Perfect location and hotel for relaxation

Posted Aug 25, 2017
We were at Bahia Del Sol August 14-23- deals for this time frame were excellent since it's during 'rainy' or 'green season.' We were worried about that, but the weather was amazing. Thundershowers daily in the afternoons lasting a couple hours, sometimes more. Nothing that compromised our trip. The staff here are incredible- everyone from reception. to wait staff, maids, chefs, etc. are friendly, efficient and made the stay a pure joy. The location was optimal for us - the hotel is a smaller size, more intimate, quiet on a wonderful long beach that is not very busy at all. Other beaches in the area have more 'hawkers,' tourists, noise, etc. Sunsets here on the bay are out of this world. We were able to drive to many beaches both north and south on paved, easy roads within a few minutes. Many great restaurants nearby in walking distance. Daily included breakfast at the hotel is incredible - so much food, many options and delicious!- everything we ate at Nasu was very good. Daily happy hour 4:30-6:30 has 2-for-1 cocktails. There are many tours, activities and spa services you can book directly through the hotel, and a free yoga class that takes place many mornings. Some evenings had live music, which was lovely. Our room (Deluxe Superior) was one of the modern, renovated rooms and was fantastic. The beds are a little hard, but are brand new. I can' say enough good things about this property. We were already trying to figure out when we could come back, before we had even left.

I loved this beach side boutique hotel. Rooms are tucked away along lushly landscaped paths. Excellent open air restaurant and pool side bar. Staff was great. The heart of Playa Flamingo's restaurants and beach activities are a five minute drive along a paved but fairly winding road. Hotel is a short walk to several nearby restaurants.

Friendly clean hotel

Posted Jun 29, 2017
Food was amazing, staff was friendly and the resort is beautiful! The only con would be that it takes a four wheel drive vehicle to get there! About a 75 min drive from the airport, but worth it!

Thank you for your review, we are pleased that you enjoy the hotel and our staff. Regarding to how to get here there are two options, one through a dirt road and another completely paved. Make sure to take rute 21 and 155 and not 21/151 and 911. We hope you can visit us again.

Small resort right on beach

Posted Jun 27, 2017
Pros: Location right on the beach. Lawn chairs everywhere. Pool side bar with good drinks.
Cons: Cleanliness of the pool.
Everything was good with a few caveats. It is a small resort that shuts down at like 8pm. Which was okay. Good: GREAT location. Beautiful setting. Stunning sunsets. Bad things: Guaranteed to wake up with a few new mosquito bites every morning. Hated that. They sprayed for mosquitos right next to our room when my young children were in there. Clouds of billowing, stinky smoke, the room reeked of it. They tell me not to worry about it, the chemical is not harmful to humans. Hmm. Bird shizz practically everywhere on the manicured grass. Kind of gross and smelled bad when you were lying out on the deck chairs trying to enjoy the atmosphere. Then kids run through the shizz and track it into the pool. Ugh. Pool was kind of dirty. But I guess that is what chlorine is for, right? Floors of the rooms could get really dirty really quickly too. Leave your shoes outside the room! Toilets cannot flush used toilet paper. Throw that in the trash can. Yuck.

Romantic week on the beach

Posted Jun 12, 2017 on Hotels
This was my first time in Costa Rica and bahia del sol was an amazing introduction to the country. The room itself was clean, comfortable and modern and the grounds were beautiful. Being able to enjoy dinner while overlooking the ocean, or grab a drink at the swim up bar really made the location ideal. Bonus: you are given a refreshing cocktail on arrival. Would recommend to any couple looking to enjoy a romantic few days in Costa Rica. I would note that the WiFi was extremely spotty, but who really needs it while visiting CR?

Time off by the beach

Posted Jun 10, 2017
Pros: I loved the location and how close it was to the beach! I also enjoyed the yoga classes which was complimentary with our package.
Cons: The only thing would be to the small bugs that get inside the food if one leaves it in the open. We left all our food inside the fridge because of it.
Location: The hotel is very close to a lot of other cities and beaches which is always a plus! Lots of restaurants and activities to do too.
The Bahia was such an amazing hotel to spend a few days with family. It was so relaxing and the staff was super friendly and helpful. Breakfast was really good as well and the room was perfect to cook any meal whenever one wanted. Loved my morning walks and the scenery was fantastic!

Paradise...perfection

Posted Jun 5, 2017 on Hotels
Amazing! The staff was kind, helpful and attentive. From the fresh different daily fresh squeezed juice in the morning to the pool with a spectacular view...to the apartment for me and my family. Everyone raved about this hotel. It is a 5 star place...a hidden gem! Also loved the jungle atmosphere around the hotel grounds.
