    Worst experience ever!!!

    They gave us a king bed for four people, when we booked two doubles. The jacuzzi, the ice machines, the lights, everything was broken! The restaurant staff was friendly, but the chef refused to prepare half the menut. Our room floor was filthy, and the beds were as hard as a rock. To get to the beach was challenging from the hotel. There was no where near the hotel to purchase anything, you had to drive a long ways. When we requested compensation because of the fact everything was broken and because of the terrible service we received, they told us that was not possible, so they gave us a free dinner. At that free dinner, they couldn't prepare what we wanted (they said they ran out of ingredients) and refused to give us dessert. An all around SUB-PAR hotel.

    Ocotal Beach Resort

    Unbelievable views from the top of the hill. Modest amenities and a restaurant on the premises, though after 3 days or so we started looking for alternatives. Hotel needs improvements. Rooms are clean but after a heavy rain we had ants in our room for a few days. Local beach is nice.

    Great vacation!!

    Staff was very helpful, excursions were awesome. We went on excursions daily the Palo river boat & Nicaragua was my favorite, the kids was The National Park tour & ATV. I felt very safe, & the staff was very accommodating!! We ate for the most part at Father Roosters which was a 5-8 min walk on the beach. The only wildlife we saw on the property were iguanas & a few birds. The Palo river boat tour allowed us to see everything Costa Rica is known for; monkeys, bats, crocodiles, beautiful birds & different trees/plant species. I will stay here again when I return next year.

    Wonderful family or couples resort.

    The views from all rooms was amazing! Staff was extremely hospitable, knowledgeable and eager to please. Everything was as we expected. The tour company located at the resort (Mardigi Tours) was outstanding! They go above and beyond on their tours with competitve prices. Will definitely recommend to anyone planning a trip to the Guancaste area of Costa Rica! Thank you Ocotal Beach Resort and Mardigi Tours!!

    Great hotel with beautiful ocean views

    This hotel has one of the most beautiful hilltop views of the Pacific Ocean in the world. The dining terrace overlooks the turquoise water and black sand beach, and the hilltop pool and our room overlooked the Pacific. The beds were very comfortable, and the rooms were very clean. The hotel staff were very friendly and most accommodating. They helped us set up a zip-line canopy tour with Marvin and Digi, and they were fabulous! It's a very short trip to the small town of Coco to shop for souvenirs, dine, and buy groceries. We had a wonderful and very relaxing stay, and would stay here again!

    Great Beach Holiday

    The Hotel was nearly perfect. Superb, superb view. Great room and attentive staff. The only lowdown was no variety in breakfast. If they would improve that it would rate a 5. The beach excellent. Not crowded. Climate excellent. Great opportunities for boating. For tours, I suggest that you do them on your own with a rental car
