Pros: Breakfast buffe is excellent.
Cons: Rooms need to be refreshed.
Location: Close to airport, Hard Rock across the parking lot.
Hotel lobby, grounds and restaurant were excellent when room on the other hand was disappointing. Loud, dated air conditioning unit, room decore from '80, overall feeling of dirtiness and damp air in the room.

Amazing hotelPosted Dec 11, 2013
Pros: The hotel is in a great location away from all of the noise and distractions of a major tourist city. Located perfectly along a quiet beach road.
Location: The hotel is located in between two great fishing towns Quepos and Jaco. So many activities and sites to see nearby.
There was a total of three of us staying in two rooms for a fishing adventure and vacation. Hotel is right on the beach in Playa Palo Seco with amazing views and comfort. The staff are friendly and very attentive. Incredible pool next to the restaurant and bar. Great variety of cuisine and drinks. The rooms are within a tropical forest pathways and extremely comfortable. Rooms come with a porch with an insect screen, hammock, and swing chair. The best characteristic is the price. We were shocked how great of a hotel this is for the price and location. Will recommend this to all my friends and family.

ParadisePosted Dec 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
This resort was the best part of our trip. The staff, especially Diane, treated us wonderfully. We were able to feed wild monkeys some fruit on the property. There were few people on the beach and you could walk for miles without seeing more than 5 people. It was beautiful. The food was excellent, too. I will definitely return to this resort.

Beautiful hotel Paradise!Posted Nov 26, 2013
We spent a week there with our daughter who is studying in Costa Rica . It was bliss. Friendly helpful staff. Very very comfortable rooms . Lovely restaurant. The setting was incredible . The photos barely do it justice . The best sunsets ever. Wonderful for couples and families. The owner was delightful and charming . Her style pervaded the whole hotel . Highly recommend a visit . Hope to return again to paradise.

Tranquility!Posted Oct 1, 2013
Cons: The only negative was because of the electrical storms in the area resulted in the power going out twice in the middle of the night.
Location: It is off the main road, about 3-4 miles and secluded, with hardly any traffic going by. We saw crocs & monkeys on a tour of the mangrove nearby.
Very remote and private. The staff was pleasant and made our stay very enjoyable. The bartenders/servers were excellent and the food was very good. The owner, Denise, was very helpful with every question that we had for her. This hotel has a very nice pool and is a stone's throw away from a beach that we had all to ourselves. This was a vacation in every sense of the word and it was sad that it had to end.

A must stay destinationPosted Sep 8, 2013 on Hotels.com
If your thinking beach in Costa Rica you have to check out this hotel. Run by excellent attentive staff and a very nice French lady. Every aspect of his property is above average for the price. The grounds, the casitas, the pool and the restaurant where immaculate at all times with staff looking after every detail. But the location of this property s it's gem. It gets better. The beach is 40 steps away and what a beach. We stayed at 10 beaches in Costa Rica and NONE compare to Playas Palo Seco. Pristine doesn't describe it. Clean, no refuse or trees anywhere on the beach, just miles of grey sand and wonderful surf. This is a romantic , family or single getaway spot . It fits all types. You will not be disappointed..

Beautiful stay off the beaten pathPosted Aug 13, 2013
This hotel is on the beautiful beach Palo Seco. The road to the hotel is a long 8 km of gravel and pot holes, just another part of our CR adventure. The hotel is beautiful, rooms are very comfortable. We enjoyed both the pool and the beach daily. The breakfast offered with the room is the 'typical' meal of fresh fruits, eggs, rice and beans, bacon, toast, coffee and juice -- and was excellent. The restaurant was a bit expensive but generally good to excellent depending on the dish. They served a variety of dishes, satisfying our family of 4 on a regular basis. We ate dinner each night, as the rains came in the evening and it was dark, we preferred not to venture too far. 45 minutes to Manuel Antonio. We had no problem getting down there for our planned activities! We were happy to have found this oasis!
