    Friendly staff, well kept grounds and rooms well appointed. Beds are very hard...but otherwise comfortable rooms. Close to the best part of the beach. 3 minute walk to amazing sunsets. Great place to relax and unwind.

    How close to the leatherbacks is your hotel & what month is the prime time month for turtles.

    Response from RipleyCostaRica | Property representative |
    Hi Ron, The meeting point for the turtle tours is 50 meters from the hotel. The season started mid October and goes until mid February.
    Hi, We'll be travelling with young children 1-9 years old, and I'm wondering if the ocean is safe and swimable for kids that young. Also, is the surf good for first time surfers? Thanks!
