Why Stay At Bahia Del Sol Beach Front Hotel & Suites
It's no wonder this intimate, friendly property is a favorite for both couples and families—it fronts a wide breadth of sand framing perfect Pacific sunsets along Costa Rica's Potrero Bay.
This beachfront resort has everything you'd expect from a Caribbean-style getaway: a huge swim-up bar, candlelit tables under palm trees, thatched palapa roofs, rooms with ceiling fans and pastel-hued walls, and of course a sandy swimming beach. But it's the little Costa Rican influences that make this tucked-away hotel special—mainly, the smiles on the family-like staff and their non-jaded, helpful attitudes. Four of the 28 rooms come with Jacuzzis on their private patios, and all come with hammocks, air-conditioning, cable TV, and Wi-Fi. You're also just a few minutes away from Flamingo Beach and Prieta Beach, and you can meander on foot from the hotel to nearby villages and marketplaces.
From June to October, the northwestern Guanacaste region has its rainy season (a.k.a. "green season"), although it's drier than in other parts of the country. Be sure to pack bug spray.
If it's available, ask to upgrade to the King Sun Suite for a private patio with a Jacuzzi, stellar ocean views, and shower that opens up to the outdoors.
Arrive at Liberia Daniel Oduber International Airport (LIR), which is approximately 30 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 1 hour of travel time.Playa Portero, Santa Cruz, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
