Had dined here on our last visit to the area and based on that experience, we made a reservation for our last evening dinner. Apparently the restaurant is under new management since our last visit. Good: Excellent view. We took some beautiful family photos around the pool area. Not so Good: Table was not available upon arrival (in spite of... More

I just completed a 10-night stay at Hotel La Finisterra (LF) during my first trip to Costa Rica, and I thought that the hotel was great! I chose LF after seeing that they were ranked the #1 hotel in Hermosa Beach (Guanacaste) on TripAdvisor. They certainly didn’t disappoint—I enjoyed my stay and would happily recommend them to others. The service:... More

If you want a quiet place, with a gorgeous view and friendly staff, then this place is for you. Since re-opening over a year ago under new ownership, the room have been tastefully redecorated and upgraded. The décor is very relaxing and contemporary classic; both inside and out. The restaurant serve good affordable meals. My group are fans of the... More

This hotel is at some distance (mostly vertical) from the beach, but offers great views of the coast and the town. It has a lovely pool and dining area. Breakfast was good and the rooms were adequate. Playa Hermosa is convenient to the Liberia airport and a very pleasant beach. The surrounding area has some very good restaurants.

We have been to La Finisterra twice and the service has been pretty bad….We had to send the food back twice. We ordered the octopus and it tasted like rubber!! I will not be back nor will I recommend it. The manager was very rude!

My stay at Hotel La Finisterra was truly a great stay! Stayed from Aug 20-Aug 25 and could not have picked a better place. The hotel is 30 minutes away for Liberia Airport. Nice size rooms, clean and comfortable. I stayed in the king size room facing the ocean. Every morning I awoke to the most beautiful breathtaking views. In... More

We had a lovely stay at La Finisterra in early August. We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed every second of our stay. The views were breathtaking and service was fantastic. The rooms are clean and cool, neither super stylish nor bare bones. We enjoyed a tasty breakfast each morning pool-side with incredible views of the beautiful and quiet Playa... More

Spent two nights at La Finisterra recently. Helpful staff, Graciella, Jorge and Andrea were gracious and helpful. Highly recommend the restaurant for dinner. Clean rooms with excellent a/c and water pressure in the shower. We had a room facing the jungle, but witnessed some excellent sunsets. Patio around the pool (which is fairly small for swimming) offers nice vistas of... More

My friend and I stayed here for 2 days and 3 nights. It was a lovely hotel. The hotel staff was incredibly nice and helpful and we learned a lot about Costa Rica and the surrounding area from Jorge, one of the hotel waiters. The hotel staff also helped us set up our taxi to the hotel and our taxi... More
