This was our second stay at El Colibri. It is just simply a beautiful quiet place to relax and enjoy some of the country's greatest scenery. The staff is aways super helpful and the rooms provide a perfect setting for a private intimate get away.

I really enjoyed staying here, rooms were clean and had nice furnishings. The employees were exceptionally friendly too, very courteous. The bathroom was beautiful, had a huge tub and a separate shower stall that was also spacious.

The staff were helpful and attentive. They had a great wine selection, the room was beautiful, clean and had nice furnishings. A new employee was being trained at the front desk and he did a great job checking us in. Jesus was our barista in the morning and the lattes were great. The wellness center was a delight as well....

Super friendly! Beautiful hotel and perfect setting! Town is walking distance, so dining is easily accessible. The boardwalk is right next to the hotel, so it's perfect for a walk at anytime! Even in the rain!
