“very nice friendly motel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

I'm a little late on my review. Stayed for a week at the Casa Conte Del Mar in May of 2013 Right before the start of the rainy season. Hotel was maybe a 1/3 full, if you want to have a place that's quiet and no crowds this is your place! Food service was a little slow but who cares? your on vacation to relax, even though they had a 10% tip automatically figured in your bill I still tipped everybody extra. on 2nd night after dinner went to the chef and give him a tip as well. The rest of the week when we sat down the waiter said no menu for you chef made something special tonight. They are a little more low keyed not in a hurry as most of us are today, which is a nice change. little pricey if you take a taxi anywhere. nearest town about 15 mins away. would stay here again in the future

My wife got a deal on four days at a resort, so we spent four days at Casa Conde to make the flights work. Casa Conde turned out to the better resort by far. The room was clean, with lots of tile and a lovely wood ceiling with a window. The resort layout keeps vehicles on one side of the main building, so the noise level at the cabins is minimal. The groundskeepers even use rakes and brooms instead of blowers! The beach is right there, no shuttle required, and very uncrowded. There are tidal rocks to snorkel at high tide, or photograph at low tide. The food at the restaurant was quite reasonable and tasty. It is about 20 minutes from the airport and farther to various attractions. The biggest downside was some guest's yapping dog one morning. Overall, though, it was a quiet respite to enjoy the beauty of the area.

We stayed here in July, 2014. Very much worth the $100 / night we paid. If you're looking for a calm and peaceful place to stay this is a good choice. The grounds are very clean. The staff was professional and accommodating. Nice relaxing place to stay.

Room Tip: Any room overlooking the main pool are nice. These are all considered "beach front" and m...

Loved the location (tropical plants), room and restaurant. Beautiful beach. Waking up to howler monkeys and birds is great. Staff was very courteous and even provided a boxed breakfast for us to take with us because we had to check out before the restaurant opened. If you love walking on the beach, shelling, snorkeling or swimming and watching beautiful sunsets, this is the place. It was very reasonably priced and included breakfast. Easy drive to Liberia. They also coordinated/booked excursions.

Room Tip: Standard suite was great.

If you want complete quiet, this place is for you! It is across the street from the Mangrove, and not much else around. You'll need to drive to Coco Beach for dinner/shopping. It's not far though, about 15 minutes and the road is paved and smooth.
Although we were there in the off season, still seemed overly dead there. Staff not enthusiastic.
Rooms were nice, grounds well kept, Pool was nice. It is surrounded by trees, so stuff falls in it. I can understand why it is hard to keep clean. Beach very close. A mix of black sand. A few activity vendors hang out and will try to get you to go on an excursion.
If you are a family of five, you have to rent two rooms. No hide a beds. Service in the restaurant is slow, which is odd when no one else is there!

If you are looking for a peaceful resort, Hotel Casa Conde del Mar is a great place to escape and relax. The hotel built in 2004 is located on the beautiful Gulf of Papagayo only 12 miles from the Liberia International Airport. The variety of facilities available at the hotel and its stunning setting means tourists don’t have to decide between luxury, relaxation and keeping busy.

Built in 2004, this destination is eco-friendly and a perfect getaway. There are 26 rooms with all the amenities you could imagine while on vacation. There are various accommodation choices including standard and deluxe rooms as well as junior suites. All of the rooms have tile flooring, wood ceilings and a charming private patio just right for enjoying the evening sunset. Free WIFI in all rooms will allow you to stay in touch on vacation if you want to do so. If you are looking for an especially spectacular experience, book a deluxe mini suite or junior suite with garden views and in room Jacuzzis.

Hotel Casa Conde del Mar can be found on Panama Beach. This stunning beach where salt and pepper sands meet the sparkling blue Pacific Ocean is great for swimming, snorkeling and fishing. There is a lot of shade on the beach from the Tamarind trees that line the shore. You can even get a relaxing massage on the beach. If you want to have some fun, get a group together and play a round of beach volleyball. The pool is also worth taking a dip in to cool off. The hotel is equipped with a small conference room for business activities and a state of the art fitness center for guests who want to keep up their exercise routine while on vacation.

The Gulf of Papagayo is known for being one of the most beautiful vacation spots because of its natural beauty and the many activities available in the area. If you want to stay active on your trip there are a number of things that you can do both on the property and off. Take one of the hotel’s complimentary bicycles for a tour of the local roads. Hiking trails leave from the Hotel Casa Conde del Mar and allow you to explore the surrounding rainforest. To stay on the water, there are motorboats, sailboats, kayaks and WaveRunners for rent from the hotel.

Hotel Casa Conde del Mar is easily accessible on the Gulf of Papagayo. There are lots of services close by that you can visit if you need anything that is not available at the hotel. Coco Beach is one of the closest town centers to the hotel. Here you can find pharmacies, supermarkets, restaurants, tours and much more. This beach is another great place to see the evening sunset. The Marina Papagayo and Papagayo Golf and Country Club are also both less than 7 miles away. Here you can enjoy an afternoon golfing session or a morning sport-fishing trip.

Hotel Casa Conde del Mar is the perfect escape from a busy life. It is a great place to stay whether you only want a few nights away or a whole week of activities and gorgeous views.

Enjoyed the flora and closeness of the ocean. The beach is a black sandy one.
You definately need a car as this resort is a little remote,no entertainment but it is quite& restfull.
The staff made you feel welcome.
There are many iguanas and some howler monkeys to entertain you as you relax by the pool or on the front porch
The food is average,small portions& a bit pricey.Breakfasts are good.
It is only 15 min from the Liberia International airport on Panama beach which still remains undeveloped(a little hidden gem ) I'd. Stay again .
