Accueil chaleureux de la part d'Arnaud dans une ambiance coquette et exotique. Piscine agréable et très bon petit déjeuner. :-)
Arno and crew were great-lots of good stories and advice about the local area. I stayed for a week on a family vacation. The pool area is perfect and so lush and tropical. Breakfast was good as well! Room was clean with cute quirky decor. The place had a good vibe!
El lugar es perfecto si quiere tener un fin de semana relajado y muy tranquilo. Las habitaciones son en realidad pequeñas chozas o cabinas muy acogedoras, con su baño privado, A/C y TV por cable. Incluso tienen más equipo de hogar como microondas, refrigeradora, etc. pero no lo ocupamos. Muy importante, todo estaba muy limpio y ordenado. La piscina y demás instalaciones están rodeadas de mucha vegetación lo que brinda una sensación de frescura y relajación. Tiene Wifi gratis en todo el área. El desayuno que se sirvió fue abundante: frutas frescas, tostadas, cereales, panes y jugos naturales y café. Arno, el dueño y anfitrión, siempre se preocupó por los huéspedes. Sólo lamento que mi inglés no fuera tan bueno para conversar más con Arno. El hotel está muy cerca de dos hermosas playas: Carrillo a 200 mts. y Sámara a 7 kms. El lugar cuenta con varias mascotas: perros, gatos y una hermosa guacamaya. A mi novia y a mí nos encantan los animales por lo que esto ni fue un problema. En todo momento nuestra estadía fue placentera y muy agradable. Especialmente recomendado para parejas que quieran pasar momentos de descanso. Espero volver pronto.
Had a fantastic 3 night stay with Arno. The apartment we rented had was great, had a kitchen, comfortable beds and a lovely patio upstairs. There was even hot water in the shower. The whole property has a very friendly welcoming vibe, Arno and his staff make sure you have everything you need. The pool is fantastic and this little hidden gem of a house is a short walk to Playa Carillo. Arno will even cook for you if you give him notice. We had a great time and will stay with him again
I would love to make this review public. Here is my feedback on La Tropicale.
Subject: Be aware, Arno Demoy does not honor the cancellation policy and does not refund your money
I'm writing this review to warn everyone... on 12/23/13 at 8:55 AM I canceled the reservations I had for 12/24 and 12/25. As per his cancellation policy I should get a refund, I"m copying the policy at the bottom of the email. Instead a refund I got a rude message from Arno. I did send him a nice message reminding him of the cancellation policy but I never heard from him. Now I'm working with AMEX to stop the payment and writing reviews on AirBnB . I hope that AirBnB removes him from the listing.
Cancellation policy: "For a full refund, cancellation must be made a full 24 hours prior to listing's local check in time (or 3:00 PM if not specified) on the day of check in."
La Tropicale is a great little bed and breakfast -- if you want to be in Samara, however, it's not that close. Probably a 15 minute drive. But, the beach at Puerto Carrillo is really nice too (only there can be crocodiles!). Arno's place is a short walk from this beach.
The place itself is simple and looks home built, but it was clean and had everything we needed. Our cabina even had a small outdoor kitchen, which was perfect. The pool is outstanding, and Arno let us use his grill to cook some fish we bought from the local supermarket. We watched movies outside on his projector over the bar -- it was fantastic!
I wish we would have stayed here for an extra night for sure! The beaches in this area aren't rocky like others on the Nicoya Peninsula.
