The staff is wonderful and ocean beautiful. Our only unhappiness was being so far from town & an expensive cab ride. Suggest renting a car to just run up & down the coast. The restaurant is very good.

We absolutely loved our stay at Bahia del Sol! The staff is incredibly nice. We learned so much about Guanacaste from talking with the staff. The grounds are beautiful with an assortment of birds, geckos, iguanas, and fun beach life. The beach is quiet and clean.
