This was the best vacation ever for relaxation! Our first time to Costa Rica. Mike and Irma were the perfect hosts. Mike picked us up the airport and brought us to his B & B in Potrero, explaining the local culture and history, along the way. The apartment was amazing, with spectacular views! Breakfast was delicious, and filling. The fruit...

Mike's place was awesome! The view was incredible, breakfast was amazing, and service was excellent! We truly enjoyed our stay there! We did the catamaran cruise and had a blast. Mike helped set it up and it was very positive experience.

Soooooo glad you had a great time with us. One of our most common comments is how liberating and stress-free life can be here in the tropics. People can actually leave their day-to-day life behind and really experience their stress melting away. After a few days your body begins to re-set itself and most people can sense the physical and...

We enjoyed everything about our stay at this B&B: spacious and functional room with a magnificent view of the ocean (even from the shower!), delicious hearty breakfasts with local treats, and an unbeatable location - right on the beach. The hosts Mike and Irma love and know Playa Potrero area and Costa Rica in general, so they gave us some...

Maria and Michael, We are so happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I must admit, you both now hold the record for ocean swims. You averaged 3 to 4 dips in the ocean every day! Amazing. And the fact that we had some of the best sunsets with so many colors in the clouds and reflections on the...

I can't express enough how amazing Mike and Irma (owners of Twin Dolphins B&B) were during our one week stay. Me, my husband and a couple friend of ours stayed in their penthouse room which was very adequate space for us. We had our own patio with a beautiful view of the beach right at our front door basically. The...

Your words are very kind. You four were perfect examples of people who come as strangers and leave us as friends. We felt close to you and your enthusiasm for Costa Rica, your genuine interest in this beautiful culture and your thoughtful questions to learn more. Costa Rica can get into your spirit, into your blood. This obviously happened with...

One of the most outstanding experiences of our lives. The b&b lived up to all of our expectations and then some. Mike and Irma were fantastic and extremely hospitable. The Guachipelin Hacienda excursion was awesome. The food at Las Brisas and music and drinks at El Castillo (both within walking distance) did not disappoint. Every morning breakfast was served on...

Hey Chad and Jessie, we have many guests staying with us celebrating birthdays, anniversaries and honeymoons...with several weddings thrown in.

This house is located on the beach. Mike and Irma are great hosts. The beach is long and beautiful. Very tranquil and relaxing. The penthouse suit has awesome views and the bed is very comfortable. This is 5 star accommodation. We plan to visit again in August.

What a wonderful place to stay. This B&B is perfectly located on the beach, which felt like it was a private beach just for us! It is walking distance from restaurants, the market, and other beaches.
