“A place in Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We found La Posada Bed & Breakfast by chance, and what a find it was. The home is beautiful, the owners pay attention to detail, it is cool and airy. The view of the bay is breath taking and the wild life around the place abundant. They have a fabulous veranda with lovely and comfortable rocking chairs, featuring a million dollar view of the Carrillo beach.
It is only a few walking minutes from an animal sanctuary where you can visit lots of native species.
You reach the lovely palm tree lined beach within 5 walking minutes and even spot alligators below the bridge...
There are lots of different restaurants nearby.
Teo and Leo are a wonderful couple. They are very helpful and personable, and they make you feel at home and part of their family. Breakfast is very tasty!
There is a protected beach about 30 minutes away, where sea turtles lay their eggs. We did a tour with them and learned a lot about the protection of turtles and other wild life in Costa Rica.

We often think back to our stay at La Posada and we will be back some day. Promise!

We stayed at the la posada unexpectedly and cannot say enough about the comfort,food and the hosts. We were at a wedding and we were able to entertain after the beach nuptials with my family. Teo was a fabulous host, was warm and kept us laughing. The view was beautiful , rooms comfortable, grounds well kept and a memorable 6 nights in playa Carrillo. It made the marriage of my son and new daughter in law extra special.

A perfect place to relax, with friendly and helpful hotel owners. Clean room and a big terrace with the most beautiful view of the ocean and the sunset.

A good price for a good room with AC, hot water, breakfast included and a relaxed atmosphere.

We stayed 2 nights at La Posada. We had an ocean view room (#1). It was simple but spacious and clean. Breakfast were casada, scramble eggs, toasts, fresh fruits, juice and coffee served on the deck overlooking the ocean with the company of hummingbirds and iguanas. We saw howler monkeys from our balcony, heard iguanas crawling on the roof. Teo was a great host. We'll definitely stay here again if we return to Playa Carillo!

We stayed one night at La Posada B&B. It is a lovely home with a great view of Playa Corilla, and nice sunsets. Our room was a bit stuffy and small with rough furniture but the main house and deck was very comfortable and inviting.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that faces the valley/water with a private deck.
