During August my wife and I from the UK were celebrating our Silver Wedding Anniversary touring Costa Rica and this was our final hotel. Our daughter came with us. We can say in all sincerity that the Bahia del Sol was one of the loveliest hotels we have ever visited. It has everything going for it: exceptionally friendly staff, spacious,... More

It's a less crowded area along the coast with long stretch of dark brown and black sanded beach. At any time there are barely 2-3 other people on the beach. We loved spacious rooms and lush very tall gardens of hotel. I would give special praise to delicious food we had at hotel restaurant, we had lunch and two dinners... More

Dear Youralana, Potrero Beach is a beautiful private beach, great for long walking, swimming and enjoying the amazing sunsets, just in front of our beautiful boutique hotel. Every room in our hotel is unique and spacious and our gardens are very well maintained with trees over 100 years old. How nice to get special praises towards NASU Restaurant, we put... More

We absolutely loved our stay at Bahia del Sol! The staff is incredibly nice. We learned so much about Guanacaste from talking with the staff. The grounds are beautiful with an assortment of birds, geckos, iguanas, and fun beach life. The beach is quiet and clean.

I had the great experience of staying at Bahia in late August and again for a few nights in September while waiting for my new retirement residence in Potrero to become available. You only have to be at Bahia del Sol Hotel for an hour or so before every staff member seems to know you by name. I've never experienced... More

Such a lovely small beachfront hotel - this really is a special place with friendly staff and great service. Our room was only a few metres from the swimming along a short colourful garden path. The swim-up pool to the bar was fabulous and you can literally step off your lounger and walk a few metres onto the beach. There... More

We had the opportunity to spend 2 nights here last week. The staff and grounds were A Plus. The first night there was an iguana between the ceiling and roof. They did not get it out but did upgrade us to another room. Happy hour drinks are $3.50 and there is a menu but they don't cheat on the drinks.... More

Stayed here for 4 nights for the Tamarindo Marathon. First, for the runners out there, do not stay here for the marathon as there are many road closures and it's too far away for the race. Best to stay right in Tamarindo. That said, the hotel, staff, cleanliness, grounds, pool and everything was fantastic! Decent prices for food and drinks... More
