My husband and I recently visited Costa Rica for our first time. We wanted to see both coasts, so we first headed to Hotel Playa Bonita for two nights. Getting there from San Jose Airport was a bit of an adventure due to major road construction on highway 32 (Nov 2021). The hotel was easy to find. Don't get discouraged as you're driving through construction and past the shipping harbor. It's great once you arrive! Check-in at the hotel was a breeze. We had a great room! Third (top) floor with a window facing the beach. The room was clean and the AC worked great. The room reminded us of many of the properties we stay at when visiting Baja California, Mexico. We're from San Diego, CA and drive down to Baja quite frequently. The room has little quirks that are familiar to us and our style of travel, but may seem a bit "rough around the edges" for other travelers. Overall, the room was GREAT! Loved our stay! Would recommend to most friends and family. The hotel restaurant and bar have a great open view of Playa Bonita. We loved the breakfast that was included with our stay. We also ate dinner both nights at the hotel restaurant. We watched surfers while eating breakfast and enjoyed the sunset while eating dinner. There are rocks and tidepools just below the hotel. We spotted striped eels and red sea stars in the pools. To get to the beach you can either walk along the road for 5 minutes, or carefully walk on the rocks to get to the sandy beach. The water is warm and great for swimming. Keep an eye on your stuff, or just leave everything in your room at the hotel. The hotel doesn't have a store/market, but there's a large market at the beach just 0.2 miles from the hotel. The hotel has a pool, which we did not use, but saw people swimming in it during our stay. All-in-all: We loved our stay at Hotel Playa Bonita. We loved that there we hardly any Americans there (we may have been the only ones). Playa Bonita is a great hub for visiting Cahuita National Park where we saw monkeys, racoons, sloth and iguana.

I stayed there a few times. One time I left over 500 $ in the room. The staff found it and returned it to me in total honesty. Just for that I give them a 20 if I could. Rooms are good. Food is excellent. But the best part is the people who work there and run it. You go there and you may be sure you are in great hands. I have only good to say about them. It was an honor to get to know the staff.

We arrived and our booking was cancelled, they said they received a cancellation request from hotel beds (expedia) 2 days after my reservation, but I had no email from the cancellation. When I called Expedia they said the hotel send a message telling that they were closing the property and that was the reason of cancellation. A few minutes later while we were trying to find another place to stay, the hotel called and said they had a room available, but that we needed to do the reservation directly….that it was not available vía expedía, honestly a shame, just for around ¢40.000 more. Expedía assisted us to move to another place in town, when we arrived the receptionist told us that we were the 3rd customer from the week that had the same situation. So basically what they do is that they cancel your reservation for you to buy a direct room to them. If you don’t want to pay your % to an OTA, don’t have it available for reservations

We came in very late at night/early morning so we worked it out in advance that the security guard would have our key. He was very nice, and walked us to our room with a flashlight where we all promptly passed out. We had trouble making our reservations through hotels.com so we had to pay for our kids stay with us the next morning, and also worked this out prior to arrival. They said it would be $20 extra, which was fair. Unfortunately when it came time to settle up, they decided our kids were adults and wanted to charge $50. The room was $53 and if we were going to pay that much, we would have just gotten two rooms. I had to pitch a mini-fit and point out our daughter was only 13, so definitely not an adult, and they agreed to the previously agreed upon rate. The room was clean and the food was good. The beach was pretty. We were only there for 9 hours total. We really appreciate them letting us in at 1AM!

Took so long 4 food to come. My rice was a mix of rise + oil awful. I arrived with a suitcase + the other hand my toodler no one help me to go to the 2nd floor ....no elevator. No customer service. The water pressure doesnt work, so if you hope to take a shower, paste yourself at the wall to get the water.

This trip did not include fancy hotels, 5-star restaurants, etc. It was a trip to learn about family heritage and celebrate the local culture. This hotel was AMAZING for the price. On the beach with the sound of waves crashing against the rocks at night and amazing food at the adjoining restaurant. Best tres leche cake I’ve ever tasted!

My wife and i enjoyed a lunch at this reaturant. Very nice view of the beach and bay. The food was very good and seasoned just right. I found the prices a little higher than expected but not unreasonable. This review is for the resturant only as we did not stay at the hotel hotel itself.

Although the staff was very friendly and the food was good, the hotel was run down. A lot of broken items, nearly no light in the rooms. When you switched on the watercooker, the lamps were more or less out! In principal it was not too dirty. When you have to be in Moin, you will manage but it is very basic.

We stayed for just one night but they let us leave our car for a few days and helped greatly with trip planning. Jeremy in particular was extremely helpful. Decent food, great rum! Good value for a place right on the beachfront. Certainly the place to stay in Playa Bonita before you head off to Tortuguero national park.
