The Hotel Brasilito was a serendipitous choice for my husband and me when we recently spent three days there during our recent visit to Costa Rica. For $50.00 a night, we stayed in a room (with a large ceiling fan) that looked out upon the water and afforded us the pleasure of hearing the waves at night. Each morning, we could watch the local villagers running out to the beach to catch the plentiful supply of "gurel", and each evening we enjoyed delicious dinners provided by the restaurant below our room Outback Jack's and other local eateries that were right near our hotel. (We had two of the best meals of our entire trip in this village.) The owner and all of the employees we met were very accommodating in every way, and all of the ticos in this little village were very pleasant and helpful in every way. We spent ten days in Costa Rica, and if we ever have the wonderful opportunity to return, we will definitely return to Hotel Brasilito.
I should add that my husband and I enjoy traveling on our own and especially want to experience places that are not necessarily just meant for tourists. Also, since we enjoy being outdoors and don't care about spending time in our hotel room, we don't look for luxuries in our lodgings. We just want our accommodations to be clean and comfortable for sleeping. Keeping these facts in mind, Hotel Brasilito was a great find. It is within a short walking distance of the Playa Conchal and a very easy15 minute drive to Tamarindo.
One word of advice, however-- if you happen to arrive on a Saturday as we did, be prepared to be up until midnight listening to some great Costa Rican music that will pour from a local hangout that is right across from the hotel. Also, since there is a restaurant right below the part of the hotel that we stayed in, there is activity until about ten each night and pots and pans rattling by about six in the morning. These hours fit in perfectly with our plans, but may not suit everyone!
