Bahia del Sol - Portrero Costa Rica - Help!

Hi there

My husband and I are super close to booking Bahia del sol in Portrero. It looks wonderful. BUT we would really lik eto speak to people who have stayed there. Specifically to ask if this resort is close (walking distance preferably) to any other decent/good restaurants?

The resort does not offer an All inclusive and so we would like to try other places out too.

Also, how did you find the prices of the restaurant (at Bahia del Sol) for mixed drinks and meals?

Thanks!

The hotel is beach front and pretty close to Flamingo where there are options of restaurants, also in the Brasilito area there are options to dine as well as for drinks. It is on the way to Playa Danta, where the new Green House restaurant has opened. This hotel is a good option.

We stayed here a few years ago. There are other restaurant options with in walking distance and some of the restaurants in Brasilito will pick you up and bring you home for free. The on site restaurant is good, not cheap but not crazy expensive considering it is a hotel restaurant and bar. They have mini fridges in the room so we bought some sandwich stuff and we always bring a bar with us. We also bring a soft cooler. SOOOOOOOOOO we often made our own drinks. The hotel has a great ranch/common space where we loved to hang out in the rain and play cards. They had no issues with us having our own cooler and drinks. If you are walkers it is an easy walk to Flamingo. I wouldn't do it at night but day time great. We did not have a car while we stayed and never missed having one.

Another good restaurant that will be close to you if you stay at Bahia is The Shack in Potrero. It's walking distance from the hotel and has excellent (and very reasonable) breakfast, lunch, and dinner options.

The food, staff, and prices are all excellent.

Hotel Bahía del Sol is a great option, is a very nice hotel, excellent service, and beach front, you will feel the beach is just for you, almost like a private beach. The menu of the restaurant of the hotel is very good, the food there is very good and you enjoy it in front of the ocean. There are many options near by, some walking distance other close by by car. It is a very good option.

I would try somewhere else. The hot tub is broken, there are no restaurants near by without a car, the food at the hotel is overpriced and not that great and the drinks are all watered down. Plus, they had the nerve to steal my credit card information and pass fraudulent transactions through my account.
