Really nice, large, clean rooms. Very nice and friendly staff. Really great property on the back streets but still very close to the beach. The only thing that wasn't perfect was that the pool was under a lot of trees and it got dirty very very quickly so you almost needed for someone to constantly clean it. For that reason...

Stayed here for 7 nights via a diving package with Deep Blue Diving. Very spacious rooms, good A/C, clean, fridge. Well kept garden and swimming pool. Breakfast not a lot of options but tasty and fresh. Owners and staff very friendly. Very close to the diving centre and beach and close to the centre of the town as well. I...

I would honestly never, ever dare to stay at this place again. Due to a simple mix up with the hotel policy the owner actually attempted to come by our room 3 times in an evening and demand us to pay more due to having an extra person or leave. The amount for each additional person is quite ridiculous, and...

My wife and I came here after spending 5 nights at the grand occidental papagayo. The room was pleasant. The grounds are lush and beautiful. Nice refreshing pool. Town center is about a 5 minute walk as well as the beach. The owner (Alesandro) is very friendly and helpful. I was bummed that he wasn't there at check out to...

We stayed for five days in late June. Our first impression walking in was that the grounds and landscaping were incredibly well thought out and beautiful. The rooms are built around a center that contains fruit trees and several gazebo/gathering areas. Our room was large with a partial volume ceiling, recessed lighting, and an a/c that was more than enough....

This place is charming in its own way and that starts when you turn onto the short dirt road leading to the entrance. We came back for the second time after five years and found all the same, lied-back, romantic, the lush tropical garden, the blue, inviting pool. As it was the beginning of the green season in May, the...

My wife an I booked 5 days of scuba diving in Playas del Coco and I did extensive research on hotels and bed & breakfast inns around the town. We absolutely loved La Puerta del Sol. It's far enough away from the downtown to avoid the tourists and the noise. But, it's close enough that you can walk to anything,...

Hotel grounds are very well maintained, pretty and full of birds. The pool was cool and refreshing which is a first in CR. Most pools are warm in April. Great way to just relax and enjoy a coffee, just ask owner or staff and they will get you a cup. Darlene was very nice and helpful. We wanted to take...

We stayed here for two nights in April 2016. This is a really nice place, with well maintained and beautiful grounds. It looks like what you picture in your head when you think of Costa Rica. The outdoor pool is really nice, located under a massive tree. The included breakfast is not spectacular but it is pretty good. The owner...

We stayed here for a few nights in March 2016. Check in was a breeze and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Our room was quite large, technically a junior suite, with an L-shaped built in seating area in front of a large window, a king size bed, small flat screen TV, concrete and tile floors, foyer with closet,...
