Super friendly and welcoming staff from beginning to end of our stay! Beautiful property and comfortable, spacious room. Breakfast included was a bit small but good. Loved the sunset and bars/restaurants around the hotel as well. Highly recommend it overall!

This hotel is perfect for families with its oversized family suites with 2 bedroom/2 baths, kitchen, living room and huge patio! It can be a little noisy at night being close to clubs but I personally enjoyed the music on the nights it was playing. I also appreciated being easy walking distance to restaurants so the noise was the price for that proximity. The noise also isn’t bad inside so I think it would be nice for parents with sleeping little ones to enjoy the music and fresh air on the oversized patio while the kids are sleeping. It’s an excellent location with easy access to excursions and restaurants. It’s right on the beach with an incredible sunset view and offers comfy quality lunge chairs to enjoy the view. The beach is pretty clean but it is very dark sand. I personally don’t like that sand but it’s on many of the beaches in the area and it’s certainly nothing that the hotel can change. The do provide a shower by the beach to wash off the sand. The pool is absolutely lovely so that’s an option if you don’t want to swim in the ocean but still enjoy the view of it , which was magnificent! You can also visit the beaches with lighter sand as all beaches in CR are public and each of them is unique. The hotel main restaurant is very good. We ate there a few times and enjoyed each meal. A delicious complimentary breakfast is included and the staff is very accommodating if you have special dietary requests. We also enjoyed the spa services in the small treatment room hidden in the back of the property. It’s not a full spa but the services were excellent. I think there is no perfect hotel but for me this one met a lot of my requirements so I give it five stars. It’s really lovely without being too fancy and has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Great value too!

Loved the Bahia Del Sol in Patrero, Guanacasta, Costa Rica! Fantastic service, wonderful room, the food is incredible!, the bartenders I am so impressed with. They Ensure the drinks they are serving you are perfect. This hotel has the perfect location right on the beach with a view of the ocean and the sun sets are like those out of a magazine. We will be back, there's no doubt about it.

Would recommend staying here. Bahia Del Sol was a small hotel with tons of outdoor seating, a nice pool and pool bar, 2 restaurants, live music on some nights and a fantastic free breakfast. The room was spacious and comfortable. The area had some nice restaurants, breweries and cafes in very close walking distance. The beach itself could've been a little better but there was more because of the location and rain not the hotel. It was easy to get to other local beaches when we wanted.
