Disappointed!

  • 2 of 5

We were promised Wifi. The 1st and 2nd day was very poor reception. The following 5 days we had no reception at all. Our telephone was dependent on wifi. We had 2 very sick elderly relatives, one was hospitalized and one on Dialisys. It was necessary to monitor their medical treatment daily. We also own a very hands on business that requires constant communication. The purpose of our visit to CR was to purchase realestate there. We were left to find wifi at other locations to conduct our business, running in and out made it impossible to relax. We pleaded with Robin to repair the wifi reception, the only response he would tender was it must have been knocked out by a storm. He made no attempt to remedy the situation. We have been traveling to CR for 5 years now and stayed in much more remote locations and never had a problem with wifi.

On a side note and way overshadowed by the lack of wifi the ants were relentless, even finding there way into our bed while we were sleeping. There was no comfortable furniture in the room only one wooden chair so we brought the the plastic outdoor chairs inside. It was either that or get into bed to be comfortable. The bathroom was poorly cleaned. When we checked in he claimed his housekeeper was a no show and he was cleaning the unit himself. He did a very poor job leaving long hair everywhere including the shower drain and floor.

We also requested a microwave in advance and robin told us he would have one in the room, no microwave.

Owner's Response: Don and his Boyfriend are just not suitable for a Jungle vacation.Their second day here they had a flat tire in their rental car and I assisted them even loaning them my Jack as there car had none and helped them jack the car up. Nothing I could do would satisfy these men. I just cant stop wondering why these men were shopping for Real Estate in Costa Rica while their aunts were extremely ill??? I Dont offer an Office setting with high speed internet Serivce it is A Great Vacation location in the jungles of Costa Rica. These men did not want my maid to service there unit as they wanted their privacy and I granted there request. I offer this service every three days for free. As In this case.a lightening storm hit the cell tower and knocked out the transmitter. I required an number of days to repair the service. We all know Costa Rica is a 3rd world country and is not up to par with service levels people expected in the United States. Internet service is dependent upon the providers ability to provide it. Please read the other reviews and if you rent to these Guys Beware! Sae La Vie

Everything was perfect. If Costa Rica is in your travel plan and you like nature, it is hard to imagine a better place than Robin's. If you don't know Spanish, Robin will help too. Thank you, Robin!

The perfect spot

  • 5 of 5

We spent our honeymoon in Ojochal. We couldn't have been more pleased. The accommodations were ideal for us. The amenities and our host were ideal. Robin was attentive to our needs and helped make our trip unforgettable with his recommendations and assistance. Honestly, our trip wouldn't have been the same without his help and advice.

Ojochal is a quaint little town. There are a number of fine dining restaurants and many close beaches.

The country and people of Costa Rica are fantastic. In Ojochal, my weak Spanish worked perfectly well with the local's respectable grasp of English. I was surprised by the amount of French being spoken in Ojochal, too. Everywhere we went the food was fantastic and the people were extremely nice.

Costa Rica is definitely on my list of countries to re-visit.

Thank you Robin, for everything.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I used to plan our trips around adventure and sightseeing, but with life so busy we like to mix in some simple relaxation in our trips these days. This place was perfect, all the amenities to be comfortable, but right in the middle of the jungle when you are ready to do something new. Relax at the pool and enjoy the jungle and ocean views one day, run into town and hop on a whale watching tour the next. A cozy balcony with a kitchenette to start your morning with fresh fruit and bread for breakfast, and plenty of great places to eat to have a quiet, top end, dinner at night. Can't say enough about the place.

Beautiful Jungle and Sunset View

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful jungle and sunset views equipped with everything you need. An infinity pool feels amazing anytime of the day especially after a hike through Ojochal. One of my favorite sounds were the Aracari birds singing in the papaya tree. We will be back again next year!
