“Paradise in the Lap of Luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2010

My husband and I stayed on the second floor of The Plaza Resort and absolutely loved it! It is literally right on the beach, with picturesque sunsets and fantastic surf. You could watch the surfers for hours. The black sand beach was peaceful and quiet. There is also a private pool which was refreshing and beautifully lit for night swiming. The rooms were immaculate and high end, it was like a five star hotel. This place was just minutes away from Jaco, so the location could not have been better. We enjoyed deep sea fishing, zip-lining, restaurants with seafood caught that day and beachside bars at night. Also, there is a fantastic beachside breakfast spot, just a walk down the beach. One of our favorite memories was watching a sea turtle lay her eggs on the beach right before our eyes and then return to the ocean! We will definitely be back!

I stayed in the second floor beachfront unit for 4 days and sooooo wish I could have stayed longer. What an amazing place, it was truly paradise! The rental rate was a great price for being right on the beach, and the furnishings in the unit were all high end and meticulously cared for. The beach was a soft black sand beach called Playa Hermosa, easily the most beautiful beach I saw while in Costa Rica. Falling asleep to...and then waking up to...the sound of Playa Hermosa's waves was so relaxing. I don't surf, but watching the surfers on what I'm told are some of Costa Rica's best surf waves from my balcony was mesmerizing.

The resort manager Jeff was attentive and helpful in making arrangements to go to the nearby Manuel Antonio National Park to see the white-faced monkeys, sloths, etc. We also rented wave runners, which were a blast! Playa Hermosa was the perfect mix of a quiet beach away from the crowds, but only about a 5 minute drive to Jaco which had terrific restaurants and fun clubs late-night. I can't wait to go back!
