We were looking for peace, quiet, tranquility, and friendly, warm waves. La Dolce Vita and the Esterillos area delivered on all fronts :) The room we stayed in was simple and immaculate. We were able to get food from the local super and cook our lunch and dinners in the kitchenette. The air conditioning in the bedroom was powerful, which... More

My wife and I stayed there for 4 nights. We loved every minute. As we came from Europe, time difference forced us to lay down at 8pm and to wake at 5am. We prepared coffee, took mugs and chairs and sat to the beach to watch sunrise. It was awesome! After I run by the beach, wife prepared breakfast and... More

I was extremely happy with this hotel for the price, location, service, and the fact that it met my needs very well. I think I will be returning there for my surf trips in the foreseeable future. I'm a middle aged SUP and longboard surfer who travels to Costa Rica solely for surf. I do not require much in the... More

This little hotel is a lovely find, right on the beautiful Playa Esterillos. Rooms have a kitchen, sofa, bedroom and small bathroom and are clean, comfortable and well air conditioned. The hosts could not be more helpful and served a fresh continental breakfast to us on our patio. They also recommended a good restaurant within walking distance ( Los Almendros).... More

My wife and I stayed here for our first few days in Costa Rica. It's a no-frills hotel, but it is very neat, very clean, safe, and the staff is super helpful and friendly. The hotel sits directly on the beach, perfect for an early morning swim or to watch the sunset in the evening. Emilio and Jasmine took great... More

This hotel is located right on the beach. Beach is wide and sandy. The hotel has a gate by the beach which closes at night to keep the place secure. The room offers a kitchenette with a living room area and separate bedroom with air conditioning. The room is on the first floor with a private patio. Breakfast is served... More

The hotel was basic, kept very clean and well maintained. The hosts, Emilio and Jasmine were incredible. Always smiling, they kept the place safe and clean. Delivered breakfast with a smile and helped us with what we needed. Even the beach in front of the hotel they raked and watered every morning. We liked the more quiet, laid back rural... More

This small hotel offers kitchenette units and has a pool. Cleanest in town. Is located right on the beach. Next door to hotel is a camp site where locals come to enjoy the beach on weekends. They bring their families and music. We found the place quite difficult to have a restful night on weekends. Monday to Thursday it is... More

When we arrived at La Dolce Vita I was in awe of our view from our room. We were lucky enough to get the upstairs room and we just loved sitting on our deck and looking at the ocean. The room is nothing fancy but was clean and comfortable. It is important to remember you are right on the beach... More
