We read all the reviews and knew about what to expect. We've traveled to Mexico many times and do not expect the 5 star quality south of the border we get in the US. Our room was clean but the bed was not comfortable. We asked for an upstairs room because of all the reviews about bugs coming into ground... More

I spent the summer at this hotel. It is remote which suited me fine. The hotel staff is very polite and hardworking. Rooms , swimming pools and grounds are cleaned everyday. Meals are delicious and prepared on time. Over the last year, efforts have been made to refurbish and improve the conditions of the hotel. So hats off to the... More

Recommended for a no-frills, nature- and adventure-centered vacation. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Ours directly overlooked the bay and Isla Bolanos-- stunning view. There was a small terrace to enjoy this even more. At the time we visited, there was a near constant strong breeze off the bay, but the terrace was still enjoyable and the breeze cut the... More

We arrived on Sunday to what appeared to be a completely empty place in the middle of nowhere, but close to the Nicaraguan border...we had read the other trip advisor experiences and were prepared for bugs, bandits, beasts and bad weather. What we got was a wonderfully quiet setting, pristine beach, and a resort that was under maintenance. It's been... More

Ecoplaya is in a remote corner of Costa Rica along the southern side of Bahia Salinas. You should rent a car otherwise you'll be limited to tours the resort offers, which while not bad may not be what you want to do. The road there is very rough, though after spending two weeks in different parts of the country, there... More

Ecoplaya beach resort, near La Cruz, at the north of Costa Rica, is interestingly localized for it is close enough to a number of national parks - but you must rent a car. Roads in Costa Rica are not good, and accesses to this hotel in particular is quite bad. The hotel room is OK - quite big, actually, and... More

The hotel is located close to anything and far from everything. It is the perfect getaway if you really want to relax. The place is currently been remodel from years of poor or zero maintenance so it looks like it is going to be in great condition once finished. Food was more into the homestyle side but it was great.... More
