A very nice little hotel in the middle of an old banana company area. The hotel combines the good taste and the art of tropical painting, with sea spattering. Comfortable rooms and a very nice pool area, sauna and other entertainment. It is located very close to areas of tropical rain forest and lush vegetation. Do not miss the pleasure... More

Best pool area I've enjoyed since Hotel Granada in Nicaragua. As other reviews have stated the guest services needs some work from my perspective. Upon arrival I had an issue with my checkin which was rectified very nicely and appropriately by the front desk woman. But, I wasn't given any other information at all except where my room was.

While in Costa Rica I visited the pool and the pool area restaurant a couple of days. The pool area is gorgeous. But the service is incredibly bad at times. I was ignored by the server by the pool. I finally stopped her and asked for a menu and she still never brought me one while she continued to take... More

This hotel was a gem in disguise; hidden on a dirt road in Golfito, it was the most comfortable stay. The hotel itself was very classy and clean, as the rooms had great a/c and classy working accommodations. My favorite part of our stay was the extravagant pool that was located just across the road from the hotel; a nice... More

This was a Beautiful hotel, clean, great pool, nice beds linens and pillows. What we didn't like was the restaurant menu very limited. It is 2.5 km from the water taxi to San Jaminez, and there is no other restaurants within walking distance. The servers in the pool and restaurant were not very attentive, and the activities director could not... More

We spend four days three nights in Casa Roland in Golfito Costa Rica. Every year or so we go shopping in the tax free zone in Golfito and the close by border to Panama. We have to stay at least two nights in order to get all the stuff done, and over the years we tried out several places there.... More

Loved the place. All set up for 5-star atmosphere, but with no 5-star clientele. Casa Roland is beautiful, but has no aura. We were the only group there most of the time. That's cool sometimes, but still paying 4-star prices? I did love the place, gorgeous, but it was like staying in a museum, with no price break.

Casa Roland was a beautiful little gem. Perfect for an overnight before we caught our boat to Play Nicuesa in the morning. They opened the restaurant just for us as we were late getting in and even sent us with a boxed breakfast in the morning since we left so early. Our room was very pretty and the lobby and... More

When going to Golfito there is only one reason to go there and that is to buy a new appliance or TV in the duty free zone. You must stay over night to be eligible for duty free. The Roland is by far the nicest hotel in the area. The staff at reception had limited english so they were not... More
