I stayed for 7 days and found the experience most satisfying. Mike and Judy and the entire staff were most helpful in all aspects. The food was very different every meals and very originally created and of superb quality. I would recommend this to anyone

I had the opportunity to spend some time at this hotel with my boyfriend who was doing business in Costa Rica. We spent a week at Costa Coral and really enjoyed our time there. Food was great. Staff was awesome. It was really hot that week, however they did everything to make sure we feel as comfortable as it gets.
