We had a great 5 nights here. The hotel is relatively small, unobtrusive and completely out of the way of the overly-touristy Playa Flamingo, yet still close enough to visit should you feel the need. The staff are all wonderful & extremely friendly. The beach and sunset views are stunning and the Happy Hour cocktails a (rather dangerous!) must. Would... More

We really enjoyed the Bahia del Sol Nov. of 2014. The staff was friendly and helpful; the restaurant was really good with an interesting menu - Asian inspired. Our room was not beachfront but the hotel's beach was beautiful.

It's all in the title, the last 4 nights of our vacation in exploring Costa Rica were at the Bahia del Sol, an excellent place to relax, unwind and enjoy the surroundings. The chalet bungalow was well equipped, air conditioned, clean and well maintained. Dining at the hotel was very good, service was good and very friendly staff, the pool... More

We stayed at Bahia Del Sol for nine days. On our first night, we wanted to change our room to be closer to the ocean. The concierge was very accommodating and we changed rooms without trouble. The beach that the hotel is located on is beautiful, and the waters are warm and safe. The staff were incredibly friendly and helped... More

I would come back to visit Bahia del Sol in a heartbeat. It was the most beautiful place I believe I've ever stayed. The staff was so helpful, the rooms clean, the food was amazing, and the beach was fantastic! In fact, I think I'm going to book another trip there!

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.
