We recently stayed at Hotel Sugar Beach to attend a friend's wedding that was also held at the hotel. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The food was wonderful at the hotel restaurant- we ate most meals there during our 3 night stay. The beach is secluded and quiet. a quick drive to Tamarindo if you want more action.... More

My husband and I just returned from a week at Sugar Beach after celebrating our wedding on July 5th with 24 of our friends and family. We booked the resort based on pricing of the wedding package and pictures online of others' trips and were not sure what to expect prior to our arrival. We stayed with friends in the... More

If you're looking for a nice quiet get away, this is the spot! Our deluxe room was spacious and clean. Views are incredible. The pool was small but nice. The private beach was lovely and a wonderful spot to watch the sunset. The open air restaurant was terrific and the waiters and front desk staff very friendly and helpful. I... More

This place is secluded, quiet, and absolutely beautiful! I could've stayed poolside, on the beach, or in the water forever. Service was nice and the food was quite good as well! If you're looking to "get away from it all" this maybe exactly what you're looking for.

The resort is quiet and relaxing. The wait staff was friendly and courteous. The food was delicious. The waiter made some recommendations and he got it right. The meal tasted like something my grandmother used to cook 50 years ago and brought back to mind some wonderful memories. Would recommend this place over and over again.

This hotel is located on a beautiful private beach. We saw monkeys, iguanas, birds and beautiful sunsets. For the price, I was hoping for a bit more luxury in the room as it was fairly simple. The restaurant served delicious food at a fair price, but a bit pricier than I would like.

The place is just steps away from " Pan de Azucar" beach so you can walk in 30 seconds from the restaurant to the sea. The beach is not crowded. Therefore you... More

Sugar Beach is a curious spot. During our stay, the place was nearly deserted until our last day, a Friday. The beach is absolutely gorgeous, with herons diving in the surf, and the loveliest Pacific sunset imaginable. The food, was outstanding, and very reasonably priced.
