The rooms were in pretty bad shape, the air conditioning was not working well, the fridge were not working as well, we had to call maintenance couple of times. The pool area was pretty nice though, but everything else was kind of disappointing

The isolation of Ecoplaya resort is what makes it so special. Away from the craziness of every day life. Nature abounds the resort, from the evening visitors (curious raccoons) to the bird life, variety of squirrels that I had never seen before. Our unit was right next to the beach so sitting on the veranda in a rocking chair listening... More

The casa was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath where the hot water was non existent, which doesn't bother me, but the first 2 days we didn't have any water except an hour a day. The grounds are terribly run down and the pool was not very clean. Food in the restaurant was only OK. It looks like they haven't spent... More

We went as a family of adults and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ecoplaya. The older reviews were a bit disturbing, but we decided to give it a try because we wanted to be in the northern region of Guantacaste. We were not disappointed. The resort is quiet and away from crowds. The beach was all to ourselves and we... More

Our overall recommendation is that folks should avoid this place. When we made our reservation for this location, there was only one room available to us. Though we had a reservation (and presented documented proof of it upon arrival), the front desk did not have the reservation in their records. The person running the desk appeared to almost not know... More

I Bought a week of stay with RCI several months ago. I didn't know that this hotel is in poor condition... The swimming pool is not maintained properly. The maintenance of the cabins is very low. The water supply was cut most of the time. But the personal was kind and friendly...

We were looking forward to relaxing by the pool.......what we arrived to was quite different than the pictures.....pool was disgusting, couldn't see the bottom, nothing more than an animal bath really....room had potential but had odd smell and very worn appliances that were scary to use. Looked as if the property was on the verge of shutting down. Location was... More

I visit Ecoplaya about once a year, I see the constant improvements in maintenance and upkeep. The service from the second we arrived in reception was remarkable! It always feels like home! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

The facilities and its location is ok, the admin people is nice and polite, and we received a great service at the restaurant, but as usual, be careful about what you left in the room. Without a 100% of certainty (it is around 99.99%), I didn't make an official complaint about something missed in our room but definitely I will... More
