The hotel was clean and family friendly. We were a couple, so the kids running around got a little annoying. The staff was kind and attentive with our needs. Our room even had a private jacuzzi on the balcony, but the water in it was cold so we never used it. At night, the hotel has cute lights on the... More

Though it was a little difficult to find, located off the main road (Route 159) in Playa Hermosa, the accommodations were great. The Hotel is located right on the beach, having some rooms with a beach view. The suites are a nice size, with an outdoor area and a sizeable bathroom. There were plenty of plants around the grounds making... More

This was our first stop in CR. On the first night, we're lying in bed, and begin to hear sounds coming from above - scurrying and scratching. Since we were on the top floor, we figured out that it was monkeys! They didn't stay too long on our roof, but the next morning, we saw them in the trees. Welcome... More

Friendly, Fun Staff that make you feel right at home and truly embody Pura Vida... One of my favorite things was that housekeeping constantly made different formations with towels throughout the rooms.. The Hotel is clean, comfortable and right on the beach though in a more remote part of Playa Hermosa.. Between the waves crashing and the howler monkeys, you... More

Staying at this hotel is like staying at a spa without the spa treatments( though these services are available there). The hotel is located in a more rural part of the country, it is a very quiet, tranquil setting. The rooms are spacious, clean; it is well managed with very attentive staff. The beach is just steps away from each... More

My husband and I stayed in a junior suite as part of a large group visiting for a wedding held at the hotel. We had a great stay. Our suite overlooking pool area (2nd floor) was clean and spacious for two people. We loved the in-room coffee pot (Hotel generously gave us more upon request) and our small balcony. We... More

The hotel is absolutely stunningly beautiful and the rooms are spacious and very cool. Our room had blackout curtains available via remote control and our own hot tub on the deck. It was lovely to fall asleep each night listening to the Pacific from right outside our room as it was on the beach. We had requested a king size... More

We found this hotel by accident when searching for a place near Liberia airport after San Jose was closed down. It was lovely nestled in the trees right on the beach. It was lovely and quite.The staff were very friendly, courteous and spoke English too. The restaurant food was good and not over priced. The beach is quiet and peaceful.... More

We had a wonderful experience at this lovely hotel and place. The welcoming passion fruit juice se the perfect tone for the check-in. The wonderful architecture incorporates the grand tree in the center, the open air all around, the beautiful and well-kept gardens, all are a feast to the eyes. Staff are all extremely helpful, friendly and nice, from reception... More
