We stayed here for 3 nights r&r at the end of our recent holiday in Costa Rica and wished it could have been for longer. It's in a classic location on a bay on the Pacific coast. The swimming is fine in the sea (although there is also a good size pool with a wet bar), as long as you... More

Bahia del Sol is a very charming, small, ocean front hotel in Potrero, Costa Rica. While it may not have the best beach compared to its next door neighbor, Flamingo, you can swim in the ocean and spend a calm day at the beach and watch the best sunset right in front of you. The rooms are spacious and well-decorated.... More

We've just spent a wonderful week in CR staying at this hotel. Traveling with two kids, we had a 2BR suite which was spacious and met our needs perfectly. We found the location to be convenient, away from the center of commerce with an unspoiled beachside. The closest towns of Playa Flamingo & Playa Brasilita are within 10 minutes of... More

So happy that we found this hotel. It's right on the beach (no locals selling whistles) and the attentive staff and friendly service made us feel special all the time. The rooms are fairly large (we had a 2br suite) and may be a little "rustic" but we didn't spend a lot of time in it - most of our... More

The hotel is nicely kept on the outside. Great location. It's about 25 minutes outside Tamarindo. There are several restaurants close by. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The rooms could usue new softer beds.

This hotel was exactly what we were looking for - a bit of seaside luxury to end our tour of Costa Rica. This place has it all - it's quite small, so nice and intimate, a lovely sheltered garden area right onto the beach, and of course the beach itself - the Playa Potrero is gorgeous, quiet and calm (easy...

My husband and I had been planning a very ambitious trip to Costa Rica in late January 2015. We had to scale back the trip at the last minute due to my health. After a mediocre experience at our first hotel, we arrived at Bahia del Sol. It turned out to be the best vacation I've ever had. The service... More

Throughly enjoyed this hotel. The food was surprisingly excellent, relaxing and good service. The view and sunset on the beach was just beautiful. We were suprised that the sand was so dark (dirty brown/grey) but realized that this country has over 700 volcanos...thus darker sand. Wasn't a big issue. They have recliner chairs on the beach and the bar was... More

Check-in was easy and very smooth. Pablo at the front desk was very nice and extremely helpful throughout our stay. The room size and general feel was nice however it was not clean and felt outdated. The couches had stains on most of the pillows and the seat cushions. We liked the fact that the hotel offered a suite with... More

Having just eaten some Costa Rican pineapple it brought back memories of Bahia del Sol....although it doesn't quite taste the same as it did at breakfast each morning, sitting in a tropical garden overlooking the pool and the sea. We loved our stay, partly due to the friendly, helpful staff and partly because of it's wonderful location. We were in... More
