This place is amazing and that starts at the parkinglot where we were being welcomed by our name. Checking in was friendly and with a cocktail that made us feel very welcome. Than they brought us to our room. Calling it a room is selling it short; it was beautiful, stylish and had everything we could ask for. The view...

Had a bit of turbulence getting there, but once we arrived we were so happy to be staying there! The staff were extremely accommodating and the resort was quaint but amazing! The beach is right across from the resort, making it a perfect location. It was set away from the small city of Quepos, but close enough to go there...

Lovely place, great staff especially Anna and Edward. Great food, very nicely decorated rooms with attention to small details. The most pleasant experience we had in Costa Rica!!! Not far from Manuel Antonio national park and near the Rain maker.

The hotel is very nice, in the middle of nowhere.... The hotel is just in front of the beach with a nice swimming pool. Perfect to rest one night, no more as there's nothing to do except to swim in the swimming pool or the sea

Definitely a great place to stay. Love the location. The only thing that this place needs, is a better road to get there. Paving the road, will definitely make it easier to get there. Overall, my family and I loved it here.

We are a family of 4 with 2 boys ages 12 & 14. We found this property using trip advisor and loved it. It takes a little longer to get to this resort but well worth the effort. The rooms are clean and well maintained. The staff is super friendly and helpful with making plans. The pool is beautiful and...

This hotel may be good for a couple, but not a family. Very isolated. Food is not included and the restaurant is pricey. I got sick from the food there but unless we took a taxie somewhere else we were stranded and pretty much forced to eat there. There was 6 surf boards there for rent at 20 dollars per...

Great place to relax and chill, especially if you want to be of the grid. The beach was awesome. Loved the bungalows, very eco friendly!! I was a little afraid of the iguanas and lizards. I just tried to ignore them. Good food too!!! Wifi is not the best!!! At least each room had tv.

I stayed here on a solo trip for a week and couldn't have been happier. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and everything is very clean and well put together.

My husband and I stayed at Clandestino for 3 days during our honeymoon last year. The staff was fabulous! They took the time to bedeck the room with romantic flowers, towels folded like kissing swans and a box of chocolates. We are coming back!
