What a special place! Our family of two adults, two children 12 and 15yrs and granny had a fantastic stay. Marina and Denis made us feel right at home from the start and this relationship lasted during our stay. They organised a fishing trip for us and even escorted us to the village so we didn't get lost. We were...

I just realized I forgot to add my review for our stay in August 2016... Hotel la Tranquilildad was the perfect location to end our amazing vacation in Costa Rica. The place is secluded and requires a 10 min drive on gravel road from Parrita. We stayed there for 5 nights with our 4 kids. We stayed in two family...

My sister and I stayed here initially because we were not able to find any lodging in Manuel Antonio. The grounds were beautiful. We had an ocean view room and we were able to enjoy our view from the balcony. The room was very basic. There was a refrigerator, stovetop burner, dishes and pots and pans. However, we used the...

Very basic accommodation with no restaurant facilities. That being said, if you are willing to drive over a very rough road for about 7 miles, the beach you get to say at is breath taking. We arrived after dark and questioned if we were in the right place as we seemed to drive forever to find the hotel. There were...

This hotel was such a great choice for our family. We rented the larger house and could keep an eye on our 4 boys but still have our separate room. Having a kitchen made breakfasts and some late dinner very convenient. Comfort is basic but the house was clean and functional. Towels and beach towels were provided and the house...

Great place to rest from the noisy and busy New York City. Sun, beach, sand, sky.... All you need for rest and peace. The beach area is very clean, no strangers at the hotel area. Marina is best owner who helps her guests with all their needs.

We visited as a family of 4 and stayed in the larger house. The property and the beach is amazing. Nothing beats taking 3-4 dogs to the river estuary in the morning! Nobody on the beach at all, sunsets to die for and lots of little places to relax on the property. It is very suitable for people looking for...

We stayed only one, very last night on our trip to Costa Rica and regretted not having more. Really peaceful place, hostess Marina is so welcoming. And the ocean - it is just magnificent at this place! If we had a chance, we would come back! audrone

My husband and I stayed at Tranquilidad for 2 nights. We loved it here! Marina was amazing and offered to pick us up from the Parrita Bus station and drive us to the hotel. IT was really nice of her to offer as it saved us some money. We bought grocery before we went to the hotel and really enjoyed...

“I am not sure how many of the rooms have an ocean view. It's probably best to request one.”

“All rooms are perfect. Pick the room depending on number travelers.”

“Cabanas are more central to the property and face the pool. If the rooms are full, you might want to stay further from the kitchen to avoid TV/guest noise. The house faces the back garden and the kitchen there gets quite hot. But you will have lots of privacy and room to spread out.”
