La Finisterra is a very comfortable hotel with a fabulous view. My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights and I wish it could have been more. They have clean, comfortable rooms with a/c. Ask for a room with an ocean view and you won't be disappointed. We were greeted with a refreshing fruit drink upon arrival. The hotel... More

Hotel La Finisterra is a lovely, airy hotel in Playa Hermosa. The beach is pretty calm and there isn't a lot going on in the area, except for swimming and beach-going, which is very nice (but that better be what you want to do). The hotel is really clean, well kept and tasteful, with a terrific open-air restaurant with a... More

We enjoyed three restful nights at Finisterra at the end of June. There was just one night of bad storms. The owners were extremely helpful in making suggestions about the area. JOhnny at the front desk helped us rent a car for the second half of our trip. There was a computer available for guest use. The restaurant was delicious.... More

If you go to Playa Hermosa, you've got to stay at Hotel La Finisterra. The view is amazing and the hotel staff (Shiela and George in particular) is extremely hospitable. Check out the website for pictures. If you don't stay there, at least dine there during the sunset--the best view ever! Most of the time, restaurants with great views don't... More

My girlfriend and I just got back from a fantastic week at La Finisterra. And though it's the so-called "green season" (wet season everywhere else), I can't imagine going at any other time. It rained a couple of days during the early evening, but our plans were never hampered by it. The upside is that the mountains were lush and... More

We found this hotel through Trip Advisor, but booked it directly. The website was a bit difficult to located, but you can find it at lafinisterra dot com. We realized from this trip, that the type of experience you have depends on what you want to get out of it...and given our wants, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had... More

I stayed at La Finisterra the first week in March with three girlfriends. The view really is one of the most incredible things. I will not forget it soon. The rooms are simple,clean, roomy with a/c and most have ocean views -- athough you won't be spending much time in them. Cerveza is inexpensive (about $2 a bottle), and the... More

We stayed here for only one night before our flight out of Liberia. Overall, we were very satisfied and would have stayed a couple of nights longer and if we returned to Playa Hermosa we would definitely stay at this hotel again. -Incredible out-of-this world View -Excellent food (breakfast, too) -Great rooms (you can hear the waves from certain rooms)...

I agree with all the previous reviews.The food is excellent. This "hotel" (it is more like a villa) has the best restaurant around.The current chef is from Barcelona, the previous chef was from Peru.The menu reflects local and international tastes.Wines are personally selected by owner, many from Argentina.After your fist day there, bartender knows your preference for cocktails.The owners are...
