The Hotel is a full service, ocean view hotel located on Playa Ocotal a short 5 minute walk to the beach and 3 km south of Playa del Coco, in the province of Guanacaste. The design and decor of the building is that of an elegant Spanish-style villa that inspires relaxation and comfort for the guests of the hotel.
Playa Ocotal is a gated community located 25 minutes from the Daniel Oduber Airport near the city of Liberia, making the Hotel ideal for both vacation as well as business visitors. This exclusive resort community is a place where travelers can enjoy all the local activities then come home to Ocotal and just sit back, relax and ponder the tropical charm that makes Costa Rica the paradise that it is.
At the moment, and probably for the next 3 to 5 years, Guanacaste is enjoying the hottest real estate market in Costa Rica, and quite possibly the world. The relaxed atmosphere at the Hotel provides the ideal base from which to chat about all the opportunities in the local real estate market.

PLAYA OCOTAL BEACH
The beach at Ocotal is generally “tranquilo” (peaceful). It is rarely crowded and always a delight to swim. Some of the best snorkeling in Guanacaste is found right off the rocky points of Ocotal bay. It is a short 5 minute walk for the guests to be picked up for sports fishing, diving, sailing, snorkeling, jet skiing and any other water activity that is available in the area. Ocotal Beach is home to some of the most successful sail fishing boats in the world. You can arrange for a half day or a full day trip from the hotel.

There is a 10’ by 30’ foot very cozy and private pool. The swim up bar allows the guests to enjoy their drinks without leaving the pool.
The heated Jacuzzi forms part of the pool area. It was added in 2003. Because it is part of the pool itself, it utilizes the same water that circulates through the pool. When the heater and jets are turned on, the water stops circulating to the pool and remains in the Jacuzzi to be heated. When the cycle is finished, the water again begins circulating through the system. This saves on electricity and does not require any additional chemicals other than those used daily in the pool. It was constructed by the same engineer that maintains the pool daily.
There are two quaint ranchos located on the property. One is in the garden lot with a barbecue and table seating area. It is a great place to have Yoga classes as well.
The other rancho is connected to the main building. It is where the kitchen facilities are located as well as the common area for guests to watch TV, read or just sit and rock.
