The location right on the beach, friendly staff and the well-groomed grounds go a long way to make up for the many little things that weren't up to what I was expecting. They all are small items but in total they all added up. Greeted at reception with a cool glass of limeade and cold towel. Everything went smoothly and... More

We stayed here for the second half of our ten day excursion and it was awesome. The staff was so kind and helpful. The food was delicious and inexpensive. The hotel was rustic and quaint. Just a perfect ending to a long awaited trip. I can't wait to go back.

We didn't stay at the hotel but popped in for some food. The atmosphere is super typical resort kitschy. Bob Marley plays in a loop in the background, the blender sounds off from time to time at the swim up pool palapa bar. And the menu has all the usual suspects at resort inflated prices. Staff was nice and friendly.... More

This place is amazing! The views are perfect, the food is above average, and the best part is the staff. It's a little more relaxed, but the adventures are not far away. I will be back!! There are also several excellent restaurants lining the beach, catamaran rides, snorkeling, horseback riding, zipline tours can all be booked at the front desk.... More

Our tour operator sold this hotel to us as a medium rated and it does have quite a few amenities, but I would rate it more as a basic hotel. It was very pleasant and ideal for a short stay (we had 4 nights after touring Costa Rica). If you come here don’t see anywhere else in the country then... More

Like this Hotel! Very hot here, have AC, at the beach. Service at the wetbar aren't too great and the Wifi is quite bad. But no biggie! We rented a Motorbike so we are all over the place - easy to find and very convenient! Have room service and a swimming pool. Hanging carpet outside etc. Very happy to be... More

Beautiful Hotel. The restaurant was unbelievable good. Service by Antonio and Victor were extraordinary. My Fiancee and I visited Costa Rica for a week this past March and stayed at Bahia Del Sol for 5 nights. For some reason I can't quite give the hotel 5 stars, can't put my finger on it. The grounds were well kept and beautiful,... More

As far as American-style resorts go, this one is great. We spent the first 5 days of our trip NOT doing the American-style resort thing, so coming here was a little like being back in the states. The hotel, gardens, pool, grounds, beach, etc. are beautiful!! Potrero is not an overly-populated beach so you definitely do not feel like you're... More

I called this review "bittersweet" because there definitely were some pluses and minuses in terms of our stay at this hotel in May 2015. You can see from my many other reviews on TA that I do my best to offer fair, balanced reviews and only call out things that the hotel itself can manage. For example, I never hold... More

The hubby and I stayed at Bahia for 3 days! It was a great start to our Costa Rica adventure through Guanacaste! Transfer/Arrival: Prior to our arrival I coordinated with the hotel the airport transfer from Liberia! It was awesome and the driver was on time and drove us safely to the hotel. The driver stopped along the way at... More
