The staff was outstanding, everyone was very sweet and helpful. The pool was very nice and the grounds were extremely well-kept. My only issue was the beach. It was incredibly beautiful to look at, but the shore was very rocky, and sometimes it was difficult getting into the water. The upside is, if you want a private beach, this is as close to private as you can get, as it is difficult for the public to access. We had a rental car so we drove to Playa Conchal and Dantita Beach, both of which I found more desirable with water color and clarity. But Sugar Beach hotel is perfect for couples/honeymooners, as it is very beautiful and quiet, and we saw a lot of kids there was well. Low tide has nice little pools for toddlers

Love the location and the size of the hotel! It was absolutely what I was looking for which was to enjoy nature with the roaring sounds of the waves! Staff is outstanding! The food is delicious and there are places close by if you would like to adventure but we only needed to go to a sports bar to watch the final of the Copa America! Other than that we retrieved to the hotel as soon as possible! The only thing I would have loved to have known is to bring water shoes to get in the water because there are lots of rocks at certain parts. Other than that I had a wonderful time!
