we had family members staying at a different hotel and they were not allowed in our room. They had to wait at the entrance. This was very inconvenient for us. For this reason we were not able to spend time at bahia del sol.

We have stay 3 different times, good price for the money, right on the ocean

Great location, they try very hard to make you stay good, we have stayed there before, and came back.

nice hotel close to the beach, friendly staff, good bar and food staff

Close to the beach, spacious room and bathroom, very good breakfast.

Chill little spot with easy access from the airport and as a great jump of to the rest of Costa Rica. Mellow little beach harbor (no waves) but plenty to do. We rented snorkeling gear and a couple kayaks for 20$ and explored the islands out front on our own, self guided. It was perfect. 2-3 great places to eat within walking distance and the food at the resort is awesome also.

It's modern design, almost stark. Location is perfect. It's a management choice they made, hushed voice waiters, breakfast very regimented. Ask for something different or a little wrinkle and they could take a long time to figure it out. If you like this style, go for it. I'd prefer something of equal quality, more CR style than European, and more friendly.

The place is right on the beach next to a sailing center so there is plenty of water activities available. The restaurant was satisfactory and the staff was very nice.

The hotel is beautifully kept and professionally run. Everyone who works there is courteous and friendly. The room was exceptionally comfortable, as were the lounge chairs situated in both ample sun and shade. The swim-up bar is fun. The breakfast, included with the room, came with plenty of fresh fruit and a good menu to select from.

Nice place, but room itself was strange with a bathtub in the middle of the room. Happened to get a room on main walkway and had to keep curtains closed all the time for privacy.

From check in to leaving a week later, we knew we had discovered a new "getaway", on our first trip to Costa Rica. I had emailed them that I was interested in working on my Spanish during our stay and upon our arrival, the reception and restaurant staff became my very patient and encouraging Spanish teachers. My wife even picked up a few phrases before we left. Our room was large, air conditioned, had a flat screened television with cable and outside rear patio doors was a beautiful sunbathing / lounging space, a completely private walled in area with an additional outdoor shower, Jacuzzi and blooming tropical flowers. The king size bed was firm but comfortable. Furnishings were obviously locally crafted, not really "luxury finishes", but comfortable, clean and well maintained. A room safe was provided. Our room was thoroughly cleaned everyday. The grounds were beautiful, meticulously maintained and right on the beach. We were here specifically to enjoy local food and enjoy lazy days of lounging on the very nice lounge chairs with cushions that were provided at no additional charge. The hotel offered a really nice range of excursions. Nasu Restaurant presented "fresh" perfectly prepared traditional food with a fine dining presentation. Service was outstanding. The complimentary breakfast was from a menu ranging from a traditional "Pinto Gallo" combination to eggs and bacon or a stuffed bagel, all including fresh fruit and our favorite, the daily fresh juice combination.

I describe this of paradise because of the upscale decor, tropical gardens, friendly helpful staff, and of course the beach. Our stay took an unexpected turn one morning when my husband felt so weak that we thought we should visit a nearby doctor. I took our wallets and passports and off we went. After an examination we left the doctors office in an ambulance and were airlifted to a hospital in San Jose. I tell you this because of the extraordinary help and support we received from Carol and Maria at Bahia Del Sol. Someone packed all our belongings, including the valuables from the safe, into our suitcases. They aggressively worked with us to determine how to get our luggage to us. Everything arrive safe and sound. We could not be more thankful for their extraordinary help. It's hard to rate them high enough.

The hotel was nice, clean and quite. The staff was great friendly and helpful.

This hotel is not as it appears on the website. It is old, run-down, and well past its prime. From the moment you pull up you will be disappointed. I booked a 2 bdrm family suite. Before registering I asked to see the room because the grounds of the hotel was my first clue this place was not up to snuff. I was glad i did. Its small, dark, with dirty out-dated bathrooms. Bedrooms were closet sized. Our "balcony" was actually a few chairs put out in front of our room on the common motel style walkway. not at ALL what i was expecting. I immediately told the "front desk Supervisor" Ernesto- really nice guy, but completely ineffective - that we would not be registering. I called Orbitz , orbitz called ernesto,Ernesto spoke with me- we all agreed I was cancelling. Ernesto said he could not confirm the cancellation (what?) until the following day. We went along our merry way. Orbitz was suppose to call me within 24hr to issue a refund. They did not. Called Orbitz again (another 1 hr on the phone) they called the hotel again. They were told the hotel would respond in next 24-48 hr. They did not. Another call to Orbitz.. another hour on the phone.. I am now on the FOURTH call with the same response from Orbitz and the Hotel. Guess What Orbitz.... They are not going to call you back@!! Don't stay here!! Book your hotels somewhere else!!!
