Michael's Hotel was a great place to stay in Puntarenas, across from the beach, minutes away from the ferry and various restaurants on the boardwalk. The accommodations were clean - including the pool and jacuzzi - and Michael was a great host to us.
Michael was accomdating and easy to work with. Pictures were accurate and the place had a very good location for staying in Puntarenas. It is just a few short blocks to the strip of restaurants and bars, and also very close to the ferry. The location is mostly quiet and is directly across from the beach, which was very nice.
Michael was very nice and accommodating. He helped us find his Hotel (it was very easy) and showed us around the room to ensure we had everything we needed.
Michael was a great host. He set us up with an adventure tour and was able to give us vouchers for a discount on this. The hotel is located right on the main drag and was walking distance to many wonderful restaurants and the boardwalk was across the road. A/C in our room and a pool to keep cool! Thanks again Michael!
Michael and Manuel made us feel very welcomed. They were there to help us, I feel like more than the average place. They were so helpful with tips and ideas for trips.
We felt very comfortable. We got there a bit early for check-in but they let us store our stuff and even let us use a room to change into our beach clothes. The location is close to the ferry stop (to the Peninsula Nicoya). The bus station to San Jose was probably a couple miles away, walkable with no big bags, or a fairly inexpensive taxi ride away. I think it is one big road called paseo de los turistas. I view it as one tip is the Ferry area and the other tip is the Bus station. The hotel is closer to the ferry.
Our room was #4. It was across the street from the beach. It is not enclosed with the other rooms in the pool/patio area (which is an amazing shaded and sunny area with rocking chairs and tables). We loved our room and that we had a view to the beach and access from the main street. The only down side for us working people (translator and 2 professors) was the wi-fi did not reach this room, but it just forced us to go to the pool/patio area and work with a beach view and maybe dive in the pool here and there :-) It was a semi-work trip so online time was a must. But who can complain about an open office with a beach view!
There was hot water. There was a kichenette and a small fridge. We had AC and a ceiling fan. They gave us nice towels, made sure toilet paper, shampoo and soap were stocked. I forgot the lady's name who helped keep the room tidy, but she was sweet as can be, too.
Great people and place. Few blocks from some yummy food, too. Hope to visit Costa Rica again and share this place with other friends and family.
Muchísimas gracias por su amabilidad, paciencia y hospitalidad.
Michael was a fantastic host. We had difficulties landing in San Jose due to a volcano eruption, but once we finally made it, he not only patiently awaited our much delayed arrival but also helped us figure out how to get to Puntarenas with no buses running. The room was comfortable and perfectly located if you're trying to catch the ferry. Definitely recommend!
Perfect place to stay in you're catching the ferry to Paquera! Close to many restaurants, and the ferry port. Was great to have A/C and a pool. Beautiful view of the ocean from our porch. I would stay here again if in the area!
Michaels stay was (email hidden)ivate parking...room overlooking the bay...close to the car ferry...great pool...very CLEAN and neat! People were very nice!!!
Michael provided a lot of info. The pool was a great asset.
We passed through Puntarenas on our way to the Nicoya Pennisula and needed a place for the night. Michael was very friendly and made the extra effort to make sure we enjoyed our stay at the Surfside Hotel. We would stay there again... only next time we will plan to stay longer.
