What we like about this property

With the luxuries of a resort and the intimacy of a B&B, this hotel pairs the best of both worlds. Each room is a private indulgence amid the lush tropical gardens and the loose African theme throughout fits perfectly with the graceful jungle setting. 


Set only 200 yards from the waterfront, this newly renovated boutique hotel has been redesigned with the comforts and luxuries of a five star retreat but with an understated elegance that suits it’s earthy environment. Stylish and quietly sophisticated, the relaxed African motif is an affectionate nod to the previous owners’ legacy and has been lightly expanded on throughout the property. 

Constructed in a dispersed, multi-level layout that allows for individual privacy and seclusion, the hotel is comprised of five separate buildings that include a variety of gorgeous accomodations. 

The luxurious and romantic Honeymoon Suite sits apart from the rest of the resort and features panoramic views from every angle. Beautifully appointed with both modern and ethnic design it’s the perfect hideaway for two with a large private deck, outdoor garden solarium, and two person jacuzzi with ocean views.         

Two junior suites were designed to be both stylish and modern and can accomodate up to a family of four, each featuring spectacular unobstructed ocean views. 

The remaining four deluxe and three standard rooms are all beautifully appointed to the highest standards with distinctive individual style and adhere to the African and tropical themes.  

Using earthy natural elements throughout with a meticulous attention to detail, the warm teak wood, stone and and authentic hand selected art blend beautifully with the modern amenities creating an exotic and enchanting mix.

The Papaya Lounge restaurant and bar sits atop the highest part of the property affording breathtaking ocean views and serves some of the finest local foods and internaitonal cuisine in a chic laid-back lounge. Inspired by its Latin roots, you’ll find the very best and freshest regional inspiration on the menu and enjoy a lively nightlife of music and ambience.

Lounge poolside day or night and enjoy refreshments from the self serve bar and BBQ area in one of the most relaxing spots on the property or you can choose to cool off in the media lounge that features hundreds of movies and a deck for sunset watching.

Mal Pais Oceanview Hotel offers a luxurious and indulgent experience in a relaxing hideaway where you’ll come away feeling pampered and refreshed.  


Concierge services, spa services, housekeeping and laundry services, guest computer, Wifi in each room and throughout the property. Communal satellite TV and DVD library, board games. Snorkeling gear, boogie boards provided. Private parking 


While the world class surf breaks and beaches of Santa Teresa are only minutes away, Malpais offers tranquility in a less densely populated area on a stretch of road with mostly private residences along the beach and hills. The road ends at the Cabo Blanco 

Absolute Reserve, after passing through the village, with its fishing jetties where you can buy the fresh catch of the day.

The southern Nicoya Peninsula is a particularly blessed corner of Costa Rica. Due to its relative remoteness it has retained the vibrant beauty of nature unspoiled by over-development.
