I stayed here with my wife and 2 young children and babysitter for 4 days and nights. We had a great time! The room was comfortable, and fully functional, and great place to unwind after a day of kitesurfing from the beach. The staff (especially Chito) was amazing, and hardworking. We found out after checking in that there is a...

I stayed here with my family for 4 days and we really enjoyed ourselves. it is not the type of place that you would want to hang out at all day long, but is a perfect jumping off point for may excursions. Kitesurfing from the beach is great, and there are many other beaches near by. Bird watching on the...

When my friend booked this place through RCI in June of 2016, I went online to see the reviews,.( She has always stayed in nice condos with her membership), I was worried that this was not going to be to HER liking and I was a little hesitant also. When we arrived in the middle of October 2016, after the...

The rooms were in pretty bad shape, the air conditioning was not working well, the fridge were not working as well, we had to call maintenance couple of times. The pool area was pretty nice though, but everything else was kind of disappointing

The isolation of Ecoplaya resort is what makes it so special. Away from the craziness of every day life. Nature abounds the resort, from the evening visitors (curious raccoons) to the bird life, variety of squirrels that I had never seen before. Our unit was right next to the beach so sitting on the veranda in a rocking chair listening...

The casa was a 2 bedroom, 2 bath where the hot water was non existent, which doesn't bother me, but the first 2 days we didn't have any water except an hour a day. The grounds are terribly run down and the pool was not very clean. Food in the restaurant was only OK. It looks like they haven't spent...

We went as a family of adults and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Ecoplaya. The older reviews were a bit disturbing, but we decided to give it a try because we wanted to be in the northern region of Guantacaste. We were not disappointed. The resort is quiet and away from crowds. The beach was all to ourselves and we...

Our overall recommendation is that folks should avoid this place. When we made our reservation for this location, there was only one room available to us. Though we had a reservation (and presented documented proof of it upon arrival), the front desk did not have the reservation in their records. The person running the desk appeared to almost not know...
