A good budget option for those in the Paquera area. Our room had AC which worked well. The wifi was also functional altough in some areas of the room the wifi would not reach. The room had hot water although it never really got above a tepid temperature. The staff was very friend…

Thank you! First of all, we're delighted you decided to see for yourself what Mapi’s has to offer and so glad it met your overall expectations! Please always let us know any issues you encounter at the time of your stay, it may be a quick fix which is what happened here being this particular cabin #11 has a plug-in water heater unit, that was disconnected and we didn't realize it, until, another recent guest also commenting about THIS same cabin, not having any hot water. I right away, then called my staff to check it out, maybe we're missing something... THANKS AGAIN for bringing it to our attention! Nilda ~ Frank's Wife

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at Mapi's! We will look into WiFi situation because we never turn it off. There's also a "detailed" description of the cabin is all in the listing with even pictures but I will update it, actually saying "No Kitchenette"... My staff immediately also followed up with Curu because we never had this happen, they spoke with Mr. Luis who said, "it must of been that you got there when the office was closed and so the credit card machine was not available". Which is unusual cause they always are open early. But for it to not happen again, he suggested, to give guests our business card with their name on it, as to then charge them afterwards when credit card machine available. We appreciate you bringing this to our attention, as to avoid this happening again, we'll implement that right away. I'd also like to disclose, we have no monetary connections/affiliations, discounts or commissions with Curu or with any other Tour/ businesses in town. Just as a good Host and trying to do my part in supporting the community, we love to share what's available to see and do in the area but we have no control of how they manage their business. In all our 12 years there, this has been the first incidence of this happening, it just may be an isolated case, we're really sorry it happened to you. We will contact them as to further confirm how we should proceed to making credit card transactions, more "tourist friendly" with our guests... Thanks again for taking the time, to share this with us! Frank & Nilda Bienes

Frank was such a nice host. We were only there for a night, but he showed us around his property, did all he could for to get the hummingbirds to eat from our hand and had two nice rooms for us. He was very service minded and accommodating! Stay with Frank if you are in the area!…

Det er billigt og rent. Men ingen charme - der er plastik rundt om madrasserne, ingen varm vand og ikke særlig kønt. Til prisen ok
Frank User Profile
Response from Frank:
De fleste gæster forstår, at sommetider charme bliver ofret, hvis man foretrækker overkommelige priser. De foretrækker også renlighed, hvilket er vores hovedårsag til at dække madrasser med plastik. Men hvis vores gæster føler sig ubehagelige over det, ville vi være mere end glade for at give en anden seng spredning eller dobbelt polstring. TAKKER også så meget at give feedback på varmt vand! Der var en anden kommentar før dig, på denne hytte # 11 havde "svag" vand, men tænkte ikke noget af det, da andre gæster ikke fandt noget galt med det. Vi opfordrer alle vores gæster til at nævne dine bekymringer over for personalet, mens du er på stedet, når som helst vi kan forsøge at fange noget, mens en gæst stadig er der, er den bedste løsning. Da dette er anden gang, kommenterer en gæst om det "her", der fik mig til at ringe til min medarbejder med det samme og tænker nu der skal være noget galt, måske en tripped breaker osv. Denne kabine bruger en anden vandvarmer, en stikkontakt - og de fandt det frakoblet. Vi er så ked af ulejligheden, men vi er så glade for at du bragte det under vores opmærksomhed, og det er nu taget hånd om. Vi er taknemmelige for, at vi mødte dine forventninger til prisen! Jeg taler ikke hollandsk så jeg bruger en oversætter jeg håber det er korrekt =) Nilda / Frank's Wife

Très bon rapport qualité prix, très bien situé, sea food restaurant à proximité. Chambre correcte. Un plus pour les colibris / hummingbirds qui viennent boirent aux différents points d'eau placés devant les chambres. Parfait pour une nuit lorsqu'on est de passage.

Bonjour! Je vous remercie pour vos aimables paroles. Nous sommes très connus pour rester une nuit étant nous sommes si près du Ferry mais nous espérons que nos clients restent plus longtemps une fois qu'ils savent, il y a plus de choses à voir comme Curu Reserve et les nombreuses plages différentes, surtout ce que la plupart décrivent comme une expérience "magique", de voir les eaux luminescentes la nuit! Nous espérons que vous reviendrez! Pura Vida! Nilda ~ Frank's Wife

En general nos gusto, bien Ubicado. Nos costo con el aire y con la ducha, pues la ducha estaba como oxidada, el mando del aire acondicionado no servia del todo, estaba directo y no se podia climatizar a gusto. Falta de mesas estantes sillas o algo q no sea la cama para descansar…

Response from Frank:
Gracias por tomar el tiempo de compartir sus inquietudes, enseguida mande nota al del mantenimiento encuanto a los cables expuestos y los demas detalles en cual podemos resolver. Quisiera que noten, esta cabina, tiene dos cuartos, con Teli en cada uno. Pensamos invertir en el "tamano" de los Teli's no era justificado, cuando la mayoria de nuestros huespedes estan afueras explorando la naturaleza que abunda en nuestra area, llegan nada mas a descansar y ven poco Teli. Tambien seria otra inversion de hacer estantes, sillas y mesas pues se lo tenemos que hacer a todas las cabinas que por el momento no esta dentro de nuestro presupuesto, pero quizas en el futuro. Por ultimo, en mi mensaje de bienvenida, les digo que por favor avisen sus inquietudes cuando ESTAN ALLI, al momento, pues facilmente la mayoria de todas estas cosillas, se le podia resolver para que estuvieran mas a gusto pues es nuestro deseo que nuestros huespedes esten 100% satisfecho, a lo que esta en nuestro alcance. Nos alegra "en general les gusto" estar aca y apreciamos y dependemos de apoyo de todos nuestros huespedes. Gracias por darnos esa oportunidad.

I enjoy fishing on my time off or making time for fishing, I found my niche in Costa Rica! I'm a family man and felt Paquera Costa Rica, was a peaceful place to relax and made it our second home. I believe you don't have to break the bank when traveling and staying at Mapi's C…
