This is not paradise by any mean
We booked this place because of some good reviews. however, during the time we stayed there, we thought why people provide good ratings for this place.
My wife and I just finished our vacation and we have to let people aware of the truth about this place.
Firstly, this place is not safe. The owner does not have sense of security for the place. Even though there is a door with a lock but the place is located at the back of the property. Someone could easily break in without anyone notice. We had to secure the door with a chair at night.
Secondly, the bed is very uncomfortable. It was like we were sleeping on a box spring. We booked for three night but we could not stay there the third because our backs and necks were hurt.
Thirdly, the place is pricier than any near by rentals and not as nice.
We found a place across the street that is ocean front, has security guard every night, and better customer service for $35 less per night.
You can get better place and services elsewhere with your money.
Owner's Response: As owner of Slice Of Paradise I feel I must address this review as I find it disturbing and inaccurate. There are 41 reviews on our VRBO website with 35 having 5 star ratings and the rest 4 stars. Anyone that is interested in staying with us can judge for themselves if the 40 other reviews is what a stay at Slice Of Paradise is really like or this one inaccurate one. Here at Slice Of Paradise we strive to please our guest and meet all their expectations. Our goal is to see that our guest are well attended to and have the best vacation possible and their time well spent at Slice Of Paradise. To say that it is not a safe place to stay here is simply not true. Every precaution has been taken to make S. O. P. one of the safest places to stay on this beach. In over 10 years we have never had a break-in or not even anything ever missing from any of our guest. There is always someone on the premises at all times day and night, we also have a good guard dog on duty all night that protects the property, some reviews have even mentioned our dog Captain. Our bungalows are equipped with top of the line stainless steel hardware and security deadbolts that are mounted into 1&3/4 to 2" solid teak doors, all of this hardware was brought down from the U.S. and is many times better than anything found in Costa Rica. I apologize to the person that wrote this review for the matteress not being to his wifes comfort. They told me just 15 min. before leaving that it was difficult for only the wife to sleep well. We have 3 different firnesses of mattresses available and if I had been told after their 1st night I would have changed the mattress for a softer one to her liking. Sorry, but I cannot please someone with the firmness of a mattress if not told. The rooms across the street ARE $25.00 cheaper not $35.00 as stated in the review and have no A.C. or kitchens. Our fully equipped rentals are more than 2X's larger so naturally our rent is adequately priced @ $25.00 higher. My neighbors and I are very good friends & work together providing guest with whatever their need are, A.C. and kitchens or beach front, so we send guest to whatever they would prefer. I also would like to state that Slice Of Paradise is equally priced with all other bungalows and rentals on this beach, and in some cases even cheaper. Our rentals are known to be the highest quality bungalows on Playa Matapalo by the people living on our beach and we are very proud to be reconized as that.
