Most friendly staff (best of entire Costa Rica trip) and nice little familiar hotel in a paradise garden. Great breakfast. We also loved the surrounding with the non touristic beach Brasilito and the walk to conchal beach. Good snorkeling and great horse back riding.
What can I say about this place. From the outside it looks like a regular small hotel you find all over Costa Rica but what really sets this place apart was the staff. It’s a small boutique hotel with a great restaurant (read my review) which was ultimately our favorite spot to eat, overlooking a small pool. They offer free breakfast and dinner deal if you stay at the hotel with some great options. The dinner consists of a fruit drink, entree and desert. We book four nights there as it was our first time in Costa Rica and we usually stay and scout the area before moving on but we liked it so much we ended up extending our stay there for a few more nights. The rooms are clean, have a safe to put away your valuables and a good size bathroom. It’s a bout a 6 minute walk to the center of Brasilito beach, there aren’t sidewalks on the road there, so you have to kinda walk on the street with the cars wizzing by, but most people rent cars, we just tend to not do that. Now where did place shines is in its staff. I’ve been in the service industry for over thirty years and I felt that they were all super friendly and not in that hotel to tourist kinda of way but very genuine. Conversations and tips on the local scene, which is what we love. If you are looking for a spot in this town that has a lot of personality, then this is the place. Definitely best bang for your buck. This will definitely be our go to spot whenever traveling back here in the future.…
Absolutely loved this little boutique hotel. It was such a beautiful place. Lovely and clean, nice little pool, the food is absolutely amazing!!!!! Staff were so lovely and welcoming. Brasilito only across the road, then the beautiful Conchal beach was not far at all. Only strange thing we had was something in the loft/roof keeping us awake at night, after a while we are pretty sure it was lizards! Quite funny really hearing them running about.
We LOVED our stay at hotel conchal. The hotel grounds themselves are adorable, the adjoining restaurant is picturesque and very tasty, and the staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. It's centrally located to all the activities we booked - scuba at playa flamingo, surfing at tamarindo beach, and ziplining at congo canopy. Will absolutely be staying here again!!
Pool area is calm and relaxing. Restaurant is lovely with great breakfast. Room was nice with mini fridge and ac. We were able to reserve and check in last minute when another option fell through. They were ready and waiting for us with open arms.
This was our third visit to Hotel Conchal and we look forward to continuing the annual ritual! SO wonderful to return after the pandemic forced a two year hiatus. The owners Hilda and Simon are so very welcoming and genuinely concerned with our comfort. And Jennifer was super helpful in arranging for our Covid tests and a bird watching trip! We truly can not say enough about Donald, our generous server in the Hotel’s Papaya Restaurant-he embodies the spirit of Pura Vida!! Even the ladies cooking the marvelous breakfast every day are lovely. Also can’t say enough about the Papaya restaurant-such fresh and delicious fish and fruit-and cocktails!! Hotel Conchal is always a respite from whatever ails you! 😍💃🏾
We LOVED our stay. It felt like an oasis. The hotel itself is adorable, colorful, and dreamy, and the Papaya restaurant upstairs was delicious, offering complimentary breakfast and happy hours. Donald helped us with breakfast both mornings and made us feel very welcomed as did the rest of the staff. We would 100% go back the next time we visit Costa Rica!
We found this hotel very charming, clean and all the staff was extremely courteous. A special thanks to Jennifer who welcome us on the first day, Donald who served us breakfast every day with a big smile and all the staff for making our stay extra special! Beds could be a little more comfortable and rooms a little less noisy but overall a great stay. Highly recommended!
We would definitely come again, design is lovely, colors and hammocks, location is amazing. Apart from the waiter Donald though the staff seemed really fed up and was not very friendly or welcoming. The food was very tasty both breakfast and dinner at their restaurant which was quite expensive but incredible quality. In the morning you can get woken up by the noise from the road right next to you, by iguanas on the roof or howling monkeys. Our room smelled off weed almost everytime we came in so not sure if someone was smoking above us or near or how it happened but it was off putting. When using the fridge cockroach actually came out of this hole in there and gone back in so that wasn’t too nice. But if you aren’t scared of nature it’s all good. Also they texted me that I forgotten something in the room which I thought was a lovely touch…
We were running extremely late, which changed our travel plans and Conchal reached out through WhatsApp to check on us. They had our room ready and waiting even at 11pm, Wilson, the night security, was waiting for us and took very good care of us getting us checked in and our luggage to the room. It was very comfortable and breakfast was delicious. Conchal is a small hotel which made it very quiet and private and it fit our needs perfectly!
