We had the amazing good fortune to stay at El Sueno with Jose, Maria and the rest of the great staff there. We had a lovely two bedroom suite with kitchen and great beds. Very clean. There's a beautiful pool and shaded restaurant with hammocks where we spent a lot of our time hanging out.
But the best part of El Sueno Tropical is how welcoming Jose and his team made us feel. I went with my two children and my father. By the second evening, my kids were helping in the restaurant as waiters serving guests and we were sharing meals with the staff. They effortlessly arranged transportation and bookings for us, made us special drinks and treated us like family. On the last night, my children did a performance with two of the volunteers, Lillo and Maria with the rest of us as an audience. It really felt like we were part of one big family.
I can't recommend this place enough. We stayed at another place in Carrillo, but it didn't come close to El Sueno. I'd be back in a heartbeat!
