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

It's hard to find a safe, affordable and clean hotel in Carrillo. But this property was just the right place to put me at ease. They even have a restaurant on site with free breakfast and 20% off dinners served here. The staff spoke English wish was news to my ears and super friendly, honestly the entire time there I... 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.

We found this very beautiful hotel with the most wonderful pool and cabana and wonderful relaxing garden areas. The hotel is small as to number of rooms but very clean and nice with small kitchen area. The dinning room and bar area are beautiful with wonderful staff. You can catch a bus in front of the hotel and will take... More

We enjoyed the food and their interest in helping us. A couple of miles from Carrillo Beach, beautifull place to relax, snorkel and walk. We took the local bus to Samara, the closer city if you are interested in dancing or having dinner/ drinks in the beach.

We booked this hotel with a Living Social deal & our expectations were exceeded. The hotel rooms are very clean, were a bigger size, ours had a full kitchen & fridge - which came in handy to keep drinks cold & cut up fruit we bought from local vendors. I believe they only have 11 or so hotel rooms but... More
