Feedback from Travelers

The staff were great! Helped me figure out how to treat a jellyfish sting. The room was cleaned thoroughly daily, which is so important when we're constantly dragging sand in. It was a quiet beach with some good nearby good options.


The staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived quite late and slipped into the pool at 10:30 pm after a two day delayed journey. Floating under the stars made it feel like the first official start of our vacation. The next day we enjoyed breakfast at the hotel, rested at the beach and then walked to the village to get groceries. We had a picnic for dinner, on the veranda looking out on the Pacific. It is an older hotel in a developing part of beach and it was enjoyable to have our kids play alongside the Costa Rican families on vacation. There is always a game of soccer about to break out. The beach was lovely and the hotel is directly on it.


The Hotel El Velero was above and beyond all of our expectations from rooms, to perfect sunsets from the open restaurant to a wonderful, warm friendly staff. The BBQ every Wednesday and Saturday nights were outstanding culinary and social gatherings. I've never stayed in a hotel in this price range that even remotely measured up even remotely.
