During a recent visit to all of the provinces of Costa Rica, our southern most stop over on the Pacific side was Golfito. One of the reasons being, that we wanted to explore the Osa peninsula from here (which unfortunately due to rain and landslides did not come to full fruition).
Reading travel magazines and books, one gets a very dark picture of Golfito, as it was once a bustling export harbor for interalia the banana industry. But, has since fell in a little bit of disrepair. There is a impressive new marina being developed at the upper end of Golfito which will once completed probably get rid of some of the negative publicity this area gets.
We found our visit to the area worth while, both because of its beautiful natural surroundings, as well as still some very commendable places to stay, eat, and shop. We were booked into the Captain Suite at Banana Bay, which had its own private little overwater deck complete with chairs and hammock. It also had a welcome little kitchenette. The rooms were clean, very spacious, with airconditioning, ceiling fans, and in room safe, and easily accessible.
The staff had no problem to extend and alter our stay on short notice literally an hour or two once again because of our plans to drive to the Osa Peninsula being altered due to landslides.
Although not 100% fluent in English, there were enough staff members having a good enough use of the English language to accommodate us, discuss and meet all of our needs.
For yachties, it has its own little “on site marina”, docking facilities and all that goes together with this form of travel, accommodation, and lifestyle.
There’s a bar, overlooking the Gulfo Dulce, as well as a basic good restaurant serving traditional fair, bar type food, and anything in between.
This is not 5 star, but good solid, recommendable, and affordable lodging.

Room tip: Get the Captain suite on the corner as it has a kitchenette and deck over water.

Never been in a Hotel with the kind of service they offer, completely clean, nice food, very well located, and the way the personnel service to you is simply amazing.
During nights is completely quiet, and has a very hight security. They care about their guests!!!!

We've spent time in both the marina (at the docks) and in the hotel and the hotel is really great. The staff are all first rate and very friendly/helpful. The rooms are very comfortable with a tiny in-room safe, a fridge and a huge bathroom.

The restaurant is also very nice with good food and drinks.

We will stay there again !

Room tip: Not sure if there is much difference between the rooms but some of them probably front the water (not a beach).

we were travelling through by boat after a busy season in the Pacific a number of years ago now, but this is a chilled out spot, where everyone is welcome. the food shopping in the area wasn't great, but what they did with the local available food was absolutely stunning. and the coldest beers in the world!
a simple place, right on the water, perfect for launching off to your next adventure.
