Excellent small hotel right on the beach!

We loved this little hotel ! It is right on the beach and has lots of chairs and lounges to sit on. The staff was attentive, the rooms were clean, and the food on premise was excellent. Recommend for families, we traveled with two teens and the junior suite with two rooms and two bathrooms was perfect. I recommend getting a massage and if you do ask for Marcella, she knows what she’s doing.
Awesome Staff, Stay, and Food!

We haven’t even left our honeymoon yet and I wanted to write a review on Bahia Del Sol.
First the staff - they are super friendly, attentive, and willing to make your stay great. We got to know a few of them on a first name basis and enjoyed seeing everyone on a daily basis. There was one hiccup with a leak in our room but Diego (front desk) quickly helped us switch rooms and comped us a dinner which made this a non issue.
Food - we opted to add the “Romantic Dinner” to our package which was a beach front dinner as the sun set. This was unreal. I can’t think of a better dinner than being beach front as the sun sets. Wil was our server who we got to know from the bar. His service was great as was the amazing local food. Our breakfasts, bar drinks, and bar food were all superb.
Stay - our room was exactly what we needed. A big, comfortable bed, modern bathroom/shower, and daily service to refresh the sheets, towels, etc. We didn’t spend a ton of time here so this was perfect for us.
Lastly - spa. We opted to get a couples massage and after we finished immediately booked another. Paola and Michael were amazing and professional. Get the deep tissue!
Overall this was an amazing stay and the staff really made our honeymoon that much better. When we return to Costa Rica for an anniversary we know where we are staying!
Best Trip During COVID

The experience in Costa Rica was amazing. All thanks to FRANK and the staff they made it very memorable. Food was amazing 10/10. The view of beach was so BEAUTIFUL. I am also glad that Frank introduced us to Alex and his tours. Best trip that I’ve experienced in a long time. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !
Perfect smaller, up-scale property right on the beach!

Just what we needed--smaller-sized, moderately fancy beach-centric hotel and grounds with VERY good food, amenities, and staff. Loved being right on the beach and swimming out to the tiki-hut raft each morning. Lots of places to read, sunbathe, do yoga, work (if you must). Lots of birds on the grounds and in the tidal pond a few yards up the beach. Great staff, rooms were modern, comfortable, perfect. Did a "sunset cruise" on a catamaran with several other folks--a beautiful afternoon of snorkeling, music, and mojitos.

Our family LOVED this hotel! The 2 bedroom/2 bathroom suite was absolutely perfect for the 4 of us (2 adults and 2 older teens). Playa Potrero is a quieter location than Tamarindo beach but we preferred that because you don't have people trying to sell you souvenirs on the beach. The loungers under the trees overlooking the beach were perfect! If you don't want to eat at the hotel every night then there are a few restaurants in walking distance. We enjoyed Hemingways next door and La Forketta (a 12 minute walk). There's also a small grocery store in walking distance. The staff were all amazing! Diego, Andy, and Francisco at the front desk were extremely helpful. We arranged a COVID test ahead of time and, as we didn't have a car, they were able to get the doctor to come to the hotel. Very convenient! Roberto and Wes at the bar, and Jennifer in the restaurant were also great! In fact, all the staff are very friendly. We chose not to rent a car, but organized a few excursions with a tour company. The ATV tour was a hit! We spent several hours driving the back roads on ATVs, ending up inTamarindo for lunch. Because of the quieter location, it takes longer to get to excursions like volcanoes and hot springs. It might have been nice to have a car to get around and do some souvenir shopping but, be warned, Costa Rican driving rules are not always obvious to outsiders! 😂 The hotel really is as good as it looks on the website and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it or visit there again!
