Cons - Not transparent on pricing (Offered pickup for free... More

We stayed with Kenneth at La Boruca on Dec 24 & 25. It was a great location, just outside the city, so it felt like an escape. The property is beautiful, as are the rooms. Kenneth has great internet access and a huge collection of movies and music in each room. We ate dinner at the hotel both nights. On... More

La Boruca is amazing. Ken is great host from before you arrive until after you leave. The room is cozy, well laid out, and has all the amenities you need. Ask Ken to help you plan your stay, and he will gladly setup transportation and tours for you. I would recommend La Boruca to anyone looking for a place to... More

I stayed at La Boruca for only one night. I felt welcomed immediately. The room was perfect. The food was delicious. You're a ways out of town, which was perfect for me, but without a car you won't likely be going out and about. I'd happily return.

This was our second stay at La Boruca (each three nights). We were with a group that occupied all four rooms. All group members were equally satisfied with the accommodations (which are spacious, comfortable and clean), the ample daily breakfast (included), and the delicious meal prepared by Kenneth and his wife during one of our nights. We also enjoyed the... More

Our private room had a big bed, tv, WiFi, PC for Internet usage, a host of newer movies for viewing, fridge, safe, fresh towels & linens, free breakfast & excellent coffee each morning.
