“Home away from home”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

I just stayed here with a yoga retreat for a week, and we all loved this place. It's probably a 2 star hotel, but the service is 5 star. Mary Lou made us feel like we were in a loving home. Breakfast was light healthy and excellent. The walk to the beach was about 100 yards on a semi private path. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Some rooms are not air conditioned, but it generally is cool enough at night to sleep. Rooms 5, 6...

Just returned from our first and by no means last stay at Casa Romantica, simpy put wonderful. We had a very comfortable room loved the fridge and kitchette and chairs and table to sit at outside our room in the evening. Remo and his staff were welcoming and always helpful during our stay. Gustavo the chef made us some awesome meals and the breakfast each morning was terrific. Couple that with the short walk to the beach and other spots in town it doesn't get better then this.

We stayed at Casa Romantica for just one night but ended up coming back for 3 more nights because we loved it so much! The staff is AMAZING (Chrisitian was so helpful and SO nice and Mary was the sweetest and such a huge help also) and the restaurant is SO YUMMY. We will definitely be coming back!!

Casa Romantica is one of my favorite places to stay in Guiones. The rooms are nice and they have a very good complimentary breakfast buffet. The property is well-kept and there is a path directly to the beach. They also have board racks by the pool, and we've never had a problem leaving boards there, including overnight.

Room Tip: Not all of the rooms have A/C, so just be aware of that when you make your reservations.

I am not sure why the previous reviewer despised this hotel so much. My family has traveled around the world and stayed in many types of accommodations. When we book a hotel for $120 a night, we do not expect luxury, we expect basic amenities.
Casa Romantica is a beautiful little spot perfectly situated a short walk from the one of the most gorgeous beaches I have ever encountered. My husband and two boys booked adjacent rooms (9 &10) with a shared patio graced with wooden rocking chairs and a handy drying rack. The rooms are very basic, tile floors, beds were large and the sheets were perfectly acceptable. With the air conditioner at a comfortable temp, we all slept soundly every night. The bathroom is spacious and clean, though the shower water pressure was laughable. Somehow this did not bother any of us too much. If you are a stickler for a strong shower head, be forewarned.
Otherwise, the grounds are private and lush, the pool is nice and shaded, and the breakfast is just fine, fresh fruit, eggs, french toast, and homemade bread with jam. We ate dinner here two nights and the experience was lovely, food delicious. Get the lobster if they have it, divine.
The staff, particularly Mary Lou, is wonderful, very sweet and welcoming. There is an honor system refrigerator stocked with water, sodas, and ice cold beer. We loved this amenity.
Overall, this was a perfectly comfortable and welcoming place to stay. We ended up staying here 5 nights and moving to Harmony Hotel for the last three nights, triple the price and definitely more luxurious. Yet we all agreed that our stay at Casa Romantica felt more authentic, we engaged with the guests, shared recommendations, tried out our Spanish with the staff, and made ourselves at home. Am authentic Costa Rican experience.
Oh, and did I mention the incredible beach steps away where you can take your morning and afternoon swims? Paradise.

TERRIBLE. Lousy accommodations, rooms noisy, stinky and hot, bedding ancient, mattress sags, uncomfortable. You will baste all night in your own sweltering juices. Owners are out of touch with reality at every level, could care less about guest comfort. Worst hotel in Costa Rica.
