Ecoplaya Beach Resort is small and quaint. I stayed there for two weeks and found it the perfect quiet get-away; exactly what I was looking for. I contacted Roberto, the General Manager, prior to my trip and he was extremely helpful with my questions. This resort receives TOP MARKS for their customer service! From the front desk staff, to the...

Ecoplaya definitely does not have the frills that most modern resorts have but we were not looking for that. This was a great place to stay for adventure and relaxing environment. Staff did not speak much english but they were extremely friendly and so fun to learn from. Room was always clean and anything we requested they were more than...

We read all the reviews and knew about what to expect. We've traveled to Mexico many times and do not expect the 5 star quality south of the border we get in the US. Our room was clean but the bed was not comfortable. We asked for an upstairs room because of all the reviews about bugs coming into ground...

I spent the summer at this hotel. It is remote which suited me fine. The hotel staff is very polite and hardworking. Rooms , swimming pools and grounds are cleaned everyday. Meals are delicious and prepared on time. Over the last year, efforts have been made to refurbish and improve the conditions of the hotel. So hats off to the...

Recommended for a no-frills, nature- and adventure-centered vacation. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Ours directly overlooked the bay and Isla Bolanos-- stunning view. There was a small terrace to enjoy this even more. At the time we visited, there was a near constant strong breeze off the bay, but the terrace was still enjoyable and the breeze cut the...

We arrived on Sunday to what appeared to be a completely empty place in the middle of nowhere, but close to the Nicaraguan border...we had read the other trip advisor experiences and were prepared for bugs, bandits, beasts and bad weather. What we got was a wonderfully quiet setting, pristine beach, and a resort that was under maintenance. It's been...

Ecoplaya is in a remote corner of Costa Rica along the southern side of Bahia Salinas. You should rent a car otherwise you'll be limited to tours the resort offers, which while not bad may not be what you want to do. The road there is very rough, though after spending two weeks in different parts of the country, there...
