Our group of 8 (two families of four with children age 7-10) really enjoyed our stay at Blue River Resort and Hot Springs. The location was off the beaten track keeping the crowds down, but the resort was beautiful and relaxing. I could not have imagined a better zip line canopy tour, including high trees and a waterfall with excellent... More

We stayed at the Blue River for 4 nights in March this year. I would like to start off by saying if I could give the tour guides a separate rating, it would be 10 stars! They were all so great. Ronald, who did the zipline tour was awesome. We also did the Cano Negro birdwatching tour and the Waterfall... More

We were down in Tamarindo and decided to head up to the Rainforest before taking off for home. We had a one night stay booked, with the plan to spend one full day and a half a day at this resort. I'd highly suggest two nights. It's not enough to say the road to Blue River is a dirt road,... More

The resort is located in a remote area. You need 4 WD car to get there, but, while driving, you see real unspoiled countryside, and views are amazing. My husband and I were really tired and needed to get some rest before starting the adventurous part of the trip. We spent 3 nights there, and the resort was perfect for... More

Stayed 4 nights and 5 days with a group of 6 people. I decided to do something different this year and picked a remote area in order to enjoy the outdoors and the activities they offered. Right off the bat I did not like the pricing for their transportation service. We had a group of six and they told us... More

My wife, 12-year-old son and I stayed here for the first two nights of our Costa Rica vacation. When we first started planning the trip, we thought we'd drive straight to the Arenal Volcano area after landing in Liberia. But as I researched more, I decided we needed to stay at least one night somewhere closer to Liberia so that... More

We stayed two nights, we could not stay our third night. The resort is peaceful and nice but nothing to do unless you want to pay a lot of money for tours. The food is ok not great. Our first night one of the wait staff yelled at us because we entered the restaurant at 530 to try to use... More

I went to this resort with my husband and 15 year old son on recommendation of a friend who currently lives in Costa Rica. Our friend met us at the Liberia airport and drove us to this magical resort. It took close to two hours to get there. Just a warning, the last 20 k of the road is very... More

Our cabin and porch were large and comfortable. The many swimming pools of varying temperatures in the garden were fun and relaxing. The guides provided by the hotel were knowledgable and good company. The food was good and reasonably priced. The road into the hotel is indeed a 20 km of bump, bump, bump but worth the effort.

My husband and I stayed for two nights and we came just to chill. The last 20 km are certainly a challenge but that is all part of the adventure. We have a Jeep so the drive in was not a problem. Our cabin had a king bed and lots of space, we did not feel cramped at all. The... More
