Reviewed 5 May 2014

We stayed at the Conchal Hotel in January 2014 and were very pleasantly surprised. The accommodations were more than adequate - everything was clean, everything worked and sitting outside the room by the pool for a drink was a small bit of heaven. We cannot say too many good things about Simon and Hilda. We were travelling for the first time since my wife lost almost all her sight and Simon and Hilda could not have done more to ensure that we enjoyed our time with them and that my wife could participate fully and safely in everything that was offered. But the piece de resistance was the restaurant with Hilda and her staff's food. We both agreed that we could not remember ever having eaten better food, more nicely prepared anywhere else in the world. We will be back!!!

Room Tip: As far as we could tell, all the rooms were good although it is conceivable the ones nearest the roa...

Sorry for the late review, had troubles with my trip advisor account??

So this was our 4th year to Costa Rica and 3rd time at Hotel Conchal. It was my sister in law's 50th birthday. We started in Osa and worked our way up where we always end our last week of our vacation at Hotel Conchal. As we all said "we saved the best for last"

Before we arrived in Costa Rica, we were communicating with Simon and Hilda on doing something special for my sister in law (Hotel Conchal is her favorite as well). We had asked if would be possible to have a nice dinner and possibly have Charlie Lopez (very talented musician) come and play that night. They said not to worry, we will take care of everything!

During our entire trip my wife, I and brother in law couldn't wait to arrive at the Hotel, because we knew how fantastic it was going be!

When we arrived onto the property we saw Simon & Hilda, the staff and it was like returning home and seeing family. We were smiles from ear to ear! We were shown to our room, we always get the same room. It was nice to see the hotel rebuilt after the fire they had the year before. A lot of work and love was put into the rebuilding, and it still felt like HOME!

The night of the birthday dinner we made our way up to the restaurant and were seated by Hilda. She brought out the red wine she had tucked away and the party began.

The restaurant was full, Carlos played some awesome music, people were dancing and singing along, it was just fantastic!

The food was amazing as usual, a big Thank you to Hilda and the ladies in the kitchen. After dinner Hilda, brought out the Champagne, Carlos had just finished his set and we all sat at eh table and enjoyed each others company into the late hours. (sorry Hilda & Simon for keep you up)☺ I didn't want the evening to end. Thank you for a very memorable night, one we will never forget and still talk about at dinners when Sylvie & Bernard come over for dinner. I've jumped on the Chilean wine band wagon!☺

The food is the best we've had in Costa Rica, I always left the table with food sitting just below my tonsils, the service, the friendly staff, the coffee in the morning (BTW we bought an extra suitcase to bring back 26lbs of coffee)☺ I look forward to getting up at 5:00 am to drink my coffee!

Thank you for everything that you and your staff have done to make our stays so memorable.

Not only have we made great friends with Hilda, Simon and the staff, we have another family!

We wish you continued success and we already started to look forward to our next visit.

Please give all the best to everyone, we'll bring more Maple Syrup and suckers next year for everyone.

Health & Happines

Nick & Johanne

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are good!

We have been to CR 9 times over the years and 3 times in the Playa Conchal area. We really enjoy waterfront dining experiences and I could write for days about the unique and diverse dining experiences from Tamarindo to Las Casilitis.

Last night was an enjoyable and pricey (party of 7) dining experience at the Conchal Hotel. Others have shared their positive experiences at the hotel so i won't discuss, didn't stay there, but friends have and agree with all the positive reviews. We stay at Reserva Conchal at a friends condo, nice to have friends here!! :-)

The restaurant experience last night was extraordinary; with Hilda one of the proprietors as our host. We were a party of 7, and started with appetizers and a bottle vino blanco and vino rojo, both excellent vintages and from a wonderful wine country, Chile. The cost was under $20 US.
Others had mojitoes to provide balance and diversity. :-)

The main courses were filling and very fresh. The fish: sea bass, mahi mahi, were just off the boat and my crusted tuna was exceptional but not sure of its origin. All vegetables were just off the farm and prepared with care and experience.

There is a local guitar player and singer who was delightful and personable.

It was a farewell dinner for many of the group, so we went "all out" the costs for 7 including tip and taxes which approximates 23% of the cost of the meal was $260, You could easily dine with just the main meal for $10-20/ person.

The restaurant is just before the single lane "bridge" into Playa Brasilita from Playa Conchal.

DON'T MISS THIS DINING EXPERIENCE!!

What a wonderful little hotel in an amazing part of Costa Rica!! Simon and Hilda are lovely hosts who will do what they can to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms were spacious and clean and the bed comfortable. There is a great restaurant on the premises where you can enjoy beautiful steaks and fresh seafood. We absolutely loved this place and would definitely come back. Thank you Simon and Hilda!!! What a pleasure it was!!

My husband and I stayed here at the beginning of December. There are many great things about this hotel. The room was very clean, Hilda and Simon were so helpful, and the location was a short walk to the beach. We prefer to stay at smaller, family run places when we travel, and this has become one of our favorites. We planned to stay just three nights before we returned home, but due to a bad ice storm in Dallas, we were delayed four extra nights. This was a great place to be "stranded". Simon and Hilda were so kind by helping us rearrange our travel plans, and staying in touch back home(this was the first time we left our 18 month old for more than 2 nights!). We look forward to going back and seeing the completed area that was under construction while we were there.

We stayed here 6 nights Feb 2014 / it could not have been better. From the minute you enter the property, the owners greet you and show you to your room - the rooms are really wonderful , spacious and very clean. The attention to detail and customer service here can be seen everyday. The pool is clean and refreshing - a short walk to town and the beaches - it is in a perfect location. Everybody that works here is really wonderful !! We will return soon with others..

First of all, the welcoming with great fruit juice was appreciated in that very warm day !
We loved the nice ambiance : display of rooms around the pool, nice restaurant at the second floor, bright colors of the walls and decorations.
The food we ordered for lunch was the best of our trip to Costa Rica : excellent salads with great vinaigrette !
The room was confortable, clean and at a good price !
We enjoyed having quick access to other services in Brasilito, and most of all : the Conchal playa !!!
