Unfortunately my friend`s money disappeared from his wallet (USD 150.00) and for coincidence it happened when the electricity was down. The general manager has decided to contribute to our loss giving us a discount in amount of USD 75.00 (50%) on the check out. It is our strong feeling that the money was stolen by someone of the staff. The... More

Stopped here over night while biking the Nicoya Peninsula. Loved it so much I plan on coming back with the wife and kids. Very friendly staff, clean spacious rooms, and excellent Pizza. $85 for 3 people for one night. They do have a pool and the beach is a couple minutes walk away.

I stopped here with my family for dinner at the recommendation of a local. Some of the best pizza I have ever tasted! Great service. My wife had the pesto pasta and it was equally as good as the pizza. I would highly recommend this stop after a long day at the beach.

Refreshing clean pool. Kitchenette with all needed suplies. Good food at the restaunt. Just 15min away from Tamarindo and other nearby beaches So we were able to visit lots of places and return at night. It is not that close from the beach (about 700mts away)but because of this we got a nice place for a lower price. Avellanas It's... More

I've been there just few days but we felt at home. Great atmosphere, quite clean accommodations, gentle crew, easy to get Avellanas parking. Perfect getaway to stay close to the southern spots. Already planning to be back!

I rarely feel the urge to write reviews, but being that this is one of the worst places I have ever stayed at, I feel compelled to tell others to stay away. First of all, it advertises on its website that, "our surf camp in Playa Avellanas is a boutique surf hotel located 3 minutes from the beach entrance." Yes,... More

Showed up here for a reserved few nights in Avellanas. Not anywhere to park upon arrival, lot was full. Blocked some folks in and talked to the staff. They didn't know we were coming, despite providing them our confirmation papers via email previously. They worked to clean a room quickly to accomodate us, and were very apologetic. Had dinner in...

We wish we could say the same nice things about this little hotel as the other reviewers, and certainly the owners are friendly, but we arrived yesterday afternoon to find the hotel restaurant/bar are in full construction, with a loud air compressor going, hammering and sawing of metal (ouch!).
