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. They have a private beach, very nice and safe (but I am sure that once they fix the stairs, it would be...

My room had the swimming pool right next to the backdoor. Also the location is good because you can go to Playa Flamingo, Playa Dantas...

Flamingo beach is on the expensive side, at least for Costa Rica, so this hotel isn't cheap, but it is very competitively priced compared to other hotels in the area. The view from up on the hill where the hotel is located is...

Hotel has one of the best views of Playa Flamingo. Sunset is superb! Staff are very helpful and friendly. This is all the positives I can say about the hotel. Here are the downsides: hallway, exterior dining area are dirty and are not cleaned everyday. Breakfast is ok but we had to wait for fruits, eggs when we stayed there....

Dear guest, I am really sorry that you feel that way but did not make us aware of any problems during your stay. We are in Costa Rica and we cannot control the poops of Iguanas or toads. 2 of the very large Iguanas are being constantly fed by our guests and we cannot chase them away. We entered their...

staying at the el sabnero hotel has been a unique experience. The room /hotel was clean and accommodating.The staff was friendly and eager to serve. The breakfast was fresh but could use a more varied menu. The view from the terrace was amazing. Can't wait to go back.
