Town center is about a 5 minute walk as well as the beach. The owner (Alesandro) is very friendly and helpful. I was bummed that he wasn't there at check out to... More

We stayed for five days in late June. Our first impression walking in was that the grounds and landscaping were incredibly well thought out and beautiful. The rooms are built around a center that contains fruit trees and several gazebo/gathering areas. Our room was large with a partial volume ceiling, recessed lighting, and an a/c that was more than enough.... More

This place is charming in its own way and that starts when you turn onto the short dirt road leading to the entrance. We came back for the second time after five years and found all the same, lied-back, romantic, the lush tropical garden, the blue, inviting pool. As it was the beginning of the green season in May, the... More

My wife an I booked 5 days of scuba diving in Playas del Coco and I did extensive research on hotels and bed & breakfast inns around the town. We absolutely loved La Puerta del Sol. It's far enough away from the downtown to avoid the tourists and the noise. But, it's close enough that you can walk to anything,... More

Hotel grounds are very well maintained, pretty and full of birds. The pool was cool and refreshing which is a first in CR. Most pools are warm in April. Great way to just relax and enjoy a coffee, just ask owner or staff and they will get you a cup. Darlene was very nice and helpful. We wanted to take... More

We stayed here for two nights in April 2016. This is a really nice place, with well maintained and beautiful grounds. It looks like what you picture in your head when you think of Costa Rica. The outdoor pool is really nice, located under a massive tree. The included breakfast is not spectacular but it is pretty good. The owner... More

We stayed here for a few nights in March 2016. Check in was a breeze and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our room was quite large, technically a junior suite, with an L-shaped built in seating area in front of a large window, a king size bed, small flat screen TV, concrete and tile floors, foyer with closet,...

We stayed at the Hotel Suerta del Sol for 5 nights. It is a great choice. The grounds and pool are really nice and well maintained, and the rooms are clean and comfortable. It is about a 5 minute walk down a well maintained path to the center of town, and far enough away to be peaceful and quiet. It... More

My partner and I stayed here while completing the dive package through Deep Blue Diving and in all honesty, I was a bit wary about coming here - the hotel had mixed reviews and the booking process was different than I was used to. But everything went incredibly smoothly, the owners were incredibly friendly and helpful and the hotel is... More

This hotel is a gem. Set around a lovely garden and pool, it is hard to believe you are only a short distance from the town centre. The room we stayed in was spacious with a large bed, sofa, TV, fridge, coffee machine. The shower room was also large, room for at least 2 at a time. Efficient air-conditioning. The... More
