For our vacation to Costa Rica, we were looking for something peaceful and relaxing. Quinta Esencia was the perfect place to stay and more. The owners worked with us prior to arrival and had everything ready for us when we arrived. Stephanie and Jerome were amazing hosts, and their new addition, a puppy named Ocho, made our stay more than what we could have hoped for. The room was good size, with a king size bed, clean bathroom and air conditioning. I think we might have turned the TV once to watch some of the World Cup because the location made you want to sit outside and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.
The B&B itself is tucked away from the main road and has a beautiful deck that is shaded and with outdoor seating. I often read in the morning on the deck and it was amazing. The owners set up a table, right outside of your room, and a self-service breakfast. Fresh fruit, juice and an array of breads and cereals, it really is the right amount of food to start your day and it is fresh and the taste of Costa Rica. There is a small pool (more like a sitting pool) with a hammock next to it.
The restaurant that is located just below the B&B is equally as good. It's an Italian based menu, with a french chef in Costa Rica ... may sound a little mixed but the food speaks for itself. We had brought some fish filets from a fishing trip and asked the chef if he could cook them for us. He did and provided us with an EXCELLENT meal (curry sauce on our fish was so good!).
As others have mentioned, just a short 5 min walk to Brasilito beach, and another 10-15 minutes along the water will bring you to the Beach Conchal. The local restaurants may not have the most appealing exteriors, but the food is well worth a stop in! All of the locals were friendly and we really enjoyed being in an area that was not overrun by tourists or tacky tourist attractions. It was a relaxing and fun place to be.
