We stayed here for two night so we would be closer to San Jose than Manual Antonio for our afternoon flight. Location is convenient to the highway and the route to manual Antonio(1 hr), Jaco with tourist shops and restaurants(15 min), and San Jose(about 2 hrs) yet very secluded down a gravel path to the beach. Hotel is modern with open air dining under a grass-roofed gazebo, bright-colored rooms, and friendly staff. . Rooms are comfortable with ocean views, and just steps to the beach from the private patios. (unique shower is next to a sliding glass door to a private courtyard - almost like taking a shower outside. Ocean side patio also has glass to view the ocean from the entire room, but curtains can be drawn outside the patio in the evening) Beautiful sunsets and the beach only had a few people walking their dogs or riding horses as I looked North or South to the horizon. There are only about 20 cabanas on the property so we felt like we almost had the place to ourselves. I woke in the morning and collected sand dollars on the beach with my son. They also have two pools. I would recommend this hidden gem to anyone that wants a few days of secluded relaxation or downtime on the beach.
