Although we were lucky enough to have local free accommodations, my wife and I (along with our rambunctious toddler) spent a good deal of time at the Sandpiper during our recent vacation. As others have said, the Green Room restaurant serves the freshest and most delicious food in Playa Hermosa (try the fish tacos!), and the relaxed vibe and beautiful beach view simply can't be beat. Everyone at the Sandpiper exemplifies that famed Tico generosity — Greg, the owner, is an incredibly nice guy, and the Green Room's Raquel and Kip are very accommodating and gracious hosts. The food is all cooked to order, so it takes a little longer, but the wait is definitely worth it. Besides, the leisurely pace just gives you more time to relax in the two available hammocks and watch the huge waves roll in. Pura vida!
