Great little place off the beaten path. The food and service are outstanding. Victor (been there 22 years!) is a super waiter and set us up with the perfect table to watch the sunset! The morning breakfast staff was superb and did their best to keep the magpie jays at bay! The

Dear maryellap2016, Yes, Sugar Beach is secluded and it´s better to come in car if you like to explore. Glad you enjoyed the beach, restaurant and most of your stay and staff. So sorry to hear about this situation, our Customer Care Manager Mariano did follow up personally with you, as he explains we do have trust worthy staff for a long long time, being said that we also have an investigation is still in course with our cameras and reports. We of course checked staff that same day and all the lockers. Measure will be applied to the staff who entered your room as well. At this point we can only apologize for this, as you state, and we promote to always keep your value in the safe box. Kind regards, Victoria Bonilla López General Manager

Hola beercity, Thanks for your question: The nearest town is Potrero and is a 5 minute drive in car. In Potrero you can find restaurants, bars, and some nightlife. To be honest here is very quiet here and a bit secluded but still close to everything. You can walk to town if the tight is low but during night we would reccomend to take a taxi, we can help you with that, no problem. Yes, we have mini frigde in all rooms. Please let us know if have any other questions, happy to help. Pura VIda

Hola Adryan! This is not the best spot for snorkeling but right next to us in Playa Danta there is a water sport place that rents snorkeling equipment etc... Called PUra Vida Ride and we recommend for this Playa Dantita 5 minutes from here or Playa Conchal 20 minutes from here. Also there are catamaran tours that can take you to snorkel in beaches that you cannot get with a car. We have all the information in front desk with our customer service team. Please feel free to reach us anytime. Sincerely, Victoria
