Pros: We had no trouble finding this property. Rate ($75/night) was pretty reasonable. Quaint design of grounds, rooms, and common areas. Close to beaches & restaurants - 5 to10 minute walk. Cons: Room was super-hot upon check-in and took hours to cool down. Bathroom remained muggy. Owners didn't interact much with us, and we didn't observe much interaction with other...

Dear John, Thank you so much for you review! So, when you arrived your room was hot, that's right but we know that the AC is cooling the room in few minutes and not hours...We unfortunately can't let the AC working during all the day, this is not ecologic and economically safe, but we understand your point of view. It's...

We stayed here in January. It is a very pleasant place that is tastefully decorated. Evidently the female owner is a gifted artist as evidenced by all the cute displays. We did not meet her on our visit which was disappointing as we had read the previous reviews that mentioned her. The patio area is a nice place to eat...

Thank you for your review, We are so sorry that you felt a bit disappointed...We will try to arrange these things to ameliorate! The breakfast is not only fruits, coffee and some bread...You have cereals, yogurts, tea, real orange juice, home made bread and marmelades. Maybe you would have some salt food but we chose to make a kind of...

Rooms incredibly clean....breakfasts perfect....advice for activities and setting up couldn't have been easier....help with "emergencies" (flight cancelled needed to rebook and quick trip to clinic-dehydration) eased difficult situations...hospitality off the charts (thanks Jerome and Stephanie)...local food options abundant and solid....beaches amazing (see photo below)...easy walk! Seeing a baby turtle hatch (at night) was an added bonus and snorkeling was fun!...

Quinta Esencia is a wonderful place ro stay. It really captures the flavor of "Pura Vida". Run by a couple who are French transplants, the two of them along with their family, have made it a welcoming place to stay. From the moment you arrive you find many uplifting signs and paintings on the property reminding you that life is...

Having got (literally) a little sick of Tamarindo I escaped here for a night before I left Costa Rica for some peace and quiet. Very accommodating, uniquely decorated treehouse / lodge style BnB with very comfortable room and everything you could possibly need. A short walk from the beautiful Playa Conchal. Excellent

This is small hotel owned by french family. Rooms and hotel is very nicely decorated. Terrace outside the rooms were very nice and cosy. Not far from ocean. Breakfast in the morning was on terrace but it could be better.

This place is super cute. Run by a French couple who have created a positive atmosphere with fat boys to chill on, cute hand-painted touches everywhere. Located a hop, skip and a jump from Brasilito beach and a few minutes drive up the road to Flamingo.

We spent 4 nights here and had a good experience. Stephanie and Jerome went out of their way to help set up our tours, make phone calls for us, and make us comfortable. The rooms are generally equipped and cute. I would have enjoyed more breakfast. I need protein! However, fresh bread, fruit, and orange juice were still delicious and...

This place is exactly what I expected from the enthusiastic description our friends made. Very special looking, fresh, out of the box, colourful. I couldn't get enough of the little pieces of art all around the place, colourful stones, frames, paintings. Indeed breakfast is great, again the most special from this trip. If one day I have my own B&B,...
