Loved this place! Low-key, comfortable, shady, nice hammocks to hang out on. An array of tables to sit at and eat, spaced to allow for privacy. And most importantly - a communal kitchen (and clean, too). The whole place felt laid-back, yet grounded. Despite the communal kitchen, this did not feel like a youth hostel or party spot, which we... More

The Italian guys are great. Always making sure you have whatever you need, or helping you out with any questions you may have. They speak Spanish, English, and Italian, make incredible food, and are a lovely bunch of happy guys! Good location to the beach, and close to laluna for dinner at sunset! Would go back for sure :)

This is a very small hotel - five rooms for the public, I think. The Italian manager and his Costa Rican girl friend do almost everything, although there was an Italian chef staying and working there as well. Everybody was extremely nice and helpful. The rooms are very comfortable and all open onto a patio and garden that are very... More

A very nice place to stay! Far away from the hippie-town of "Guionnes". A 5 minutes walk away from the beach and another 10-15 minutes to the beach of Guionnes which is a very nice place for surfing. The owners are very helpful in every situation, know alot about the area and the things to do around. Also the restaurant... More

This tiny hotel is located at the end of an incredibly bumpy, rutted road. It took us almost an hour to go the 14 miles separating the hotel from the paved roads, but boy was it worth it! The two Italian guys that run the place make you feel totally at home. This remote area actually has pretty much everything... More

I cant speak to the hotel, but the restaurant was very good. We were made to feel very welcome and I felt as though we were dining in an authentic Italian home. Pasta Carbonara and the Iced Coffee were amazing!

We stayed here for two nights with our 5 year old, and while we wanted to love it, the hotel certainly is for other clientele than families. Right off the top - there is no restaurant. They haven't removed this from their website or their literature, but there is tape over the sign out front and the kitchen has been... More

I stayed at Refugio del Sol for one night while travelling along the Costa Rican coast. Playa Pelada is a sleepy village that can only be reached through a dirt road. And it has one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. Refugio del Sol is a small and unusual hotel with just 5 rooms embedded in beautiful... More
