Here we are in the lap of luxury. Off season is perfect for our first trip to CR. Not too hot. Rained pretty hard sometimes but boy this place is amazing. Can't get better than #10. Small concrete walkway from the Lanai down to the pool and another twenty feet to the ocean. THERE IS NO ONE ELSE HERE. ITS...

We just came from a great vacation at Bahia Pez Vela. We stayed at Villa #10. Villa #10 is a 3 bedroom 2 1/2 bathroom beach front unit. The unit is modern, clean, well stocked and with plenty of space for a family. It is really Beach Front, and you are steps from the Ocean with great views from 2...

So this review is for the beach and restaurant only. The ceviche is the BEST, possibly that Ive ever had. And Ive many a ceviche. They are not stingy with alcohol, drinks are STRONG. For a hotel, the prices are reasonable. Though the beach is small and seems private, the beach is actual a public space and you don't have...

Wow. We stayed in Villa Ginger (#2). It's literally 40 steps to the beach and the same to the pool. This isn't your typical resort. It's 40 or so condos with great views and a beach. The beach is AWESOME. One of the best around. It's basically private since there are two guard gates to go through. Ocotal Beach is...

This resort is located at the south end of Playa Ocotal. It has a beautiful private beach, a nice swimming pool, and an onsite restaurant/bar. I really enjoyed staying here, but I do wish we had a car. It's quite far out of the way to get to anywhere (restaurants, shopping, attractions). Great quiet place if you want to relax....

Lucky for us were staying for a week. The unit is large, very comfortable, and right on the beach. We're an extended family of 6 and there is space and enough bathrooms for us. The view is beautiful and has stairs down to the beach. The restaurant is two units away and easy to walk to, even in the dark....

We stayed for four nights in #15. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed. They should put more effort into the directions to the resort. It was very frustrating to find.
