After looking on TripAdvisor, we decided to try this restaurant. What a good idea !!The owner is really friendly and the personal too.we both took the tuna (red for my girlfriend and medium for me) and it could not have been cooked better !! It was just perfect and so tasty.The portions are not insane but the quality compensate. The prices are a bit above average but after trying a lot of restaurant, this is justified.So in a word ... just go.Grazzie et merci Jessica !!

Domingo makes it very difficult for anyone to fault with the experience of eating at Villa Amapola. He is that carefully attentive since you make your reservation before heading there.Do not forget to ring him and let him know you are coming.Not only as an act of courtesy but also so he can best prepare to make your visit with him a memorable one.I had not been in the Caribbean South for over ten years. I resorted to TripAdvisor and found Villa Amapola as an alternative for my keenly gourmet family. Got high praises from my 8 year old onwards.Domingo and I spoke on the phone two days before the date and agreed on paella, beef tenderloin for the boys and as appetizers shrimp and - I had to insist - tortilla espaÃ±ola. Everything was to die for. Truly.Drinks were homemade iced tea (a home run with all under 18) and tinto de verano (a home run for us all over 18). We live in Costa Rica, if making it over to Villa Amapola was less than a 5.5 hour burden I would be back each weekend. No doubts, this is EXCELLENCE correctly spelled and don't be afraid you will ultimately mortgage your house. Price was correct for Costa Rica standards (less than San Jose for sure).Highly recommend.Domingo was that host you do not wish to leave.

100 m from the sea. Unique place for tasty french crepes (savory or sweet), salads, waffles, fruit juices... and much more! Open from 12pm to 9.30pm. Closed monday.
Iâve been to well over 50 hostels and Sel & Sucre is hands down the worst hostel experience Iâve ever had.The communal area is actually pretty nice, itâs got hammocks, nice seating arrangements. I didnât cook but the kitchen looked decent as well. Thatâs pretty much all the hostel has going for it. When I went upstairs to settle in and take a shower my travel buddy saw a cockroach which was completely disgusting so I immediately put my bags on top of my bed. Gross. We had an early bus in the morning so I wanted to get a good nights sleep. I tried to go on the internet before falling asleep but the wifi was awful so I gave up on that pretty quickly. Then I tried to sleep on the ultra uncomfortable beds and the loudest fan with clicking noises I have ever heard. I tried for hours to sleep. I can sleep through, lights, snoring, anything but this fan was so annoying that by the time it was 3am I was so frustrated I changed beds in another room so I can try and cram a few hours of sleep in. The next morning while I was waiting for my shuttle the owner ever so rudely demanded I pay for a second bed. Since I switched rooms. Then I explained to him why I switched rooms and he obviously didnât care and went on to tell me nobody had ever complained about this fan. And asked me why I didnât just turn it off. Obviously because it was 3am and didnât want to disturb everyone else by turning lights on to locate the switch for this ceiling fan, not to mention I didnât want to be inconsiderate and turn off a fan and make the room too hot.To be fair there were signs saying if you switch beds you have to pay double (which I didnât see but whatever). But if youâre going to have these rules then maybe have someone on shift at all times (no staff after 10pm) in case these problems arise or maybe make exceptions. If there are signs everywhere and the owner freaked out over it, this means it must happen often and there are legitimate reasons why people do it ... hint maybe your fan is too loud for people to sleep through?Anyway I paid him what he asked. I paid double for the worst hostel experience ever with awful/non existent customer service just so he would stop talking and stop being extremely petty and condescending.Oh and also this is the first hostel Iâve been to in Latin America that doesnât have clean water available to fill your water bottles with. Super bad for the environment and a service all hostels should and mostly do provide except this one for some reason.Donât stay here. Should I remind you that you had already changed for another bed around 6pm?The reception was definitively open, and you could have informed us if you had a real problem.Should I also remind you that at 3 in the morning you were talking so loudly that you were disturbing all the other guests?Your comment is a big joke, especially for someone who has apparently traveled over 50 hostels. Not a small idea of what respect means?We are not rude with respectful people. Think about that.Your message reflects exactly your attitude; pathetic.
