“Stay here!!!”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

A friend and I stayed here for almost 2 weeks and loved it! The hotel is off the beaten path. Quiet location with not a lot of tourists around. About a min or two walk from the beach. I can't say enough about the staff. They were very accommodating. You ask for anything at all and they will make it happen! The food was amazing! We have zero complaints. Also, there is a small old house on the beach that is a family owned restaurant. Best food in Costa Rica! We ate civiche there every day, and it was cheap. When I go back to Costa Rica I will definitely stay here!
I would recommend renting a car. Because of the location just makes it easier unless you just want to take a cab. The staff will arrange either for you.

Room Tip: I recommend the rooms on the second floor right above the pool. It s a nice view and you get your ow...

After leaving San Jose, this place was heaven! We had a one bedroom, and I loved having access to a kitchen. The bed was comfortable and the place was very clean. The grounds were so well maintained. The birds and holwer monkeys were daily visitors! My kids LOVED the pool and the hammock on our patio. All employees of the hotel were friendly, and the front desk was helpful in suggesting ideas to keep my kids entertained (fishing, zip-lining). My daughter commented as we were leaving, "If you asked me to come back here I would in a second!" I couldn't agree more!

Walk a little and save a lot on accommodations in this boutique style, small, family owned hotel. The hotel is about 200 yards from the beach at Playa Hermosa, directly behind another of our favorite hotels, Bosque del Mar that sits directly on the beach and also where the scuba diving shop we use is located. The superior rooms in the main building are my favorite. Spacious rooms with two double beds on the second floor. At the other end of the pool are the standard rooms that are small with one double or two twin beds. In back are the Jr. Suites, condos and apartments with beautiful grounds and private swimming pools, perfect for families and groups. We use this property a lot in our packages as it's a great value and works for most budgets. The restaurant is fantastic, little pricey but really good food and the pepper steak is to die for. Bill Beard's has daily scuba diving, sport fishing, sailing, snorkeling and all the adventure tours in the area directly from the hotel. There are many more restaurants within a short walking distance.
The hotel is owned by Canadians that have been in Costa Rica over 30 years and are wonderful folks to know.

Room Tip: The superior rooms in the main building upstairs over the reception are unusually large and comforta...

My boyfriend and I were booked to stay here for 3 nights. We really enjoyed the layout, the staff were very friendly and my goodness, the food was incredible! I would DEFINITELY suggest you visit for dinner if you are in the area but to stay the night, takes a real deep sleeper. Both of us are but we had to cut our stay short unfortunately due to the fact that our bed was incredibly uncomfortable. Granted we cant be sure if this is the case in all rooms (and I don't remember our room number :( ). Also as mentioned in the title, we wanted to enjoy a cocktail while lounging in the main pool, but they were CRAZY expensive. If you do stay here, make sure to check out the pool on the other side of the property, by the condos... very secluded and romantic!

Room Tip: Not sure of the room number but our room was the first room on the first floor on the far side of th...

We have stayed here at this property in the condos several times. They have everything you need, are always clean, and the grounds are beautifully maintained. The staff is so friendly and helpful. We have sent several people here and they have all been extremely happy. With a family it is nice to have the space and kitchen to use. I highly recommend it!!!

Just came back and stayed in a 2 bedroom suite El Oasis with our two kids 8 & 9. Having a full kitchen and room to spread out was great. The two pools were both awesome and the staff at Villa Del Sueno was incredible. They are really a 5 star staff without a doubt.

Room Tip: Families should look at the 2 bedroom suites on the el oasis side.
