It was my first time at Esterillos Oeste beach. I chose it to get away from the touristy Jaco where I have gone for 10 years before. As advertised, it is a small quiet beach location, very laid back.
I actually liked the beach here more than Jaco because it was cleaner, plenty big, and had way fewer people. I also found many more nice whole sea shells here. The waves were excellent for body surfing which I do...as well as for boards that I saw plenty of also.
The hotel itself is right on the beach, yet with it's own fenced area for security. I had the room overlooking the ocean, 2nd floor. It was comfortable in size for 1, 2, or 3 easily. The kitchen was complete...fridge, pots and pans and silverware, cooking utensils, etc. There are a couple stores less than 5 min walk away for all the food and drink basics.
I was not looking for fancy, expensive, so my evaluations are based on what I knew I was looking for.
I'll go again.
