Hotel Sugar Beach, Las Catalinas
Very Good8.0
Quiet and peaceful, not for the adventurous types
The place is beautiful but very remote. Because of it being slow season there was no yoga offered. The beds are very stiff (some may like that of course) but the pillows are super comfy. The place is definitely for those who want to do absolutely nothing but sit on the beach or at the pool and eat. If you’re looking for adventure and better prices try the south or Arenal.

Lovely quiet Resort.
We had a lovely stay. The room was clean and the staff / restaurant were lovely. This hotel is a little secluded which is perfect for us. Quiet with lovely views and plenty of wildlife to see on the property.

I fell in love with this place!! The service is excellent!! The restaurant has a very nice view of the beach, and the food is great. We even saw a family of monkeys strolling by one evening.

Best resort ever!
This place is amazing!!! The rooms were extremely spacious and clean with the added bonus of a covered patio with chairs to enjoy the evening sunset. Everything about our stay was fabulous from the warm and friendly staff to the great rooms, gorgeous grounds and beach to the nice restaurant. We would love to come back and stay again.
