What People Say…

I have been living fulltime in Costa Rica for two decades and have seen the town of Playas del Coco grow from a little fishing village to the amazing destination it has become. One of the main reasons for its incredible charm is because of the amazing hotel / restaurant/ bar known as La Puerta del Sol / The Garden Bar. This spectacular enclave has transformed our little town, by providing the locals and tourists with one of the best locations for entertainment and fun. The outdoor venue has provided us with some of the best live music and events in all of Guanacaste. The restaurant and bar are known as THE PLACE to hang out and chill with friends; the service is top notch. I have referred hundreds of my clients to stay in the rooms at the hotel, and they have always given 5-star reviews to the management. If you are looking for a place to vacation, or if you are here in town, either as a tourist or a resident, make sure you put La Puerta del Sol / The Garden Bar on your list as a MUST VISIT location. You will be back, many times. See you there.

Relaxing gardens, pool and rooms in Playas del Coco

Rated 5 out of 5

Another very accurate trip advisor recommendation! Lives up to its reviews, this charming retro place is well kept, large rooms, lovely chill pool and well tended garden/grounds. The big tree near the pool had parrots, iguanas and many other birds visiting, amazing! Great location and off the main strip but very close to the beach. The people working there are all super friendly and nice. Loved our stay there at the end of our trip before heading back home. Conveniently close to the airport!
