peaceful location, short walk from the beach and main street, excellent accommodation, beautiful gardens and pool area. Good breakfast. Reasonable price. Good place to stay before or after a flight as just 25 minutes to the airport.

We really enjoyed our stay at Puerta del Sol, a group of three friends sharing two rooms. The color scheme is very southwestern, blooming plants everywhere, rooms were clean, with culturally-appropriate decor but not kitschy. Poured concrete covered with cozy cushions made a couch, or a bed in one room, beds are comfortable, sheets fairly soft. The pool chairs have... More

Not a Hilton, but we had air conditioning, a pool, comfortable rooms, a breakfast buffet, and a reasonable price. All within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, souvenier shops, etc. Very friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again if we're in the area.

We spent two nights at La Puerta del Sol - a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. The staff were very friendly and the property is well maintained within a nice garden setting. The hotel is conveniently located within ~5 minutes walking distance to the beach and town "center", and quiet enough to relax by the side of the pool. The... More

On the Plus side: Spacious room, good AC, good wifi. Nice pool and well-kept gardens. Host and staff were very friendly and helpful. On the OK side: Decoration is a little rustic. Extensive use of masonry (bed is on a concrete block, and so is the bathroom countertop) On the Minus side: Fridge was a little weak, and already filled... More

WE booked a diving package with accommodation with deep blue sea diving. We had a large room which faces the pool with seating outside overlooking the well kept grounds. The trees and flowers were beautiful and there is lots of wildlife even there, with howler monkeys passing often and lots of birds The room is comfortable, with everything one needed,... More

We booked an accommodation and dive package through Deep Blue Diving. Excellent in every respect. The chalet style rooms face into lush gardens with a picturesque and refreshing pool - ideal for unwinding after a day out diving. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The hotel is a 5 minute walk from the town centre - close enough... More

I stayed at La Puerta del Sol in July/August 2014 as part of a diving holiday in Costa Rica. I booked the hotel via my Diving Shop as part of a Dive&Sleep Offer. Looking at the price of this offer I wasn't expecting too much of the hotel.... but I was more than positively surprised. This hotel is definitely more,... More

I have stayed here several times, often for a week or more, and I can't speak highly enough about it. The grounds are beautiful and immaculate, the pool is magnificent, the rooms are comfortable and well-appointed. And the owners and staff will bend over backwards to accomodate your needs. The location is superb-- a short walk directly to the beach,... More

We stayed here from April 19th - 26th. The place is clean and well maintained. The grounds are beautiful. The rooms are large with plenty of electrical outlets to charge all my cameras and computers. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a delicious breakfast each morning. The price was reasonable. It really is a 3 minute walk... More
