches) everywhere. There were about 20 in the bathtub... therefore, we obviously did not use the bath! We instead took a very rapid cold shower. -80$ US a night is too expensive for the place -Furthermore, when we woke up in the morning at...

This was our first stop on a 2 week trip. It was my husband and my first time to Costa Rica and this was by far our favorite place we stayed. The hotel was a little difficult for us to find, the GPS we originally rented with our rental car was unable to locate it. We ended up having to...

Doña Jennifer thank you very much for your comment. It was a pleasure for us to serve you and will even see them again in our hotel. With respect to liquor you take that call "spirit of the mountain" and again whenever we can send him home. Jajajajajajajajajaj. Maybe you come by parcel. Saludes and Blessings.

We booked this through a vacation package deal for seven nights. It was very windy and cold and the metal roof rattling kept us up most of the night. There was also no hot water and so we never bathed. We left after three nights although we had paid for seven.

We recently visited Alto Palomo for several days.The hotel is in the mountains and was surprisingly cold, if visiting be sure to bring some warm clothing. The views were incredible and the area very tranquil. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel is somewhat remote and requires quite a drive to get there. Our GPS lost connection many...

The rooms have great view. Accommodation is nice and comfortable. Could use cable TV. There is a trail inside the property, very nice for a morning walk. Landscapes in general are great, and road to the hotel is paved. Food and attention at the restaurant was remarkable. Despite the restaurant is 300 meters away from the rooms, you just need...

This is a family and small hotel, in a very peaceful place, is perfect for couples and a good option to stay after or before visit the "Bajos del Toro" waterfall or just spend the night and see the amazing view to the central valley. The personal is always available to provide a good service, and make the best they...
