Excellent small hotel with great staff and descent rooms. Located close to the beach. Need a vehicle, but that's true for much of CR. Definitely recommend! Restaurant was good as well. Prices were pretty typical of the area.

Definitely great for paddle boarding. The bigger waves are in a section towards the north end of the beach.
