Best Beach and Accomodation in Guanacaste???

Hello,

We were wondering what your opinion is for the best beach in this North Pacific region of Costa Rica.

We have kids and are looking for the best beach, with a room near the beach for under $200 night.

I know Conchal is nice but dont know of an affordable place there.

Ocotal, Hermosa, Grande, others ??...any thoughts on this with good accomodation recommendation is welcome?

Conchal is a nice beach but the Paradisus Playa Conchal takes up the beachfront!

Expensive for the service IMO!

You could look at Playa Hermosa as its only 30 mins drive from Liberia Airport.

Nice swimable beach but not a lot do after a few days.

Look at Samara or Manuel Antonio>

We are staying in Play Hermosa, for one night at the Playa Hermosa Beach hotel. The hotel has gotten excellent reviews and it looks really nice!

Have you thought about renting a villa or condo? When I was looking there were a lot of nice villas right on the beach, that seem like they would be in your price range.

Maybe you have to look more at the Central PAcific...more hotel choices...for example Manuel Antonio!!

And a lot ot do...Playa Hermosa in Guanacaste...nothing really to do there!!
