The rooms are dark and musty smelling, but otherwise they are fine. There were quite a few people there so the restaurant served a buffet one night ($15 per person) and the next night we ate off the menu. Breakfast was included and both mornings it was a buffet, they also make eggs to order. If you want the buffet... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel, and yes there was a musty smell in the room all the time. Rooms are big and clean, with A/C, we were close to the swimming pool which is nice and clean, even if the chairs would need to be painted, their are old ! the rooms are very badly soundproofed, you could...

We stayed 2 nights in this hotel during our trip through Costa Rica. The hotel is very well located; about a 5 minutes’ drive from the Panamerican 1, fifteen minutes from Liberia and 25 minutes to the Las Pailas Ranger Station of the Rincon de la Vieja National Park. Checking in and out went smooth and friendly. The room was... More

The place is really nice and relaxing. The rooms are comfortable and clean. It's very close to Liberia, so you can go out at night and visit the city for dinner. We did tubing and it was really fun. Take some bug repellent just in case, there were a lot of mosquitoes. El lugar es lindo y relajante. Los cuartos... More

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
