We were here for only appetizers and drinks. The restaurant and hotel are beautiful and the outside seating was stunning. We ordered sashimi and it was top shelf. The service was typical Costa Rica, puravida friendly. We regretted not staying here for a full dinner...More

My grandchild got to play on the beach and the diverse menu pleased the entire family. Great value and included in the price is orange juice and coffee.

Food wasn't fabulous. Had a lot of potential. Loved the marmalade. Coffee was ok. Yogurt was out of a single serve container. :( No wifi when we were there but plenty of birds to watch and the lovely flowering trees. Looks like a nice hotel...More

It sounds like you were here for breakfast. What else did you have besides yogurt? I think we have wonderful breakfast selections. I would love to hear your suggestions. La Gaviota is a very nice hotel!

I could not express it better. Good service and good food are our goals at Roberto’s and La Gaviota Tropical. The sunset is the icing on the cake.

We went for lunch and a little later than typical lunch hour. It was not super busy and our Service great. I think just calling when you arrive in CR will work. A day or two notice for the day you an to eat at establishment.
