My husband and I were lucky enough to spend 22 amazing days in Costa Rica last month, 10 of those days were spent at El Sueno Tropical. If we didn't have to leave to attend a wedding in San Jose, we probably would have extended our time at El Sueno. We were made to feel so welcome and at home by Jose, Maria and Joanna, it was hard to leave! The hotel was such a relaxing place, the rooms large and clean with great AC. The pool was refreshing. The scenery was serene. The complementary breakfast was more than ample, it was delicious. Playa Carrillo is a gorgeous, practically secluded beach. The hotel is a quick drive to the beach. We didn't have a car but Jose was so kind to drive us. There is also a bus (which does not come frequently) that we took both to Playa Carillo and Playa Samara (about 10 miles north). Everyone who worked at the hotel, both the staff and volunteers went above and beyond, they were fantastic. I highly recommend this hotel. We will definitely stay here when we return. The only suggestion I would make to fellow travelers is to rent a car. Like I mentioned Jose was gracious enough to offer us rides to the beach, but I would have loved the freedom to go out and explore on our own.
