The kindness of the hosts! Mar and Manuel were always there for you and were so very nice people to stay with. In addition, the teachers were all very nice. I've had Olivia and Frank and were very helpful
Perhaps make an even clearer distinction for people who want to learn Spanish for conversation during their journey. And above all learning to communicate a lot with the population instead of focusing on difficult language constructs found in texts.

No help from the school, without commitment, lots of harshness. Hardly ever speaking in Spanish. Frequent changes in teachers. This is a school for young people who came to enjoy themselves.

Friendly staff, great accommodation, many different beaches in the neighborhood.
I also stayed at the schools in Boquete and Turrialba. Everything was really great. The rooms are very large (for 10$ /night) and clean. The accommodations are very nice, spacious and well equipped. Even with a nice garden. They were the best hostels I've seen during the two months I stayed in Central America.

Clean, very friendly staff and plenty to do in the area.
It would work better if you would have x number of words to learn each day.
