We arrived at this quaint Hotel June 26th, we had no idea what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best family vacations we have ever had. The staff is out of this world, especially Victor and Kaylor. They literally bent over backwards for us. They know the area very well and had great advice of what... More

We stayed in one of the suites and this hotel is really nice and the grounds are kept very nicely. The staff here is amazing especially Jose. Potrero Beach is one of the nicest beaches that Costa Rica has, you will love it.

Just returned from a 3 night stay at Bahia del Sol and absolutely loved it. The property has beautiful sunset views and the grounds are amazing. The hotel is very quiet and serene. We were really surprised at the food, it was very tasty and portions were more than enough. All the staff were friendly and remembered us by name... More

We were there in the down season, so the place was pretty deserted and we basically had the hotel/beach to ourselves. Rooms were nice & clean. Great A/C. Beach was nice - black sand, which was cool, but the water was really murky because of it, so you'd come out with the suit full of black sand inside & out.... More

We are traveling for the first time to Playa Potrero and would definitely stay here again. The setting is beautiful. The beach is gentle with very small waves. Great place for a long walk. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The restaurant at the hotel has excellent food at a fair price. Much better than the dinner we had... More

We just left this hotel on 7/6/14 and we did not want to leave. We have been all around the world and this little hotel has got to be the best atmosphere to be in. The staff is a collection of some of the nicest people you want to meet. If you want something they will get it, find it,... More

This hotel is a great hotel but 30 minutes and a $35 dollar cab ride from Tamarindo which is the very very tourist part of the Guanacoste area. This hotel is semi-remote but the area is beautiful. There are little random restuarants around that are very good with in walking distance. (Hotel has a restaurant also) The beach is beautiful... More

We spent a wonderful week with our young children. If you plan to stay, you should know what to expect. 1. The beach is not the white sand of Tamarindo, but it is lovely and very quiet. Not a rowdy teenager or college student in sight. Our kids enjoyed playing with the local children who came down to the beach... More
