Located just two kilometers from Playa Carrillo, Hotel Leyenda sits atop a rocky hill and is bordered by palm trees to create a gorgeous panoramic view. The area is known for nesting leatherback and olive ridley sea turtles. During the winter months, gray and humpback whales are known to mate in the area. The hotel is a "Blue Flag" recipient because of its environmental and safety standards and it offers a wide variety of amenities for its guests.

Visitors who love to be in the water will adore the family-friendly pool area. The adult swimming pool ranges in dept from 50 centimeters to 1.35 meters, and the children's pool tops out at 30 centimeters. The clear water is the perfect spot to cool off after lunch, and the surrounding patio includes an open-air dining area, relaxing loungers for napping and sunbathing and even a trampoline. The hotel's pool area is open 24 hours a day.

Hotel Leyenda also provides personalized beach services for its customers. A "Super Trailer" is available on Playa Carrillo so that guests can shower and use the restroom without needing to trek back to the hotel. Tanning beds, chairs, tables and hammocks provide plenty of spots to relax in the sand after checking out the waves, and food is available from the hotel's restaurant.

Speaking of food, Hotel Leyenda's dining options include a restaurant and sports bar that serves a variety of local and international fare, including some of the best Italian dishes in the area. The versatile atmosphere is casual and family-friendly but still offers its own touch of romance. Vegetarian dishes are available, and guests are welcome to enjoy the outdoor seating as they sip on something from the property's excellent wine cellar. Reservations are welcome but not required. A snack bar and room service are also available on the property, and the staff is more than happy to provide packed lunches for those who are off to tour Costa Rica for the day.

That isn't all Hotel Leyenda offers, though. The family-friendly property also features darts, a common area with a television and a playground that children love to expend their energy on. Additionally, babysitting services are available for when the grown-ups want a night to themselves.

Hotel Leyenda offers a range of other services, including laundry services, assistance with booking tours or purchasing event tickets, car rentals and airport shuttles.
