Great place to relax
Soulshine was very nice. It was clean and the staff were friendly. The food is really good and so is the ambiance. They play music and there was a nice pool right by my room. There was a friendly orange cat hanging around who kept me company. They offered to have somebody come and administer my Covid19 test before I return to the airport, which is really helpful. I’m going to stay here again!

Best customer service & hospitality!
Yael and her husband are awesome! They are super sweet and accommodating. The restaurant is excellent! Best food we had during our stay was at their restaurant. Also, Yael set up a driver to take us and pick us up to and from Tamarindo. She also put a beautiful flower arrangement for me as my bf wanted to get flowers for me. I will definitely come back and stay with them again next time I go to stay in this area of Costa Rica.

This beautiful hotel is nestled in a quiet beach town area away from the hustle and bustle of tourism, all you need is your flip flops and swimsuit. The restaurant is regarded as one of the best in the Avellanas Beach and the food was delicious. Thank you Yael

I came here to relax by the pool and at the beach as much as possible and this place did not disappoint, I never wanted to leave! Such a beautiful property and you can walk to the beach in just a few minutes. In fact I extending my stay for as long as I could!! The owners, Yael and Roy, live on site and are really friendly and personable and make sure everyone is always happy throughout their stay. Breakfast is amazing (I still dream about the chunky avocado, so good!!!), and everyone staying here was really friendly as well. Overall, just an amazing experience.
