A welcoming place to stay with very friendly staff. A nice breakfast is included each morning, and there are nice outdoor common spaces with picnic tables and tables and chairs in the pool area. Short walk to nearby beaches and restaurants.
My friend and I stayed here for one week on arriving to Costa Rica, this place is great! The rooms are clean and comfortable with air con, powerful hot water shower and breakfast is made freshly every morning and served outside. The location was good for us as a base as we were keen to explore. We walked down to Playa Brasilito which was around 10 mins. The beautiful white sands of Playa Conchal are a good 30 min walk which didn't bother us but may be something to bear in mind if you want to be right on the beach. There are shops and restaurants and a very interesting local bar in Brasilito which is a quiet town. Tamarindo is around a 20 min drive away if you're looking for a busier town and nightlife. There isn't loads going on in Brasilito but we enjoyed horse riding on the beach to watch the sunset, a boat trip and snorkelling in Conchal, Playa Flamingo is pretty but far too touristy for us and this hotel made a good base. We were glad to have our little sanctuary to come home to. The pool area is lovely, nice and clean with loungers and hammocks. What really makes this place is the staff. My friend and I travelled around Costa Rica and the staff here were by far the nicest people of anywhere we stayed! Jodie and her gorgeous team gave us advice, chatted to us, even made sure they had the details of our taxi driver when we left, and that we checked in with them at our next destination. We both just adored everyone here and it has a really safe, family feel. Thank you guys! You're the best!…
For the price, you can't go wrong. The owner was so nice and the staff was very helpful. We stayed two weeks and traveled to local beaches with our rental car. Traffic from the nearby road in the early morning.
Pros: - cheap. We paid $160 CAD for 2 nights -only a 10 min walk to store and restaurant -friendly staff -clean rooms -good AC and shower -good breakfast Cons: -pool is really tiny and every room faces the pool so zero privacy. (This is shown in pictures so shouldn’t be a surprise but pool is smaller in person) -wifi was the worst we had out of all hotels. Had to stand outside just to connect for a second. Not a huge deal for us but if you need to work on wifi you won’t be able to here. -description says they have hair dryers, I asked for one and was told they did not supply hair dryers. As they mention in the description, a car is recommended. Definitely agree with that. We did not have a car and while brasilito town is only a 10 minute walk, there is not much to do in the area. The brasilito beach is not the best and restaurants and bars are slim. Ubers we’re fairly easy to get but you definitely need to drive to go to flamingo or conchal. They also mention that noise free rooms can’t be guaranteed, that is also true as the hotel faces a busy highway. It gets quiet relatively early at night but it gets loud really early in the morning. If you’re a light sleeper be prepared to be awake at 6 am. Overall a fine hotel for the price you’re paying. Don’t expect luxury for cheap prices!…
This is was an amazing stay for 1 week. The hotel is nice, with all stuff you need, the lady who owns the place is very nice and helpful as well as the whole crew! Breakfast was a really nice and unexpected addition. Would definitely come again!
Clean,comfortable, good service, good staff, helped with local info, great location, quiet, breakfast included, relaxing atmosphere looking forward to returning again , Jose the owner was great making arrangements for what even I needed
So terrible experience! Is disguting and their publicity is a lie. Customer service provided coming from the owner is not what you expect, she is rude and treated our family as garbage, being us the clients! Pool is disgusting! We paid around $100 for a cabin, when we arrived and realized about the situation we asked for our money back and the owner told us she was going to return it. Today we called since havent received the reimbursement and she said wasnt to return anything. This is completely unacceptable.
This hotel is in an excellent location for a great price. It was clean and comfortable, and Jodi was very helpful. From Brasilito town you walk across Brasilito beach and then over to Conchal beach. Lots of restaurants (sodas) nearby and a supermarket next door. The bus station is also nearby for bus transfers to San Jose.
This hotel is located in the main road that access Brasilito, Flamingo and Potrero, 300 meters before the bridge. It offers basic clean accommodations with good parking and reasonable price. It is at waking distance of beautiful Conchal Beach.
We dicided to take a road trip in April 2018 to Playa Conchal. We landed upon Cabinas Diversion Tropical. The room was bright, clean and inviting. The atmosphere was peaceful, the pool was refreshing. We were even surprised by the bakery truck who delivered fresh goods for breakfast, we enjoyed eating at our dining table on the balcony. Can't wait to go back!
