The hotel is very nice. Clean rooms and nice facilities among the good things. The pool is very nice and the hotel is very close to the deposit of golfito if you want to go shopping. The bad we got rooms very far away (even when the hotel was almost empty) and didn't get a Internet connection which for me... More

Golfito was our last stop on a 2 1/2 week tour of Southern Costa Rica. We had a 7 am flight on Sansa. The airport is directly behind the hotel. It was very rainy the day we stayed, so we decided to eat dinner at the hotel. The food was good, and there were a lot of options on the... More

A bit dark and creepy and I think this hotel is passed it prime. The pool area looked nice, but not sure how clean it was. This place may have been something at one time and you can see it had some real potential, but staff and restaurant employees know nothing about service. Probably best for the young spring break...

We stay at Hotel Sierra on the way in or out of Golfito. When it was first built, it was advertised more as a luxury hotel next to the Free Port. People visiting the Free Port were required to stay at least overnight, and the hotel was convenient, as it is also very close to the Sansa airport. Over the... More

Hotel Sierra was a pleasant surprise for me and very affordable. At first glance the hotel raised my suspicions, but when I saw the room my comfort level was immediately elevated. The air conditioned room was large, clean, light and airy. It appears to have been recently renovated. The hotel is a very short walk from the Golfito Airport. I... More

Hotel Sierra Resort and Casino is a bit dated (1970s-80s), but clean and quiet. Unlike the rest of Golfito, which is pretty run down and showing the impact of hard economic times of recent years, Hotel Sierra is a quiet, restful oasis. Prices here were reasonable and the complimentary tico breakfast a pleasant start to the day. I found the... More

Taking into account that Golfito is far removed from the touristic epicenters of Costa Rica, the Sierra is a good alternative if you don't want to overspend (if you want that check the Casa Roland) adn yet want to have some comfort. The rooms are spacious and grouped around the pool area - a second row of rooms faces the... More

I visited Golfito with a colleague of mine in November to go to the Deposito, a large duty free area open to tourists and locals to do some shopping for work. Sierra would be wonderful if it were better kept. The pool is huge and there is a nice deck around it for sunning yourself as well as a refreshments... More

I found the hotel rooms to be large, clean and comfortable. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The place is a 2 minute walk from the airport. This is very convenient and since only a handful of planes fly in and out between 7 am and 6pm there really is not that much noise disruption. This place is of... More
