We spent a week at Agua Dulce to attend a friend’s wedding - staff decorated the beach beautifully! All the staff were friendly and very accommodating. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Bathrooms are spacious. Air conditioning keeps you cool. But you won’t spend much time in your room – the large pool is just steps away. Great way to start... More

This resort , suites with breakfast included , was exactly what we were looking for. The food in the restaurant was exceptional. When fish was brought in for the chef he outdid himself in preparing it in so many different ways. The breakfast menu was varied , starting with a fruit plate which was nicely displayed. The cleaning, maintenance, gardening... More

we have stayed in Jimenez before, but did not know about the wonderful beach resort. Out of the way, yes, but that is what makes it " perfect". A wonderful clean room, overlooking the beach and the pool. We ate at the restaurant, good food and good prices. Why would you go into town when you have the beauty and... More

We booked a room at Agua Dulce for part of our honeymoon. The Good: The booking process was very easy and any questions we had were quickly answered. Chris was quick to respond and offered a lot of information about the area. He was extremely helpful. The beach was beautiful and very private. Staff was nice and the rooms were... More

Stayed at this Hotel for one night with 2 other couples. When we were checking in, the receptionist wanted to charge more for the room than our confirmation. He did back down as we had written copies of our reservation. He would, also, not break down the rates in to the 3 separate couples. We figured it out ourselves later,... More

Nice property on the beach, clean and well maintained. We were on a day trip and did not overnight here, but rather dined in the restaurant and looked around. Pool is nice, though a bit on the small side. Staff is friendly and make you feel welcome. Grounds are well kept. We enjoyed some nice tuna steak sandwiches and had... More

Agua Dulce sits on a pristine, black sand beach. As the beach sits on calm water, you can swim, unlike other areas of the Osa. One thing that I love about the place is that it is very unpretentious - a very nice place to relax and recover. The people are very friendly, and the food is Excellent. Marlin was... More

Really beautiful place to recover in after / prepare for Corcovado. Highly recommend. Amazing breakfast included in the price too! Go for the pancakes with bananas! Pool nice and good places to eat in two (but annoying cab journey back and forth)

Agua Dulce felt at times almost as if it is located at the very end of the civilized world. We drove all the way from San Jose, a gruelling 6 hour experience that is a true test of endurance. I loved the drive, but you may want to take the plane into Puerto Jimenez and then book a taxi to... More

I had an amazing time in the Osa Penninsula. I saw things and made memories I will cherish forever. Multiple types of monkeys and iguanas are right outside your patio door on a regular basis as well as other interesting animals and insects. Agua dulce is beautiful and the staff is pleasant for the most part (other than Marlin who... More
