Right on the beach with sunsets that will make you want to never leave, with a cold drink in your hand in a comfortable chair on the beach with your toes in the sand,not a care in the world watching the sun slowly sinking into a golden sea! This is one of those places that you start planning to come back to before you even leave. Wonderful staff and the owner is a true gentleman.Sure there are five star resorts in the area and the only reason I didn't put a 5 on El Velero is because there are places with more amenities.....and to be fair to them and the people that want to spend a ton of money to feel like they have done something special I held one back. But I can't for the life of me think of one reason to spend loads of cash for things I would never really enjoy! El Velero is pure enjoyment at a more than reasonable price. Well maintained & really clean with a restaurant that is outstanding! You'll feel like you are staying with good friends the whole time you are there. I spend lots of time in Costa Rica and have been to a lot of places.... But El Velero is at the top of my list for recommendations on places to stay! I'm a photo pro and my camera loved this place make sure you check out the photos..... even did a few HDR!
