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

My girlfriend and I just got back from a week long vacation at the Sandpiper. The owner, Greg, could not have been more helpful in making our experience all that it was. He was very attentive to our needs and questions , and kept us entertained for hours with stories and good conversation. He is a genuine host, and just... More

There is no better spot to stay in Hermosa. The hotel is private, intimate and comfortable. The outdoor areas and the pool are great...my kids had an absolute blast. It's such a great experience because you get to meet and engage with the other guests...we made some great new friends. Our room was perfect, and Greg was the perfect host.... More

I have been in the hotel twice and I love the place. It' super private but at the same time has a bunch of good places to eat within walking distance and Jaco is very close so you can party hard at night if you want to too. I usually come down for base training during the cold months in... More
