“THIS RATING IS FOR THE SUNSETS ALONE!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

I did NOT stay at the actual hotel but would love to some day - just went to see the sunset with a few local friends - the beach (playa esterillos - playa bejuco) was in front of the hotel.
I just have to say that this beach had the best sunset I have ever seen in my life! I was awestruck and dazzled just standing there in the surf - I felt like I was in some sort of a childhood dream. You can see the entire dome of the sky and it was completely lit up from one end to the other and all around you. You can walk quite away out in the surf and look for shells as well. The beach was lined with tropical foliage and a few buildings - beautiful tropical atmosphere. MUST DO!!

Friendly people, clean, nice swimming pool, close to the beach. Breakfest was ok. The restaurant a little bit expensive, I would recomend the hotel. The beach is good for sufers - the waves are too big for swimming.

Excellent service with friendly people, really near to the beach.
The food is great (a little bit expensive, but excellent!)
Would be great some palms/umbrellas in the pool!
Bathroom is comfortable but kind of small

I would definitely go again!

The ocean is a block away and IT IS AWESOME!!!!! Quiet, huge, and lovely. Our stay here though very unusual showed the true quality of the owner and staff of this establishment. On the second day of our 2 day stay the power went out at the hotel. The staff was very forthcoming about the status of the fix though it was NOT coming back on. The owner called and had his manager take her cell phone to the guests that were by the pool so that he could personally talk with each guest and give his apologies and assure us everything in his power was being done to fix this problem. The power came back on and the dinner was on the hotel! Speaking of dinner the restaurant here was one of the best I have been to in all of Costa Rica. The chef is special and it is worth a trip here even if you do not stay here.

Room Tip: rooms on the first floor are great did not see the second floor rooms.

Clean, quiet, very nice swimming pool, very good restaurant, and most helpful staff. Came in very stressed out, tired, and a bit grouchy. They were so nice and helpful. There was a problem with one of the bedside lamps in the room and even though we arrived after 7:00 p.m. they had it fixed in less than an hour. The staff: Mildred, Carlo, Vanessa, and Sandra were great. They normally do not change money and they arranged to do so as we were taking the ferry to the Nicoya Peninsula on Sunday. The beach is lovely and it is only a short drive about 20K up to Jaco to shop and go out to lunch. We will be back.

We stayed here for 4 nights around Christmas. Great location. The restaurant is very good. Helpful staff. The room was a good size for a 4 pers family. Car is necessary to see more than just the hotel.

We stayed here for three nights. It is an excellent location for going to the beach and also for an easy trip to Manuel Antonio or to Carrera National Park. The room was spacious and had air conditioning which was nice. The hotel staff were absolutely wonderful with their kindness, helpfulness, and excellent service. Breakfast is a lot of food. We had dinner in the restaurant all three nights and all of our food was outstanding. We were at the beach early and other days until sunset. Never felt unsafe but we also took very little with us. Even left the room key at the front desk of the hotel. The beach was never crowded and the water felt great. At low tide, it is quite a stretch of empty beach. Again, the staff were so nice. We would highly recommend and return.
