From the moment we arrived, disappointment defined our experience of Hotel Sugar Beach. The service at check in (throughout our stay) was uncaring, callous and all-business. A simple "Welcome" would have been appreciated, and repeated attempts to marshall some hospitality went unrequited. April is late in the dry season, so we were aware that lush grounds were not going to...

What a wonderful place to visit, both romantic and family-friendly! Our kids (ages 2 and 5) loved boogie boarding and playing in the pool. Su, the receptionist, made it easy to check out boards and sand toys. Our waiters made us welcome with humor and smiles (special shout out to Alfonso, Eric, Alejandro, Isaac and Caleb for excellent service! Thank...

My husband and I stayed at Sugar Beach Hotel for our honeymoon and it was wonderful! The beach is very private with only the hotel guests and there are also tidepools on the sides of the cove with tons of wildlife. The food was wonderful and the staff was very attentive. Alejandro was wonderful and gave us lots of special...

A stay at Sugar Beach is highly recommended. The setting is secluded and tranquil. The service is excellent and the food is as good as any we found in several highly rated restaurants. We spent eight days hiking the beach during morning and watching stunning sunsets on the beach while enjoying local cocktails. You can walk to adjoining beaches during...

Stunning views at sunset on lovely grounds and beach! And the nice surprise was the entertainment and the food. We went for a drink and to watch the sunset. After we looked at the menu, we decided to stay for dinner. Service was fabulous as was the food. Everything from our server to the hostess could not have been better....

Our room was perfect. We would book that same room again. The breakfast had the same choice each morning; a little more variety would be nice for the stay of 5 nights as we did. Staff were excellent. The beach was great for walking. We swam several times. "Animal life" was that of Costa Rica; fantastic! We were a couple...
