If you dream of surfing in Costa Rica this is the spot to stay! The Sandpiper is right on the sand away from it all with black sand beach and 80 degree water. Wake up to the sounds of the jungle and the crashing waves. A short walk down to the beach and you are at a surfing paradise. My... More

This Hotel came highly recommended by a co worker, and after several months We decided to check it out for ourselves. We were looking for a quaint quiet place to get away from it all, and that's exactly what we got and more. The owner Greg picked us up at the airport in San Jose and proved to be a... More

This place is well located. It has comfortable rooms and attention is splendid. However, the second time I went, the roof bike racks were stolen from my car, while parked in the property. All I got for a loss of more than $1000 were some sorry words.

Strange to post this 7 months after it happened..You must be out buying new bicycle racks for your car & want to take it out on me..When this happened, we both felt bad, but you said you SHOULD have bought the locks with the rack, because this model of racks they steal a lot! And if a thief can take... More

The best thing about the Sandpiper is it's location. Right on the beach and not in Jaco! The black sand beach (Playa Hermosa) is gorgeous. You you can swim, relax, and watch the surfers. The rooms are clean and very spacious. The grounds were nice, with hammocks, a ping pong table and small pool. Greg was very helpful and steered... More

We met Greg (the owner) on the beach while he was playing fetch with his dog Cody. He was extremely nice. After staying one night at a hotel with really loud music blaring from the bar next door we moved down to the Sandpiper. Greg was an excellent host and gave us a good rate ont he room. The hotel...

The Sandpiper Inn is absolutely fabulous and a must stay/see location while in Costa Rica. We were fortunate enough to stay here one night last week & it was by far our favorite beach day in Costa Rica! Greg, the owner, is more than accommodating. He is so friendly and gave us great advice about our travels, even after our... More

Perfect location right on the beach! Clean and quiet too. AC is a huge plus! My boyfriend and I stayed here on our first leg of our trip. I emailed Greg and he got back to me right away and even got us in contact with someone to transport us from the airport. On our way out we even came... More

The perfect place to totally unwind and enjoy the warmth of the sun, away from the hustle (by Costa Rica standards) of nearby Jaco. Iguanas stroll the walkways and hang out next to the pool. Macaws visit the property's trees. The waves are best for experienced surfers. Plenty of places to eat and drink within walking distance. Proprietor Greg Miller... More

This hotel is a surfer's dream! If you don't surf, it's also great. The owner is very helpful and willing to make your experience the best. He has great knowledge of the area and has the ability to transport you to Jaco Beach. There are several restaurants within walking distance, so there is no need to drive around once you... More
