Fodor's Review

Snagging the best spot on the beach, Bahía del Sol has a gorgeous, beachfront pool and comfortable rooms built around a mini–rain forest of tropical shrubs and towering trees. Spacious rooms with contemporary furnishings and fabrics open onto a portico with chairs, hammocks, and views of the garden, which has botanical labels to help you identify plants. Deluxe suites also have a back patio with a Jacuzzi hemmed by greenery; the King Sun suite is the only one with a

bay view. Spacious one- and two-bedroom suites also have large kitchens and comfortable living rooms, great for families. At the restaurant ($$–$$$), smartly uniformed waiters serve jumbo shrimp, lobster, fresh fish, and various meat dishes prepared in an eclectic mix of culinary styles. Seating is under a massive thatch roof or at several shaded tables on the immaculate lawn overlooking the ocean. There's also a full spa. But this luxury hotel doesn't rest on its well-situated laurels. The service and commitment match the unbeatable surroundings, earning the hotel four leaves in the national sustainability program. Staff are also active in the local community, promoting recycling, beach clean-ups, and teaching English to local children.
