This is the second time in two years that we have stayed at the Delfin. This year my husband and I brought my parents along. We were treated to Eddie's great Southern hospitality, clean hotel rooms, beautiful beach and a pool we barely left. We had a great time and wish we could have stayed longer.... but we will be...

Eddie has done a wonderful job recreating the spirit of Costa Rican gracious accommodations on the most magnificent beach, lined with few houses and inns but lots of palm trees. All you hear is the pounding of the surf and waves rolling in. The rooms are very well appointed, air conditioned, well equiped. Bob provided us with custom cooked meals... More

Just returned from a 3 night stay based on a recommendation from a local Tico. We were looking for a reasonable, beachfront hotel that was quiet but close to either eco-tourism or party options and the Delfin matched perfectly. Located about 20 miles south of Jaco Beach there's not much going on at the Delfin which was okay with us.... More

We arrived for our second visit at the Delfin and were welcomed with a hearty "Hi Y'all". The Delfin offers 15 rooms, all with Ocean views and balconys and a lovely pool area surrounded by the lush foilage of Costa Rica. The rooms are superb and are only outdone by the dining room which offers an excellent array of deliciously... More

We accidently came upon Hotel Delfin and couldn't have been more estatic. The hotel is directly on a huge secluded beach perfect for walking, tanning, or boogie boarding. The hotel is beautiful inside and out. The pool is large and welcoming. The breakfast was filling and delicious. My kids enjoyed their German Shepard named Sasha who would follow them out... More

My husband and I stayed for a week and had a wonderful time. The location is quiet and secluded, the beach is gorgeous, and we felt welcomed and right at home in no time. We had excellent meals at the hotel (made to order by a very talented chef) and a warm, friendly evening (or two, or three) at the... More

Recent reviews are fair and accurate. The owner is distinctly aloof, if not downright unfriendly. Although he spent hours sitting at the bar in the lobby, he would not deign to greet guests -- not just on arrival, but at any time. Nearly all of my interaction involved him talking about himself. When I gently teased him about his limited... More

We arrived at the hotel on Wednesday and weren’t really greeted at all. It seemed strange but we were so tired from our long drive (we stayed the first 3 nights at the Tree Houses near La Fortuna – GREAT experience) that we tried to ignore the unfriendliness of the place. Anyway, we were so far (the place is far... More
