Staff helped us plan a wonderful dolphin and snorkel tour! Staff was the best part of the stay. The bad. Road in is unpaved and very far from the city, the beach is rocky and mostly just a big surf break at high tide... Not ideal for swimming and would definitely take children even close to it as the riptide...

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...

The hotel is not that easy to reach, (bumpy 6 km's from nearest village) , but thats why it is a great location to stay if you like the silence. The hotel has a great pool and good restaurant. Directly located on a fantastic deserted beach. Good place to relax after or before the exploration of the nature reserves.

First of all, it's a very gay unfriendly hotel. This has shown from our visit to their restaurant. The server laughed at me(even together with the owner) that I ordered a pinnapple juice without ice, without suggesting that they don't have cold juice in the fridge. Despite the fact that there were only four customers in the restaurant, we had...

Puerto Jiménez has lots of things to offer. We as a family wanted a retreat that provided shelter as well as the opportunity to watch flora and fauna, AND WE FOUND IT ALL AND MORE! The staff was very kind, and they know you by name. So many little but significant things made our stay better. So besides watching the...

Left DC for rest, relaxation and fishing. Great fishery and beautiful beaches. Off the beaten path but that is what I found most enjoyable. Clean room and beautiful pool area. Friendly staff. The only thing keeping me from a 5 star is the restaurant. Food good just not spectacular for the price.

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...

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.

“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).”
