Review Summary



  • Property is very spread out -- several-minute drive from condos down to beach
  • All-condo property rather than full-service hotel -- guests are largely on their own

Bottom Line

Reserva Conchal is not so much a hotel, but rather a series of four individual condo villages, each with several buildings clustered around a communal pool. Drive several minutes to the guests-only Beach Club and it feels more like a resort, with a great-looking pool that has two bars, an open-air restaurant, and a lovely spa and fitness center. Nearby is the property's 9-hole golf course. The large, modern condos are ideal for families or couples who want to travel in groups -- though there's not a ton for children to do.

On the northern Pacific coast in Guanacaste

Map of Reserva Conchal

Reserva Conchal is located on the northern Pacific coast of Guanacaste, a dry, sparsely populated area of the country that's known for its beautiful beaches (including ones where sea turtles nest), surfing, snorkeling, deep sea fishing, and its string of large resorts. The region is home to seven national parks, including Rincon de la Vieja Volcano National Park, where visitors can hike past boiling mud pots and smoking fissures. Guanacaste has a lower elevation than other areas of the country and an arid climate, so there are no rain forests here, but the dry tropical forests are still wildlife rich: Visitors can spot howler monkeys, sloths, white-faced capuchin monkeys, and iguanas.
