We had came to Flamingo Beach in The Guancaste region for a destination wedding. We wanted to spend some time inland after a week of being on the beach. We had booked Canyon de la Vieja through Expedia. We were a little nervous about the resort, because the photos posted made the pool look fairly small and had heard a... More

Nice spacious bungalows with cute porches outside. My bungalow, nr. 10, was no twinbungalow as most of the others were, and had a great view of the lovely poolarea. Wifi worked quite well. The room did have a coffee maker (but no coffee refills) but unfortunately no fridge. This would have been very comfortable due to the fact that there's... More

I booked this through a touroperator in Costa Rica. Single rooms were big enough, airconditioned, big porch which we used frequently to sit down and relax. Swimming pool is nice to cool down, couple of wooden beds out there, not really comfortable to lie down for longer time (okay for me though). Plenty of birds to spot. Restaurant serves good... More

I had finished hiking in Las Pailas section of Rincon de la Vieja and decided to stop. I was charged $80.00 for the night. Lodging consists of one half of separate cabins.Big rooms. Excellent food in the restaurant. Very friendly staff. Lots of guest activities. Self contained community. The place was crawling with birders from the U.S. when I was... More

Imagine my surprise showing up with a group of 6, thinking we had two rooms and finding out that the place was "full". We called our tour operator Alan and he tried to argue with them. They insisted the reservation was for the night before, even though he had an e-mail to the contrary. We were exhausted and run down... More

The lodge is a large property along the Colorado River canyon.  Rooms are located in outbuildings, with one or two rooms per cabin. Rooms are basic, rustic but met our needs. There were no amenities in the room other than furniture and private bath. Each room has an outdoor sitting area with two chairs. The pool facility and bar were... More

The resort has probably received many great reviews because of the activities you can have near the resort. None of them are actually organized by the resort, so strange that travelers give a rating on the resort in the first place. So the resort itself. Nothing inviting when the enter the property. Unpaved roads with many loose rocks, dark, dirty... More

The hotel is really nice. The facility is a series of small buildings separate from the main buildings. Each room is nicely appointed, but there wasn't hot water in our room. The included breakfast was really good and the dining area is fantastic. Located off of Route 1 on a well maintained road(for Costa Rica), the facility is easily accessible.... More

The hotel is located on the way to the Rincon de la Vieja parc, very convenient. Property of the hotel is large, with many cottages. There are some sidewalks to walk on, the rest of the roads are hard to walk on due to large stones, so the walk to the restaurant at night becomes a bit difficult as there... More
