I picked this place in part due to the #2 ranking on Trip Advisor. I have to say my two day stay was disappointing from beginning to end. We stayed in a second floor room with an Ocean view. The view was good but the room was old and outdated beyond what I would accept as rustic or "with character"... More

Spent 5 nights here with another family and we had a fantastic time, the staff were so friendly and helpful, breakfast by the ocean and setting up dinner for us on the beach. Hotel setting was spectacular and great for evening walks to the beach for shopping and dinner. Morning wake up calls by the howler monkeys made it Pura... More

My husband and I had a great three nights at Hotel Capitan Suizo. The staff are wonderful they were always nice and eager to make your stay enjoyable, food and drinks were some of the best we had while in Costa Rica and loved seeing the wildlife at the hotel! Great beach and glorious sunsets.

This hotel was amazing! The rooms, the location, the staff, everything was magnificent. We stayed in a room without air conditioning (which I was a bit concerned about) but it was perfect and air conditioning was not needed. The room was very large with two distinct areas, one for the bed and one for the living space/couches. The hotel is... More

I have to say that Hotel Capitan Suizo made our trip a truly great experience. The grounds are well kept and lush, the wildlife is abundant (howler monkeys, Iguanas, even raccoons looked happy and at home on the property). The staff is amazing!!!! Just to name a few, Tatiana at the front desk and gift shop was so friendly and... More

Return to Paradise After two years, my family and I were so happy to return to Capitan Suizo. It is our #1 favorite place. If you like nature and wildlife in a serene setting, this is the place for you. The pool is surrounded by an amazing tropical garden with frequent visits from a giant iguana, howler monkeys, tropical birds... More

Our experience at the Capitan Suizo was a good one. I didn't give it more stars because of our room. For the price our room wasn't the greatest. It seemed dirty-( because it was on the dirt road side of the hotel). The housekeeping staff tries very hard to keep it as dust/dirt free as possible. I would highly recommend... More

I LOVED this place. It was amazing. Truly. It was such a beautiful property. The grounds were kept so lovely. The staff was so friendly, kind and thoughtful. We felt we had made friends. It has a lovely history and we enjoyed getting to know the place. From the pool with howler monkeys swinging right above you, to the 1st... More

We stayed for 4 days at Capitan Suizo and they were Fantastic. First rate service from reservation through checkout. Everyone was so helpful and even fun. We enjoyed how they helped us with our Spanish (very patiently I might add) and always provided a little more than we could ever have expected. The room was lovely with high ceilings and... More
