Our family (mother / father / 5 year old son) visited over Easter weekend (Semana Santa) 2017. We picked EcoPlaya for it's price and location (right on the beach, and close proximity to location where a friends' wedding was taking place). We were very pleased with our stay and heartily recommend it, especially for more seasoned travelers. Pros: * Great...

We read some of the old negative reviews for Ecoplaya, and we (family of 6, 3 adults, 3 children) we were hesitant about going there. Fortunately, we went there. They changed our originally booked one-bedroom unit to a two-bedroom unit (#201), with a modest fee increase. It overlooked the ocean. The maids cleaned daily. We were very comfortable. The people...

Please read the long review to understand the rating I give the resort. This resort DOES have problems (rooms need a lot of updating, beds are as hard as sleeping on the floor, ants all over, lizards making noise in the room overnight, old pots and pans, A/C not working) You have to be careful if you decide to go...

(English at the bottom) El hotel se ubica en una playa que NO es la que usan en sus fotografías. La playa no es Rajada y no tiene arena clara. Tampoco se menciona que la zona es extremadamente ventosa y que es destino de kite surfing, por lo que puede causar inconvenientes si uno no lo sabe. El servicio es...

Excellent cabinas and rooms, most renovated and in good standard. Fantastic location on a private beach with a superb pool and friendly restaurant. Most small things are really annoying however - wifi never works and noone cares, several small amenities and tools in the kitchen like potato peeler was missing (and we were told there was none we could borrow...

Walked into a large room that smelled of urine, the smell did dissipate once we aired it out by leaving the balcony doors open. The bath tub was stained, had rusted screws sticking out of the wall from a broke off soap holder, holes in the shower curtain, and shower head was laying at the back of the tub. When...

Our room was very clean and comfortable. The grounds are meticulously maintained daily without any disturbance or inconvenience to guests. The beach is great for shell hunting and swimming. It was a very relaxing visit and I would recommend Ecoplaya to anyone looking for a peaceful, out of the way destination.

My husband and I and two of our adult children spent 7 days & nights at Ecoplaya in a 2 bedroom, 2 bath villa. It was very comfortable & quiet and we felt at home. After reading many of the older reviews I understood that it has been in transition and I found that the new owners have done a...

We were there for 3 nights with Costa Kite who are based out of the hotel and had discounted arrangements for their kitesurfing clients. Other than a walk on the nice enough and very quiet beach we didn't spend any time there as we were kitesurfing out at Copal Beach and went for sundowners at the end of the day...
