We spent 3 nights here and loved it. The customer service was amazing, the room was very clean and everything worked as it was meant to, which is not always the case in Costa Rica. It is right on the beach and listening to the surf at night was wonderful. We will come again.

Dear Kristy,
thank you very much for your great feedback.
It is a real pleasure when our guest felt the hard job we applied everyday, starting from the communication, up to the services on the place.
We are glad if you desire to come at Esterillos Oeste again!

The location was fantastic, a stones throw from the beach. Pool area was nice, with the option to take loungers and chairs onto the beach if you wanted. The apartment had everything we needed, 2 balconies, a kitchen area, living room, TV, air conditioning and a good shower. Breakfast was good, something different every day and delivered to our balcony at a time of our choosing between 7-9am. Staff were always around to ask for anything if needed. The wildlife that could be viewed from the balconies was great, all very peaceful. All in all I would highly recommend this accommodation for a stay in Costa Rica.

Our family spent three days in this tiny and special hotel. We had a warm welcome and have been given an apartment that was freshly renovated with a brand new bath room. Our apartment had climatisation, TV, kitchen with a huge fridge, WiFi and hot water shower. Breakfast was good and well presented by the couple serving us in the morning.
Our kids enjoyed the swimming pool in front of the ocean and we made nice walks on a lovely beach. We saw many kind of birds, monkeys, iguanas.
In the village there are three restaurants/bars, we tried a couple of them and the food was fine (Recife and Los Almendros). Generally speaking we had a nice stay and we recommend this beach.

Great value place to stay. The rooms were very clean, despite being a little older. Beds comfy enough, A/C worked great! A breakfast of fresh fruit, toast, jam, delicious coffee and juice was brought to our little patio every morning. No hot shower (has an electric shower head that we were not going to try), but as I mentioned, it's a great place for the price. Safe in the room worked once we got instructions from the manager. Wifi worked great! The pool was clean and lovely and the hotel is RIGHT on the beach, which goes for miles and is VERY quiet! The town itself is VERY small and quiet, but has a supermarket for basics, and a couple restaurants in walking distance. If you want something fancy, look elsewhere, but we grew to love the little hotel :)

The beach is absolutely amazing! You can walk for miles and see almost no one!
We stayed on the second floor where there is one apartment with a view. The bed and pillows were super comfortable and breakfast was a welcome site in the mornings! The owners are in the middle of upgrading and they have great taste and skills!

Room Tip: Choose the second floor apartment if you want a view.
