Strategically located in the region of Guanacaste between Marbella and Nosara, this is a rare business opportunity to buy a turnkey 5-star Boutique Hotel on the beach in Costa Rica.

The hotel was built in 2000 on a property of 5+ Acres (20.464 m2) of land with 650 feet (200 m) of beachfront. It was entirely remodeled in 2013 and is completely expandable.

The hotel is easily accessible by car via the ferry in Puntarenas or by plane by flying into one of the local airports servicing direct flights from International Airport (SJO). Well-managed and luxuriously decorated, this hotel has it all.

The accommodation (actually largely expandable) consists of:

  • 4 Villas
  • 3 Superior Suites ocean view
  • 3 Junior Suites ocean view
  • 3 Superior Suites garden view
  • 3 Junior Suites garden view and
  • 5 Deluxe one queen bedroom rooms

The guests can enjoy a nice swimming pool with Jacuzzi, a fully equipped and exclusive gym and three bars and a wet bar – different facilities where guests can spend a great time with a magical tropical drink.

The hotel has a mini market and two restaurants, one can accommodate 32 and the other 60 guests. Both have new and fully equipped kitchens. Reservation and all the daily guests accounts are managed with the Hospitality Management System OPERA, sophisticated software adopted by most of the large hotel chains with Automated Online Booking System. This hotel also has a professional Website very well positioned in all the search engines in Internet. The website has an integrated and totally automated Online Booking System. The hotel has a proven history of strong return of investment, excellent bilingual employees and over $7,300,000 in assets.

Possible future developments:

  • 30 rooms on the beach overlooking the ocean
  • Other extra rooms that could be added inside the property
  • A new swimming pool to be built (it’s available a detailed project draft)

Prospective buyers:

  • A business group who wants to get into the hotel business already well underway and susceptible to be easily expanded.
  • Hotel chains interested in expanding their business in Costa Rica. This hotel has everything, is expandable and customizable with a new brand.
  • A healthy family who wants to own a piece of paradise: it has all and more than a luxury villa that costs the same money, can be re-sold easier than a home and its value in the time grows much more than a home.

Characteristics of the Golden Coast of Guanacaste:

The Guanacaste Region where the hotel is located has great demand, is the most popular and visited of the country because of the great climate, the wonderful and clear beaches, its mountains, the wide variety of nature and recreational activities, the growing infrastructure (including the expansion of the international airport of the city of Liberia) and the many international hotel chains, contribute to the steady growth of the whole area.

Thanks to the international flights from Canada, the United States, Europe and Central and South America approximately 800,000 passengers a year visit this region with a trend of constant growth.

This arrival of tourists has attracted a large amount of foreign investment: figures are estimated of around $ 2 billion. Among the international investment it’s important to mention the realization of major hotel chains such as Holliday Inn, Westin, Four Seasons, Riu, Marriott, Hacienda Pinilla, Conchal, and the group Barceló, with golf courses and other spectacular developments. The area, in fact, includes the best facilities in the Costa Rican Pacific and has a warm, dry climate with over 250 days of guaranteed sunshine throughout the year: a long summer season is ideal to use the facilities.

The best investment opportunities in real estate require the combination of a large number of favorable circumstances as in fact occurred in Guanacaste.  The real estate market has higher prices than in the metropolitan area for properties located close to the beaches and the trend is growing.
