This beachfront hotel is located at Playa Carrillo in Guanacaste and is destined to be the next hot property on the Nicoya Peninsula. Sitting here on the first ridge, the hotel overlooks white sand beaches and has the best ocean views of any property in the area. You truly could not ask for a better location for a hospitality business or vacation rentals. Located off a paved public road, this property has quick and easy access to restaurants, beaches, and the town of Samara, a popular tourist destination.
Although this property could use some renovations on it’s current infrastructure, there is a lot of potential to develop a luxury vacation experience beyond what is already available in this area. The hotel is zoned to go multiple stories high which means you can have ocean view luxury suites or condos. The property has 26 guest rooms that, after minor renovations, could start generating income.
This beachfront hotel is an incredible opportunity for the buyer with a vision. The property is over five acres and ends right at the fifty-meter line of a local fisherman’s cove next to Playa Carrillo. Just a few steps north of the cove are miles of pristine white sand beaches that you and your guests have access to. This is the only hotel in the area that has both these views and direct beach access.
At the lowest part of the property are 12 cabins set at the tree line just above the ocean. With a little bit of landscaping these could easily have better views of the ocean and they are the quickest walk to the beach. Directly above these are 14 additional ocean view cabins that require no landscaping to maintain the views. All 26 cabins feature sizeable balconies and need just a minor renovation to make them perfect for your new guests.
The history of the hotel begins at the upper area off the main road. Here you will find a few cabins, a restaurant, pool, space where a casino used to be, and the original reception area. Over the years these structures have not been maintained but what you can build in their wake has the potential to be truly incredible. This specific location has the best ocean view of any other hotel or property in the area. This property comes with the rights to go stories high which means you can, not only rent out vacation units, but sell condos as well and there is more than enough space to make this happen. With city ASADA, you can start building immediately. Considering the current infrastructure, you already have a good head start and don’t have to wait on permits. What are you waiting for!?
When you purchase this property you are getting more than just a hotel with a great view. You get a casino license, business license, restaurant license, liquor license, building permits to go multiple stories high, and the ability to be the only hotel in the area with a marina on site.
The local municipal has approved this location for a new marina and is just waiting for the right investor to come along to make this dream a reality. If you build this, you will be the only hotel in the area with a marina which will attract a new level of luxury vacationer. With the added benefit of being able to build a 5-story high condo tower, your guests can park their yacht at the beach and walk to their new ocean view condo or rental. In addition to allowing your guests to travel by way of boat, imagine all of the tours you could run out of your hotel; day trips to Isla Tortuga, whale watching adventures, and coral reef diving.
Playa Carillo is a fairly uninhabited beach, even during the high tourist season. This poses a really great opportunity for and investor to get in before the area explodes. It also offers a great opportunity to create a luxurious escape located right next door to one of the most popular tourist destinations, Playa Samara. In Playa Samara you will find restaurants, bars, and shops lining the white sand beach. All of this is great during the day but when you want to escape the masses, Playa Carillo is the place to do it. It’s located just a five minute drive down a paved, and palm tree lined road. With it’s quiet beaches and sheltered cove it’s the perfect place to kayak, paddle board, snorkel, and snooze on the beach with your family.
