This is a wonderful boutique hotel with only 4 rooms. The owner live upstairs, and have a live in guard! He protects the property, and his wife cleans and cooks. The owners are great people from Texas, and have made a lot of changes to this hotel. Fresh paint, linens, and decor. There are new flat screen TVs and kitchenettes... More

New owners Charlie and Merrie made our stay just great. The only pet now is a sweet cat. The rooms have been freshly painted with all new linens and decorating. We even rode to the English speaking church with them. Had a wonderful time and can't wait to return soon.

We have stayed here several times . Owners live on property and are diligent about cleanliness and very helpful in every way. We made many friends here and had muc h fun. There are many Canadians and American "snowbirds" in the Surfside community. We highly recommend this lovely little resort.

I have finally found the little piece of paradise I'd been looking for the last 25 years! It's a small, five-room hotel directly on a beautiful tropical beach. The beach is about 2.5 miles long and great for walking. It sits on a natural bay, so the surf is gentle and ideal for swimming. It is never crowded, even during... More

Just got back from spending a week in CR, five days of which were at Puesta Del Sol Catalina Beach Resort in Playa Potero. My husband and I are not large resort, all-inclusive type travelers, and Puesta Del Sol turned out to be a wonderful choice for several reasons. First of all, location. Playa Potrero itself is a great little... More

Vickie and Dane were the ultimate "go to" hosts in this beautiful guest house. They seem to read your mind and tailor their service to the level of guest needs and energy. If you were wanting some quiet time to read they were very unobtrusive but could switch to full out providers of information in an instant. The rooms were... More

We had an amazing stay at Puesta del Sol Catalina! Dane and Vicki run a fantastic mini resort that makes feel though you have arrived in your own paradise. Both super people with an immense pride in their business in hosting. We spent our last two days in Costa Rica here and would highly recommend it to anyone who wants... More

If you plan on traveling to this part of Costa Rica there is really no other alternative when considering the location, price, and comfort. Dane and Vicky are amazing people who make you feel at home the minute you step foot on the property. The resort is very clean and well maintained. The rooms are spacious and clean. The resort...

Wonderful beachfront property. Dane and Vicki are so welcoming and accommodating. They work hard keeping the place nice and it shows. All the rooms have air conditioning. Also kitchenettes with refrigerators, toasters and coffee makers. There is a big ranchero with a propane stove for cooking outside for everyone to use and a small grocery store just across the street.... More
