We had a great room with a view of the ocean. The best beds that were so comfortable we only got up because we didn't want to miss anything. Enjoyed sitting at the kitchen bar watching the soccer games and lounging in the pool.

I wanted to get this review posted before I forgot how wonderful Mel and Ray have designed and maintain Casa MelRay. We stayed 6 nights this month and didn't want to leave. With only 4 rooms plus a small rental home and a penthouse apartment the hotel is intimate and charming. The hosts are generous (cookies & treats) and very... More

This is my second trip to Costa Rica and have been so fortunate to stay at Casa Melray each time. Never have I enjoyed a holiday more. In fact, I asked Mel and Ray if they ever had a guest that never left. They are the most gracious hosts and make you feel like you are part of the family.... More

Turned out, the guy i booked the fishing trip was busy that day (Valentines Day) , but our hosts made it happen for us!! One of their friends took... More

We have just returned from Costa Rica and we were so fortunate that our son hooked us up for our stay at Casa MelRay. The owners Mel and Ray welcomed us into their home as if they had know us all of their lives. The fresh fruit and special home baked goods daily were a hit. Whether you want to... More

All the guest rooms are beautiful, clean and very comfortable and the outdoor space is lovely! The outdoor space includes a well-equipped shared kitchen and... More

Just got done with a week in the guest house at Casa Melray, we fell in love with the place and location right away. Mel and Ray are the ultimate in hosts, but in a very unobtrusive manner. From the welcome bottle of wine, fresh cookies and milk to the fully furnished, very comfortable guest house to all of the... More

My husband and I travelled to Costa Rica this past November, it has taken me this long to try and figure out how do I possibly put into words perfection, because that was exactly our stay at Casa Melray. The hospitality started with Mel making arrangements for us to be picked up at the airport, from there, she was a... More
