The rooms were pretty basic here, but clean and fine - and some had great views and many felt like they were nestled into the trees. The staff was outstanding! I've never felt so welcomed. It was hard to leave as it seemed like we were leaving our new-found family. The groun

I visited Sugar Beach with my mom and brother. As 3 adults sharing a room, we were worried we would feel crowded, but that was not the case. The rooms were nicely laid out with comfortable furniture and enough room. The patio with the ocean view was definitely my favorite part! H

How close are you to the nearest town? Is there bars, restaurants, nightlife, etc., within walking distance to hotel? Are rooms equipped with refrigerator to store water, beer?
Hola beercity, Thanks for your question: The nearest town is Potrero and is a 5 minute drive in car. In Potrero you can find restaurants, bars, and some nightlife. To be honest here is very quiet here and a bit secluded but still close to everything. You can walk to town if the tight is low but during night we would reccomend to take a taxi, we can help you with that, no problem. Yes, we have mini frigde in all rooms. Please let us know if have any other questions, happy to help. Pura VIda

Are we able to DIY snorkle at your beach? If so, do you have snorkle gear for rent? If not, are there beaches in the area that are good for DIY snorkling? Thanks!
Hola Adryan! This is not the best spot for snorkeling but right next to us in Playa Danta there is a water sport place that rents snorkeling equipment etc... Called PUra Vida Ride and we recommend for this Playa Dantita 5 minutes from here or Playa Conchal 20 minutes from here. Also there are catamaran tours that can take you to snorkel in beaches that you cannot get with a car. We have all the information in front desk with our customer service team. Please feel free to reach us anytime. Sincerely, Victoria
