The Costa del Sol is a relaxed and very rustic sort of beach chic, so you have to bear that in mind when coming here.
The area around it seems a little sketchy-ish, but the hotel itself is quite lovely indeed.
The room were sort of like a cross between a treehouse and a yurt, but fun and very comfortable.
The pool was really pretty and the beach was right in front of you.
This is not a place that you would go for the amenities however. The wifi was spotty at best, didn't work at all actually in the rooms (I like to swing in my hammock which online which was not to be). And the food was just OK I'd say. Actually, the lobster spaghetti was great, but there was other stuff that wasn't so good.
And, there were dogs barking all night and other things that you get from sort of being out in the country. So just plan on that, and you'll be OK.
One thing we did get to do which was amazing was to release the endangered sea turtles to the ocean. I've always wanted to do that and it was so very cool.
We also went paddleboarding at the Bahia del Sol in the estuary, but it was sort of a lucky find since Tortuga Village had never heard of it, and it was only about five minutes away.
Just do your homework and you'll have a great time.
