The El Sitio is an easy taxi ride from the airport, close to grocery stores, ATMs, and restaurants. The staff is very helpful, most speak quite good English, there is a pool, and lots of trees around it. Breakfast is included. We have stayed there three times, and likely will again.

We stayed for 3 nights. Room was clean however there were no towels and it took us almost 2 hours to get them delivered to the room. Linen seemed a bit used (not as in dirt, but as in wear and tear). A/C and TV worked well. However the place (overall) looked old and at some spots uncared for. Food... More

I stayed here in march 16 to 19, 2014. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is good. The location is good. I took short trip to beaches and took hikes in the national parks. The places in the town are within walking distance or take taxis, which is cheap. I enjoyed my stay and I would stay... More

An average hotel with a great location to explore the surrounding region from. Breakfasts were pretty good and staff was very courteous, though all spoke very little English...and I speak very little Spanish. One highlight was the resident cat...Mia, who meowed at our door every morning promptly at 6:30. This was precipitated by our buying cat food for her and... More

We stayed in this BW in Dec 2011. During that visit the hotel was around a average level. We booked this visit for Jan 06 2014 and at the time of booking we asked for a main floor room near the pool. One day before our arrival we called and confirmed our booking and reiterated our desire for a first... More

We will never stay in this Best Western Hotel again because of two big problems. First, the noise from the nightclub across the street kept us awake until early in the morning. Second, it is very obvious that the hotel management has never slept in one of their beds. The pillows were a nightmare-big and very hard. We even tried... More

I was on a medical trip to Liberia and booked the hotel for 2 nights. Basically, the hotel is very well situated near downtown Liberia. Just near by, you will find a shopping plaza, burger king, pizza hunt, Mcdonalds etc....I guess you get the picture..This not a new hotel, a little dated but it is very clean with nice big... More

So, we didn't actually spend a night at this hotel, but we had to spend 3 hours there waiting for a shuttle. The people at the front desk could not have been any nicer to us, holding our bags while we got some food, letting us use the pool, then making multiple calls when our shuttle was late to make...

We stayed at this hotel in Liberia at each end of our stay in Costa Rica, and both times we enoyed a clean comfortable room, good functional (although small) bathroom, lovely pool and grounds, and very nice restaurant with great complimentary breakfast. I booked the hotel on Expedia, and feel the rate of (about) $60 per night was very fair.... More
