It is a great place to rest, nature all around, and a peaceful place. Just a few hours driving from San José and away from crowd. Just be sure to bring something in case you want to have a drink after the restaurant closing time. It closes early.

Clandestino beach resort was amazing. We were looking for a quiet and comfortable place to stay with our little children (2,5 years & 4 months) and Clandestino was everything we hoped for and more. The rooms were the most beautiful ones we had in Costa Rica. Clandestino is located right in front of the beach, so my husband could surf... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our anniversary. It was absolutely beautiful! The rooms were very clean and spacious. I loved the stone shower. The staff was very friendly. And the beach was so incredibly soft! We walked about a mile up the beach one evening right before sunset and didn't see another person. The... More

When we arrived at Clandestino, late at night with two kids in tow, I was disappointed that it was so far from Quepos and Manuel Antonio, where I'd expected to spend a lot of my time. But that turned into the biggest bonus. Clandestino is on the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica--black sand, beautiful ocean, and never more than... More

You can't get any closer to the beach than Clandestino! The setting is rustic and simple but quite comfortable. The staff and food are very good -- not 5 Star -- but worth the money. I would recommend this hotel for a couple seeking a very quiet get-away.
