Bahia Esmeralda

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

My stay at Bahia Esmeralda was pleasant. The location was a bit out of the way, but the area and people were very nice. The staff at the hotel answered every question and addressed every concern we had. They were professional and polite. Our room had a kitchenette, so we were able to buy our own food and. Cook it in our room. There are three to four stores within walking distance of the hotel and about two to three restaurants nearby. As for the beaches, playa Potrero is a short walk away, but not a good beach. Playa Penca is much better and about a 5 minute walk from the hote. Playa Danta is 4 km away. You can hike to Danta, but be prepared to walk up and down steep hills to get there. If not, I suggest renting an ATV or car during your stay. If you like the quiet an rural country life close to the beach at a cheap price, this place is for you. If you prefer an area with a little more action that is on the beach, go to the bigger towns like Tamarindo. There are plenty of tours to take and all the tour guides are wonderful. They accept US dollars and Costa Rican colones.
