Had an amazing stay! The staff were really nice, very clean, great facilities. The kids loved the pool, the ping-pong table and all the outdoor spaces. There was every kind of accommodation you could imagine and the best price we found in the Nicoya peninsula. Thanks again for everything!

We stayed in the apartment above the bar area. Our 2 college-aged children loved the open lounge area to hang out away from parents and visit with other travelers or just read and relax. We wanted a kitchen and it worked perfectly for our visit. Buying groceries and fixing our own food was easy. Then we could go to the...

We switched to this hotel from a place that we were unhappy with, and we couldn't have been more pleased. For ten dollars more a night, we felt like we were in the lap of luxury. The rooms were clean and comfortable. We had a kitchenette that we used to cook up some breakfasts. The grounds were filled with places...

Many thanks to Roberto and his sunny staff for sharing this piece of paradise with us for a week. It's so close to the beach you hear the waves crashing, and, because the place is on a rather quiet street, you get to see lots of iguanas and monkeys and birds at and around the hotel, especially in the morning....

Very clean and comfortable rooms and so close to the water you can hear the waves crashing from your room. Roberto is a very gracious host. He and his staff do their best to ensure a comfortable stay. When water was lost in the area, he made sure to supply everyone with jugs of water to hold them over until...

We didn't expect to stay at Rancho De La Playa but we were glad the man working at night answered the phone when we called at about 12:30 am. The house we were staying in (Casa Papaya) became infested with spiders and we could no longer stay there. The man working at night was very helpful. He showed us where...
