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). The htoel is also close to the pacific dive center going to Catalina... More

Dear Bernd B, We agree, Potrero is a good location to visit other beaches in the area, is a safe beach town closet o lot of beautiful beaches including our own.

My wife and I spent a week at Bahia del Sol in July. We were able to rent the King Sun Suite. It was one of the nicest rooms we've ever booked. Very cozy and romantic.

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.

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
