I just want to say thanks to Mel and Ray for creating such a beautiful and comfortable environment. Staying at Casa Melray really made our Costa Rican vacation so much more enjoyable. Thank you both so much

I'm writing this review now that I'm back at home and terribly wishing we were back at Casa Melrays enjoying a coffee at the pool front kitchen or enjoying a gorgeous sunset on the beach.
This was our second time staying here and it was just as amazing as the first time.
Beautiful spacious rooms, gorgeous grounds, great hosts and staff, and sweet dog-Soma who made us feel at home when we were missing our dog! Potrero is a great community with lots to do and great restaurants.
We enjoyed meeting the other guests as well and even had a great seafood cook up in the communal kitchen with them:).
I highly recommend Casa Mel ray!
We will be back!

I did not flippantly title my review. This boutique hotel was beyond what I could have expected based on their website and reviews. The owners are delightful. They dealt with my 30+ emails prior to arrival. They've thought through every detail and will assist in lining up day trips, suggesting restaurants, provide tips about the area.
Casa Melray is situated on a beach that some people are using, but it is sparse. You will feel like you have the beach to yourself. I literally can't think of a reason to stay somewhere else in this area.

The pics are of the hotel, Soma the dog, the pool, beach just outside Casa Melray, sunset from the property, and our group with Mel.

This was our first visit to Costa Rica. Mel and Ray were absolutely perfect hosts. You felt relaxed and welcomed the moment you walked in. Their place is beautiful (pool, rooms, gardens, views ...)
Our room was right on the ocean and we enjoyed our morning coffee on our porch with the sounds and view of the ocean.
Mel was there to help with all your needs. She has information on numerous tours and is happy to take care of the bookings for you. Thank you Mel & Ray for a wonderful experience!
Best sunsets you will ever experience!!

We wanted a relaxing getaway over Christmas and New Years - our stay at Casa Melray was just that. Two couples staying in the guest house which walks out into the pool area and common kitchen was just perfect! We could lounge by ourselves, mingle with the other guests or have a quiet walk on the beach with access right through the main building. Mel and Ray are the perfect hosts. Fruit, cookies, and those delicious cinnamon buns found their way to our door on a regular basis. The staff is delightful, efficient and good at their jobs. Mel arranged everything for us - our own concierge. Private airport shuttle, massages on the beach, snorkelling tour and a golf cart to get us around. Recommendations for activities and dining in the area were excellent. We will miss Soma, the resident dog, who would walk with us on our adventures down the beach. We are all talking of our next trip to this wonderful spot in Costa Rica. I cannot say enough and you will not go wrong at all staying in this wonderful oasis. Did I mention it was PERFECT?!?
