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

We were happy to return once again to Agua Dulce. It is perfect for our requirements. We love falling asleep to the sounds of the surf and waking up at sunrise and be able to walk miles, often without seeing another soul on a pristine beach in such a stunning location. When you are spending time at the beach, where... More

My family and I just returned from our wonderful trip to Costa Rica and we all enjoyed our stay at Agua Dulce. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful giving us information on activities and excursions we were interested in. Marlon, Harry, and Carlos (all staff members) were very nice and memorized all our names by the 2nd day.... More

We booked a four-night stay at Agua Dulce after reading the very favourable prior reviews, and were certainly not disappointed. The reviewer who recently gave it only two stars does not seem to have much experience of travel in the tropics, as the problems s/he listed are typical of most places we have stayed and are not unexpected (in other...
