When we arrived, the manager was called to tell us that unfortunately the hotel had been overbooked and our room had been given away. Needless to say, we were NOT HAPPY - especially because we had booked many months previous. Maik, the manager apologized profusely and told us that he had secured an oceanfront condo just a few hundred meters... More

I can't say enough positive things about the front desk staff. Ernesto, Hector, Maik, Carol...sorry if I've missed anyone...were fantastic. Knew us by name the entire trip, always had a smile and tried to help when we had questions. Beautiful grounds, well kept rooms, good breakfast included. Very relaxing stay. Can't wait to go back.

Before booking this hotel I noted some excellent reviews - I went, therefore, with high expectations. At the outset, I have to say that I can only report things as I see them, and compare resorts and hotels with others that I've visited. In this instance I am comparing 'Bahia' with "posh beach huts" in Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Bali,... More

We are a couple from Boston, Massachusetts. We decide to celebrate our 20th anniversary by traveling to Costa Rica, our first. We booked our tour through Miguel Garcia at Carta de Jiajes Travel Agency in Madrid Spain. We lucked out because Miguel was so knowledgeable and helpful. We visited La Fortuna and Monteverde and those were great but this review... More

This was a wonderful hotel and a great place to stay in Costa Rica. It starts with a super friendly arrival, tropical juice and a quick delivery to your room. The room (standard, they have suites as well) was spacious and comfortable, strong AC, lots of english speaking channels on TV and comfy queen size beds. Free wifi that worked... More

Our room was dark but loved its coolness! Food was delicious. Only drawback was the shower didn't work properly especially in the evenings when presumably... More

We visit this Hotel in January and we liked for several reasons. The proximity to the beach, the pool and the jacuzzi and the great employees working at this Hotel. I would to mention Ernesto is your guy at the Front Desk, Victor at the restaurant and of course the reservation manager Jorge who book the hotel for us. Spacious... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable. -The Wi-Fi, which many said could only be had in the lobby/pool area, reached to our room (106) without a problem. -the walkways with all the lush landscaping, were gorgeous. -Swim-up bar at the pool. Some on here said the pool was... More

Bahia Del Sol was everything you could ask for in a perfect vacation spot. The rooms wer very nice and the grounds so beautiful and nicely kept. The beachfront was very nice a quiet. It often felt like you were on a private beach. Excursions could be planned right at the front desk with the help of their wonderful staff.... More

If you like a lot of noise untill the early hours ,this hotel is for you. I had booked for three nights ,checked out after one. Rooms nondiscript.Location on the Beach.Having a rental car here would be a big plus.
