The hotel La Dolce Vita is very nice for its excellent position on the beach, first line to the ocean. Breakfast is good and well served by the staff that gave us a warm welcome at the hotel and helped for any need we had during our stay. The
rooms have satellite Television, good and free wifi, confortable climatizatione, kitchinette, fridge and a confortable bed.The swimming pool is small, in proportion with the hotel, and clean. Price was excellent and we loved Esterillos Oeste as a very nice place to have vacations, relax and surf, in a nature rich of wonderful birds as pelicans, fregatas, lapas..
Based on reviews, ratings and pictures, we were ready for La Dolce Vita. Once you get off the main road, you're treated to about a 1 km ride that makes moon craters look smooth. The rooms are small clean, but in need of repairs and general
maintenance. The pros are the wifi, TV and fridge, which froze everything we put in it. The cons are that you're next door to a dump for debris from the beach; the AC struggled to cool just the tiny bedroom; tiny and large ants and roaches were in the kitchen (we sprayed DEET around the bedroom door in hopes of keeping them out); the continental breakfast consisted of 'tropical fruit' - a banana, 2 pieces of very dry toast, a small glass of a Tang-like drink and a cup of coffee; the swimming pool was like an oversized jacuzzi; the beach was okay, but nothing special; and when we checked out, they tried to charge us for the room again after we had paid an exhorbitant price. Three young French backpackers arrived at the same time as we did, and left 15 minutes later. You have to leave the area to get anything, nothing nearby or onsite. This place might be okay for surfers, but I would not recommend it to anyone. Worst and most expensive place we stayed in Costa Rica.
Hotel features (5 = best, 1 = worst):
Short walk from hotel
Only thing here is an average beach and small to medium waves for surfing.
