Rancho Coral is right on the beach and is much like a motel in the USA was 30 years ago. The air conditioning worked (and that is not always the case in Costa Rica) and it is just short walk to be in the Pacific Ocean. It was nice to have lots of hot water too. The beach is is... More

We stayed at Rancho Coral for 3 nights and had a very pleasant stay. Wilber and Eva are great hosts - very helpful and accomodating. The room was clean and the grounds are beautiful. The beach is just a few steps from your door.

The setting is fantastic, right on the beach with beautiful, lush grounds. It's so relaxing to sit and listen to the surf and scarlet macaws fly over. The breakfast menu includes a typical Costa Rican plate (eggs, rice and beans and tortillas), an American breakfast (eggs, bacon & toast), banana pancakes, fresh fruit, smoothies and even yogurt with granola. The... More

Super cute place on the beach. We stopped here wanting somewhere quiet and less touristy for our last night in Costa Rica. This was perfect. The pizza was great and the employees were all very nice. You do need to be a dog lover though, as the owner has rescued a number of small dogs. Our only complaint was that... More

This sweet little hotel is right on the beach in Esterillos Oeste. The most sincere ( Artavia) family run this little hotel on the beach. They also rescue and foster an assortment of very sweet misfit but very well behaved dogs( one of my favorite things.) This Dog friendly hotel has rooms that are clean and spacious, with a rustic...

Family run hotel, best location, lovely accommodations. The high tide comes once a year and the beach gets even closer to the hotel... Surfs up! I will be back again, to try the pizza they are now serving.

This hotel is situated in the sleepy town of Esterillos Oueste, 20 min. south of Jaco, Costa Rica. Beautiful studio suites, with kitchenettes. The hotel is run by a Costa Rican family, perfectly bilingual, friendly, and helpful. Only steps to the beach and great food in the restaurant very reasonably priced. Hearty breakfast, open air dining with ocean view and... More

We dined at this place tonight, it was incredible. I have been in Costa Rica for 11 years. This is the best Pizza i have ever eaten! I loved that it was not too pricey and is family run. We WILL be back.

I loved this place! It was recommended to me by a friend as I was looking for a peaceful vacation spot for my kids to come visit. It was a wonderful experience! Great room, great food at their pizza restaurant, lovely staff and the beach is soo beautiful! Definitely worth a visit.
