On this trip to Costa Rica we were surprised at a couple of hotels since the person at the reception desk really should be doing something else. Such was the case at the Hacienda Guachipelin. The receptionist rushed through a description of the place without really caring and then gave us incomplete or incorrect instructions to get to our room. In searching for them we ran into the manager or owner and he directed us correctly. In the process the receptionist showed up and of course was all charm and smiles. The CR people are really friendly and it should not be too difficult to find the right person for receptionist, except maybe for language abilities. We got over this unfortunate first impression and went on to have an interesting and pleasant stay.
