Amazing hotel!Posted Jan 11, 2013
Pros: The great view, the amazing food and the pool
Cons: The excessive time to take orders and serve food from restaurant
Location: Excellent location, near beach
Excelent hotel, over my expectations. Great view of Bahia Carrillo, excellent pool, amazing food and service. Near from beach, just 200 meters. Peaceful, quiet, no music or annoying noises. The best place ever!
Great view! Lovely pool and bar.Posted Jan 1, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel room was a little run down but great for our family of five. We got the family unit with two bedrooms--which was two double beds and a private bath in each of the adjoining rooms. The bathrooms are huge--I would recommend they install more hooks or rods for wet clothes. The town of Samara is a good place to go for meals and shopping. The food at the hotel is good but not very imaginative. This hotel is on a hill and has a wonderful view with a nice pool and lovely landscaped garden.

perfectly adequatePosted Sep 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
My husband and I stayed at this hotel for two nights. The place is perfectly reasonable and is rather secluded. The ocean view was amazing. The room is clean, the airconditionner is loud but works well and there was a safe in the room available for 3dollars per day. If you don't want to overspend and have a quiet vacation this place is great. The restaurant is overly priced for lunch and dinner but the food was good.

Magnificent SettingPosted May 24, 2012 on Hotels.com
Your other reviews commented about the steep hills or number of steps to climb. From the beach to the pool, bar and restaurant the max is 3 1/2 flights of stairs and one more to the office and rooms on top. The trade-off is magnificent views and nice breezes. Also, wherever one walks in Carrillo, there are the same hills. The really nice beach is about 400 meters away.

Beautiful views from rooms and poolPosted May 20, 2012 on Hotels.com
Playa Carrillo is one of the most beautiful, tranquil beaches we saw in Costa Rica and this is the place to stay to enjoy it. Simple but clean ocean-view rooms with private terraces overlooking the bay. The pool is the crown jewel with a 5-star view and great service.

My trip to Guanacaste Carrillo" s beach experiencePosted Mar 11, 2012
Pros: The amazing view of the Ocean and hills from the Hotel and the gorgeous garden.
Cons: The walking through the hills and stairs to go to the dinning area and pool in the extremely hot weather was a challenged.
Location: The transportation we reserved did not honored our voucher as a total payment. The cost $120 for 2 persons one way only.
The view on this Hotel is fantastic we were lucky and got a room looking to the Bay. The service excellent and clean. The alcoholic drinks at the beginning of the arrival were great but then changed how they prepare the drinks and desserts. At the end we felt left out. The waitresses got most involved cleaning the tables and did not check with us if we need anything else or everything was to our satisfaction. The bathroom in our room was leaking, then the air conditioner was not working properly and finally broke. We insisted to move to other room and they did. This Hotel is in a hill and a set of long stairs to get to dinning, bar., rooms and pool. It is not handicapped friendly or people with heart or lung problems. The weather extremely hot and humid for March, the Carrillo Beach Ocean was cloudy called "red Tye" the water was not clear as the pictures of the Ocean.

Poorly managed hotel with a stunning viewPosted Feb 27, 2012
Pros: The view, the beach and the turtle tour.
Cons: Our flooded bathroom floor.
Location: Great location, with a stunning view over Carrillo Beach.
Our hotel room was pretty basic. It could have been alright, if they had tried to make it nicer, but it didn't feel clean and we had a lot of bugs in the room. Every time we took a shower the bathroom floor got flooded, and it stayed flooded until the next day, when the cleaning staff came. The restaurant is expensive and it does not provide value for money. But the pool is nice, and the view is stunning. The beach is fantastic! We really enjoyed the turtle tour.
