A stay at Sugar Beach is highly recommended. The setting is secluded and tranquil. The service is excellent and the food is as good as any we found in several highly rated restaurants. We spent eight days hiking the beach during morning and watching stunning sunsets on the beach while enjoying local cocktails. You can walk to adjoining beaches during...

Stunning views at sunset on lovely grounds and beach! And the nice surprise was the entertainment and the food. We went for a drink and to watch the sunset. After we looked at the menu, we decided to stay for dinner. Service was fabulous as was the food. Everything from our server to the hostess could not have been better....

Our room was perfect. We would book that same room again. The breakfast had the same choice each morning; a little more variety would be nice for the stay of 5 nights as we did. Staff were excellent. The beach was great for walking. We swam several times. "Animal life" was that of Costa Rica; fantastic! We were a couple...

We stayed for only one night but wish we had been able to stay for several so have it on plans for future trip to Costa Rica. The accommodations were great and above what we expected. Daisy and Su were so welcoming when we arrived and that set the tone for the entire stay. We enjoyed the food in the...

The service was great and the people are so friendly. I especially loved the private beach that isn't shared with anyone and is only accessible to guests of sugar beach hotel. The rooms are so clean and incredibly nice. I was blown away when I first walked into our room because it looks and feels like a 5 star hotel...

We just returned from staying 4 nights at this property. Our room was very spacious and was located near the front desk on the top floor over looking the pool. It had two large rooms with their own balconies. The first room had an open air feel to it. It had 3 windows that were only covered by shutters which...

This hotel has a wonderful beach and the staff is very accommodating. Lunch room has a very good view of the ocean and the menu is excellent. I would recommend to visitors who want to get access to this quiet and beautiful beach. We will come back.

Dear Kim N, There is nothing like the word of our clients, thank you so much for your positive comment about our hotel. Sugar Beach is wonderful and we are so happy our staff was accommodating.
