The cuisine at the restaurant was top notch. We both had Mahi-Mahi prepared different ways and both were excellent. The service by Carlos and the ambience, which included the sun setting over the ocean was the best! They have an extensive wine list and the bartender is first class- and the music they play is appropriate. This place is a...

We booked this hotel with Book it at a last minute, the pictures of the hotel are very nice. It appears clean and fairly up to date. We arrived at the hotel after passing it twice as it is not clearly marked and the sign looked nothing like the pictures. Seemingly the Hotel recently changed names. We went to our...

Note to TripAdvisor: This hotel is now called "Paradise Hotel and Casino." There may be an "El Sabanero" down the coast, I believe, but the hotel described here is on a hill 5 blocks from Flamingo Beach. I tried to leave a review under the current business name, but there is no page for it. Now, the review: We really...

This hotel suffers from lack of detail. Allow me to explain: The good: price is good and the hotel does have a great ocean view. The So-so: most everything fits here. Food is not great, but not bad either, just food, kinda forgettable. There are tons of missing details that in and of themselves are not important but when you...

Don Rodrigo, thank you for taking the time to write such extensive and complete review, we appreciate your comment. We are working still in improve our hotel, I won´t lie, it has been an expensive and slow process.

This was the first (and only) place I found in Costa Rica that I felt like I got true value for my money. You are nickled and dimed everywhere in Costa Rica and that isn't even taking into consideration that everything is overpriced to begin with. We showed up looking for a place and they gave us a great room...

The first impression you get of this hotel is the up hill slope and the crowded car park where our rented car was dented. The reception people seem clueless at all times but eventually they deliver. I f you are in the Ocean view rooms you get to carry your baggage by yourself down the staircase which at the time...

Can't complain about a thing. Our server, Charlie was very accommodating and friendly. Upon his recommendation we started off with 4 different types of ceviche which were served with plantain chips. All of them were delicious. The 4 fish dishes that we shared were awesome as well. Rice with Octopus, Sea Bass, Lobster, and Mahi Mahi were great and more...
