When my husband and I drove into Pavones, it was late afternoon, and we were hungry, tired, and considerably dirty. We wanted to find a clean, comfortable, and affordable place before the sun went down, and luckily, we found exactly what we were looking for and even a little more at Il Delfino.

We rented a private room. It was simple and clean, but most importantly, it had a strong fan and a super comfortable bed. First thing in the morning, we walked three minutes to the wave to surf. During the day, we sat out on our private patio using the internet--they have a super strong wifi signal--and sipping cervezas before taking a nap in the hammock. Needless to say, we were loving life.

The surrounding area is gorgeous. There's tropical plants, flowers, and flocks of red macaws flying by. There's also a great boutique within Il Delfinos grounds called La Sirena that sells Brazilian bikinis and other cute ladies sun wear.

Finally, my FAVORITE part about staying there was the delicious pizza!! Elisabeta, the Italian woman who runs this place, makes the BEST PIZZA IN COSTA RICA! It's true Italian pizza. IT'S HUGE. And the pizzeria is literally inside the grounds. She offers other dishes as well that looked mighty tasty, but honestly, it was really hard not to order the pizza every night for the 10 nights we stayed. We did manage to eat the Surfer's Breakfast though, and it was great bang for buck as well.

Lastly, Elisabeta was an awesome hostess, and the rest of the staff was very helpful as well. Since we stayed so long, we had our laundry done by the staff for a very reasonable price.

We highly recommend Il Delfino!!!
