This is one of our favorite places to stay in Costa Rica. The hotel and its restaurant are right on the beach, though well shaded; and the staff always friendly and most helpful. It's lovely to wake up to the sounds of birds in the nearby trees, sit on the 2nd floor veranda, and/or go down to the airy restaurant for coffee and breakfast. Definitely a place to unwind in complete comfort. The water is only yards away, and the hotel offers the use of their beach chairs. When you get tired of swimming and/or beach walking or otherwise need a refreshment, they're right there. The hotel even arranged for a taxi to meet us at the LIR airport after our 10pm arrival there. This was our 4th time staying at this fine place and I hope we'll have many more opportunities.

We aren't chain hotel or resort people as we want to get to know the real people of the areas new to us. El Velero was just great. We found all of the staff to be friendly and personable. They were always attentive and Luis was particularly helpful even if we never did get on a catamaran. The food was great--we were there to enjoy both BBQ and Taco nights. The hotel though older was clean and comfortable. The area outside had a nice, clean pool as well as plenty of seating. We enjoyed most of our time sitting there watching the ocean, the boats, the people going by, the sight and noises of the various "wild" life. A clear indication that they served amazing food for a good price was shown by the people not staying at the hotel who, while walking the beach, would stop

Gabby at the reception desk was so helpful and her English was great. There were (2) waiters, both named Luis. Excellent service and food was awesome. Rooms are practical and comfortable. Well worth the affordable price.

The food is very good and reasonably priced. The wait staff is friendly, courteous, and efficient. The location and view are unbeatable. Great for any meal. It is right on the beach. I have been going there for 15 years and never been disappointed.

Super cheap for right up against the beach. Restaurant on premise with amazing staff and good Costa Rican food. Great air conditioning and decent WiFi. Clean hotel rooms considering you’re right next to the beach. Loved staying here and would for sure stay again!
