The staff was really helpful and Ivonne was so lovely. The place is clean & beautiful. When there were some concert in town, we can hear a littlebit of noise but that's...

We spent 10 days in Costa Rica and I think this is the only place I'm even going to review. The room was great- large with 3 beds, AC, fridge and 2 ceiling fans and was by far the least amount of money we spent anywhere. It was comfortable and a steal. It even had its own balcony with two,...

We stayed there two nights. The room was comfortable, and clean. Everything was simple but correct. No wifi inside the room. The last day, however, a horrible smell invaded the court, but it didn't last long.

Stayed in a private room for 3 nights. Great location, far enough away from the main drag so that it is not too noisy but only a 2 minute walk away from bars and beach. Unfortunately we had a room by the side of the road so was noisy in the mornings until early evening with the sound of ATVs...

After spending a sleepless night at Hotel Moctezuma on the main drag, my mother and I searched elsewhere for a place that matched our budget, was in a good location, and was clean and quiet. We found all of that (and luckily the last vacancy!) at Aurora. The Dutch man running this joint was great - super helpful, accommodating, and...

The Pros: - The air conditioner was powerful (except for on the 3rd floor, which practically did not work at all) - Proximity to everyhing was great. - Electricity in the room - Fridge in the room The Cons: - Suicide Showers! The way that water for the shower is heated is through the use of electric shower heads ("Ducha...

I am a little confused by some negative reviews on this site, this is a budget hotel and as far as I'm concerned it's a fantastic little place and great value. Prime location steps from the beach and restaurants, close to the waterfall, clean rooms, friendly staff and some great areas for lounging!!! Couldn't ask for more, I thought this...

I wound up staying here because it was inexpensive for a private room and the hostel rooms here and at other places I was checking got filled. I really enjoyed my huge room with a refrigerator, private balcony with 3 chairs and 2 hammocks and huge bathroom off the balcony. You step out onto the balcony and to your left...

We booked this hotel because of the price, we got the junior suite. The room is large with two double beds, AC, fridge and balcony, so far it is good.
