Isla Chiquita was a perfect spot for our family to explore, relax and eat delicious food. Such a great spot, uncrowded and simply amazing. The decked out tents are luxurious- with excellent facilities. Exceeded my expectations!

Wow! This place has been our favorite in Costa Rica! The rooms are fabulous! I mean, they’re tents but they’re tents that fit a king size bed, a sitting area, a double vanity full bathroom and a wonderful porch to take in the beach, the jungle, the howler monkeys, the iguanas and amazing sunrises and sunsets. We had more space than any other hotel so far. We were in #18 all the way at the top and felt spoiled by the seclusion and the awesome views from atop the island. The food is really good!! The restaurant on site has lots of options. One thing to note, other restaurants are not easily accessible. We had all our meals here and none of them disappointed! Be prepared to pay around $15 per meal and cocktails are about $8-$12 each. This didn’t bother us at all. We enjoyed the great service from the staff. They have really good wine selections. We had a little howler monkey family that were right outside our room, so close we could almost reach out and touch them (though that would be a bad idea so we didn’t.) There were three little baby monkeys that were just adorable to watch. We wanted to go traditional Costa Rican fishing so the staff made arrangements for the two of us to go fishing on a little boat on Monday afternoon. Jason, the manager, and Eric our boat captain were so wonderful. So fun!! My husband caught a triggerfish that they made up into ceviche for us for dinner that night. It was really an amazing experience. We relaxed on the beach and had an amazing time! Irvin, Manuel, Matte, and the team were really great! We loved this experience and hope to come back again in a few years. Thanks for a great stay!

This glamping experience has been one of our favorite stays in Costa Rica. Friendly service and great food within the resort. The rooms are clean with very lush mattresses. We loved getting to sleep in a tent and being close to the islands nature while being very comfortable. On the second morning we woke up to a group of Howler monkeys right outside. I got to sit and enjoy my coffee as we watched them swing from tree to tree. The tents are very convenient with indoor plumbing and electrical. We visited as a family with young kids and just loved using the kayaks, hammocks and cabanas. We also took the Bioluminescence tour and it was very cool to see. This tour is a MUST DO if you are in the area. Our kids loved the boat ride and have been talking about how the ocean glowed for weeks afterwards. We would highly recommend this hotel for a vacation get away!

We’re extremely satisfied with our stay at Isla Chiquita! One of a kind experience, amazing cuisine but the highlight of the hotel is the customer service. A special thanks to Mayte, who was very attentive with us and my 4-year old daughter. Also, to Jason who taught my father-in-law to fish! We’ll come back for sure!

Nice little boutique hotel. Very corteous personnel, special mention to Maite and Arturo who go the extra mile to serve customers with excellence and great atittude. Hotel is perfect for a few days of retreat, 4 or 5 days aprox. Great food at restaurant. The beach is not that great (it is black rocky sand), but the overall nature experience makes up for that. The Tents are great and with great views. Small Note: hotel should discourage big groups, as once they arrive service goes down and there seems to be preference over groups rather than customers paying higher fares (that are not part of any groups). Also, big groups should be discouraged during these Covid times. That I think was the only negative aspect of our visit.

Room Tip: higher rooms are the ones with best view (14 through 18). A bit more expensive but worth it!
