Photo Fakeout: The missing panoramic view
If you're a morning person, you may have caught Oyster.com featured in a segment on NBC's Today Show this morning. Last week we were on location with the Today Show in beautiful Costa Rica, where an Oyster investigator found the above Photo Fakeout.
La Mariposa Hotel only shows one photo of a Full Ocean View Room on its website (seen above, left). When we checked into that same room type, we sadly only found one of the three windows shown in the hotel's photo.
The room shown on the hotel's website does exist -- it's the Full Ocean View Room that's located at the corner of the hotel. We, however, received a Full Ocean View Room in the middle of the hallway, and therefore only had one window.
To be fair, the view from our balcony was beautiful, and the hotel is known for its amazing panoramic views from its restaurant and pool -- just be cautious when choosing which room type to book.
