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...

ok, let me say from the start that we liked this hotel. But any glowing review just shows that it was written by someone with little experience. So we gave it two stars to bring a dose of reality to the picture. This hotel bills itself as "affordable luxury," but they are not even close to ANY luxury. Here are... More

We just ended a wonderful 10 night stay at Agua Dulce Resort in Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica. We were unsure of going to a place that was so rural/quiet and spending all of our time in one location, but we could not have made a better choice. The location was fabulous with both a beautiful beach on one side and... 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
