  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Cecilia was very accommodating and friendly. I had to leave very early the first morning before breakfast start time, so they brought me food the night before so I’d have something in my stomach before departing on my adventure. This is a small family owned hotel so there is no entertainment or lobby full-time person, but you can contact them by email or text if you need something and they will assist you. A complete and very nice breakfast is served on site but there is no kitchen so you need to go out for lunch or dinner and it is about a 10 min drive to downtown. If you have a car or pick-up shuttles to your activity, and you want a nice and quiet place to stay, away from the hectic of downtown, this is the place to stay. They have a very nice pool and jacuzzi and a great vegetation. Thank you very much Cecilia and staff!

  • 8.0.Very Good

    Everything was perfect. The only thing is why I did not say excellent is because according to Expedia when I booked I was under the impression that the breakfast was included, but we were charged $8 per person per day. Not a big deal but somehow it is frustrating that the advertising is with breakfast and then you are charged. Special thanks to Cecilia for all her service and kindness.

    The facility is private owned and properly managed. They have the most beautiful fluffy dog called Luna, who is so sweet. I did a solo trip to Costa Rica for mt 30th birthday. I wanted a nice spot andnsome quiet time and Mussaenda was the perfect location. It is veey secluded and jist breathtaking. The staff is so friendly too. Thank you Cecelia for calling the restaurant nearby and letting them know it was my birthday. It was really special. When I visit Costa Rica again, I'll definitely be staying at this location.

    Just minor details need to be taken care of. There were 2 coffee cups while the reservation was for 3 people. There were some visible hair on the lavatory sink, bed, and hairdryer. For the rest, the place is great and the staff is very kind.
