We had an excellent time here -

You can't beat the beach location for the price. As stated previously, owners are on site, there is lush tropical foliage and it is right on the beach. The upgrade breakfast was awesome and this little place had a kitchennette with a bedroom. The door could be closed off to the bedroom so that the room stayed very cool at night. There is a restaurant and grocery store nearby - this place is a hidden gem! Would stay there again in a heartbeat - thoroughly enjoyed Costa Rica and this hotel.

Our get away

Posted Jun 9, 2014 on Hotels.com
This was a excellent choice for us to stay here. I have to tell you that Emelio and his wife were great! Great customer service as our hot water broke and he fixed it immediately. His wife will cook breakfast for you if you wish and believe me, it's better than any other restraunt around. The room is small but has everything you would need. It's not a "posh" place to stay but everything is functional and the service makes the experience top notch. I would definitely stay here again in the future. My husband surfs so he could wake up in the am and head right out front to surf. Thanks again Emelio for everything! See you in the future!!!

Great hotel, friendly staff, fantastic location

Posted May 18, 2014
La Dolce Vita was exactly what we were expecting: cute, beachy, and comfortable with friendly accommodating staff and an amazing view. We ended up with the best unit in the hotel, and ate our breakfast with an unobstructed view of the beach every morning. Cleaning was thorough, the air conditioner was powerful, and the full kitchen was a great feature. It is the perfect hotel to use as a home base for day trips, or to laze the day away on the beach or in the pool. We had a phenomenal trip and will be back as soon as possible!

Great beach location and quiet small town

Posted May 10, 2014 on Hotels.com
A real treat was that the breakfast was delivered to our balcony at the arranged hour we had asked for. Very nice breakfast. The manager was very nice. Good nearby restaurants for dinners and lunches and good grocery store, all within walking distance. Playa Estrillos Oeste is right past the pool and out the gated courtyard and is a wide sandy beach with rock outcropping on the north end near the turtle sanctuary and was guarded by a mermaid statue, La Sirena. Los Almendros Restaurant was a great choice with a laid back atmosphere and really fresh fish

Great Location

Posted Mar 15, 2014
Pros: Proximity to the beach, Free parking and wifi.
Cons: The curtains were very thin and I always felt like I could be watched from in my room.
Location: Beach, Bretts Surf shop and rental. SuperSol Market.
The location was my favorite thing about this hotel. It was relatively easy to find but parking was scarce (but well managed). The hotel is right on the beach and a 2min walk from the SuperSol Market. The room was clean and reminded me of living with my brothers 10 years ago. The safe was free to use and the owner was ready with the wifi password. Wifi was sort of slow but I was able to check emails and send a few texts. The owner was very friendly and spoke English well enough to help me. I opted to upgrade my breakfast for just $3 more and had flapjacks.

Love this place

Posted Feb 23, 2014
Not enough space to write all I would like to. Emilio and Jasmine will make your stay absolutely amazing with their hospitality. The hotel is average but clean and maintained well. Safe. Loved the pool. Great location. Fell in love with CR and made some new friends in Emilio and jasmine. Very lovely people. Hope to come back!

When I arrived the owners/managers were right there and carried my bags right to the room. It was very close to my car, which I prefer, if possible, at all hotels/motels. It wasn't the owners fault, but the electricity was out for over 2 hours in the whole town. The owners were very accommodating and gave me a candle until the electricity was restored. The beach is right in the back yard and it was a very convenient location, close to the market. I would definitely return.
