We enjoyed our stay! Very quiet and relaxing! Great location as it's 4 min walk to the heart of town and grocery store is just across the street. The service was great and breakfast each morning was delicious! Only two downfalls; there are no screens on the window or air conditioning and wifi connection not great. Didn't mind not having...

Staff are lovely. Very friendly and take an interest. Reception will help all they can with directions and choosing places to see. The restaurant is ridiculously expensive though. The pool is a total let down. It is under cover including most of pool side and doesnt have any cleaning system. The leaves and insects just sit there in it. No...

Poco a Poco was a nice hotel in a good location. They were redoing their parking while during our stay so was a bit noisy. Pool had no charm and was dark. Wi-fi was not available in the room we had. Good breakfast.

What a great spot! The rooms are basic and comfortable. The grounds and the common areas are beautifully done and very inviting. The outdoor wooden deck is fabulous for evening sunsets. The hot tub is really hot and perfect to end your day. The swimming pool is slightly heated making it inviting. There is a cozy little area for reading...

Stayed at sister hotel and came to Poco to use the pool. However the condition was pretty disgusting so we didn't let our children venture in. A film of slime on the surface, a greenish 'algae coloured' tinge to the water. Shame as although the pool is very small, the pool area itself is nicely done

Dear Mr. B. Thank you for your feedback. I´m very sorry you made the trip from our sister property, it is one of the nicest added values for guests staying up there, especially when they are traveling with their children. Even though we do have times when the pool suffers from excess of guests entering the water with lotion, sunblock,...

We were a bit worried about having been booked into this hotel as part of our self drive tour of Costa Rica. We need not have worried however, this is a lovely little hotel. We arrived after a very bumpy and hot journey from La Fortuna but were warmly greeted by staff who allocated room 23. This is the furthest...

We stayed here for our 3 days in the cloud forest and it has ALL the amenities you'll need! The rooms are nice and have outstanding nature views!

Unique and eclectic hotel. Very centrally located--100 meters from good restaurants and <500 meters from downtown area. Comfortable beds and well appointed rooms. Nice pool and jacuzzi. Unfortunately, wifi limited to restaurant and public areas and ongoing construction detracted from the experience.
