The whole location of the hotel is amazing. Sitting in the hammock and listening to the birds chirping was marvelous. The rooms are spacious and clean. Los Pinos is close to the town it is far enough away to feel like its isolated and quiet. The place wasn't busy when we arrived and the staff were so helpful with planing our stay. The bakery close to the hotel is perfect for breakfast. The property has its own hiking trail and green house. The whole place is amazing. Highly recommended.
We stayed here early December, 2 adults and 2 young children. It was our first stop in Costa Rica after arriving in San Jose from Scotland for a months tour. We stated for 4 nights and weren't disappointed. Although it is close to the town it is far enough away to feel like its isolated and quiet. The place wasnt busy when we arrived and the staff were so helpful. It was my wifes birthday and they supplied some gifts of chocolate and coffee which was very nice. The staff also arranged for my two children to plant trees nearby for no extra charge which was very decent. The staff assisted with a few excursions and pointed us to the best tours which was nice. The accommodation was good. Very secure and clean and big enough for our family, in fact we had a spare bedroom for the luggage. It got very windy/rainy on a couple of nights which kept us awake but that is to be expected in the rain forest. We cannot fault the place at all and would definitely recommend anyone to come here for a visit.…
I have a lot of cons but I will go with the pro first. This was a very cute and quaint cabin with the feel of like camping. The cons: the man at the front office was not friendly and seemed like he was bothered that we were asking questions. Hair dryer blew up and melted, which I put in the sink to cool off. I reported to the office and he seemed to care less and didn’t say a word to me just handed me a new hair dryer. They never came and retrieved the old one. Coffee maker never worked. Cleaning was never done and we were there for 3 nights. The worst part was, you are not able to flush toilet paper down the pipes due to old plumbing. So needless to say it was kind of disgusting that they never picked up our garbage during the whole time we stayed there.
We've stayed at Los Pinos every March for so many years that we've lost count. The cabins are private and surrounded by nature. They're well-appointed, with full kitchens. The property boasts its own trails, look-out over the Gulf of Nicoya, and a hydroponic garden where you can get produce for your kitchen. The family there will welcome you and help you plan all your activities. We return every year for good reason!
This place was really nice. We enjoyed being in a cabin in the woods and being close to everything. Kitchen was a bit dated but had everything we needed. The grounds were gorgeous and the hike up their trails led to a beautiful vista!! Just a block down the road was a great sunset spot with benches. Staff was super friendly and helpful. My only small complaint was the inconsistent water temperature in the shower. Overall, this place was a GREAT value!
