My wife and I were fortunate to find the newly-opened Monelaguna during the second of our recent three week vacation in Costa Rica after exploring the rain and cloud forest In Monteverde and the southern Pacific coast near Uvita and Dominical. We then settled in at the Montelaguna Boutique Hotel and quickly decided to spend the remaining 12 days of our holiday in Costa Rica there. It just made sense for a number of reasons.
First and foremost, we appreciated the relaxed, helpful and friendly presence of owners Georgia and Mario. Whether we needed advice on how to do excursions, put transportation in place for getting to the Liberia airport for our departure home to Canada, or book a reservation for a sumptuous meal at the hotel restaurant, we could always depend on Georgia and Mario. Physically, the hotel also has lots to offer. It’s tastefully constructed and furnished, with spacious rooms with comfortable, king sized beds and balconies, and a large pool with comfortable outdoor furniture and shaded areas.
The hotel’s location is a real plus, with easy, walking access to two beaches and two towns, Samara and Carillo. Samara has lots of good restaurants, a helpful information centre and spectacular sunsets. Playa Carillo is the best beach we found in Costa Rica…quiet, clean, and perfect for swimming and long walks. especially in the early mornings and late afternoons.
We’ll miss Georgia, Mario and their children. I have no hesitation in recommending the hotel for others to visit, relax and enjoy.
