My boyfriend and I visited Costa Rica for our first time over the Christmas holidays. Our first stop was Puerto Jimenez in the Osa Peninsula. We were nervous about our journey to this more rustic area of the country but our two night stay over Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at the Agua Dulce Resort made our journey and stay there a very pleasant one. We had emailed back and forth many times with Chris and even after confirming our room reservation, Chris continued to be available to provide advice and suggestions about the other areas of the country that we were interested in. Chris also set us up with a wonderfully knowledeable and experienced local tour guide, Vilmer, who took us to Corcovado National Park where we had a fabulous time.
In my opinion, Agua Dulce has the best location in all of Puerto Jimenez. The beach was an untouched natural gem, very beautiful and quiet. It was only a short drive to town and the beachfront location was unmatched.
The rooms were very nicely equipped and clean. We had a standard room beside the pool with two beds, a private bath, and access to a sitting room with a refrigerator. The pool and grounds are beautifully maintained and feel very safe and clean.
We enjoyed the restaurant very much. Jeff was not only an excellent chef but also a very friendly and helpful person. Although he keeps busy in the kitchen, he makes time to talk to the guests and get to know them and he was very accommodating to make us a breakfast at 5:45 am on Christmas Day before we head out on an all day excursion in the National Park.
Overall every staff member we interacted with, either management, kitchen staff, or servers, were very welcoming, friendly, and pleasant. We were sad to leave but happy to have such fond memories of our time there. I strongly recommend Agua Dulce for anyone wishing to visit the Osa Peninsula, whether adventure seekers (there's lots to do in the area) or poolside/beach lovers. We would go back in a heartbeat.
