The Good: The room was clean. When my TV didn't work, the owner gave me the TV out of his house. Which was very kind of him.
The Bad: the wifi didn't reach my room. It's not a huge deal, because you don't need the internet that often .. You're supposed to be on vacation but it comes in handy later, read on.
The staff was not very friendly. They weren't mean, but it was definitely the bare minimum. During the 2 days we were there, not one staff member initiated a hello. Really, we walked by them at 5 times a day, not one hello. I should have known from the start though.
We got there early, at 11:30am, check in was at 4. Fine, our fault. But after sitting there for 2.5 hours, I had to actually ask if the room was ready. Additionally, he never actually checked if early check-in was an option, he just told me I'd have to hang out by the pool until 4. Turns out at around 2, the room was ready. Thank God I asked. And I guess I thought if not friendly was at least considerate. FAIL. I asked for help booking two things while I was there, an ATV tour with FourTrax, and transport to San Jose. Instead they book a tour with AXR, the place next door, (Don't go by the way, go with FourTrax) and instead of offering me the option between a shared shuttle and private transport, they just told me transport to San Jose was $120, the price for what I hope was a private transfer.
