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.

My boyfriend and I spent three nights at the Bahia Del Sol. We were so very impressed with everything including the food, the service, the pool, the beach and especially the Junior Suites. The rooms are over sized with loft ceilings, very spacious and colorful. There's even a kitchen and dining room. This location is in walking distance to many... More

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

Located on a beautiful beach in a quiet situation and the staff are extremely helpful.Apart from the stray dogs roaming the beach and the property as mentioned by other guests the real downside is that the peaceful site is ruined by terrible music all day and all night long.It's more suited to a disco.Not what you want when having your...

Don't let the drive down the dirt road to get there scare you off! This is a wonderful gem hidden in the town of Potrero. With only 30 rooms, the property has a small and personal feel to it. Service is the best we received throughout our stay in Costa Rica. So friendly and helpful. We stayed in the suite... More

I only visited the restaurant, not the hotel, but was all the same very impressed. I went with a school group. The food was wonderfully prepared, though the portions are not large. The atmosphere was great, we were seated outdoors in a pavilion a stone's throw from the beach, with candelight and white tablecloths. The wait staff were very attentive... More

If it tells you anything I have stayed here on 3 different trips, so obviously I like it. Bahia is only an hour drive to the airport and therefore a great last or first stay in Costa Rica.
