While in Playa Hermosa we dined here and it was so delicious. We had drinks at happy hour first while we enjoyed the beautiful view and then had a fabulous meal on the outdoor patio. The food was so good and they catered to our vegetarian needs. I would highly recommend this restaurant for the food and the view. Hit... More

We stayed at this wonderful little hotel a year ago. It was owned by a nice Canadian woman who visited the hotel daily. Everything about it was amazing. People from all over town would come to eat since the food was so good. The staff was very friendly and really seemed to care personally about the guests. How things have... More

Great location set up overlooking the bay and ocean. Secluded and peaceful with clean comfortable rooms. Beds just right for a good sleep, very important to us. Great breakfast on the patio overlooking the ocean and the small quite Playa Hermosa bay just down the street. What a find. Hope to visit back soon.

My husband and I stayed here for the first part of our honeymoon. We payed $50 to have a driver pick us up at the airport, it was about 25 minutes from the Liberia airport. The hotel is lovely. Very small too, only 10 rooms -which is great because I don't like crowed hotels. We actually had the entire place... More

My husband, 13 year old daughter and I stayed at this lovely little hotel for two nights in April. It was a delightful experience. Only 10 rooms so it felt like we were staying in a friend's glamourous home. Breakfast was fresh, typical Costa Rican fare. Dinners were great - fresh, delicious tuna, mahi mahi and I highly recommend the... More

Sorry to leave this wonderful little place. The superior staff and setting make this a great value pick. The staff is extremely warm and gracious, and I compare the service favorably to luxury experiences (Ritz Carlton, etc). The rooms are clean and simple (nothing special), but the bed was comfortable and did the trick. While on site you really don't... More

We enjoyed our night there. Rooms were clean, service was great, dinner was tasty and it was a fair price. Can't go wrong with this place. The breakfast was extensive and set us out on the right foot for the day.

We didn't stay in the hotel, but we did end up coming for dinner many times. The food was excellent, and the service was even better. There were many choices, and everything we tried was excellent. The staff made an effort to learn our names (even though we weren't guests at the hotel), and they taught us some spanish too!... More
