A total scam !!!! Obviously this place has been sold in the last two years....to a rude and arrogant man who has no business running a "resort?" more like a crappy motel. Stay away!! The rooms were okay, however we encountered a "groundskeeper" who was obviously drunk and verbally inappropriate. We were disgusted by the dirty grounds and un-maintained pool.... More

We had a string of bad luck in Tamarindo that made us leave our stay faster than expected. To which we checked out beija flor! It was a fun experience as the beach was right across the street (albeit not swimmable) and the staff was really friendly. I have to admit the wildlife was awesome here! I had a blast!... More

this hotel is very expensive for the facilities it has and what you get. We payed 130$ per night for a room and hotel that are worth no more than 80$. We were so sorry we ordered 3 nights in advance and could not cancel them. It was a big waste of our money. We were in Costa Rica for... More

Beja flor is a great place. Clean, safe, and friendly. This resort is situated perfectly away from town and close to the ocean. Covered with trees and palms throughout the resort it is a relaxing place to spend a few days while we our 3 week trip. Comfortable rooms with bug nets. Great outdoor shower and canopy view.

Although the other reviews are correct: the sandy beach is too far away and it is not very convenient if you do not have a car, there is no bar or food after 3pm, and the salon, spa, and yoga are "on demand" outside people who come when requested. That being said... We enjoyed our stay very much. We took... More

TAs per the recent reviews this place needs a change...It is nothing like what the Beija Flor Resort website describes. It is far from being a resort, it does not offer any services such as yoga, beauty etc. If you do not have a car this place is too far to walk in the heat and dust. The beach across... More

When we prepared our stay in Mal Pais we followed the reviews on TA and Lonely Planet. The best recommended place would be Beija Flor, so we booked it early in April, for six nights, not to risk they would be fully booked in December. We checked absolutely everything on this place of "paradise and luxury", yoga and massage and... More

We were so excited by the write up in lonely planet about this place that we pre-paid the full amount of our stay in advance. It was the biggest disappointment of our holidays in wonderful Costa Rica. The place needs a new manager urgently. There is not enough to eat at breakfast, they only start at 8am, an hour after...

My husband and I traveled to Mal Pais for our honeymoon in Nov-Dec 2012. We booked a house high up in the mountains off of vrbo. The place we booked was a disaster; the house was not cared for, the pool was dirty, there were scorpions in our shower,ect. We took all we could and then drove down the hill... More

This is just the beginning so I'll update my review as this nightmare progresses. My wife and I have been on a long journey through Costa Rica and were really looking forward to finishing our trip at a peaceful resort in Mal Pais. Long story short, so far this place overcharges and lies about the amenities. We were both looking... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Beija Flor Resort is a boutique hotel in Mal Pais, on the southern-most tip of the Nicoya peninsula. Just 2 kilometers from the Cabo Blanco Natural Reserve and steps away from the Pacific Ocean, it provides everything a person seeking relaxation and comfort needs:our eleven spacious rooms and one fully-equipped villa combine warm colors and local materials with a modern design. They are located in a tropical garden, which iguanas, squirrels and many birds call their home. We also offer a fine-dining restaurant, a coffee shop, a pool lounge area, as well as our own spa and yoga deck. ... more   less
