We visited this hotel back in June and I have been meaning to leave a good review ever since. On arrival I was a little concerned that the hotel seemed a little "out of the way" but I soon cam e to realise that this was what gave it its charm. The welcome drink on arrival was very welcome and... More

Great out of the way place. Very very nice. I would stay again. Not easy to find so prepare. Used this for a diving trip and the staff was friendly and were very accommodating to help our trip be a success.

I found an amazing deal for the Bahia del Sol & was anxious to enjoy the black sand beach and Central America. You should know staying in this resort, you will need to venture down an extremely bumpy road; my travel mate got really nauseous... there's really no way of avoiding it.. The hotel is really lovely; we were upgraded... More

We just spent five fantastic days at Bahia del Sol and can highly recommend this wonderful boutique hotel. Travelling with three kids can be a challenge. Many hotels only accept a maximum of four people per suite. Bahia del Sol offers 2 bedroom suites with the option of an extra roll out bed. The suites are very spacious. Two of... More

This is a perfect chill out hotel right on a quiet beach with a pool so good for kids. Most will have been wandering round Costa Rica enjoying the scenery and wildlife so deserving of a couple of days on the beach. Lovely pool side bar, good restaurant small menu but good choice and well served. Nice rooms in a... More

We had a wonderful time at Bahia del Sol during our 7 day stay at Bahia del Sol. The grounds are beautiful, the suite was roomy and comfortable but the best part, was the staff....everyone, without exception was pleasant, friendly and very accommodating.

We had such a great experience at Bahia del Sol. All of the staff were very friendly and accommodating. They have the best cookies in the rooms and my toddler age daughter loved them so much that they were willing to whip up a special batch. We hardly left the hotel as it has all the amenities, beach front, tranquil,... More

Our family of 5 just returned from a 10-day stay at Bahia del Sol. The grounds are beautiful with a nice pool, swim up bar and beachfront access. They have free yoga classes, too! The sunsets are amazing, the food is good (although expensive), but it's the staff that makes this place extra special. They all have smiles on their... More

My girlfriend and I had come here after a week in Monteverde. It was exactly the relaxation we were looking for after a week of adventure eco-tourism. The shore consists of pristine black sand and is still relatively undeveloped. Pablo at the front desk greeted us with a fruity Guaro cocktail each, which was well received after 3 hours on... More

The hotel is nicely located to visit all the great beaches in the surrounding area with a rented car like Tamarindo (good for kids to learn surfing), Playa Conchal (good for snorkeling and beautiful), Playa Flamingo and Playa Potrero itself (dar sand but most beautiful sun down).
