I am already back home but still have to think a lot about the stay at Hotel Esperanza. BEST STAY! Every morning we went swimming at the beeeautiful Playa Carrillo (5-10 min walking distance) and afterwards we were welcomed with a delicious breakfast at the Hotel (Tico breakfast & yummy pancakes). Dennis and Karina took great care of us and told us a lot about the surrounding area and helped us to get along. Dennis booked a horse ride with his neighbor for us, i count this experience as one of the best during my Costa Rica stay – if you have the chance DO IT 😊 the rooms were very nicely furnished (comfy & clean) and in the beautiful outdoor area with pool you could relax very well. In general the place is very good to come down a bit. Don’t miss this experience on your Costa Rica vacation ! Thank you Dennis & Karina for everything! The goodbye cookies were the best!

My friends and I spent a few days at this wonderful hotel and we enjoyed the stay very, very much. Dennis and Karina are gracious hosts, very welcoming and attentive! They truly made us feel at home all the time! Thank you so much! Our highlights: The delicious, homemade breakfast, the pool, the hibiscus eating iguana, the beautiful beach nearby, the horse riding (organized by Dennis). We fully recommend this amazing place and we would definitely come back. Don’t miss the chance to get to know the adorable hosts Dennis and Karina and Playa Carrillo!

I loved our stay at the hotel. My family was treated incredibly by Dennis and Karina. Their recommendations were great. We had an incredible time. Loved the pancakes. The room was just what we needed and the swimming pool a great compliment after a day on the beach.

My family and I really enjoyed staying at this Hotel. Dennis and Karina were very friendly and they made our stay as to be at home. Breakfast was amazing and we are going to miss the famous pancakes. Important to mention, the beach is a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. For sure, we are going to stay in Hotel Esperanza again in our next vacations.

Dennis and Karina made our stay very memorable. Our rooms were very comfortable and clean. Having a special breakfast every morning was a great start to each day. They even made special Mickey Mouse pancakes for the children. Although we had a reservation for a rental vehicle, there was none available when we arrived. Dennis was always on hand to drive our whole family into town or down to the beach every day. Then he would pick us up when our beach day was complete. Dennis and Karina went out of their way to make our stay perfect. We cannot thank them enough for their kindness. We highly recommend the Hotel Esperanza during a visit to Costa Rica.
