Pura Vida. Hello Ricardo. Thanks for writing a comment, it's very kind of you.

After a grueling week in central CR (pouring rain, the flu), our trip to Clandestino was everything we hoped. Beautiful scenery, relaxation, excellent food, beach massage, and low-key but helpful and friendly staff. Gravel entrance road? Iguanas? Geckos? Dogs? If you don't appreciate those, you don't appreciate Costa Rica. Don't miss this hidden gem. Pura Vida!

Amazing small aesthetically designed resort in a tropical paradise. The rooms were spacious and clean, staff were excellent as well as discrete and we received personalized service in a beautiful spot. Even more wonderful is that there is an empty beach, sunsets, full moon and very good food. What more can anybody ask! Oh, and the pool was inviting and...

My husband and I spent 6 nights at Clandestino after completing a 10 day tour originating in San Jose. The country is lovely and so varied in climate and geography but once you hit the Pacific coastline, you know you are in the tropics! Our time at Clandestino was the perfect ending as it was so relaxing and peaceful. The...

I stayed at this resort on March 3 & 4. The pictures perfectly describe the hotel. The location is nice, with a beach that is all yours (if that is what you are looking for) no much to do, but to relax and enjoy. If you are looking for activities and such I would recommend you go there. If you...

I booked this resort knowing it would be a remote getaway- and it was! We drove down the dirt road... unsure of what we would find... upon arriving we were overwhelmed by the beauty of the location, this place sits directly across from the beach... and the sunsets are beyond words.
