Beautiful & secluded

Hand fed the monkeys and watched my children's faces light up as the monkeys grabbed bananas right out of their hands! Very good food, friendly and helpful staff. Clean premises, walk to the beach. My kid's and I spent our finding treasures and digging up live sand dollars. Memories were made that will never be forgotten!

Place would have potential

Posted Jul 28, 2017
Pros: On the PRO side: - nice, remote location; - good a la carte food;
Cons: - Room Layout - Humidity Control - Cleanliness of chair cushions in restaurant - Breakfast - Correct advertising
Advertised as resort and great place to see animals, which is not the case. The price is too high when compared to 4 other hotels we have been during the same trip. All in all this place would have a good potential but it screams "cheap".

Totally recommended! A great cozy place where everyone will be happy to assist you. Nice rooms, AWESOME location and a clean and peaceful beach right in front. If you feel like enjoying the beach, not worrying about crowded crazy places and being close to many attractions then this is the place.

Beautiful secluded resort

Posted Jul 8, 2017 on Hotels
Clandestino Beach Resort was beautiful. The beach is incredible, great pool (although a hot tub would be nice) and the grounds and rooms were fantastic. Bring your translator though - the wait staff does not speak English all that well so ordering meals was a little bit of an adventure, but they were very nice and the food was good. I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a secluded, quiet vacation (we never left the grounds over 3 days). The nearby town of Parrita is a bit of a downer but again, the hotel was awesome.

Paradise!

Clandestino was a little piece of paradise right on the beach! We were greeted upon arrival by capuchin monkeys. The staff was incredibly accommodating and the food was spectacular!

Hi, thank you so much for booking with us. The beds are made of bamboo like all furniture in the hotel and sometimes they make a bit of noise. We will try as soon as possible to remedy this small inconvenience. Thank you very much for choosing us. Hoping to see you again in the future. Best of paradise.

This was our 2nd time at Clanestino. We love the location (3 minutes walking from your room to the beach), the pool is beautiful, and the staff is very friendly. The area of the hotel (Palo Sec Beach) seems a bit busier than when we were there two years ago, but the beach is still fairly private. Negatives...the beds are pretty hard and creaky, but each room offers a private patio with a lounge bed and swinging chair, which is nice. Also, the food at the restaurant isn't great and the menu is overpriced.There's a good local restaurant 10 minutes down the road called Mar y Sol that I would recommend over the hotel food.
