My husband and I were traveling by day in our car and staying in random hotels along our route. We happened along the Clandestino Resort by chance, and wish we would have booked the whole week there! The rooms (cabanas) were comfortable, well appointed, and very romantic. The restaurant/bar was beautiful, with great food and staff. The beach was not... More

My husband and I came here for the first two nights of our honeymoon. We had a rental car which made the remote location not an issue for us but instead a positive aspect. We usually had the beach, pool, and restaurant to ourselves! (This could be in part due to the time of year we went, but the place... More

We arrived at Clandestino for 5 nights arriving March 14th (sorry about the delay in writing Diane!). We were so impressed on arrival, the resort is right on the Playa Palo Seco. A beautiful palm lined beach that goes on for miles. The road to this resort is not that bad, most of it along the ocean. We had a... More

The hotel is really nice, the rooms very comfortable. We had one issue with the room and the staff was very helpful on helping change rooms with no trouble. Food and the pool was good. The only thing that I did not like very much was the location. It was very far from the main road and at night was... More

The main resort building is amazing.... the pool seemed nice as well. The resort is on the beach... My problem is that I don't like to be lied to in order to "seem" like they are offering a higher end product than they really are. We live in Costa Rica and know our fish.. we asked the waiter what was... More

Hello Sir, Thanks for writing a review on TripAdvisor You did not stayed at our hotel, you just came to eat. Thanks for your comment about the hotel anyway... Your indictment about sailfish is completely false. We always buy our fish at the official fish shop "Martec" in Quepos ... they have approved veterinarians to ensure the quality of the... More

My husband and I stayed at Clandestino Beach Resort at the beginning of September 2014. Our stay was absolutely amazing! Driving down the road that leads you to Clandestino makes you feel like you are tucked away in a secluded area, it was very private. When we arrived we were able to find parking easily (lots of spots) and then... More

I have just stayed at the Clandestino Beach Resort for my honeymoon and so glad we chose this place to stay. The resort is well off the beaten track and so tranquil and beautiful. It doesn't have the touristy feel which made it so relaxing. The location is incredible: set on miles of beautiful beach which can be seen from... More

My wife and I recently returned from this resort after a weeks stay. We found the grounds and the room to be spotless and the location was very secluded. The beaches here were amongst the most beautiful we have ever experienced and we travel throughout the Caribbean. The area is so secluded that in 4 days on the beach we... More
