When I go somewhere tropical I like to have a room with a view. Almost every room in this hotel looks out over foliage, but no ocean view unless you are at the pool. For the price we paid (approx. $400 a night) you can definitely do a lot better. It was definitely a very spacious room, but very "B"... More

Dear JenHillJHCCS, we appreciate your comments, however we think your appreciation is a misunderstanding, because we don’t offer ocean view rooms, if you go to our website you can check this by yourself, on the other had what we do offer is the closeness to the beach, probably you are not going to find in the Guanacaste Area a hotel...

We arrived in need of a relaxing vacation in a quiet place. That's exactly what we got. It was perfect. This hotel is small and beautiful. When we arrived we were brought drinks of some kind of local fruit from the bar. They were virgin, but the server offered to add some of the local sugar cane liquor (Cacique Guaro)... More

I had a lovely time at this hotel. The staff is excellent, so very friendly and helpful.I want to first say that this hotel is not in playa flamingo, it is a small beach called portrero.

My friend and I had the pleasure of staying 5 nights at Bahia del Sol in January during the dry season. We had a wonderful stay. The hotel is absolutely beautiful and in a great location on Playa Potrero. You are literally steps away from the ocean. The views are spectacular, we especially enjoyed watching the sunset.

The hotel has a lot to like about it. The location is out the way, grounds are lovely and well maintained and the view from the loungers is nothing short of sublime. We relaxed quickly and well and slept early. The beach is only OK, but Punta Pensa - 5 minutes by car - is a fantastic white sand beach.... More
