    Lovely views from the room and the property. Easy check in. Great staff but we found a Scorpion on in our room. Also lizard and cockroaches. I think cleanliness can be better. We were worried about some insect bites to the kids but fortunately nothing happened. Good decent restaurant and good food. Overall experience was good.

    El Establo did not refund my stay after my flights to Costa Rica were cancelled by the airline two and a half months before I was due to check in. I understand that times are tough due to Covid-19, but this was the only reservation in my 3 week itinerary that didn't come through with a refund. Boo!
