Here are some additional reviews from February/March 2016

'Your property is one the cleanest and well maintained places that we have stayed in during our travels in Central America. Julie from U.S.A.

'My father wanted to stay in a hotel, but I wanted to meet other young travelers. It worked out perfectly that we could get a private room, and I could hang out with the other travelers.' Kevin from U.S.A.

'We had fun but we also appreciated that we could get a good night sleep for our early hike the next morning.' Jeroen and Erik from Holland

Sometimes the reservation system shows us as full (for same day and next-day reservations), when in fact, we have plenty of space available. If the system won't allow you to reserve contact us directly at the property to confirm availability.

When you reserve through this service, your room will be held until 6:00pm on the arrival date, unless you contact us directly at the property to give us more detailed credit card information.

Latest Review

" Normally i say 'you pay what you get' but not here. Compared to other places i stayed at this is overpriced and i have stayed i a good few places in central america now and Panama.Pillow and mattress cover was far from clean. The place needs a new layer of paint. The lady who met us at arrival was a bit odd and short, maybe she had a bad day. Area felt safe to walk around in but not much atmosphere there either. WIFI was good though! "
