Overall, a very rewarding experience for peaceful atmosphere, friendly service, fair prices, nature at your door. Macaws everywhere.....and monkeys, too. It was a long drive from our condo near Jaco (5 hours) so I would suggest flying to Puerto Jimenez, only 4 KM's from the hotel.

I stayed at the Agua Dulce three years ago and again this Jan 2017. I can't say enough good things about the location, the hotel and the staff. The hotel manager Ricardo and Carolina form the front desk in particular were so very helpful and friendly. We had a mix up in our booking and did not have a fridge...

The rooms are large and air-conditioned, which is great, but they do not allow breezes to flow through. The pool was well maintained and comfortable. You can't beat the beach location. The restaurant was very variable. We enjoyed our first two days there, but on the third day guests who were friends of the owners put up a huge Trump...

Aqua Dulce is a worn well used three star beach resort. The houses are simple but works, the pool is clean and so is the beach. But all in all it leaves you with the impression that the hotel has seen its best days and no one really cares about it any more.

First impressions are important and this resort could do better. Faded street signs starting 100 km away, and entrance (probably temporary) via the parking lot and laundry lowered expectations. However the place grew on us. The beach is beautiful and the rooms are clean and spacious with excellent AC. The pool is fine. The food is average at best and...

In a great location but it is quite far from the town itself so would recommend hiring a car, taxis are $15 each way. The restaurant will not allow you to put charges on your room so you need cash with you to pay for drinks and food. No safe in the room and minimum storage. Great location for seeing...
