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.

The location was better than I had anticipated. The restaurant at the hotel was the best food I ate the entire time in Costa Rica. The room was quaint but clean. The property was nice and well maintained. I do recommend La Puerta Del Sol very highly.
