We stayed at Luz de Luna, based on NY Magazine recommendation, for four nights. My two friends and I were given a lovely "cabina" with two rooms, kitchen, lovely mosaic tiled bathroom and porch, complete with hammock. Pretty standard for relatively budget CR hotels, but this place has the added benefit of being staffed by the lovely and hospitable Sylvia....

A very good place with a very reasonable price. They have a small, clean and very refreshing pool. Clean big rooms with mosquito nets and a fa.n. The owner (don't remember his name) was very helpful and laid back. After we moved in here I didn't want to go anywhere else even tough the beach is only 50 meters away....

We found this hotel by chance and it actually saved our holidays. Our experience was amazing, rooms are really clean and safe (digital locker), surrounded by trees and animals, 5min walk to paradise beach. The last morning, I woke up early and I had the chance to see monkeys having their breakfast up in the trees... priceless. A big thanks...

The location is awesome, since the bungalows are surrounded by trees (at night you can hear the howler monkeys) and the beach (Santa Teresa) is located across the street (approximately 100 meters away). We rented a bungalow for 2 persons, and we got more than what we expected since it was pretty comfortable. The kitchen has everything and more than...

We followed them back to a bed frame where the was an infestation of large biting ants in the bed, an entire ant population. This is Costa Rica,...

“Make sure to keep your suitcases and bags shut during your stay because we had some mice come visit us at night and while we were out (to be expected when you're basically in the middle of the rain forest). Also keep food in the fridge to minimize visits from these friendly critters.”
