“Great Beach Find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We really loved our stay at this hotel. It is not for everyone, especially if you are high maintenance, but we thought it was wonderful. The hotel and the grounds are nicely maintained and very clean. The rooms are large, clean, but have not changed much probably from the 1970's. So we found it kind of funky. The hotel is a very short walk down the road to a beautiful secluded beach. The ocean was warm and the kids had a great time in the waves. The pool at the hotel was a great place to return to after the beach. The breakfast by the pool was very good. We had dinner at the restaurant both nights of our stay and thought the food was good and reasonable. The owner and the other hotel employees were wonderful and very helpful. We had no complaints at all and the price was right.

I spent two nights in April here and enjoyed my stay. The hotel is very small, but has great food and is very close to the beach. The beach in this area is very long with a nice surf. The accommodations at hotel are very good, clean and well kept. The food is excellent.

Stayed for four nights in March at the end of a two week fantastic tour around the country birdwatching. Mildred was very friendly and welcoming at reception. The only negatives were the fact that there was nowhere to relax without being burnt as there are no umbrellas or parasols over the sunbeds and no shade anywhere until about 4.00pm.The food was good but the lunch menu was the same as the evening menu. Not everybody wants a big meal at lunchtime.Maybe lighter snacks for lunch? Take a torch, the bathrooms are black tiled, I could not see much at all, ditto retaurant, the lighting is so low I could not see what I was eating. Quiet area, good for birding but not swimming. The cleaner leaves the room doors open for quite a long time hence geckos. mosquitoes etc. in the rooms.

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.
