I cannot thank the Delfin hotel enough for making my badly needed vacation in paradise such a wonderful experience. Having just got off the plane from New York with a forced layover on rout I was not only totally stressed but fit to be tied by the bad way the airlines handled things. So, arriving at the hotel anything would have set me off. However, arriving at the Delfin Hotel in the spacious lobby with the stunning view of palms and the beautiful blue Pacific only steps away all was forgotten. With the ocean just outside, I was in my trunks and on the sand within five minutes. The airline trauma was history and I was living in the present. Thank you, thank you, thank you Hotel Delfin this was better than any fancy three hundred dollar spa visit could ever be. I finished off my swim and made it to the outdoor bar to experience a tropical drink. The bar tender had a huge smile which was quite infectious and suggested her specialty, a frosty banana drink that caught everyone’s eye and then everyone was ordering them. Actually, I managed to get the recipe and now making them at home here in stress headquarters NEW YORK CITY. So, sipping my frosty drink with my eyes closed I’m back at the Delfin. I cannot recommend this hotel more highly. I have traveled all over the world and stayed in the best of the best from Geneva to Bangkok. The Delfin hotel might not be a five star hotel but that is part of the charm of the place. I actually don’t care too much about hotels going off the charts with stars because they then become too sterile with nothing but artificial smiles after your money. The staff at the Delfin are genuine happy local Ticos (what Costa Ricans call themselves) that smile simply because they are happy and that makes you happy to be around them. The restaurant isn’t serving costly over done cuisine but simple tasty food that I enjoy eating and can go to bed at night without heartburn. All in all the hotel is a wonderful place to shed months of stress. Oh, one other thing, the hotel is just enough away from all the vacationers that you’ll feel totally removed from tourist central yet only twenty to sixty minutes away from all that Costa Rica is famous for from zip lining to bar hopping. Another thing, I just managed to sit next to one of the owners at the bar and he said they just completed a massive renovation, redecorating job and got rid of the old management with new and now operating like a fine tuned engine. Well, all I can say whatever they are doing keep doing it because it works. The place has location, location, location and the staff could not be nicer. I can say being a picky New Yorker the place passed the test and I love it and already planning my next trip back to paradise. I must say though I did notice only but a few negative things said about the staff with the old hotel but the owner, that I met assured me that with the new management it’s all been taken care of. Well, all I can say is it passed my test and you know what they say about New Yorkers, they can be difficult but when they like something they rave about it. So, it’s got to be good. It passed my test.
