This eco hotel is in a wonderful location and is thoroughly recommended in spite of visiting during atrocious weather! The rooms are clean & comfortable with balconies to sit on & watch the hummingbirds and other varieties. Food was good & plentiful.

Thank you for your kind comments. We sincerely regret that you happened to be at Esquinas during the rainy weather connected with Hurricane Otto. We have never experienced so much rain in the month of November, but we are glad you enjoyed your stay nevertheless.

I loved the caiman pond and the frogs of the garden at night. The garden is really kept and the foot and the juices were fantastic. Furthermore, the staff of the hotel were really sympathetic and attentive with our needs.

This was my second visit in four years. The new pool is pleasant. Meals were ok, especially the cold soups. Yogurt at breakfast most appreciated. Cabins have no soundproofing so you hear people talking many cabins away. Pleasant staff. Good visit, thanks!

Thank you, Michelle, for your detailed and positive report. We are working to improve the quality of the rooms and bathrooms, but we have decided against air-conditioning for several reasons: the temperature doesn't really require it and most guests are happy with the ceiling fan, we don't want to put in glass window panes (then you wouldn't hear the magical...
