My husband and I visited Hotel Bula Bula for 10 days in January, but the wonderful memories are still fresh in our minds. This was our fifth year in a row as returned guests. If you enjoy all inclusive hotels with swim up bars, Hotel Bula Bula is not for you. If you enjoy going to the beach and find yourself tripping over the sunbathers to find a place to lay your towel, Hotel Bula Bula is not for you. If you want to experience serenity, get in tune with your inner self, watch the beautiful sunset disappear every evening on the beach, mingle with others who come from all parts of the world, who are looking for the same experience, this hotel may be for you. Granted, "stuff" may happen once in awhile that you're not accustomed to in the hurry up, get it done USA, but hey, you're in Costa Rica!! I can't begin to list all of the positive attributes of the owners, Wally and Todd, and their entire staff. Their restaurant, The Great Waltinis, kicks out some awesome dishes. On Monday evenings, they host a Mexican Buffet that is to die for. Wally hand makes the entire spread, and he takes great pride in seeing his customers enjoy his tasteful culinary dishes. As for us, we are already planning our next visit to Playa Grande and Hotel Bula Bula. We just returned from a stay in another Central America country, and we thought this may be the place to knock Bula Bula off its perch as our favorite place to vacation. Close, but no. Hotel Bula Bula rules!
