The grounds and pool are great. Free breakfast and coffee were very good as well. Room were nice but not great. Out side shower and bathroom for each room that was connected. Not easy to get to the property, but it was worth the drive.

We loved everything about Aguas Claras! We stayed in Cacao, and it was beautiful quiet and private. The staff were all amazing and helpful, eager to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. And the food was absolutely delicious! We ate most of our meals here for a week and had plenty of selection. We took advantage of so many of the amenities offered, pool side service, beach food/drink service, yoga, massage, kayak tour, and even rode bikes to town. All of these made our stay better than we could have hoped for!! Aguas Claras has some of the best service we have received, as the staff are very attentive and also love to point out the wildlife so you don’t miss a thing. I would highly recommend the massage, as it was one the best massages we’ve had, and the tour guides they recommend are friendly and knowledgeable! I highly recommend Aguas Claras, and we will be back!!

4/10 Fair

Ask for work being done in the property, they were doing maintenance so I couldn’t enjoy of the pool my second day because it was emptied the night before and at the beach there was no beach house service or chair/towels, strong smell of chemicals and construction sounds no relaxing at all. The service is amazing and people try to help with everything but since they were closing for works at the hotel some items on the menu weren’t available and all...wouldn’t have stayed if I knew about this and enjoyed a day pass instead

We had an amazing time at Aguas Claras. The hotel grounds are beautiful, and our room was dreamy as well. The ambiance was super chill and quiet, the food was really good and reasonably priced, and the amenities (including the free bikes) were lovely as well. We are definitely coming back to this hotel in the future!

This is a great boutique hotel. The staff is great and since it’s a small hotel, you feel like family. The grounds and room are updated very nicely. The beach is beautiful and quiet, only a short 2 minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant and bar is excellent. I didn’t want to eat anywhere else because the food was so good.
