Nice pool, the reception is not good, in January had a very nice girl, she always had a beautiful smile on her face ,but this last visit we made was not thus, we have a receptionist, with little attention to the client and lack of interest in we. It is sad that such a nice hotel has such bad attention... More

Yea, pretty much the best spot in town. Great food, wonderful layout, pretty much your private beach right out front... Killer, super friendly staff, bar and great food, all really nice, breakfast included in your nightly rate, great Gallo Pinto in the morning! Killer view all day from everywhere on the property. Not to far out of town, just enough... More

The hotel itself seems very nice on first impression. Rooms ain't extremely fancy but they are spacious. The bedding is only offered in double twin beds with no King choice (which sucks). The hotel is located beachfront, has pool and other amenities. The only thing that really bothered me was that the shower had lukewarm water for the first 5... More

We had a very positive experience at Agua Dulce. Our stay at Agua Dulce started months before we arrived. I emailed the hotel multiple times and Chris--the manager--answered all of my myriad of questions which ranged from, "Which rental company should I use?" and "What tours should I take with my family?" to "What restaurants do you recommend?" and "Do...

If you are looking for a great beach, great pool, quiet, super sweet spot to stay on the Osa Peninsula, this is the place to be. The staff & service were top notch - Ronnie, Harry & Marlon treated us like family and attended to our every need. I wanted to stay much longer! Be sure to borrow a bike... More

Beautiful location.... The location is truly unique, inthe middle of the rainforest and on Golfo Dulce. Very spacious and clean rooms. Excellent staff. Very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Great restaurant!! Jacuzzi tub to soak in after a long hike.... Great pool and beach.

The wooden porch with rocking chairs facing the gulf with a cup of coffee...fantastico! Relaxing...We saw macaws from out front porch! The gulf waters were warm clear and beautiful.... More

Stayed in Beach front room number one. Very big. Two rooms with double beds and a sitting room in between. After staying in jungle for four days loved the clean air conditioned rooms. Kids loved Iguanas outside, pool and beach across the street. Front desk set up tours and taxis for us. Dolphin and animal sanctuary tour (should not be... More

We very much appreciate the staff at Agua Dulce. They went out of their way to salvage a birthday dinner that I inadvertently sabotaged. Breakfasts were great, and the pool was enjoyable. The beach was lovely and solitary.

We chose this hotel after there was a big problem with the first place we booked. The Aqua Dulce was a nice place and a great relief after our disaster at Danta Lodge ( do not book that place, it was horrible). Aqua Dulce is a good location and the staff were extremely nice and helpful. We did a nice... More
