I have stayed at El Sabanero twice. This hotel is totally worth it if you like wonderful views and prime location. It is right in the center of the best beach in Guanacaste (Flamingo Beach), and located near great beaches such as Conchal, Carrillo, Danta, Tamarindo, etc, as well as fine dining and access to outdoor activities. However, if you...

we just arrived and Joseph the manager was welcoming and a nice guy... but it's a place to avoid!!. It is dirty and run down. The pool has lots of leaves and insect bodies floating and lots more on the bottom. Our room is very basic and there are no facilities like a fridge or kettle- in fact there's not...

The staff were nice but this hotel is in no way worth what they charge. There is no wifi in the rooms, no blankets on the beds (only a top sheet), and they lack even the most basic amenities. I would in no way recommend this hotel, all there flaws can be easily overlooked if one were staying in a...

So sorry to say but this place is disgusting. We booked a room through booking.com. We were told there was a private beach, air conditioning and a beautiful view of the water. WRONG We were 2 floors down in the basement with no lights on either the stairs or the hallway. The air conditioning didn't work and it was 88...

This was the worst place I've ever stayed. The A/C was broken and there were no windows to open, the mattress was bent on the bed and there were no mattress covers, and our whole bodies ached from how awful the beds were. The owner was incredibly rude, and our room was all the way down four flights of stairs...

Every morning we had breakfast on the terrace with the most incredible view. At night we saw an awesome night sky and display of fireflies off the same terrace. We visited during low season so the hotel was very quiet. It would have been nice to see lots of people hanging out there. The management and staff were a huge...

I did call to Expedia on August 2013. I did ask to help me to find the nice hotel which one located very close to the ocean because we need to swim every day. Expedia sold to me the room at El Sabanero Beach hotel. I am 60 and my husband's sister is 55. We are from Washington State- it's...

I struggled with whether to writing a candid review about this hotel, because it may hurt their business, but I wouldn't want anyone else to be drawn in by the wonderful web photos they provide and then have to spend valuable vacation time at this rundown resort.

We stayed at the Sabanero for 3 days and we had an amazing time. With a great location, the view is impressive and it is really close to other beaches such as Conchal, Brasilito, Potrero and many others.
