The hotel property itself has potential. Note that it's a drive to the beach, but perched on a hilltop it has wonderful views. However, the rooms need renovation. One sad bulb in the ceiling, thin poor-quality sheet, closet door off it's hinges, 80s-style TV cabinet, depressing bathroom. I see a response from the management to another recent review below, saying...

We were not really sure what to expect. We venture every year to a different beach (why repeating when you have dozens to choose from in Costa Rica?). It ended up being a great stay, a great little hotel, kind of between a boutique hotel and a bed and breakfast. Room ok, facilities ok, restaurant Great!!!!!! Chef Daniel Badran made...

It is not really a beach hotel. Views to ocean are not great. The rooms are stale and stuffy. There were red ants in the room just roaming around at different places. I wish I had someone tell me before about how disappointing this hotel will be. Breakfast is included but does not include toast as an option. It all...

Dear guest, El-Sabanero Beach Hotel is a highly reviewed Hotel with a most stunning 270 Degree view of Flamingo Bay. On a clear day our guests enjoy terrace and room views so expansive, you can see all the way to Nicaragua. Our rooms are clean and recently renovated (within the past 3 months). We never claimed to be a 5...

We spent a few nights at the Beach Hotel and had a great time. Our room was spacious, clean and we had direct access to the pool from our patio. The staff was very friendly and we got very good advisory about the beaches in the area, activities etc. I especially loved having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the ocean...

We didn't end up staying here because we found something that was more suitable for our budget, but I honestly we wish we had because of the amazing reviews. This review is more about the customer service I received from Julia and Willie through email. We must have exchanged around 20 emails back and forth, and every time, I got...

We stayed at the hotel in December 2012 for 1 week. We loved the location, the view. The beach is simply beautiful - secluded cove with high rocks on both sides and shade from the rock at the back - so you don't need umbrella or other protection except for sunblock. The stuff is extremely nice and super-friendly (Willie and...

We just came back from an amazing Costa Rican Gateway! This hotel is the perfect little place to relax.

Olivia was extremely helpful via E-mail and on the phone when I was making my reservations and my transfers from and to the airport . Everyone was very friendly and food was excellent . Having breakfast at the terrace with the gorgeous view overlooking the pacific every morning has extended my life I think by 5 extra years .

My business partner and I were fortunate to spend an evening at your resort on the 18th of November. We found the views absolutely stunning and the staff extremely friendly. Although there are extensive upgrades happening to the hotel, it in no way interfered with our enjoying the pool area, the amenities or our experience. Thank you to everyone there...
