Extremely helpful staff, I'm talking i lost my hair tie swimming in the ocean a few days prior and the gentleman who works the front desk literally ran to his house in the rain to get me one! It was pouring down rain the two days we were there and had there not been such a beautiful view from the... More

Best velue for money by far... we had a double bed room, the price was the avarage price in Costa-rica but the quality was far more than the avarage. Very highly invested rooms, hot water in shower, clean and equipped kitchen . Great smiley service!

We ended up at this hotel after being confronted by serveral vendors after stepping off the night bus. We were tired and travel weary and the woman we encountered kept haggling the price until we agreed to go with her. We ended up in the bottom floor apartment which was more space than we needed but had its own kitchen,... More

Had a great stay here, friendly and helpful staff helped us book canopy tours and activities at a discount. Very clean rooms with private bathrooms, excellent kitchens, and amazing views from the nice enclosed deck. Stayed all over costa rica for 3 weeks and this was one of our favorite places and was very affordable.

We were originally booked at another hotel which wasn't good at all. So we switched to Cabinas Vista al Golfo at the last minute. It was a fantastic choice... for $50 a night, we got a two-bedroom suite with kitchen and a balcony overlooking Santa Elena with views all the way to the bay. We would definitely stay here again....

We stayed in one of the apartments that Vista Al Golfo offers. The room was great. We had our own kitchen, a huge bedroom with king size bed, great bathroom with hot hot showers, and a terrace view over the valley and forests. Waking up every morning to the clouds rolling over the hills was spectacular. The included breakfast was... More

These cabinas are the best spot for booking tours, resting up before adventure, cooking meals in the cloud forest and meeting people from all over the world. The owner met us at the bus stop and the personal service didn't stop there. We had a truly wonderful time relaxing in the kitchen and dining areas due to the glass enclosures... More

We absolutely love this place. The owner is extremely nice. She met us at the bus stop and walked us back to the cabinas. Her son quickly checked us in knowing that we were a bit tired from the 5hr bus ride. The room was nice and clean. This place has a great little kitchen with an amazing view. We... More
