The first impression I had when I arrived in this hotel was how well the gardens were maintained. Everything looks green and properly cut, flowers everywhere, many tall trees and a nicely warm environment. Usually, when gardens are properly cared, the rest of the location follows. And for this small hotel this seems to work just fine. They gave me... More

My wife and I and adult daughter had a great time at Casa Conde del Mar over Christmas. We were looking for a place to just relax at the beach and we found it here. The hotel has only about 20 rooms, is on Playa Panama and is set back behind trees from the beach. Even when full at Christmas... More

The staff is incredibly friendly, loved that they bothered to remember your name and room number. The rooms were pretty. The pool is nice but needed some cleaning. The beach is relaxing and it feels very natural as locals often visit the same beach, doesn't feel so touristy, which I like. The sand is gray but the water is clear,... More

We stayed at this resort for two nights in early December 2012 and it was very relaxing! Not too many other couples/groups were there so it was nice and quiet. When we left on Saturday I could tell it was going to get more busy over the weekend, however. The rooms were very well maintained and we had lots of... More

Pool is awesome. Beach is okay... it's gray sand. Water was warm and calm December 22 to 26, 2012. Not blue however.....it's brownish. Rooms need a little help. They are very dark even during the day because there are not enough lights. The bath/toilet/shower/sink all need updating. The linens and curtains also need to be updated. If you don't like... More

This resort was clean and the staff friendly. It's a beautiful property that is right on the beach, which was very clean. Our room was big, with cable TV and an ac/heater. Our only disappointment was with the restaurant, which could have been a little better.

My wife and two 8 yr olds just left 5 days at Casa Conde. Loved it. The best: their pools area is large and shallow enough(actually there are tow adjoining pools...one is 2 ft deep and the other goes from 3 ft to about 5 feet...and they are both very good size!), plus there's a waterfall they can jump from!...

We had high hopes for this hotel! My husband and I have traveled to Costa Rica many times over the last five years and loved every minute of it. Unfortunately, it was not a good experience at Casa Conde del Mar. We booked a Junior Suite with Jacuzzi for a fairly high rate during the peak season and prepaid the... More

We stayed just one night before our resort could take us. It was one of the most pleasant experiences we had in our 12 days in Costa Rica. We were treated like queens, and we had the place virtually to ourselves. The most incredible meal of fresh red snapper specially prepared by the chef, and hours of relaxing by the... More
