We absolutely loved our stay! The resort is surrounded by foliage, animals and beauty. This was our fist visit to Costa Rica and our favorite 2 parts are weather (no humidity) and excursions (horseback riding, white water rafting, zipline). Borinquen can help schedule your excursion so ask the front desk. Staff is very sweet from front desk to restaurant. The... More

I stayed 2 days in this very far hotel. The rooms are very good and also very clean. The girl from front desk doesn't understand English and my communication and doubts were not clarified :( the restaurant is okay but the service is very bad and slow. In my last lunch I waited 30 minutes and no one came to... More

We had an amazing time and the staff was very attentive and gave us personal service. The food was really good and the resort is beautiful. The zip line staff was wonderful with my daughter who got scared during the event. Horse back riding in the mountains was beautiful and the staff was very helpful.

This was our third trip to Borinquen and look forward to returning soon. The drive up is a dirt road and quite bumpy, however, it is worth the trip. Upon arrival you are greeted with a cool tropical drink as well as cold wash cloths to freshen you right up. The staff is all so nice and accomodating. Once parked... More

My title stems from the rough drive to this AMAZING hotel in the hills! It's quite a trek to get there, but so worth it once you get there. The grounds are absolutely breathtaking, very green and clean. The restaurant and outside eating area are exceptionally clean and the food is delicious! The hot spring, mud bath and pool areas...

I love Costa Rica, but when the heat and humidity of the beach get to you you can escape to the mountains. Hotel Borinquen is the perfect place to do that. The drive there is quite interesting but worth it. The rooms as very nice, large, mostly individual cottages. The food was excellent! Breakfast is included with the room rate.... More

This luxury hotel resides in an isolated area in the mountains near Liberia. The road is difficult (11 kilometers of a stones), and then you reach paradise. It is a very well maintained resort, excellent bungalows, large area of trees and grass, a good restaurant (in costarican terms....), and the e spa area, There are three hot spring pools (based...

Resort is beautiful, the rooms are big and very well kept. Service was superb. Only a few things to keep in mind. It is on a mountain, be prepared to have some steep walks getting up and down to the room from the main lobby and restaurant. It is isolated, there is nothing around there and any place you go...

My husband and I RARELY have any time away from our busy life of work and kids. This was PERFECT for us and so relaxing and romantic! We were able to do horseback riding, zip lining, waterfall hike, mud pools, hot spring pools, and a wonderful meal all in just 1 night and 2 days.

Stopped at this resort with a tour group. The property is really nice. You will get to see monkeys and other wild life on this resort so keep your cameras with you. The rooms however are very minimalist.. We were expecting more. Our room had two small hard beds, not very comfortable. Recommend requesting a bungalow/villa in the lower area.... More
