Last week I had a wonderful and relaxing stay at this small garden hotel. Ed and Amelia made sure that everything was perfect and were always around to give guidance about the local community. The room was great, comfortable bed and we quite enjoyed the restaurant. These owners care about the Tambor community and didn't hesitate to recommend other restaurants... More

Spent a wonderful vacation at the Costa Coral this January 2016 and with the help of Ed and Amelia saw a little bit of the real Tico life. We were able to rent a dune buggy and went on adventures exploring off road, neighbouring beaches and towns. We loved the romantic setting of our room and we saw hummingbirds right... More

I stayed at the Costa Coral from 02 Jan - 06 Jan 16 and I can honestly say that this hotel was awesome. From the managers who are from Aurora Cananda to the staff who always greeted you with a smile.

We spent 5 days here and found it very convenient for touring around the South Nicoya peninsula. The hotel was very clean and staff friendly and personable. The pool area is gorgeous and we found it a great place to relax after an excursion or just to hang out for a morning or afternoon. Amelia and Ed have done a... More

We've thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay here in the Hotel Costa Coral. The new managers, Ed and Amelia, are doing a really great job! The food is excellent. The grounds are lush and well-tended. Wonderful to be here again.

We stayed at this Hotel for 4 nights and had a great stay. Very clean, spacious and bright rooms. Bedroom, Living Room (with couch that folds into a double bed) and bathroom. We overlooked the beautiful gardens with pool and water fall feature. Quiet, private and the hosts were very welcoming and freindly.
