Guanamar is located on the hill top of the southern end of the bay, perfectly situated inviting guests to enjoy the spectacular panoramic views. The charming typical thatch roof bungalows, garden trails and swimming pool, bar and restaurant decks offer guests the ideal sites for admiring the beautiful sunsets over the Pacific. From your arrival you will be able to admire Carrillo Beach, a beautiful half moon bay of white sandy beach extending for nearly two kilometers.

Rolling hills and mountains covered by tropical forest as well as the reef at the northern end of the bay protect the beach from the strong winds and waves, acting as natural barriers for the calm waters ideal of water sports and sport fishing. Playa Carrillo is safe and ideal place for visitors, especially at the southern end where parallel to the beach and road palm trees line the coast line providing shade and picturesque views for those strolling long the scenic beach.

Carrillo Beach was awarded Blue Flag status, nominated as one of the cleanest beaches in Costa Rica. The hotel also offers below services:-41 rooms-1 swimming pool -1 Restaurant (Mahi- Mahi)-1 Bar (Marlin)- Money Exchange: available at reception-Luggage service: brought to your room-Wake up calls: available through reception-Laundry service: ready on the same day if delivered before 9:00 am- Spacious parking-Free Internet service available in the lobby, bar & restaurant-Security 24 hours-Tour desk -At 7 kms from the property the client will find commercial Center with: souvenirs shops, stores, banks, legal assessment services, local airlines, car rentals, pharmacy, supermarket, restaurants, casino and bars with varied nocturnal settings.Additional Charges:Only room and taxes.

The hotel has 1 bar and 1 restaurant that offer one of the most memorable views of Carrillo Bay. Comfortably seated 50 feet above sea level, the fresh ocean breeze awakens your appetite for the local and international specialties such as the famous seafood salad, fresh lobster and jumbo shrimp served daily in the kitchen, fresh from the local fishermen. The restaurant offers a wide variety of dishes from pastas, salads, and selection of beef cuts. The sun set from the bar is one of the most spectacular in the country and framing a romantic evening accompanied by a Margarita or Pia Colada. You may also savor the exquisite appetizers such as the calamari or seafood brochettes.

Family vacation

The bayfront rooms are spacious and clean. End rooms have the best views. Some of it is dated but the view off the balcony of the bay below makes up for any small shortfall. The location of the room about halfway down a very large hill does require some physical activity. This is not a good choice if you have physical limitations. We felt that each day we got a very good work out without going to the gym. We found the staff at the bar and restuarant very friendly. The restaurant also was very good. We did not rent a car and we were a little worried about limited dining choices, However, the town had many choices and it is short walk down the road to reach them. We wish we could go every year and cannot wait to go back.

Perfect view on bay

Hotel rooms are a little outdated but we love the location. Since 1985 no serious update has been done on the place, our mattress was replaced after we made a complaint that you can not sleep on those old rags any more. AC is loud but terrace is gorgeous on middle house units 118-130. Spacious room no luxury , no internet available there only in bar or restaurant level about 100 stairs up. Still no Flat screen TV. Staff is helpful and competent. Forget booking over their own service, to expensive and rude to customers.

Interesting old school Costa Rica

This place is right in the heart of Carrillo above the beach. The view is amazing. They two nice bars with a view and a decent pool. Back in the 90's when Costa Rica took off as a beach destination this pace would have been one of the pioneers, but it's very dated and obvious the owners are maintaining it based on a low cost structure. Everything is very old and they make you wear a wrist band like you are at a club Mead. The staff is friendly but very young across the board, another sign they are running things for cost management. I recommend it if you get a good price on a room.

Not on green Season

I'm a very regular guess on that Hotel due to my work, since last year, the experience on low season is very nice, but when green season come is to crowd and the services is poor. Location is good, but rooms need a little refresh, looks old and not well maintained.

Perfect holiday getaway

My boyfriend and I stayed at Hotel Guanamar over the holidays and had an excellent time. We had a huge room with a wide balcony and a great bay view. The view from the pool deck and restaurant was also amazing. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. We had dinner frequently at the hotel restaurant...delicious food, amazing views, excellent service, professional staff...overall a great experience!

WHERE TIME STOPS....

Good experience ,remote area,quiet and peacefull it feels like time stops.. people live so simple but it works.I admire them.The small hotel that feels more like a vacation home its nice,with nice staff. The only thing its hard that there is no refrigirator.For this location you defenetly need a car. I think the best way to explore beautyfull COSTA RICA is to not stay in the same hotel brake it up .Dont expect luxury in COSTA RICA ,be prepared to step back in time maybe 40 years?But if you like nature ,exploring ,animals,then its the place to be. PURA VIDA!
