(English at the bottom) El hotel se ubica en una playa que NO es la que usan en sus fotografías. La playa no es Rajada y no tiene arena clara. Tampoco se menciona que la zona es extremadamente ventosa y que es destino de kite surfing, por lo que puede causar inconvenientes si uno no lo sabe. El servicio es...

Excellent cabinas and rooms, most renovated and in good standard. Fantastic location on a private beach with a superb pool and friendly restaurant. Most small things are really annoying however - wifi never works and noone cares, several small amenities and tools in the kitchen like potato peeler was missing (and we were told there was none we could borrow...

Walked into a large room that smelled of urine, the smell did dissipate once we aired it out by leaving the balcony doors open. The bath tub was stained, had rusted screws sticking out of the wall from a broke off soap holder, holes in the shower curtain, and shower head was laying at the back of the tub. When...

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The grounds are meticulously maintained daily without any disturbance or inconvenience to guests. The beach is great for shell hunting and swimming. It was a very relaxing visit and I would recommend Ecoplaya to anyone looking for a peaceful, out of the way destination.

My husband and I and two of our adult children spent 7 days & nights at Ecoplaya in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa. It was very comfortable & quiet and we felt at home. After reading many of the older reviews I understood that it has been in transition and I found that the new owners have done a...

We were there for 3 nights with Costa Kite who are based out of the hotel and had discounted arrangements for their kitesurfing clients. Other than a walk on the nice enough and very quiet beach we didn't spend any time there as we were kitesurfing out at Copal Beach and went for sundowners at the end of the day...

Great location and nice surroundings, new owner trying hard to get this place back on track. Overall, it was good value for the money (stayed at the standar rooms), villas look pretty nice as well. The service at the restaurant was good, especially for dinner time (our waiter was very friendly and nice - he was on the night shift...

The review is based on us paying $360 a night for the King villa (2 bdr, 2 baths) around new year. For that kind of prize we felt that there should be functioning wifi (not only at reception), hot water, coffee maker, facets that could turn, keys for the safe (we were basically told that somehow no rooms had keys...

Let me start by saying the room I stayed in is a little tired, but I'm not staying at the hotel to spend any time in the room apart from sleeping, so it really does not matter. The hotel and facilities are perfect. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool and bar/restaurant area are great. There is a beach...

I stayed here with my wife and 2 young children and babysitter for 4 days and nights. We had a great time! The room was comfortable, and fully functional, and great place to unwind after a day of kitesurfing from the beach. The staff (especially Chito) was amazing, and hardworking. We found out after checking in that there is a...
