This hotel is such a great choice for your visit to Costa Rica! The location is fantastic for an isolated stay in which you can experience the true beauty of Costa Rica, as well as the people that run the hotel, who will provide you with anything you may need, and will connect you to the most amazing tours, hikes,...

Great place to rest from the noisy and busy New York City. Sun, beach, sand, sky.... All you need for rest and peace. The beach area is very clean, no strangers at the hotel area. Marina is best owner who helps her guests with all their needs.

We visited as a family of 4 and stayed in the larger house. The property and the beach is amazing. Nothing beats taking 3-4 dogs to the river estuary in the morning! Nobody on the beach at all, sunsets to die for and lots of little places to relax on the property. It is very suitable for people looking for... More

We stayed only one, very last night on our trip to Costa Rica and regretted not having more. Really peaceful place, hostess Marina is so welcoming. And the ocean - it is just magnificent at this place! If we had a chance, we would come back! audrone

My husband and I stayed at Tranquilidad for 2 nights. We loved it here! Marina was amazing and offered to pick us up from the Parrita Bus station and drive us to the hotel. IT was really nice of her to offer as it saved us some money. We bought grocery before we went to the hotel and really enjoyed... More

great place , had excellent time - definitely will be coming back Myself and few friends spend 5 days staying at the hotel . This is the best way to travel to the areas like that , where you can relax on the nature , swim in a pool or dip in the ocean

Like the other reviews say it seems like you'll never get there and it is a dirt road but when you arrive it really is a gem. We stayed in the house which was excellent. Viktor and Marina were super nice and helpful but the caretaker, Dennis is golden. He was very helpful and accommodating. You have a private black... More

We stayed there 6 nights. It is a very beautiful location. Being at the beach for the sunset is highly recommended. My mom stayed with us and it was great for her with not so great knees as there are few stairs on the property (only a couple up to the pool and a ladder in/out of the pool). Victor,... More

I have recently returned from a holiday to Costa Rica and stayed 6 nights at the Hotel La Tranquilidad at Playa Palo Seco, 10 km outside Parrita. Part of the beauty of the hotel is that it is a little bit off the beaten track and therefore it is a very peaceful and relaxing place to stay. Despite this it... More

If you are looking for a place that has this "away from civilization " taste, there it is. Once you got there , although it takes a while to drive to the place, you got sensation of a place you would like to stay forever . When you wake up in the morning you will have two friendly dogs and... More
