Loved this restaurant! Their food portions are not only delicious but huge which allowed us to have lunch for the following day. Being right on the beach, swinging on the swings and sitting in the oversized chairs made for a fun experience! Would love to...go back at lunch to see the beach during the day.More

We have been patronizing Aquasport for more than ten years. It has consistently been one of our favorite restaurants. However, the last two times we have visited, Tuesday night and another night a few weeks ago, we were totally disappointed. The calamari was not at...all flavorful, our chaufa rice didn't taste as delicious as usual and both of our drinks were not only short on alcohol, but they didn't much resemble the margarita and mojito we ordered. When we went a few weeks ago and had the same mediocore food, we assumed the regular Peruvian chef was on vacation. Now we aren't sure what is going on but hope and pray that Aquasport will address their deficiencies quickly so we can once again return for regular tasty meals!More

If you catch fish in Costa Rica, take them here to have them prepared. We brought Mahi Mahi and wahoo. They were prepared as ceviche, battered, and grilled with great veggies and fries and AMAZING sauces. We have gone to restaurants with our catch several...times, but this was by far the best. It's a simple place right on the beach and the food prep was world class delicious. The wait staff was attentive. Prices were very reasonable. Can't wait to go back to CR to eat here....after catching more fish! Do remember some insect repellent to be comfortable in this great outdoor setting.More

We loved the restaurant and atmosphere at Aqua Sport. The Thai mahi mahi was phenomenal and the tenderloin was so tender, we could cut it with a fork! And the grilled octopus was legitimately the most flavorful and amazing way to start the meal. We...ended the meal with a fantastic brownie and ice cream that, honestly, was the best I’ve ever had. If you can, go before sunset and watch the beautiful skyline as you enjoy a fabulous dinner.More

Aqua had the best mojitos in Playa Hermosa. Many options for seating on the beach. Perfect for watching the sunset.

We came here from the beach as we were walking by to get Dinner and a couple of drinks. The waiter was real attentive. The calamari and rice was very good and the beers were cold. The only issue was we had a lot of...flies (we were outside so it really goes with the territory; just keep one hand available to shew them away.) The sunset was fantastic and the experience was really relaxing. There was a massage table nearby if you still couldn’t get relaxed but, we were chilled enough to not need it.More

This was our favorite place to hang out while staying on Playa Hermosa! Just wander in as you walk down the beach. Don't expect fancy because it's truly a beach restaurant... ON the beach. Food & service were great. Sitting at a table or in...one of the beach chairs drinking a cold beer or cocktail and watching the sunset... and still in your beach clothes or bathing suit. What could be better for your mood and relaxation. We loved it and plan to go back when we visit Guanacaste in spring 2021.More

Highly recommend the Bloody Mary’s, Margarita Especial, Imperials, Patacones, Ceviche, Salad w veggies, Quesadillas.... Everything we...had was fantastic!! Wilky was a great server!More

Avoid this place. We told the waiter a number of times that we had a life threatening seafood allergy. They still delivered us breaded fish - thank god someone else tried it first. Not only that - they then charged us for that fish. Save...your time and maybe your life by going elsewhere.More

We had just got to Playa Hermosa and was walking down the beach for a spot to have a snack. We decided to look at menu and sit down. Plenty of space for social distancing and the staff was extremely polite and helpful. We just...had patacones (fried plantains), coffee and a ginger ale but it was very good and the spot is really lovely.More

That is not a place I would eat for Christmas. I like it for a couple of after dinner drinks or an appetizer before diner.
