We stayed 2 nights with children (3 and 5) and had a great stay. Staff was very helpful and friendly, restaurant was good and the beach lovely. It is perfect for families with kids and there is even a playground 30m down the beach. We've been around to other beaches in the area and this place is definitely the most...

We did not stay here but the restaurant was worth coming to. Taco Tuesday night was so good. Breakfast yummy too. The staff in the restaurant were amazing and you are right on the ocean.

We are so glad we picked this place, as there were no hotels at this price right on the beach. The staff helped us arrange tours we were interested in and were very responsive to our needs. And no bugs at all! The pool was smaller than I expected, right by the reception desk, so wasn't used much. No problem,...

Very nice hotel and staff with Spanish influence. Clean and affordable, right on the beach. Great food and drinks, clean swimming pool and secure parking. Located right on the beach with a great walkway to other hotels and restaurants.

This is the best little beachfront hotel in Playa Hermosa! The rooms were recently renovated, and they looks great. This hotel has all the amenities, pool, bar, restaurant, and steps to the beach. If you are looking to stay away from the resorts, and save some cash El Velero Hotel is the place for you.

Hotel is right on the beach. Can't beat that location. They have a nice restaurant , a bit pricey it good food. Luis did a great job taking care of us. Thanks you! Hotel is in Playa Harmonia, about 25m from the Liberia airport. Great for the day of arrival or for a few days.

This hotel is immaculate and tastefully appointed. The bathrooms have been updated. The common areas are beautiful. Very good Wifi in rooms as well as common areas. Food and drinks are good and reasonably priced. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We could have used a mini-fridge in the room, but the bartenders were happy to refill our cooler...

Nice hotel with clean rooms. 30 meters from the beach. The restaurant in the hotel is a bit expensive. But there are some cheap nice restaurants near by. The hotel helped us get a good snorkeling deal for 30 bucks per person. Nice place to visit. Would rate Playa hermosa higher than other big beach towns like Tamarindo and Jaco....

It's a great location and you feel relaxed the moment you arrive.. I was surprised I had to pay for my cup of coffee in the morning. But I can recommend breakfast and dinner at "El Velero instead of going somewhere else.. In the room some lights and the TV didn't work when we arrived, and it wasn't fixed until...
