We stayed at Rancho Corcovado for 3 nights. It is a small place run by a very nice Tico family. Mario, the owner and his children and even some grandchildren help out with things. The rooms are fairly basic, but very clean. The location is right off the beach and the views from just outside the room are fantastic. They treat you like family - asking what your food preferences and issues are, showing you around, and even being invited to play ball with the grandchildren. The beach is right there and is very uncrowded and the water is very nice for swimming. We took a couple of tours which were part of a package - a trip to Cano Island for snorkeling and dolphin watchin one day, and a trip into Corcovado National Park and a day of hiking and watching wildlife. Even just sitting on the beach or sitting outside our room and looking at the bay and birds and sunsets was great.
The whole area was the highlight of our trip to Costa Rica.
A heads up - this is not a good destination for people with disabilities. Many activities require wet water boarding on a boat and there are stairs and walking on trails. Some other hotels may be a little better for that, but this whole area is still a bit rough.
