For example, horseplay and negligent behavior are not allowed on the property and especially near any of Cala Luna’s pools, as well as on the beach. Guests should exercise caution, and people staying with us who have children should always be observant to ensure the safety of the kids at all times.
We ask that our guests not engage in behavior that is harmful, disruptive or disrespectful to themselves, to other guests or to our staff. We believe that all of our guests should fully enjoy their stay without being disturbed unnecessarily by others.
Guest responsibility extends to all services, amenities and tours offered by Cala Luna and its partners. These include tours, events, spa services, yoga and surf lessons, whether they are offered onsite or elsewhere.
Cala Luna’s secluded beach is a big perk to our guests who can walk just a few steps from our boutique hotel to Playa Langosta. Our guests should always be especially cautious at the beach, which is public property. The ocean should always be respected and people should be mindful of their safety in and around the water. Please also be cautious when exploring the sections of volcanic rock along the shoreline as some sections can be very sharp and others are slippery. Further, please respect that the beach is a delicate ecosystem and refrain from throwing trash or damaging the beach in any way, and help us tread lightly on the earth.

We’ve taken great care to surround you with lush, tropical vegetation that is native to the area and we work hard to maintain the property in top form at all times. We ask that you as our guest help us to keep the property looking spectacular by walking on the paths and refraining from damaging the vegetation.
Please also respect the Costa Rican wildlife from a safe distance to avoid any unintentional injury.
We reserve the right to terminate the stay of guests who are unable to or fail to comply with the terms and conditions laid out here. If such a case should arrive, the possibility of returning your payment in full or in part may be discussed with the hotel’s management.
