Amazing property with a huge pool surrounded by about a dozen rooms. Every room has a pool view. Pool table and a bar for cocktails at the pool. Lots of places to relax. They organize tours for you that pick you up at the hotel. The nicest beach in Costa Rica is about a 5 min walk. Rooms are very clean and spacious. 2 queen beds per room. Great value for the price. Wish I could stay longer

This place is great. Clean, quiet, relaxing and great staff. We had 12 days at the Hacienda Del Mar, but I wish it was more. The hotel is clean and well designed. All rooms face the HUGE pool and the bar and restaurant are central located to every room as well. The staff is attentive and the grounds well kept. Rooms have A/C, WiFi, cable T.V. And hot water. short walk to an amazing beach, and breakfast is included. Great restaurant near by (Colibrí) has fresh tuna steaks on thursdays. Ask for Nick at the hotel, he can tell where to for all the best local activities like surfing, kayaking, snorkel, etc. We will be coming back 100%

The rating of 3 is the average of a 4 for the place and a 1 for service and hospitality. The hotel is nice, all rooms are arranged around a large pool, anf we could even see howler monkeys from the veranda. What really spoilt our stay was the lack of any hospitality. When we arrived on a Sunday, the women at the reception barely said a word when showing us our room. OK, we thought, she was the temp for the weekend. However, it turned out that no one was interested in the guests. On the opposite, we had to ask for (poor) room service or find someone to serve us breakfast. And this was low season, the hotel was almost empty. And why do they play bad music loud, even when nobody is in the "restaurant", which was apparently closed anyway. If they don't like guests, they shouldn't run a hotel.

We are sorry you were not 100% satisfied with our hotel. Your desired amount of privacy is very important to us. we go to great lengths to ensure the amount of contact you have with us meets YOUR needs, not ours Check in is at 2pm so your arrival at 8am was not expected. The girl who was working In the morning does not speak English. Another person, who also does not speak English, wrote our breakfast hours on a piece of paper for you. You arrived for breakfast 1/2 hour early so the hotel owner prepared a free fresh fruit platter for you while you waited. We will bring meals or drinks to your room if requested but nominally we do not offer room service. Again , we are sorry you were less that fully satisfied with our hotel. We wish you good travels Nick dailey

The beds are like most in Costa Rica, terrible, but clean. The pool is beautiful with a nice view of the pasture. It's near a wildlife reserve and you can see fun native animals. They have a bar and a very nice staff. This is where my husband and I take our family on every Costa Rica trip we go on.

A new owner, from America who is all about customer service. I wrote a horrible review about this place not so long ago. Amazing what a hands on owner can do. A short walk to the beach, however, the beach store is closed where you get your beer is closed. Go in and ask for the owner Nick and I am sure he will take you to the store in Carrillo to load up your cooler and a ride to the beach. To me the restaurant needs a little more work, food not very sexy but good. For as bad as I blasted this place, now it is my go to...
