Un îlot de calmePosted Jan 21, 2015
Cons: Matériel pour la plage: chaises et parasols disponibles aux clients.
Location: Une demi-heure en voiture du parc Manuel Antonio.
Quel endroit agréable! Une chambre impeccable, décoration «maritime» réussie, superbe jardin avec piscine à quelques pas de la plage côté pacifique avec son eau turquoise. Bernard le proprio-cuisinier nous prépare des plats typiquement français avec les produits locaux très frais. Avec sa femme Élisabeth, ils sont aux petits soins avec leurs hôtes.

Surpreendente!Posted Jan 4, 2015
Adoramos tudo: os donos pela sua receptividade, cordialidade e disponibilidade, os funcionários pela simpatia e agilidade, os quartos pelo tamanho e conforto, a localização em frente à praia, os jantares deliciosos, a piscina refrescante. Todas as instalações muito limpas, decoradas com muito bom gosto, roupas de cama e banho de ótima qualidade. Iríamos ficar 3 noites, acabamos ficando 5. Estávamos de carro, então foi fácil ir ao PN Manuel Antonio e também conhecer outras praias. Como sugestão: variar o café da manhã e oferecer uma estrutura para os hóspedes aproveitarem a praia que é muito bonita (guarda-sol e cadeiras).

Paradise by the OceanPosted Dec 18, 2014
Pros: It is clean, great service, close to the ocean and the French food is great. There are no phones or TV's in your room. Loved it.
Cons: eggs and meat for breakfast
Location: It takes 1-2 minutes to walk to the beach, normally no one is on the beach except you. The whole area is a nature preserve. You visit national parks.
One of the most beautiful places we have ever stayed. You can see ocean thru the trees from your room or patio and hear it all the time. Elisabeth and Bernard are wonderful owners that pay attention to every detail of the place and your stay to make sure it is your very best. They keep the hotel and grounds in perfect shape all the time. The rooms are clean and well maintained. You will love the patio area seating outside for breakfast and dinner. Here is the icing on the cake you get a great French Chef. We recommend you eat at the hotel every night. You will not find better food in the area. Please be sure to arrive during the day and do not drive at night unless you are use to small roads. There are people and cars all over the place. It is pitch black and hard to see at night, no road lines or lights in places. Oh, by the way the side roads are gravel, not paved like the main road. The pedestrian have the right of way all the time and they take it. Remember you are in a third world country but the drinking water sweet. Oh, the mountains are close by but you have to travel by gravel road use a 4x4 vehicle and plan on taking 4 to 6 hours. It is beautiful on top and you can see the ocean.

Escape and RelaxPosted Jun 17, 2014
Pros: Very personable an peaceful
Location: Manuel Antonio National Park
It was such a wonderful time. 9 days at Beso del Viento, and I want to be back there already. I loved the short walk to the beach, my hosts, and the food was amazing I dined in every night. The pool was a perfect place to take a siesta in the afternoon, the sounds of nature put me to bed easily. I loved the no shoe policy, in the guests living quarters (I hate sleeping with sand), the floors are a beautiful wood. The are no TV and no distractions except nature, that is exactly what I needed to get away from a hectic life. The B&B officially closes at 10 for the night, perfect to listen to the rain fall.

Great hotel in quiet location close to the beach.Posted May 5, 2014
We were there on a Friday PM/Saturday AM and were the only ones at the hotel. We also had the beach to ourselves both the afternoon we arrived and the next morning. We were situated close enough to the beach that we could hear the surf all night (windows open and AC off). Very gracious hosts, meticulous housekeeping with attention to detail. Since we were the only ones there they did not have an evening meal option available for us to purchase, but they did tell us that if we had called ahead they would have done so (we booked through Expedia so had no direct contact until we arrived.) We went to another hotel further on down the road and had a very good dinner - we were the only ones in the dining area though there were a few people at the bar in the next room. If you are looking for a quiet location that is very well maintained, this is it. The 5km stretch of road leading to this hotel is very rough, part is paved but with many potholes and the rest is rough stones/gravel.

French Getaway on a Costa Rican BeachPosted Apr 20, 2014
Pros: Location (could hear the waves from the porch) - with the long stretch of open beach. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated.
Cons: something more cozy suits me better
Location: ON THE BEACH! Close (30 mins) to Parque Nacional Manuel Antonio also.
Beso Del Viento is beautifully situated just steps from a 12+ km stretch of largely deserted beach. The hotel itself is carefully appointed in a French style, thanks to it's lovely proprietors. They are very proper and give guests attentive care, but are also careful to give guests privacy. The rooms do not all have AC and you will likely want it, unless you are really used to very warm weather for sleeping. the French dinners that they prepare at the on-site restaurant (only serves dinner and the included fruit and toast breakfast) looked wonderful (just not good fare for a vegetarian). I tend to prefer a more casual, homey environment, however if you are looking for something more refined and with a lot of privacy, this is your place!

Very secluded, on the beach hotel. Dinner, by reservation only, was excellent. Close to Manuel Antonio National Park without being in the center of it all.

French ComfortPosted Feb 4, 2014 on Hotels.com
This hotel is absolutely refreshing after spending plenty of nights in so-called 3-4 star accomodations. The inn is absolutely charming and the rooms are spacious and very very clean! It was the most comfortable bed and PILLOWS we've slept in Costa Rica (the beds and pillows in this country is surprisingly cheap and uncomfortable in this country)!! You are only a few meters away from Playa Seco (brown soft sand) that you can have all to yourself. Though this beach was not my favorite, since I prefer white sand. The city of Parrita does not have much to offer but it's only a 30 minute drive to Quepos/Manuel Antonio where the vibe and beaches are better. The only thing that needs improvement would be their breakfast. Because the owners are French, the breakfast is only some bread & jam, some fruits, smoothie and coffee/tea. the breakfast is quite simple and good though it does not really sustain you for the morning. I was often hungry again by 10am. I wish they would offer some eggs at least. Overall, we were absolutely delighted!! (+ they have a super nice dog named Lola).
