You can go for the day to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club on Avellanas Beach..actually Manzanitas but close. The staff is professional, there is a spa, there is a restaurant and the food is excellent. Have been here four times..never crowded. Take a towel, try the ginger tamanrindo lemonade..yum

Our family spent a week at La Posada. Their staff is very professional and friendly. We loved staying in a little house, that looked like a nice spacious suite inside. It was clean and you could see all kinds of exotic animals from your porch. The territory is big and safe, which is great for walks and running. No stores... More

Be sure to bring snack foods and beverages with you as there is nowhere to purchase these items within the resort complex.The shuttles... More

The hotel is inside of a big real state complex that includes access to three beaches (Avellanas, Mansita and Langosta), two hotels (JW Marriot and La Posada Inn), a golf course and a Beach Club. In my opinion, this is the best place on Avellana beach .Rooms are nice, quiet, clean and comfortable. The master suite is equipped with a... More

We have been staying at La Posada for nearly ten years now including having our guests stay here for our wedding 4 years ago. Sadly, this place has seriously gone downhill. While it was never a luxurious place to stay, the price was right and the staff was friendly & helpful- it was a very charming experience. Also, the free... More

I stayed at the Posada hotel as well as a villa with my husband and some friends and have mixed feelings about the property. The grounds and the beach club are quite nice with an infinity pool overlooking the beach. They also make a myriad of delicious drinks and have good food to have poolside (tons of options to chose...

Lovely Hotel, nice Beach Club to use, just a pity it is on a complex, and if you are on a package, you are restricted. Could do with a shop, or a shuttle to Tamarindo, occasionally, to get a break. No complaints, we were there a week, just planned to get some bits, no go !! Back in uk today,... More
