Yes, I was there last week. It's closed and undergoing extensive construction renovation. We were walking by from La Amistad on our way to New Fantasy MP three doors down when we bumped into one of the American owners of La Amistad on the sidewalk out front. He bought the building at fire sale price a few months ago and plans to open in 2nd quarter, 2015, maybe by April. He invited us inside for a 20 minute tour of most of the rooms. They plan to allow guests at either hotel to have full rest/bar privs at either location. As most of you know La Amistad is the best deal in town with its all inclusive deal. With taxes I paid $100/night and had all the booze I could possibly quaff, as many meals as I wanted, no food rationing (one of my wings ate 5 meals a day), free laundry (did 2 loads), free local and long distance calls, strong wifi, totally guest friendly, no joiner fee like HDR, discount on the in-house massage (excellent), free one way taxi out to SJO, free round trip taxi service to Jaco Beach offered to all guests that check back in for another stay as we did (savings of $200 round trip). Absolutely best deal in town. No need to walk the streets looking for places to eat and drink. We plan on staying there (Castillo) on our next trip as it's a bit closer walk to the venues and away from the train noise that is the only drawback to LA. However, they now hire signal men to hold traffic thus stopping the train whistle. Works great now and alot quieter. The Sportsmen Lodge is OK, not hating but they don't offer the deal on food/booze/transpo, etc. Don't go anywhere else gents. Period.
