10/10 Exceptional

This is a lovely small hotel - beside a truly spectacular beach and close to a wildlife diverse and abundant mangrove estuary - we were at the end of our month long trip to costa rica - traveling with my two kids - so we very much enjoyed the pool - perfect!, and the restaurant great food and lovely staff- all hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful - There is also a cafe where we enjoyed morning coffee. We did encounter a few problems and they were dealt with, maybe not efficiently, but to great satisfaction. The check in was a little atypical - as the reception is shared with the next hotel along - but self check in instructions were clear, and we were even attempting to check in early - and all was made very easy for us! A wonderful experience in this beach/jungle paradise!

8/10 Very good

The food was amazing-- try their breakfast avocado egg toast and grilled tuna salad...OMG!!! Staff was very friendly and helpful. Be mindful property is NOT right on the beach, but it is a short 3 minute walk away. Beach is beautiful and relatively quiet. Also know that the beach closes at 6pm (sunset) to protect the turtles, but if you have transportation, you can easily get to restaurants/bars in Playa Grande (5 min drive) or either town of Tamarindo or Brasilito (20 min in either direction).

Loved this little hotel! Spent 9 days here at the beginning and end of our tour around the Nicola Peninsula. Clean and tidy. Low key. Great little restaurant with excellent food and service. The people make the place - Gabriellla and the other staff were friendly and helpful. Short walks to the beach and good consistent surf! If we get back to Playa Grande sometime we will definitely stay here again
