  • Wonderful Experience!

    "This place definitely comes as advertised. A short walk from the beach, a beautiful view of the ocean right from your air conditioned room (real a/c not just a fan like other places in Costa Rica), hot shower, wonderful food, a wonderful host, amazing wildlife right outside your window (monkeys, birds, lizards,etc.), and a plethora of things to do. It is the most affordable place I've stayed in Costa Rica and provided the most bang for the buck. I kept feeling like I should be paying more for the experience I was having at this place and honestly felt a little spoiled after my third day here. Calin, the owner, went above and beyond standard hospitality and really made our experience ten times better. He had wonderful recommendations and suggestions on how to spend our time and to get the most out of our time in Guanacaste. At Calin's recommendation we went out on a sailboat for a sunset cruise. We saw dolphins, manta rays, tons of fish, a beautiful sunset and a whale! I took some amazing pictures on this trip as well and they will definitely be going up in a frame when I get home. Needless to say if I return to this area of Guanacaste any time soon I will be staying here."

  • Our favorite place to stay

    "Jeanie and I have been coming to Costa Rica almost every year for the past decade to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We have stayed at a number of Guanacaste resorts and visited several others. Ocotal is our favorite beach, and Los Almendros de Ocotal is our favorite place to stay. This year we stayed at a condo on the front row that had excellent reviews posted on VRBO. The reviews were right on the mark. Our condo was well equipped and only a 2-3 minute walk to the beach. An earlier review listed a number of local restaurants. We are not familiar with all of the restaurants listed, but we agree with the reviewer's overall assessment...we too have never had a bad meal in Costa Rica. In Ocotal, both Father Rooster's and Ocotal Beach Resort are excellent restaurants. The restaurant at Ocotal Beach Resort is up on a bluff, and may be the best place in the area to watch Costa Rica's beautiful sunsets. Ocotal Beach and the rear terrace of our condo also provided excellent sunset views. Picante's is another Ocotal restaurant that offers good food and beautiful ocean views. Our rental unit had a nice BBQ unit out front. We purchased charcoal, lighter fluid and fresh seafood in Coco. We grilled the fish and enjoyed a fantastic home cooked meal. At night the air-conditioned bedrooms are very comfortable. However, our condo had ceiling fans and secure screen doors that enabled Jeanie and I to go to sleep listening to the ocean surf and enjoying the comfortable breeze that comes off the ocean in the evening."

  • Paradise!

    "We had a fabulous stay here! The villa is located in the upper portion of Bahia Pez Vela. The view was unbelievable. The landscaping at the villa was beautiful, bougainvillea framed the ocean view... pride of ownership shows throughout the villa. The villa was absolutely beautiful, inside and out, and had everything we needed. Although the villa is a steep walk from the main pool, there's another pool on the same level as the villa. We had a car, so sometimes we drove to the main pool, but it would have been nice to have a golf cart. That said, we were just as happy to sit on the patio and admire the view. We were regularly visited by Coatimundi in the morning, Mapache in the evening, and white-throated magpie jays throughout the day... lots of fun! Bahia Pez Vela is a very nice "resort", well maintained, with beautiful landscaping, and nice people. Cesar, at the office was very helpful, and the staff at the restaurant, the gate, and those maintaining the grounds were very friendly. The beach is very quiet and secluded. There weren't many other people staying at Bahia Pez Vela, so we practically had a private beach and pools. Playas del Coco is very close by, for grocery shopping, dining, or an evening out at the many lounges. I can only speak positively of our entire experience with the owners, Verda and Neil, and our stay in Bahia Pez Vela!"
