My wife and I had the opportunity to travel to Costa Rica for a friend's wedding over the first weekend of December in 2012. We had been very tired after a long day of traveling from the east coast, and we arrived to this wonderful location, where a very professional, friendly staff assisted us with all our needs. We arrived just in time to see the sunset, along with a fantastic dinner at the outdoor restaurant/bar. There is no better view of Playa Carrillo, than at Hotel Guanamar, and all of the rooms share this view as well. I highly reccoment the ocean view suites, as they sit higher and give you a more panoramic view.
The location has everything you need on premise. Quality food, bar service, pool, and a short walk to the beach, local shops and restaurants. Hotel Guanamar is affordable, safe, and met all of our expectaions. Marianela and Laura at the front desk knew us by name, and were always available to assist us with questions, or set up an excersion for fishing, horseback riding, or zip-lining. They were amazing!!
The manager Milagro, along with the entire staff in the restaurant were available at all times, and very helpful and friendly. We plan on returning soon, as 5 days was not nearly enough time in paradise. Perfect for families, couples, or a retreat.
