A beautiful hotel, very close to the beach. Loved waking up to the tropical scenery everyday. The staff was very pleasant and nice. Very clean facility and the shows were great! My only cons are the food was very bland and the bed was very hard. Woke up with back and neck pain everyday. I would say ...
Beautiful hotel, awesome pools, right next to beautiful beach, amazing food and drinks, walking distance to lots of bars and restaurants. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Couldn't be happier with our stay.
Hard to beat an all-inclusive Hilton property. We paid the extra for the Premium package (your own concierge, waitstaff in your own special/private area, and wayyyyy better WiFi access even on the beach). The facility is a little shabby, but that's to be expected with as much use as it gets. Running ...
Literally unbelievable! The nicest people you can meet. I have no problem giving them my money they deserve every penny. Fish fresh caught with us watching. Amazing dinner and breakfast. A truly amazing family. Something you can be proud to say you were able to experience. Great job!!
It was amazing the hotel was beautiful views amazing and the staff was great! The hibachi restaurant was the best however they needed stronger drinks but since it was all inclusive just order a shot on the side.
We went to Costa Rica and stayed at 4 different hotels, all but 1 were 5 starts. Peace Lodge was hands down, the most incredible hotel we've stayed at. The room was PHENOMENAL- so beautiful, comfortable, and just had so many magical touches. I loved the lighting options, the fireplace, the super ...
The service at this hotel is excellent. Everyone working there and the Hotel general manager are very friendly and nice. We had a great time. The villa is very big and comfortable. Bathroom is excellent with his and her sections. The villa has its own outdoor hot spring spa which is very nice. The ...
The hotel asked us what occasion it was and we told them our anniversary. They surprised us with a cute banner on our door. They also leave cute notes in the room and gave us a free bottle of sparking juice to celebrate (since we don't drink). The grounds were absolutely stunning and the food is ...
The food was amazing, chef David did an amazing job... I loved the staff, so helpful and friendly... I would highly recommend this hotel... the bathroom could be a bit awkward if you are shy.. but everything was just beautiful... again the food was out of this world!!!
This hotel is on the high end of hotels in the Quepos, Manuel Antonio area. It is very small and private. The infinity pools are incredible with swings around the pool. The hotel overlooks the jungle and ocean below. There are many monkeys that came to visit us right outside of our deck. The staff ...
In Costa Rica, you can enjoy lovely tropical beaches, the grandest adventures, the wonders of nature, scintillating culture, all the necessary components of an ideal vacation. No wonder, then, that thousands of tourists have made Costa Rica their top travel choice. The richness of Costa Rica stems from the cultural diversity of its people.
Though Costa Rica has a tropical climate, it has many microclimates too. The most suitable time to visit this country is the local summer season, which begins in December and lasts until April. This is also the time when the popular sites are crowded and more expensive. For the avid surfer, the rainy season from June to October on the Pacific side and November to May on the Caribbean coast are the ideal times to visit. The turtle season on the Caribbean side of the coast is from February to October.
Bring some drinks and friends and catch the rare opportunity of watching turtles hatch their eggs at Totuguera in July-August, though you will have to miss a night's sleep keeping watch at the beach.
Have the Casado, a traditional home-style meal at El Chicote.
It would be a good idea to carry back home a few bottles of Salsa Lizano, a distinctive condiment in Costa Rica.
In mid-October, you can have a blast at the carnival by singing, dancing and drinking, at Isla Uvita.
For an authentic Costa Rican yet cheap dining experience try out Maravilla restaurant in Santa Elena.
Costa Ricans are proud to have had more than a century of democratic tradition and more than 50 years without a military. This was abolished in 1948, and the money that the country saves from not having armed forces is invested in improving the quality of life of its citizens. This contributes to the social peace that makes Costa Rica a welcoming place to visit.
Costa Ricans, also known as "Ticos," are famous for being very hospitable people and they would like to keep this reputation. They are well-mannered and hard working, always willing to offer a smile and a handshake to people. They know that their country is unique, and they are generally willing to offer help to those visitors that are lost, at times even explaining cultural aspects that a foreigner might find strange, making their stay as pleasant as possible. It is said that "Ticos" are the best asset that the nation has, and once you have experienced their friendliness and spontaneity, you will be convinced.
