Little paradise

Playa Potrero is a very peaceful place, and the hotel goes with the mood. Small hotel but great experience. Nice people in the staff, great chef in the kitchen.

Felt like visiting family :)

Everything is very laid back, warm, pleasant... No pressure, no judgement, no noise, no nonsense :). You feel like you are visiting family who cares and makes sure you have everything you need at all times. Wonderful staff. Bahia del Sol is a small hotel and you easily become known by name :). They give you cookies everyday. Know your favorite breakfast and drinks :). Everything is on time and as requested. Lots of comfort and warmth. And at night you can hear the ocean, so hope you like some white noise :). Chill, it the Pacific.

Great spot.

We were there in the down season, so the place was pretty deserted and we basically had the hotel/beach to ourselves. Rooms were nice & clean. Great A/C. Beach was nice - black sand, which was cool, but the water was really murky because of it, so you'd come out with the suit full of black sand inside & out. But pretty beach. Not much to the little town in the down season - seemed like most of the restaurants were closed. Good pool bar at the hotel with decent happy hour deals - we ate dinner there one night and were shocked by how expensive it was and how horrible the wine was (first time we've ever not finished a bottle hah) but over this place is a good find & we enjoyed it a lot.

Great hotel

Nice pool and couldn't be closer to the ocean. I wouldn't call it a four star hotel but we really didn't want that anyway. It was perfect for our family. No hair dryer and poorly lit rooms are my only issues with the room. Good size and cold A/C. Staff was the best and the food was very good. Good restaurants in immediate vicinity. La perla was excellent. And take-out pizza from Cara Pizza was the best.

Vacation with my son

Staff was very nice and helpful. They promised double bed end up with small room with a king bed which was very uncomfortable to share. The hotel charges are super expensive they dint even have microwave. The old small fridge hardly worked breakfast was great friendly staff.

Diamond In The Rough

This place is a surprising little diamond just far away from the hustle and bustle of larger tourist towns. You will love the peace and quiet of the resort as well as a beach all to yourself, yet still be 15-30 minutes away from Costa Rica's adventure, food and shopping. We stayed in a 2 bedroom villa which had a private balcony, full kitchen and everything you could ever want. The staff was very friendly and most spoke English. My only negative is that the pool is not that large and tended to get leaves blown into it from the nearby trees…but that is a minor issue, since the ocean is literally at your back door.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Ask the staff to point you to local food places (such as Las Brisas and the Golden Shrimp) since they offer the same outstanding food on the beach and cost 25% -30% less than the touristy places.

Great Family Experience

Stayed @ Bahia Del Sol 3/21/2013-2/27/2013. Had an awsome family experience. Hotel was very quaint. Our room was perfect for a family of 5. All the staff was helpful and accomidating. Got to know the bartenders by name. Jose and Jimmy were wonderful and Marvin was the best. They gave us recommendations on where to eat if we wanted to explore the area. Never had a bad meal. Dinner @ hotel was delicious. We order Mai Hi Mahi Chipolte that was out of this world. The only thing bad I have to say was the that the beds were not comfortable. Woke up achy and stiff. Besides that we were able to over look it.

beach getaway

For starters, we had a delicious mango mint welcome.drink made with Costa Rican sugar cane rum. That was a great start. The room itself was nice...we had a standard.room with 2 double bed. We slept on the inner sheet that you would normally cover yourself with because the fitted sheet was dirty with sand and dirt. Not cool. Otherwise, the bathroom was clean. A safe was provided for valuable items. A big problem is the number of mosquitoes in the room. Clearly the windows didn't keep them out and we were bitten multiple times in our sleep. The decor of the hotel is nice. They have hammocks in front of the rooms which are unique and comfy. Breakfast was included with our stay which was great. The staff was kind and allowed us a late checkout of 1pm. One of the most awesome things about this place is it's location on playa portero. We felt like we were on our own private beach. The sand is a dark brown/black which is different for us and is underated by most beacuse of the other beaches nearby (playa conchal, brasilito, and flamingo). The sand felt like velvet in the water. The view of the sunset from here is amazing.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

If you enjoy seafood, el coconut restaurant across.the way has a delicious bbq whole red snapper that comes with rice and steamed vegetables. The bbq is done argentinian style and you can watch the chef cook it on the unique-style grill. She stuffed the inside of the fish with tomatoes, onions, and bay leaves. What flavor! This was enough for 2of us and we split a fried calamari dish as well.
