Puerto Limon is not nice, nothing for tourists so we took a cab to Playa Westfalia just 15 minutes away. We were so pleased we did. Warm, friendly staff, lovely pool, a clean, spacious room and best of all, really fine food in the restaurant. We also loved the free wifi! Highly recommend this quiet, charming spot.

We stayed at this hotel only because it was very close (3km) from the Limón airport and we had a very early flight.... which we almost did not make it to because the "concierge" never called us the taxi he promised. When we got there, check-in was swift and seamless. However, when we walked to our room, we found it...

The hotel is quite basic, our room was large but water pressure was terrible and hot water not always available. Hotel is right on the beach - not a nice yellow sandy one but great for long walks. Pool was good. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. The property is secure, gates are locked at night and there is...

The Carribbean side isn't built up as the Pacific, but I still enjoyed my stay here. Helpful friendly staff. Adorable well kept dogs (30) on property! They'll go with you for a walk to the beach. The rooms are HUGE with good AC, decent wifi and a fridge. If they have a hot plate and/or a microwave you could really...

We expended almost a week in this hotel. My family and I pass new years in the hotel. The friendly staff and management is one of the things that made everything so enjoyable. Personally it is a pretty nice place to stay even if it is only for a night or a week.

The place could be OK. Except for the mouse in the restaurant brought in by their cat. Or the excessive humidity in the room with the associated smell. Or an angry manager who knows nothing about customer service.

Stopped here before going down to Puerto Viejo. Great beachfront place with swimming pool, bar and restaurant. Diana, the manager and Josue in the restaurant were awesome. Gave us names of some places to hit when we went south. Definitely worth the money!

The hotel is clearly right on the beach. The price is amazingly low. It has a very nice and unique atmosphere. The customer service is unmatched. I stayed here with a group for 5 days, the entire staff quickly knew our names, and were most helpful. Breakfast in the mornings was amazing. while swimming the day before I lost my...
