Almost camouflaged against the forest, this property sits in the serenity of one of Guanacaste’s most magnificent coves, looking out onto glorious open coastline.
Sitting amid some interesting local communities, the hotel has a tiered layout, with landscaped terraces. Look out over the ocean from the freshwater infinity pool or hit a round of golf in beautiful surroundings.

It gradually provided employment opportunities, first in construction, then in increasingly more specialized service areas. Art programs and complementary education further provide empowering tools for the local communities.
This area has always been somewhat separated from the rest of the country (it was once annexed by Nicaragua), and has its own regional flavours and customs. The white sand beaches are popular escape spots, though, especially the more glamorous ones such as Playa Conchal. Many of the small fishing villages are now buzzing with visitors, and a once sleepy hub now has day and nightlife.
