The hotel was way of the grid!! Way down in the Oso Peninsula!! Very beautiful peninsula!! It seemed to be more for locals who go there on vacation. No TV. Rooms were very plain. The bathrooms were huge, but the windows were available for everyone to see in, the blinds did not close. (this is if you had the beach... More

Hello, Greetings from ADBR!!! We hope that you and your family are doing great. I was on duty when you first came that afternoon. I also remember that you mentioned clearly that the hotel was good, but your wife did not like the location, however you never said anything about windows, doors or security at all. Also, I remember that... 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. If you look at a lot of the reviews of this "resort" you... More

Lovely hotel on the beach, great staff lovely food. Beautiful surroundings. Not one to miss. On a business trip but ended up staying a few extra nights to relax. Worth staying a few nights as there is so much to do I.e the nearby rain forest and costal areas

The front desk staff made us feel welcome right from the beginning of our stay, after a long drive it was so nice the way we were greeted. Our room wasn't ready yet, as we got there early in the day, but we were given our pool towels and told we can relax by the pool/ocean and we could go... More

Agua dulce is a small seaside very simple hotel around 4kms from Puerto Jimenez on an unasphalted. The black sand beach is just in front and provides great opportunity to enjoy sunrise if you wake up early enough. The rooms are ok in size but could not be more basic: a decent bed with one bedsite table and a couple... More

You will enjoy this hotel as it has the nicest pool around. The beach is a stones throw away where it will be just you and the beach. The food is not gourmet but ok. We drove here so we had our own transportation.I could see not having a car to be more difficult to get out here. It's peaceful.... More

My daughter stayed here for a teen travel program and said it was a great hotel! It is beautiful and super close to the beach. The pool was centrally located, clean, and large. The rooms were amply sized and had massive porches (which are shared with your next door neighbor). The food served was traditional Costa Rican as well as... More
