We stayed at Hotel Fenix for our last three nights in Costa Rica. It was our first time out of the country with kids ( boys age 5 and 8), and the proximity from the beach to the pool to the bodega (cooler of adult and kid friendly beverages) was ideal. Phyllis and her staff did everything they could to make us at home. She ordered pizza for us the first night, booked tours for zip lining and kayaking. The kids made instant friends with the room next to us, and spent hours combing the beach for hermit crabs. It was a memorable experience we will never forget. The short walk to town along the beach took about 15 minutes. Water was warm and safe for kids.
