Nice, clean place with really good food, a nice pool and access to the beach. The road to get there is a dirt road, not too easy to drive. But it`s worth it. The houses of the property are built quite close to each other and there is not too much green. Therefore it doesn`t really feel like you`re in... More

I was so happy to find this place on airbnb, booked 4 nights with confirmation of 314$ (78.5$ per night with fees included). Later I found out the driving time back to San Jose will take too long so we decided to break the trip in half and asked Agua Dulce if we could shorten the trip down to 3... More

I've stayed at Agua Dulce three times and loved it each time. The rooms are steps away from the pool/restaurant, and a private stretch of gorgeous beach. Each time we visited, I saw Scarlett macaws, heard howler monkeys, and had great service by all of the staff members. Highly recommended.

We spent three nights and four days in this hotel and saw pluses and minuses. First of all, the hotel is located far from Puerto Jimenez which is good and bad. The good part is that you don't hear air planes which are quite loud as we figured just from dining in town. The hotel is quiet and peaceful because... More

We stayed at couple of nights at the Agua Dulce resort after spending a little over a week at Iguana lodge right next door. While the iguana lodge is AMAZING it does not have A/C and is a little pricey if you're not there on a group rate. The food at Agua Dulce was a disappointment after feasting on some... More

If you have not read yaaburnee's review, please do so. I agree with every word he/she wrote, especially about the security issues. Agua Dulce could be a very nice place but the administration should be run out of town on a rail. From the website, you are told that they have a swim-up bar, in-room jacuzzies, hairdryers, and that you... More

Clean rooms, friendly staff. Right on the beach. Restaurant is a bit pricey, but not too bad. Has A/C and good water pressure. Arranged a day of fishing and a half day hike which was perfect. Great Value. I highly recommend commend checking it out.

After reading the response from the "resort" on other people's negative reviews, I did not even want to bother writing a review - but people need to know what they are getting themselves into here from an honest, real reviewer that stayed two nights at Agua Dulce.

“beach bungalows are really nice, as you see and hear the beach. The other rooms are located further from the beach - so they do not have the same view, but they are lower priced and give you very good value for your money (you are anyways just a couple of metres from the beach).”
