My family and I recently returned from a 4 night stay at Bahia del Sol. Pros: The staff was friendly and courteous--Gabriela and Angeleo (wait staff?). The beach was quiet, at one time I counted only 23 people as far as I could see. Nice wave break for boogie boarding. Nice to have a separate sleeping area for adults and...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We were so happy with this place! We had two adults and two young teenage boys. The hotel was perfectly relaxed and laid back. Everyone was very friendly and helpful always. We joked about the slow service but seriously, it was not slow, just laid back! If you are on vacation, don't be in a hurry. We loved eating at...

We stayed here for a week and hated to check out. The friendly employees really make the place. It is not a huge hotel which is a plus. The beach is beautiful and the grounds are lush with beautiful tropical foliage. The breakfast menu was varied and the food great each morning. My wife and I loved the location being...

There was a major mess up between our travel agents and this hotel, resulting in a very disappointing standard room which we refused to accept. We finally spent 2 nights in a suite - very nice - and 1 night in two of the refurbished rooms which was even better. The staff were really nice and most apologetic (they needed...

We were so happy that we chose this hotel for our beach stay in Costa Rica. We prefer small scale hotels to avoid crowds, and this was perfect. The pool setting right next to the beach is beautiful. They have happy hour each afternoon during sunset where you can get 2 for 1 cocktails, and this became our daily ritual....

Dear Carolyn, We are so happy that you enjyed your time at Bahía del Sol, from our hotel to the tours we recommended.

Stayed here for 3 nights to end an amazing trip to Pura Vida Costa Rica. Disappointing after some of the other places we stayed. Standard room clean but showing signs of wear particularly in the bathroom. Nowhere to sit outside your room unless you want to sit in a narrow walkway. Safe had been closed by previous guest.

Right on the beach on Playa Potrero. Absolutely beautiful setting. Beach itself isn't the prettiest I have seen, but that was ok, lots of nice beaches in the area. Loved that several restaurants and a small market for coke and snacks were within walking distance. Great air conditioner, wifi, beds and towel exchange. Only complaint was breakfast -- it was...

Rooms were very specious-we had deluxe, clean, quiet. Internet was terrible, so if you need to stay connected be prepared. Location right on the beach with plenty of lounge chairs and nice shade. Service was good. Breakfast was small. Beach was calm and very clean with good swimming. We would definitely stay here again. Overall very nice experience.
