I had a hard time deciding where to stay on the Guanacaste coast, but my entire family was so happy that we picked Bahia del Sol. This small (40 rooms) hotel was perfect for us: a lovely pool, lots of lounge chairs, a quiet beach just steps away, excellent staff, delicious breakfasts and comfortable, spacious rooms. We had originally booked... More

The location of the hotel is perfect! We enjoyed our stay - the rooms themselves are a bit dated and could use a freshen up - but then again we didn't spend much time in the room. The grounds are beautiful - the pool is very nice - although the last 2 days it had slot of leaves floating in... More

With only 42 rooms total, this small hotel was surprisingly wonderful. The staff was very friendly. Our room was spacious with a kitchen (no stove or microwave, but that was fine with me!) and has a lovely terrace in a beautiful garden. Very good restaurant on-site - breakfast was included. The pool was on the small side, but never crowded,... More

We loved our time at this hotel. The rooms were large and very clean! The free breakfasts were good and the happy hour specials were actually great deals. The staff was incredibly helpful with a difficult situation we experienced on our trip. We would definitely recommend this hotel if you are visiting the area.

We stayed here at the end of June for 2 nights, after spending the 2 nights at Rincon de la vieja and 3 nights at Arenal. When we arrived around 5pm on a Thursday, we were greeted by a very nice receptionist who offered us iced cold lemonade/ginger with some local rum! It was so refreshing and such a nice... More

Great beachfront hotel. Rooms were clean, comfortable bed, cold A/C. Nice pool with swim up bar. Food was good at the restaurant, and drinks at the bar were good also. Plenty of places to lounge around the pool or at the beach. Employees were nice and helpful as well. We will definitely be back as we live 4-1/2 hours away... More

Rooms: We stayed May 3 - 6. We had rooms 110 & 108. The rooms are just as pictured by numerous other guests: 2 queen beds with fans, AC, small desk, TV, and mini-fridge. There were snacks but there were (hefty) prices billed to the room if any were taken. Drinks in the mini-fridge as well. I'm not sure about... More

Family trip with 14 people. 3 nights here. Hotel needs a little TLC but it's still good. Food is good. Ate breakfast and lunch and one dinner. Staff is terrific especially Ernesto who went above and beyond for us. Thank you all!!! We leave tomorrow morning.

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of our CR vaca. Staff was EXTREMELY helpful and friendly; offering up local beach spots & local restaurant recommendations. Pros: beach location (can't beat Potrero), friendly staff, beautiful gardens, great, fresh breakfasts (that were included in the hotel rate), reasonable prices. Cons: dated amenities, uncomfortable beds
