This property is a first class boutique hotel on the beach as advertised. Very clean, polite helpful staff and the food at Roberto's is excellent. A fair price for a first class facility. Mosquitoes at night while dining are vicious. If we return to this area we would definitely stay here. My wife and I live in the mountains in Costa Rica and really aren't beach people but would definitely recommend this property.

My husband and I have stayed at La Gaviota for 5 evenings. We have loved everything we experienced ! The rooms are clean and spacious. The beach is clean, quiet and the surf is gentle.. This boutique hotels staff are wonderful and make sure your experience is great. Roberto's restaurant is on the first floor and with tables on the beach. Food was outstanding. My husband wanted octopus and Roberto made sure that it was available that evening!! We can not wait to return! Being greeted by Sila each morning for a wonderful breakfast is a treat! Oh and you must try the ceviche ! The pool at the roof is amazing at sunset!

We just finished a two week stay at La Gaviota Tropical in Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste Costa Rica and absolutely loved it! The staff was very friendly, and the breakfast and other dining at Roberto's Restaurant was delicious. We stayed in the Playa room which was very clean and spacious. Bed was huge, infinity pool on the rooftop provided an excellent view of the sunset, and we loved soaking up the sun on the beach only a few feet away! Five stars!

We stayed in La Gaviota Tropical for 5 nights in La Playa suite. The location of this hotel is great if you want to be in a quiet beach. The suite and all hotel's facilities are very clean and well maintained. The service was very good. The Roberto's restaurant is right on the first floor with tables inside and outside. We had lunch and a few dinners at this restaurant. Food and service was so good that we did not even want to go to other restaurants in the area. Every day they had fresh fish that was delicious. Roberto and his staff were very nice and very helpful. Overall, we have had great time over there.

Stay here even if it is a bit over your budget. Attention to detail never quits and the staff sincerely want you to enjoy your stay. The beach in the a.m. is a great walk and on the roof by the pool for sunset is memorable.

Room tip: Pay more, get the master suite!
