My husband and I went to Costa Rica to see the rainforests (me) and surf (my husband). Our stop at The Backyard was strictly for surfing. My husband enjoyed the waves while I relaxed on the beach.
However, the hotel was not quite what we expected. Our sliding glass window was cracked severely and patched with duct tape. The air-conditioner went out at 2 am and my husband had to find the security guard to come in and turn it back on. The room also had a strange smell.
The grounds of the hotel were pretty and there was a beautiful little pool. Although the hotel is a bit secluded, it is an easy walk up the beach to other hotels/restaurants. It is also a short taxi ride to Jaco, where there is more to see and do.
Although we enjoyed our stay overall, we probably will not stay at The Backyard during our next visit to Costa Rica.
