Likes: super clean-love that. Mostly comfortable firm bed. Cordial staff. Convenient. Inexpensive. Dislikes: several rooms surround the pool. If you like to sleep past 7am, then this isn't for you. Typical Guanacaste hotels are all tile and every sound travels. Guests playing are loud. Next to highway, trucks jake braking during the night. Overall: it would be nice if guests... More

We arrived late to Liberia and needed a hotel close to the airport where we could crash for the night and then get going in the morning. El Bramadero was perfect for that. A 10 minute drive from the airport, easy check in and check out. There are no frills - the rooms are clean and basic and there's free... More

Checked in here for 5 nights, out front is major roadworks and everything feels dirty, however get a room towards back and you wouldn't know what is happening out front! Staff are helpful, friendly and willing to please. Rooms are comfortable with everything a hotel needs. We enjoyed our stay her and would highly recomend it!

We are retired, budget travelers who have had our share of budget travel experience in Latin America over past decades. We recognize that this is not a luxurious 5 star hotel but it was very comfortable and so much to our liking that we hope to return with family and/or friends in the future. Our original one night stay stretched... More

We were greeted by cockroaches at the front desk. The entire place looked abandoned and neglected. The pool was dismal. I would recommend one of the Best Westerns over this property anytime. We cancelled our reservation and found another place to stay!

The hotel is on the corner of an incredibly busy intersection which was worrisome, but it was surprisingly quiet when you got back where the rooms were. It had great air conditioning, a warm shower, and comfortable bed in a clean room. It had a nice pool, but we didn't have time to go in it. We ate lunch and... More

This hotel is ok if you want to spend the night in Liberia, probably on the day of arrival/departure via Liberia International Airport. Hotel is ok. It's clean, beds are good, breakfast (toast, eggs, rice and beans) ok and there is a swimming pool. Nothing special but perfect for your flight transfer.

An okay place to stay if you want to spend time in Liberia, which is a big if. We spent a night here because we had to catch a flight the next day. In hindsight, we would have much rather stayed in Playa Panama, Playa Del Coco or Playa Harmosa. They are actually closer to the airport and have nicer... More

Hi. Thank you, your feedback is important to know we fulfill your needs as a hotel. Most of our clients are people going to the border as part of their trip and moving to/from the airport, which is 15 minutes away. Staying in Liberia is also very convenient if you want to move to beaches and National Parks. We will... More
