This was an unplanned side trip on our Costa Rican vacation, and we are so glad we made the effort to get here! The hotel is beautiful, right on the beach. The rooms were lovely and comfortable. We are a family of four, with teenagers. We were comfortable in the room, mostly, we stayed on the beach. The meals were... More

My first meal in the area was a lunch treated by my local friend. I live where fresh fish is abundant and the best deal in restaurants. I was impressed by the selection here of local fresh fish and the prices relative to what I am used to, $12-14 for dinner portion of fish, finger potatoes and roasted vegetables was... More

We recently stayed at this hotel for four nights. I had a backpack stolen out of my room and two swim suits. Property is not safe as there is a walkway going directly from beach through hotel to street. No effort was made to rectify problem. No lights on property after dark, absolutely would NOT recommend this property! Find someplace... More

This is my second family trip to this hotel and every time we come we surprise ourselves with it's wonderfulness. Nice, clean and comfy room (especially the ocean view suite with jacuzzi). Right in front of the beach, fantastic sleep with ocean breeze and waves sound. The restaurant offers delicious and healthy meals. Definitely coming back many times more!!

This hotel has the most idyllic location I ever saw: right on the beautiful and quiet beach where you can just walk into the waves or look at the boats, moored at some distance. We booked in advance and got a free upgrade on the spot, now had a spacious apartment with balcony looking into the garden and pool. Within... More

All was perfect, beautiful room apart from a somewhat short bed. Location idyllic, wildlife fascinating, including howler monkeys between our room and the pool. Staff were both courteous and friendly, food was really good.

What a true find in one of the most tranquil slices of paradise on earth. Gorgeous and luxurious describe this hotel, once you find it. Our room, ocean view was super huge with a huge terrace facing the beach. The room was extremely comfortable, well appointed and we couldn't need anything else. Lots of light when you want it but...

Great hotel at a small non touristic beach ideal to relax under the palm trees. The rooms are very big and includes two tv's, living room, large bedroom and luxury shower.We enjoyed a great massage at the beach and great meals were served in the hotels restaurant.

We love this hotel, we really do!! the location, the rooms, the pool, the quiteness but the food is unbelivably bad!! it's too bad because it really ruins the experience. Other than that, I would recommend it but you better make dinner and breakfast reservations somewhere else. The service needs to improve as well! DO try the massages on the... More

After 5 weeks of touring Costa Rica and staying on budget to mid ranbge hotels this was our taste of coastal luxury before heading back to San Jose. Well worth hunting out this hotel is ideal for a short beach break with most of what you need available onsite or along the beach. Troops of monkeys roam the trees in... More
