Fodor's Expert Review Hotel Brasilito
Between soccer field and beach, Brasilito, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Budget travelers who don't need amenities will love this rustic, two-story, wooden hotel's affordable price and seafront location, if not its no-frills but adequate A-frame rooms. You won't find much in the way of decor, but you will find hot water, Wi-Fi, and air-conditioning (in most). Be prepared for noise: kids playing, roosters crowing, dogs barking, and motors revving. Ask for one of the two larger rooms above the reception area; they have hardwood floors, TVs, and share a veranda with unobstructed sea views. The budget rooms do not have a/c or TVs so book accordingly. It's not for everyone, but you can't beat the price for seaside rooms. Breakfast (not included) is served at their beachfront restaurant, The Spot, which specializes in tapas and Asian dishes.
