The rooms were spacious, so clean and simply beautiful! The food was very good at the buffet and a la cartes, truly no complaints! The service was very good with a special call out to Yordy at the pool bar, so young and so good at his job, making everyone feel well taken care of, great job Yordy! Also, a... More

First off this Resort is beautiful...BUT... There were some issues as the rooms were not clean at all, bedspreads were stained and dirty and there was hair everywhere on the floor and bedding. The washroom should be the cleanest room in the house but that wasn't the case here. We had to change rooms as they had us down for... More

I arrived at night, and at first I was scared of the place. But I have to admit, first night was pretty great, I sleep like a baby. Guys for 9 dollars the night its a great place. It's clean, fresh, and the staff were very nice, sympathetic, caring. We just love it! And the food, to die for! The... More

This hotel has a nice location and a rather OK staff. The rooms are really funny: small, basic one bed room with shower and toilet. Prices are unbeatable, I guess. The beds however are in a bed condition and it is pretty loud. Overall, I was broken the next morning, so not the best place for a good rest.

Pro: I enjoy me stay there at Guanacaste Hotel. It was convenient to the local bus station for going to other place in Costa Rica or for going in Nicaragua. The room was a bit tiny but for 12$ a night I think it was pretty decent price. Cons: there not place for cooking or to put you meal in... More

The indifferent front desk staff happlessly address your concerns and or complaints and offer little to no insight into travel within the region. Hostel... More

Do not stay here unless you have to. We stayed one night in order to catch an early bus in the morning. Cheap prices and good location (as in close to buses). The rooms are very very small and the mattresses are very uncomfortable. But it served the purpose of a bed to sleep in for the night.

This place is really shabby. Only bother with it if there is no other choice and you need to get the bus for the border which stops directly outside. Other hotels in town cost the same, including breakfast and are far superior we discovered too late. I'm really surprised this place is YHA accredited.

We ended up staying here for one night, after spending nine days in Nicaragua, but needing somewhere to crash for the night before our flight out of Liberia. The rooms are cramped and definitely have seen waaaaay better days (peeling paint, damp floors/walls). The mattress needs to be replaced. However, there was a good cross-breeze with the fan at night;... More
