hi, I didn't spend the night at hotel, however I did made use of the amenities of the hotel, one of the few places that lets you use its pool without staying, however notice this does not make it a crowded place. The fee to use the pool was of $14, which you were able to consume in beverages and... More

Beautiful hotel, great rooms. Paid $45/night. We arrived a day late without notice and the manager carried our booking over so we didn't have to pay the night we weren't there. Very helpful. A bit tucked away. Need a car to get to Playa Carillo, Samara, or any place to eat. To get there make sure you take Hwy 150... More

This hotel is an amazing bargain for the area (where things tend to be expensive), very nice, clean, pretty hotel with a good restaurant, and great pool for a decent price. I can highly recommend it. Even if you just come for lunch or dinner you can still use the pool, which makes for a relaxing afternoon. Try the tuna... More

My husband and I recently returned from our trip to Costa Rica where we stayed at Hotel Leyenda through a Living Social deal we purchased online. The hotel was beautiful, the rooms were large and had excellent air conditioning. The employees were very friendly (especially Roger at the front desk who helped us coordinate everything). Because we had purchased a... More

My boyfriend and I had the best time at this lovely hotel. It's just about a 2 hour drive from Liberia airport, and while it may not seem picturesque at first, you quickly enter the beautiful Samara and Carillo Beaches. Miles of beach with only handfuls of people made it such a relaxing getaway. The hotel was incredibly friendly and... More

We have friends who have lived in Carrillo for thirty years and when visiting them have often dined at their excellent restaurant. But we never considered staying there until we found ourselves running away from the horror of the Guanamar Hotel and seeking other lodging. Our friends suggested the Leyenda. Wow! Never let the lack of an ocean view deter... More

Stayed two nights weekday on mid march '14. Arrived late night (8:30pm), hotel is over the main road of Carrillo so is easy to be found. Just checked in and went directly to restaurant for dinner which was great and fresh. Gardens, pool and pool bar were great, and you hear frog choirs at night. Room quality was ok, but... More

As a prior reviewer wrote, the front of the hotel is unassuming. Once you walk through the front door, however, we found paradise! The room was very clean, the staff fantastic, and the surroundings beautiful. Roger and Luis will do what they can to accommodate your stay. The surroundings and nearby town are authentic. Nothing touristy about this location, hotel... More

Clean, well appointed rooms. Our room was spacious with a kitchenette and a nice outdoor sitting area. The grounds are beautiful, and the pool was crystal clear. We ate our breakfast and dinners at the hotel restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed both the meals and the service. I would happily stay there again, and again.
