Comments  (English):
From the moment we arrived we noticed there was little privacy in our place. A large kitchen window provided a direct view from reception to our bathroom/shower (they eventually put curtains up after we asked that kind of helped). The main bedroom window is also pretty open and a few times we woke up to people right outside that could easily see into our bedroom and had to scramble to cover up. Also, although it seemed like he was just hard at work, the manager was in our room more times then any other place we had stayed at. Fixing things, checking up on us, etc. I know they were just getting set up for high season but it just didn't feel like we had much privacy... Then we had a "break in." 2 computers, iPad, personal safe that was hidden, and a camera stolen while we were at a dinner reservation for a few hours, and it seemed like whoever did it knew exactly what we owned and where it was hidden. It was made to look like a break-in, but even the police agreed that the only way in was with a key and the rest was staged. Our passports somehow turned up a day later, but everything else was lost. The manager didn't charge us for the stay, but we would have paid 10x the amount for a secure place and to not lose all of our stuff. Something felt very "off" with the whole situation and break in. Definitely not the typical robbery you hear about in Costa Rica... Be cautious and trust your own instincts with the vibe.
