The condo was so much nicer than I expected. It is a five minute walk through the pool courtyard, across the street, then through the Diria Hotel lobby and pool area to get to the beach. The beach is great for kids, slopes out very gently, there are waves, but they break far out and come in gently. My 2 and 4 year old could play in the water. The beach is very large. Condo property feels secure, has gated entrance. We shopped at the Automercado for groceries. The condo was well stocked and so nice. Great washer/dryer. View from balcony is of the ocean. There were beach towels, cooler, boogie board and chairs to use. This is the nicest condo we have stayed at and have used homeaway/vrbo mant times. Dave was great to work with and very helpful, provided directions/recommendations for the area. Would love to come back to see the other things we didn't have time to see. Recommend Monteverde (cloud forest-4 hour drive), Rincon de la Vieja (volcano/yellowstone-like-2.25 h drive) and do the estuary tour. We booked on the beach, saw howler monkeys, alligators, birds! Diria has large pool with sloping sides. Lots of chairs, didn't use it, went to the beach as it was so nice. Friendly staff.
Rent a 4 wheel drive if you plan to travel to volcanoes! Very bumpy roads, with potholes and very large gravel. Loved it!!!
