Like this Hotel! Very hot here, have AC, at the beach. Service at the wetbar aren't too great and the Wifi is quite bad. But no biggie! We rented a Motorbike so we are all over the place - easy to find and very convenient! Have room service and a swimming pool. Hanging carpet outside etc. Very happy to be... More

Beautiful Hotel. The restaurant was unbelievable good. Service by Antonio and Victor were extraordinary. My Fiancee and I visited Costa Rica for a week this past March and stayed at Bahia Del Sol for 5 nights. For some reason I can't quite give the hotel 5 stars, can't put my finger on it. The grounds were well kept and beautiful,... More

As far as American-style resorts go, this one is great. We spent the first 5 days of our trip NOT doing the American-style resort thing, so coming here was a little like being back in the states. The hotel, gardens, pool, grounds, beach, etc. are beautiful!! Potrero is not an overly-populated beach so you definitely do not feel like you're... More

I called this review "bittersweet" because there definitely were some pluses and minuses in terms of our stay at this hotel in May 2015. You can see from my many other reviews on TA that I do my best to offer fair, balanced reviews and only call out things that the hotel itself can manage. For example, I never hold... More

The hubby and I stayed at Bahia for 3 days! It was a great start to our Costa Rica adventure through Guanacaste! Transfer/Arrival: Prior to our arrival I coordinated with the hotel the airport transfer from Liberia! It was awesome and the driver was on time and drove us safely to the hotel. The driver stopped along the way at... More

We stayed 8 days, it wasn't long enough! The hotel is set in a circle around a small but beautiful tropical garden with a huge central Guanacaste tree. Rooms are mainly ground floor and vary in size, we were given a huge suite with large bedroom bathroom and huge sitting room/kitchen. We could have catered for a family of 6,... More

S/O to Ernesto, Pablo and Hector for all your assistance. Thank you for making our vacation perfect. We would highly recommend Bahia del Sol to all!! Great staff, pool, beach front and location. We can't wait to go back to Costa Rica.

After 10 days of touring and activities this was the perfect place to unwind. Really nice hotel, great grounds with lovely pool with Jacuzzi and swim up bar. Stunning location right on the beach. The sunsets are amazing and best enjoyed with a cocktail (happy hour coincides with sunset - nice!). Restaurant served by far the best food we had... More
