Lovely little place off the main street on South end of Playa Carrillo. Room had nice comfy beds, big shower, kitchenette with micro, hot plate and refrigerator. Great little pool beside restaurant/bar area. Best streaks in Guanacaste ever!!! Dinner was fantastic, we ate like kings & queens. Wonderful people there made us feel welcome. If around the Samara/Carrillo area, this... More

Our room was comfortable, spacious, and clean. There was a queen size bed and 2 single beds. There is an in-room small safe, TV with cable, a medium sized refrigerator, 4 glasses, facial soaps, and bath towels. (You will need to bring a hair dryer and your own shampoo.) You can get by without the hair dryer since your hair... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and were very comfortable. The Cabinas are located on the hill overlooking Carillo beach, there are no accommodations at beach level, so about 10 mins walk down the hill. Plenty of space with terrace outside, nice pool. Good breakfast served in the adjacent Argentinian restaurant which has a very good reputation and is very... More

The service is the best, the people are very nice and very helpful, Fernando and Roxana make you feel so comfortable and make a familiar atmosphere. If you want to taste the real Argentine flavor the Colibris restaurant is the right place for dinner. Great value, great place and definitely great people.

I stayed at this place for one night at a cabin with 4 other friends. The room was excellent, clean and nice. Great value!. The pool was excellent, we got the chance to be at the pool day and night and it was never crowded, I guess a lot of the guests prefer the beach, Carrillo Beach is quiet and... More

Unfortunately, we have only sampled the restaurant at El Colibri and not the accomodations (yet). The restaurant attached to the cabinas is a local happening dining experience; it is an Argentinian grill and is excellent...everything is freshly made and simply delicious. We are interested in the cabinas as well and will be looking to stay in Playa Carillo (at, El... More

The product was absolutely great! Service was prompt and the fresh tuna was caught the same day and cooked right in front of you! The taste was great best tuna I have ever eaten. The ambience was perfect with quite reggae music in the faint distance. The location is off the main road but you can't miss it! If you... More

We discovered this lovely small establishment by chance last year. We have been so pleased with the accommodations in the Cabina's that in February we brought 7 friends with us. It is more like a small motel in North America and some rooms have a type of kitchen set up and numerous beds so great for families. There are picnic... More

A friend and I just returned from several lovely days in Puerto Carrillo. We stayed and ate at the Colibri and I would recommend doing both. The rooms are comfortable and we enjoyed having a kitchenette. The kitchenette could have been a bit better stocked, but the staff was happy to provide anything we needed. The owners couldn't be nicer.... More

While on vacation in the Samara area, a local recommended El Colibri Argentinian Steakhouse. We ate there early in our trip, and just LOVED the food. We made sure to return before the end of our trip. It's a little hard to find, tucked behind the hotel in tiny Puerto Carrillo, but it's fantastic steak in a nice open-air dining... More

“Choose a room with a kitchen if we were to come back. Food dining prices have gone up in the area. Playa Samara have more selections.”

“There are rooms with a little kitchen if you want to cook your own food.”

“There are rooms with stove, refrigerator and everything you need to cook at an extra charge. This can save you even more if your party is 3 or more and you bring your own food.”

“If you want privacy, the room at the end near the street is more private than most. The street is a gravel side street that people will park in the evening when visiting the restaurant. It is a happy atmosphere when the restaurant is open and the sounds from it not bothersome.”
