Alexander, the proprietor, is an excellent host and bounty of information. Issa, the receptionist, is friendly and has great recommendations for places to go and things to see. Our room was perfect. Large, bright, clean, and the bed was comfortable. The a/c worked like a charm and we had a screened in patio for enjoying an evening beverage. The pool...

The hotel was built by the Italian owner and is thoughtfully designed with pleasant rooms and some very nice touches. We stayed two night whilst touring and were very pleased with our choice. The gardens and pool were beautiful and wifi was strong and reliable. The hotel is situated just outside the rather tacky town of Playa de Coco and...

We knew we were back in CR when we awoke to the calls of the howler monkeys! This lovely hotel is located in a lush, private setting, close enough to beach, shopping and restaurants but still quiet. Felt very secure especially coming back late at night with friendly security guard to open the gate. Rooms are comfortable, cool and nicely...

I can't say enough about Alessander or his assistant Éla. We were so warmly welcomed. I loved the CLEAN, COOL, QUIET and COMFORTABLE rooms. The pool is super clean and nice, surrounded by trees swaying in the breeze, comfortable deck and chairs. There is covered parking. The eating area is open and breezy. DELICIOUS COFFEE! There is delicious fruit, toast,...

I stayed here for 2 nights to dive with Rich Coast diving. The hotel was recommended by Rich Coast. The hotel is beautiful with large rooms and quiet location and a good breakfast. It is about a 8 minute walk to town. The owner and manager were both very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here

The owner of this hotel couldn't be nicer. Before we arrived they arranged an airport taxi and allowed a friend to leave a lovely giftbag in our room. We stayed in a garden view room with a patio and quick walking distance to the pool and breakfast nook area. Due to unforeseen circumstances we ended up spending more time at...

This was our second stay at Hotel La Puerta del Sol. At the last minute our trip was delayed two days by bad weather in the states. I was so happy that Alessandro was able to accommodate our change in plans. For us AC, Wifi and hot water are a must have. The hotel has all three. On this trip...

The moment we arrived, Alejandro and Eni made us feel welcome. The hotel is small, clean and friendly. The rooms all face toward the courtyard garden and pool. A simple breakfast of fruit, eggs and toast along with good coffee is a lovely way to start the day. The morning we were diving, they had breakfast available early for us....
