This is an all inclusive small hotel about half a mile from the ocean. Its facilities are well maintained but that is about it. Their restaurant is average and their service is just plain bad. Especially during check in and check out. There are better options. Keep looking.

We stay here every other year, in a villa at the back of the property, most recently in Feb 15. Although the bathrooms are basic, the water pressure is good, and we found the level of cleanliness acceptable. It really isn't fair to criticize them for bugs in the room- unless they vacuum sealed every accommodation it is impossible to...

Went to hotel Amapola with my parents during Christmas. Check in-time was said to 14 but when we arrived the towels were missing in our room and we had to wait for a while, which we accepted without any problems and went to the pool. After a couple of hours we agreed to take the room without towels and that...

Dear Mr. Sanlon, thank you very much for spend time to write about the Hotel Amapola. We know that in the high season sometime not all is done well, we ask apology for the inconveniences. The wi-fi sistem is working well in the recepcion area and less well inside the rooms. We are changing all the sistem, because the property...

Stayed here for one night and it was a little bit disappointing for the price. The rooms were not bad, but the bathrooms show incredible lack of maintainance, the shower doors didnt close properly and inside the shower it wasn´t very clean. On the other side, bed and air conditioning were comfortable. The pool and the gardens are nice. The...

Althouth our main concern was to have a really good and safe pool for our young girls 5 & 2, we also made the decision to stay here based on price and location. This hotel is just a little bit outside the main street in Jaco, thus making tranquility a certainty. We found the hotel very quiet at nights, and...

Hotel is clean and have what you need. Is not at the beach but has a good pool, personal friendly and good safe parking. Rooms a little old but well maintain. The location is good, excellent to pass by on a fair price

We booked this hotel through a deal site promising 3.5 stars - COMPLETELY misleading. The hotel grounds are decent, but our room was terrible: to start, the room was tiny and outdated, the bathroom moldy, the shower doors barely worked and the sink was detached from the wall balancing precariously on its pedestal. The bed was uncomfortable, the AC quit...

We stayed at the hotel for 3 days and 2 nights. It is a really nice hotel, rooms are clean and nice, and the pool is great. My room was right next to it so my son really enjoyed it. It has a playground, a gym and it is pet friendly (perfect!!). It does not have direct access to the...

We went to this hotel at the end of our Nicaragua/Costa Rica trip in May 2013. That was to spend good time in a good place. The room was really nice, just besides the pools and the jacuzzi (not the best jacuzzi of the world). The hotel is just after a curve on the main road (few minutes on foot)...

We ended up at this hotel when our first choice had an issue and we had to move. We arrived mid afternoon after a long bus trip from the Sarapiqui and were very tired. Our first room had a lot of mildew and the toilet did not work. The second room is much better but the shower head needs to...
