First time to Costa Rica. Visited there with my girlfriend for 5 nights, 4 days. There were three qualities that really stood out about the hotel: 1) the people at the front desk were incredibly helpful for coordinating activities and other things for us: surfing, a tour of the nature reserve, dinners, our ATV, and transportation to the airport; 2)...

Walking distance to the beach, and other restaurants and supermarket. I would love to come... More

Hands downs, this is the best boutique hotel on the island! Trust me, our group initially booked a stay further up the hill and it turned into a 24hr nightmare! (i.e. Flee bites, roaches, animal hair on the beds, rude staff...the list goes on). While trying to escape the nightmare, our group walked past Nautilus hotel and decided to have... More
