We stayed at Agua Dulce, about 200m down the beach, rather than at Pearl of the Osa. We were discouraged by Trip Advisor reviews complaining about the noise. Those reviews were unfounded.
We ate at Pearl of the Osa every night. The restaurant is very good and even has two Costa Rican micro brews on draft. The open-air restaurant faces the beach and is delightfully quiet (except on Friday night). The kitchen closes about 8PM and only we and the bartender were there.
The rooms are above the restaurant. The locals gather on Friday nights for pasta and salsa dancing -- it's fun to watch. This is, of course, noisy...but it's only Friday nights.
It's a small place in a secluded setting just back from the beach. There is a clear view of the beach from the restaurant and the front rooms.
Pearl of the Osa is now known as the Iguana Lodge Club Rooms. It is part of neighboring (expensive) Iguana Lodge and is under their management.
