“Great Service and Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

We were staying in the EcoVida rental houses right up the street, and ate all our meals at the hotel restaurant. In the morning, we brought fresh fruit, which the staff cut up for us and served us on a platter. We went fishing, brought the fresh mackeral filets to the chef, and they cooked it for us and stored the remainder for future meals. The food is fantastic, and you have to try the creamy sopa de mariscos (seafood chowder)! The staff was unbelievably helpful and really went out of their way for us, especially Mildred the day manager and Carlos, who arranged the fishing.
The beach was always beautiful and never crowded.

Myself and 12 other guys from my church stayed at Hotel Playa Bejuco for the fourth year in a row for 8 days. We were there for a mission trip providing a surf camp to local kids in Jaco, working with Iglesia de Radical in Jaco and using this hotel as our base of operations. The staff is tremendous. As usual Matilda, Carlos, Fraynor and Sandra provided great service. The food (breakfast) was excellent and very fresh. We had dinner there one night and it was excellent. The rooms are very spacious with good air conditioners. Housekeeping did a great job and the entire property is kept very clean and up to date.

We continue to stay at Hotel Playa Bejuco because of it's secluded nature and it's consistent accommodations and service. We love the pool, but wish the Jacuzzi was a hot tub. I look forward to returning next May for our Mission Trip for the fifth year in a row while staying at the Hotel Playa Bejuco. God Bless....

Room Tip: I have stayed in rooms 12, 15 and 20. All have upstairs lofts. These are great rooms with good worki...

We loved our stay! We stayed for 6 nights with our 16 and 13 year old teens. The room was nice and large, our 13 year old loved the loft bed. The AC worked great and the room was very nice clean. Breakfast was Awesome! We ate dinner a few times at the restaurant and loved all the food, especially the seafood spaghetti! The pool was wonderful after long days at the beach. The beach was the best! Lots of body surfing and miles of sand. You are very secluded, which is nice, but we are glad we rented a car and explored Manuel Antonio and Jaco too. All the staff were very friendly but Big Thank You to Mildred for all the info and help renting a car and planning outings.

Before start is good to make a point that this hotel is located in an almost virgin beach, where the tourism is not very developed. The day after we arrived we went to a market to buy a cooler for our beverages (hotel was providing the ice), small chairs and some food to take to the beach. Playa Bejuco is a great beach for surfing and it was great to laid down there, below a tree or in the sand.
With this said, I considered Playa Bejuco hotel a very decent hotel, with great staff and very nice quality service. Breakfast was very good and the hotel restaurant was good as well. The menu had lots of options and meals were tasteful.
The staff was always willing to provide the best service and even they being a simple hotel we felt little spoiled.
Our room was large with a queen bed. The bathroom wasn't very "smart". There was no curtains in the shower and after we showered the floor would be soaked with water.
One day our AC stopped working and they had to bring a person from a nearby town to fix it in the evening. Unfortunately, they didn't had any other available room to accommodate us but they handled very well by paying for our dinner and drinks. It took more than we or they were expecting to have the AC fixed and we had to wait by the pool. But they were being so kind to us that we couldn't feel any frustration about that.
By the way, the pool is great!

Dee and I wanted to thank everyone for making of special day amazing. We could not have asked for a better place to have our destination wedding on the beach. The attention to detail was spot on. All of our guest had nothing but complements for us on the whole experience. They praised the friendliness of the staff, food quality, location, and value for money. We look forward to coming back soon and you will have a special delivery in January we hope you enjoy.

Nice (fairly new) hotel, friendly and helpful staff. Very efficient in their service. Huge rooms, modern and clean with airco and safe. Pool is great, though gets busy at weekends, however beach closeby. Beach gorgeous, great place for surfers. Breakfast wide variety of choices. Restaurant is worth the money. Internet terminals unfortunately broken, but we were then allowed to use hotel staff computer. Free parking. Need rental car, or you will be stuck at the hotel.

Always enjoy staying at Hotel Playa Bejuco. The staff is unbeleivable, the rooms are clean, the food is great. Less than a block to the beach, solitude, a perfect getaway. I have stayed here three times and it gets better each time. This is the only place you should stay in the Esterillos area.
